What is Decreasing Term Life Insurance?

Decreasing Term Life Insurance is an insurance product that is similar to Level Term Life Insurance except that is usually used to protect against a debt, think Mortgage. As the amount you owe on the mortgage decrease over time, so does the amount that you are covered for.

What this means is that if you die during the lifetime of your policy then your debts will be cleared, and your family will not be left with repayments that could become unaffordable.

How does Decreasing Term Life Insurance work?

You will provide us with the details of your mortgage, amount outstanding and final repayment date, and we will be able to advise the correct amount and term you need to be insured for.

Payments for Decreasing Term Policies can be lower than Level Term Insurance, but this is because the payments are the same through the lifetime of the policy, they do not reduce as your amount of cover reduces.
