Mortgage protection insurance is an add-on insurance that may be added to your home loan.

Mortgage protection insurance is a form of consumer credit insurance and often falls into the category of junk insurance. Just like other consumer credit insurances, it generally covers you for one or more of the following:

  1. Life
  2. Disability
  3. Involuntary Unemployment
  4. Accident and Illness

Am I eligible for a refund?

There are many reasons why you may be eligible for a refund.

1. It might be worthless to you. For example, depending on your employment contract at the time you purchased the policy, it may not cover you.

2. Premiums are high. Premiums can be expensive as mortgages are sold for decades.

3. Payments might not cover the whole mortgage. For example, mortgage protection may only cover you for a brief period. That means, that there will still be a substantial amount left to pay on your mortgage.

4. A sneaky sales process. A salesperson will sometimes add mortgage protection onto a home loan without explaining what insurance is, or without you knowing.
