What Type of Life Insurance Can Help With Mortgage Payments?
Any type of life insurance policy’s death benefit can help pay down a mortgage or other housing expenses. The type of life insurance you choose depends on your individual situation. Consider factors like your income, your partner’s income, your monthly expenses, any debts you have and the potential cost of funeral expenses when considering life insurance.

*Any loans taken from your life insurance policy will accrue interest. Any outstanding loan balance (loan plus interest) will be deducted from the death benefit at the time of claim or from the cash value at the time of surrender. If the loan balance grows too large for the cash value to support it, the policy could terminate.
