Decreasing term life insurance

Churchill Life Insurance is provided by Legal & General.

Do you want to help protect your repayment (capital & interest) mortgage in the event of your death? Then Mortgage Decreasing Term Assurance could help you. If you die while the policy is running, the policy will pay out a cash sum which can be used to help pay off an outstanding repayment (capital & interest) mortgage, giving your family one less thing to worry about.

How does Decreasing term life insurance work?

Mortgage Decreasing Term Assurance is designed to help protect a repayment (capital & interest) mortgage or loan. The cash sum will decrease over time, roughly in line with the way a repayment (capital & interest) mortgage decreases.

Important Information

  • This is not a savings or investment product and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made
  • Please read the Policy Booklet before applying
  • If you intentionally take your own life in the first 12 months of your cover, your policy will be cancelled and will not pay out. However all premiums paid will be refunded.
  • You may want to make sure that the policy is running long enough to cover the duration of your mortgage, otherwise you may not be fully protected.
  • If you choose decreasing cover there are some circumstances when the cash sum paid out might not be enough to pay off your mortgage in full. For example if your mortgage interest rate averages over 10% during the policy term or if you change your mortgage.
  • If you stop paying premiums before the end of your policy, your cover will end 30 days after your missed payment.
