Mortgage Life Insurance

An insurance policy that pays off a policyholder's mortgage in the event of his/her death. This protects a mortgage holder's heirs in the event of his/her untimely demise. There are two basic types of mortgage life insurance. Decreasing term insurance charges premiums that decrease as the mortgage holder gradually pays off the mortgage. Level term insurance has premiums that do not decrease; it is recommended for borrowers with interest-only mortgages. Both types of mortgage life insurance exist only for the life of the mortgage. If the beneficiary dies after he/she has finished paying for the house, no mortgage life insurance is paid out.
