Payment Protection Insurance: Safeguarding Yourself From Financial Threats

Get a quote

Numerous insurance plans have been designed by insurance firms so as to comfort the customers and ease them through difficult stages of their life. Some insurance plans such as the Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance plans and the Rental Payment Insurance plans secure the commoner against any situation where the income of the person is affected. The Payment Protection Insurance plan is a broader category of insurance which is very similar to the other two insurance plans and protects the policy holder against circumstances where the policy holder is unable to earn resulting from dismissal from the responsibility or due to accident, sickness and death. It is very similar to the unemployment benefits issued in many countries termed differently as Jobseeker’s Allowance in UK, Unemployment compensation in US and in many other countries including Japan, Sweden, Canada, China, Australia, Italy and several others.

The plan is designed to protect the user from outstanding debt of any form including loan or overdraft which is served by a bank or any other financial corporation or any credit providers in this regard. This plan is devised in such a way as to protect the policy holder till he can get back on his feet and start earning or as long as the plan is valid. In most cases, the validity period of the support will span for 12 months. In the case of expiration of the policy, then the policy holder will have to resort to any other method to repay the debt. Normally, this period is sufficient enough for any person to start earning and repay the debt.

Insurance firms award grants of the Payment Protection Insurance policy only after keen examination of the scenario to avoid leveraging of the protocol in wrong sense. The payments to the Payment Protection Insurance policies are issued by the insurance firms after careful assessment of the candidate’s case including his employment records. The policy holder is eligible to receive the payments by the firm only on the case that his inability to earn was caused not as a result of his misdeed. If the person resigned voluntarily from his job, then he is not eligible to avail the benefits. Similarly, the earning capacity and the savings of the partner are also considered before the grant is issued.

There are policies of different sorts issued by the insurance firms as per the requirement of the user. However, the pros and cons of PPI issued by the particular firm which is considered have to be thoroughly researched by the user before the purchase to verify if it would match the need of the user.
