Why Insure Your Mortgage With Us?

Private Life Policy

Protects your family

Gives you control — you own the policy, choose the beneficiary, and select the type of coverage you want.

Fully portable — your plan will continue when you move and you don’t have to buy a more expensive policy (if you are older).

Provides flexibility — upon death, your family has the option of paying off the mortgage or investing the funds if the economic conditions warrant it.

Offers you a choice of plans and benefits — you choose the type of policy and benefits you want.

Allows shopping for interest rates — upon renewal, you are not tied to one lending institution and can shop around for a better mortgage rate.

Gives you a choice of amount of coverage — you choose the amount of coverage you require and the coverage does not decrease as the mortgage is reduced.

Provides stable coverage — BBI Life plans have built-in grace periods from 30 to 90 days for missed premiums.

Coverage is renewable and convertible — term plans can be renewed after the initial term or can be converted to a permanent plan without a medical.

Expert advice — you deal with a professional insurance advisor and all your coverage can be through one broker.

The Bank

Protects the bank

Policy controlled by the bank — the bank is the beneficiary.

Not portable — protection runs out when the house is sold or traded.

Inflexible — the mortgage must be paid off on death regardless of other investment opportunities.

Limited choices — limited plans and benefits offered and no conversion privileges.

No shopping — unless you are willing to pay a higher premium and are insurable.

No choice of coverage amount — coverage must be equal to the mortgage and decreases as the mortgage is reduced (the price does not!).

No stability — a missed payment often means lost coverage.


No expert advice — you deal with a banker about insurance matters and your coverage is spread all over.

How a private life policy
could save you money


If a homeowner with 21 years left on a 25-year, 4%, $150,000 mortgage dies today without mortgage insurance, 252 future payments of $789 would be required before the house is paid off, a total of $198,836. Had a mortgage life insurance policy been

in force, it would have paid off not only the balance of the principle ($134,788) but would also have eliminated future interest charges of $64,057 which would otherwise have to be paid by the survivor over the next 21 years.
