If you have a mortgage, it makes good sense to insure it. Owning a debt-free home is an objective of any sound financial plan. In addition, making sure your mortgage is paid off in the event of your death will benefit your family greatly.
The question is, should you purchase this coverage through your lending institution or from a life insurance company? A good rule of thumb to follow when searching for advice? Ask an expert!
So, while it might be convenient when completing the paper work for your new mortgage to just sign one more form, be aware that it might be a costly decision.
