What is Mortgage and Living Insurance?

With Mortgage and Living Cover you’ll receive regular payments if you’re unable to work due to sickness or injury to help cover everyday expenses, like mortgage payments. 

There are many ways to structure your cover and premiums, allowing you to tailor cover to your needs, lifestyle and importantly, budget! It’s flexible too, so you can adapt it as your financial circumstances change.  

Offering agreed level of cover, gives you certainty about how much you could receive if you need to claim – there’s also a more cost effective option that offsets any other payments you might receive such as ACC.

Mortgage and Living cover is packed with features and you can boost the cover further with optional benefits.

Who is it for?

We understand that at different stages of life, people need different types of cover. Watch the below videos to see two examples of how Mortgage and Living Cover could work for you.

Optional benefits you can choose to include:

If you have an existing policy with Asteron Life, your policy may be different from our current on-sale products, so it’s a good idea to check things with your adviser.

There are terms and conditions that apply to all benefits within Mortgage & Living Insurance. Don't worry though, your adviser can take you through these and what they mean.

Other types of cover

Another option you could consider is Workability Insurance which also provides a monthly benefit. Workability Insurance is a form of Income Protection but it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles so can be a great cost effective option.
