Is Unemployment Covered?

Most mortgage protection policies do not cover unemployment.  However, many of them will (not all of them because they’re not all created equal) have beneficial unemployment riders, such as… If you are unemployed, outside of your own control, you are not responsible for making the premium payments for your policy during that time. You need to know about this, and your agent needs to tell you if this is a built-in benefit. The reason this is so important, is, if you become unemployed your premium payment will be paid by your life insurance company. They pay themselves and you do NOT have to pay them back. The bill is getting paid- by them. It’s a strange concept. But, when people are out of work, this is hugely helpful. Especially now during the coronavirus pandemic. Knowing that your premium will be covered even though you are unemployed will help relieve your stress during these trying times.
