Accident, Sickness and Unemployment (ASU) insurance is commonly known as Mortgage Payment Protection. Accident Sickness Unemployment is a short term policy designed to specifically protect mortgage payments. It usually pays out at 100% up to 125% of the repayment amount, and the insurance policy usually covers up to 12, 18 or 24 months.
Accident, sickness and unemployment insurance can be taken out separately; i.e. Accident Sickness cover can be taken out to replace other regular repayments.
Many people take out ASU because:
• The mortgage is often the most important payment
• State welfare in not enough to cover payments
• The expectation is that any financial problem is only going to be short term in the hope that employment will resume
• ASU is easy to buy as underwriting is limited and any previous conditions are often excluded.
