Insurance to secure your loan repayments

Insurance that covers you and your family in case of unexpected setbacks in loan repayment.

Many borrowers scale their loan repayments based on their regular earnings on the assumption that their level of income will not change. Nowadays, the terms for home loans are rather long. As a long loan term progresses, you and your family’s financial situation may change.

You can choose the content of the insurance policy

Loan protection insurance is available for both wage earners and self-employed persons. The insurance consists of two cover policies, of which you can choose one or both.

Wage earners can choose from the following:

  1. Cover for disability and unemployment
  2. Cover against accidental permanent disability or death

Self-employed persons can choose from the following:

  1. Protection against disability and serious illness
  2. Cover against accidental permanent disability or death

Why loan protection insurance?

Insurance policies that cover loan repayment have various names such as loan protection insurance or insurance for loan repayment. The compensation paid by OP’s Loan protection insurance can be used to make repayments on an existing loan, if your income decreases due to illness or incapacity for work, for example. The insurance will cover the monthly instalment (monthly repayment) amount of your loan up to a maximum of €2,500 per month.

In the case of accidental permanent disability or death, the remaining loan can be completely paid off, though only up to a maximum of €300,000.

Loan protection cover alone or together

The insurance can be taken out as either single or joint cover for a loan you have taken out with another person. In that case, each borrower chooses the cover they want, regardless of the other borrower’s choices. Loan protection insurance is also suitable for a loan taken out by a self-employed person for themselves.

You can take out Loan protection insurance for both home loans and bank loans. The insurance is available for both existing and new loans. The insurance is loan-specific, and it can be taken out for one or more loans.

How much does Loan protection insurance cost?

The premium for Loan protection insurance depends on such factors as the loan amount and the insured person’s age. Request an offer from your bank.

How to buy loan protection insurance

  1. Book an appointment for a phone/online meeting or at a branch.
  2. Sign the insurance application in the Electronic Signature Service or at a branch.
  3. The insurance is valid.

You can take out Loan protection insurance if you are aged between 18 and 59, healthy and have resided in Finland for the last 12 months.

The home loan could then be paid off using the compensation equalling the insured person’s remaining loan amount, which was 69,100 euros.

Claims under the insurance will be paid out to the insured person, with the exception of death benefit that is to be paid to the beneficiaries chosen by the policyholder.

A beneficiary clause is a special clause in the insurance policy that prevails over a last will and testament and marital agreement, for example. This means that the benefit will be paid after the insurance event according to the valid beneficiary clause, irrespective of the policyholder’s/insured person's existing or subsequent last will and testament or marital agreement.

The insurance application shows the beneficiaries. They may be one or more persons.

Form of the beneficiary clause

A beneficiary clause and its cancellation or change must always be filed in writing with AXA. You can cancel or change it by filling in the form.

Indicate a new beneficiary clause in the form in its entirety. This new beneficiary clause invalidates the previous one. Send the changed beneficiary clause by post or fax to AXA. Contact information can be found at the bottom of the form.
