Ask Dave

Mortgage Life Insurance?

Mortgage life insurance is a gimmick - always buy term life insurance that is ten times your annual income.

QUESTION: GB asks if he needs mortgage life insurance.  Is it a gimmick?

ANSWER: You should never buy mortgage life insurance.  It’s ten to twenty times more expensive than the same amount of term life insurance.  It is a gimmick.  Always buy enough term life insurance – about ten times your annual income – to take care of your family in case of death.
