Here’s a typical example.
Sally is 33. John is 35. They’re both office workers and non-smokers. They have a joint home loan of $180,000. Sally and John have each taken out a policy to cover themselves for 100% of their home loan. That way if anything happens to either of them, the mortgage will be paid off in full.
Here’s what it would cost them:
|Sally - Per month||Sally - Per week||John - Per month||John - Per week|
|Death & Disability||$26.85||$6.20||$28.07||$6.48|
|Death, Disability & Redundancy||$35.04||$8.09||$36.81||$8.49|
