What is Home Loan Insurance

As evident from the above, home loan insurance is a plan that helps your family in paying the outstanding loan liabilities. This provides mental relief to loan borrowers. Needless to say, home loan insurance is beneficial for both you and your home loan financier.


Different banks have different criteria for insurance. But the most common criterion is - Borrower's age to be minimum 18 years and maximum 50 years.

Factors Affecting Premium for Home Loan Insurance

There is an inverse relationship between your age and the amount of insurance premium you pay.

Older people have to pay a higher premium as compared to the younger ones. Again, if home loan amount and tenure increase, the premium also gets accelerated.

Another indispensable factor is - Medical history of the borrower. If someone suffered a heart attack in the past, his premium will become more as compared to the one who is in good health and has a clear medical record.
