Protecting yourself and ensuring you can always pay your mortgage

As a borrower, taking out a loan of any kind can be an overwhelming and complex process. This isn’t helped by all the different financial product naming conventions, and acronyms that you will undoubtedly encounter.

The “Great Australian Dream” is to own your own home, with 70%* of the population doing just that. Unfortunately saving for your dream property is becoming more and more difficult. With rising house prices, generating the traditional 20% deposit required to get a loan is harder than ever. Thankfully with the introduction of Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI), borrowers can get onto the property ladder much sooner with a smaller deposit.

4) What if I can’t afford to purchase Loan Protection insurance?



Loan Protection Plan

Many Australians with mortgages do not have adequate cover in place to service their loan in the event they lost their job, suffered a serious illness, injury or death.

It’s important that you take the time to consider how you would meet your loan repayments should the unthinkable happen. ALI Group’s Loan Protection Plan is a simple, easy to understand and affordable solution that provides peace of mind by helping protect you and your family, your assets and your lifestyle.
