Decreasing Term Assurance

The least expensive of the Term Assurances, Decreasing Term Assurance does what it says on the label. The level of benefit decreases as the term of the policy runs; the premiums do not however reduce. The premiums are fixed throughout the policy term, and the premium level is lower than that of Level Term Assurance as a result of the decreasing benefit. This type of life assurance is commonly used to protect Capital & Repayment mortgage debt.

Typically the policy reduces the protection assuming a Mortgage Interest Rate of 10%. Many are paying mortgage interest at around 5% and, providing interest rates do not go over 10%, the benefit should reduce slower than the mortgage debt, ensuring repayment of the mortgage debt in full. However, there is no guarantee that the level of cover will match the outstanding debt upon a claim.

  • Provides a lump sum on death or terminal illness which can be used to cover outstanding repayments on a mortgage or loan
  • The level of cover reduces each year - in line with the sum you owe
  • It is designed to pay out a lump sum if you die within the term of the policy. The sum assured reduces in line with your mortgage debt and should cover any outstanding balance should the policyholder die within the term of the policy

Please be aware that in some cases this type of assurance is based on an assessment of the health of the applicant.
