OCBC Mortgage Protect Advantage: What You Need to Know
OCBC's Mortgage Protect Advantage is a term reducing mortgage insurance plan that provides financial coverage for your home loan. Should you die, become totally or permanently disabled or get diagnosed with a terminal illness, you will get a one-off payment of your remaining sum assured to cover your outstanding home loan. OCBC Mortgage Advantage provides a few valuable benefits that are rarely seen with other mortgage insurance plans. For instance, it will provide a full refund of the premiums you paid if you do not make a claim during the policy term. Thus, if you pay off your home loan in full, you would have essentially received free coverage. Furthermore, you will get back at least 40% of the premiums you have paid if you surrender your policy from the 8th policy year. This is in contrast to other plans that don't provide any refunds if you choose to surrender. If you are unsure about your living situation in the future (moving countries, choosing to rent or not needing the policy), this can be a good option to have so you don't lose all the premiums you put in.
To qualify for the plan, you need to be between the ages of 18-65 (ANB). You will also need to answer two health questions for underwriting purposes. Depending on your age and home loan, you will have up to a S$1-S$1.5 million sum assured. You can also choose to get a critical illness add-on that will provide additional protection in the event you get diagnosed with a critical illness (heart attack, cancer, liver failure).
