Mortgage Protection Insurance for Cancer Survivors in Ireland

On June 7th, 2023, Insurance Ireland announced the complete details of their new Code of Practice for Underwriting Mortgage Insurance for Cancer Survivors.

Under this Code, insurance companies will not consider a cancer diagnosis if the person is in complete remission and active treatment ended more than 7 years before the application (or more than 5 years if the individual was under 18 at the time of diagnosis)

Cancer survivors can get mortgage protection (reducing life insurance) of up to €500,000 for a mortgage on their primary residence.

Mortgage Protection Insurance clears your debt to the bank if you die.

So, if you (or your partner) meet an early, very sad end, your home becomes theirs, debt-free.

If you didn’t have Mortgage Protection, the debt would keep on keepin’ on and there’d only be one of you to pay it off – which, again, given the apocalyptic state of the housing market, would be really, really rough.

Anyway, the lender won’t actually give you a mortgage without Mortgage Protection, so you’re gonna have to cough up for it, whether you want to or not.
