Life Insurance Information You Should Know If You Are A Veteran

By: Craig Thornburrow

After serving their country many soldiers return home disabled so it is good to see that at least there are some programs, like the VeteraNs Mortgage Life Insurance policies, that are there to help. For veterans who have been severely disabled because of their service these policies are put in place to help their families if they should die.

A mortgage is a big responsibility and losing a loved one is an enormous loss that should not have on top of it the loss of ones home because of an inability to pay the mortgage. The veterans association is there not only to help the soldier buy also to help the families left behind.

This type of life insurance policy is very limited to the group of people who are able to use it. It is only open to those who have received a grant from the veterans association to adapt their home or to build a new home, with special modifications to their disability.

If the veteran is one of those soldiers who came back from their days of service with a severe disability the home grant can be up to ninety thousand dollars. Then if the veteran takes out one of these policies it will allow the payout on their mortgage to be whatever remains of the ninety thousand dollars should they pass away before the mortgage is paid out. This policy is very specifically an indemnity program aimed at a certain group that is felt to need more help. It is in place to make the difficulties they deal with at least a little easier.

But the veteran who decides to take out this life insurance policy must understand its limitations as well as its benefits. It provides no cash payout or dividends during the lifetime of this policy. It is taken out for the sole purpose of paying out the mortgage.

That means if the mortgage is paid out before the death of the holder of the policy there is no reason to maintain it any longer. Premiums for this type of protection are fairly reasonable. They are no more expensive than the usual policies of this nature. These premiums are determined by the veterans age, the amount owing and the term that is left to payout the loan. It is a very common method of formulating a premium.

Taking care of ones family after suffering from injuries that have left a person severely disabled becomes an even bigger responsibility for the familys money earner. This means planning on what happens should the disability be life threatening. No matter the reason a person decides to get life insurance they should understand that this kind of policy is of benefit to those who are left behind.
