Life Insurance for mortgage loan

This life insurance for mortgage loan borrowers is a product designed by Ethniki General Insurance offered by National Bank of Greece to individuals-borrowers and/or guarantors of mortgage loans.

The said life insurance enables you to secure repayment of your loan and thus save your loved ones from having to pay off your mortgage loan in the event of your loss of life.

For further information see Details.


In the event of loss of life (borrower/guarantor) due to illness or accident during the term of the validity period of insurance coverage, Ethniki General Insurance S.A. undertakes the obligation to pay the insurance premium to National Bank of Greece. The amount paid to the Bank shall be equal to the outstanding principal of the loan and up to three (3) instalments due, as at the date of the insuree's death, depending on his percentage participation in the insurance.

 

Key features of the plan

  • Minimum age of the Insuree at the insurance inception date: 18 years
  • Maximum age of the Insuree at the insurance inception date: 65 years
  • Maximum age of Coverage: 70 years
  • Maximum insured Capital (€200.000).
  • The insurance product becomes available to you once you have been accepted for insurance, having first filled out the health questionnaire included in the Insurance Application.
  • The product applies only to permanent residents of Greece.
  • Each Insuree (borrower/guarantor) can opt for up to 100% coverage of the amount of the loan, provided that the total insurance coverage rate is at least 100%. E.g. In the case of a joint loan made to two borrowers, both borrowers can get 100% insurance coverage or 50% each. In order for the guarantor to get insured, at least one of the borrowers must be insured for at least half of the principal of the loan.
  • The premium is calculated on a monthly basis as a percentage of 0.343% on the outstanding (at any given time) principal of the loan, not including any overdue debts. E.g. for an outstanding loan principal of €10,000, the monthly insurance premium amounts to €3.43 for 100% coverage.

The amount of the premiums to be paid diminishes over the years, since it is calculated on the basis of the outstanding principal of the loan, which diminishes with the payment of the instalments.

 

Duration

The inception date of the insurance shall be the later of the following: the date of the loan activation, or the date of the Insurance Application - Certificate.

The insurance policy shall be terminated, either upon full repayment of the loan, or earlier, by the 70th birthday of the Insuree. Furthermore, the insurance policy will be interrupted if requested by you or if an insured risk occurs or in the event the premiums or the loan instalments are not paid normally as per the agreed schedule.
