Job Loss Insurance: How does it work?

Before granting you a home loan, the bank requires you to take out loan insurance to cover the risks of death, disability and incapacity. The coverloss of employment insurance is an optional insurance that may also be offered to you when you take out a home loan. 

The conditions 

This coveris rarely taken out when you take out loan insurance, as it is often expensive and not required by the bank. It covers the payment of part of your monthly instalments in the event of involuntary redundancy. However, the right to this insurance is only available under certain conditions. Indeed, it can only be applied in the case of a redundancy entitling you to Pôle Emploi benefits. In the event of dismissal for gross misconduct, resignation, partial unemployment or contractual termination, job loss insurance will be of no use.

It is also important to check the age limit, as most insurers will require the policyholder to be under 50 years of age (some policies can go up to age 65).

The waiting period

In addition, the loan will not be taken over immediately. In the event of job loss, it is necessary to wait a period of 3 to 6 months before starting to receive compensation. Unemployment insurance contracts also provide for a waiting period which generally varies from 6 to 18 months, during which time the insurer will not pay any compensation even if the insured person is made redundant.
