The loss of employment insurance must be underwritten at the beginning
This option must be subscribed initially at the same time. It can not be added later unless you subscribe separately from another insurance company than the one that insured.
Unemployment insurance home loan: waiting times & compensation
There is a waiting period, usually six months after subscription and/or a grace period, usually three months.
Compensation periods are in the vast majority of cases limited (eighteen months maximum). The amount of care varies depending on the institution and the choice of the borrower: 50% or 100% of the monthly payment.
Understand what will be your responsibility
When subscribing, be sure to understand your contract and what part of the term will remain your responsibility. Some contracts will compensate according to a fixed fee based on a scale upon accession, others will compensate based on the shortfall resulting from the difference between your employee income and your unemployment income.
