ING Outstanding Balance Insurance Mortgage Loan

A life insurance developed by NN Insurance Belgium SA/NV

Your loved ones are the most important thing. But what if all of a sudden you are no longer here and you still have a mortgage loan to pay off? With ING Outstanding Balance Insurance Mortgage Loan, you can avoid your loved ones having to pay off all or part of your mortgage loan.

  • For your family

    Your partner or other loved ones will not remain in debt after your death because of the ING Mortgage Loan (if you opt for 100% coverage). If you opt for 50% coverage, only half of your ING Mortgage Loan will be repaid.

  • Modifiable

    For example, if you change your ING Mortgage Loan in the event of a partial early repayment, we will automatically adjust your ING Outstanding Balance Insurance Mortgage Loan.

  • Tax deductible

    The premiums are tax deductible under certain conditions. See "tax matters" for more information.

A Life insurance, developed by NN Insurance Belgium SA/nv and subject to Belgian law, linked to your mortgage loan. For complete security, we recommend coverage for each borrower for 100% of the amount of your mortgage loan. In the event of your death, we will then repay the balance of your loan in full. Your heirs (e.g. your partner or your children) therefore do not have to continue paying off your mortgage loan (if you opt for 100% coverage) or sell the family home.

  • Suicide in the first year:
    • of the contract;
    • after restarting the contract;
    • after increasing the death capital (the exclusion only applies to the increased portion of the death capital).
  • If you, as the insured person, die during a parachute jump, hang gliding or paragliding or while piloting an aircraft, you are not insured.
  • If you, as the insured person, die during active participation in riots, disturbances or violence, you are not insured.
  • All natural persons aged 18 or over;
  • resident in Belgium or the Netherlands or moving to Belgium or the Netherlands within 6 months of the start date;
  • and taking out an ING Mortgage Loan.

Persons with an increased health risk can benefit from a contribution to the premium of their ING Outstanding Balance Insurance Mortgage Loan via a compensation fund. This is possible if the additional premium is more than 125% higher than the basic premium due to an increased health risk. Consult your insurer, your bank or your intermediary for more information.

You choose according to your needs:

  • the insured percentage of your mortgage loan;
  • and the frequency of payment (single premium, annual or monthly premium);
  • You choose the beneficiary(ies) of your ING Outstanding Balance Insurance Mortgage Loan. If you want to benefit from a tax advantage on your premiums, the choice of beneficiary(ies) is limited by law.
  • Payment methods: you can opt for a one-off premium (you pay a one-off premium and are insured for the full term of your contract) or recurring premiums (you pay a premium at regular intervals for the entire duration of the mortgage loan. These premiums vary from year to year). The premiums include taxes and costs. If you are a natural person and your tax residence is in Belgium, you owe 2% tax on insurance premiums. However, the tax for insurances linked to a mortgage loan is 1.1%.
    • If you pay your premiums monthly, a fractioning fee of 4% will be charged. You can avoid this cost by paying a one-off or annual premium.
  • Calculation of the premium: The premiums are determined after evaluation of the risk and confirmed in the contract. The rate is determined on the basis of various criteria (see segmentation policy).
  • Tariff: the tariff is valid for 3 years from the start date of the contract, subject to statutory amendments.
  • Duration: the duration of your contract corresponds to the duration of the covered credit.
  • End of your contract:
    • If you are still living: your contract ends automatically when your credit has been paid off in full.
    • In the event of your death: the insured percentage of the debt balance of your mortgage loan will be repaid.

A number of criteria influence the insurer’s decision on whether or not to insure a risk and at what rate. These are Acceptance Criteria (AC), Pricing Criteria (PC) and Extended Guarantee Criteria (GC). We use these segmentation criteria to find a balance between the premium you pay and the loss or damage we anticipate. These criteria are objective criteria that can influence the probability or extent of loss or damage.

Please find below further explanation of the criteria we apply.

  • The capital insured (AC, PC): the capital insured has an impact on the amount of the premium, as it is directly linked to the risk to be insured.
  • The term of the policy (AC, PC): the term of the policy may have an impact on the amount insured, and may therefore influence the amount of the premium.
  • The financial acceptance (AC): if the total amount of capital insured with NN Insurance Belgium SA/NV exceeds 1 million euros, the insurer will assess your financial situation.
  • The state of your health (AC, PC, GC): the insurer, NN Insurance Belgium SA/NV, will make enquiries regarding your health status based on a questionnaire or medical examination. If, at the time of taking out your policy, you are aware of any health problems which may affect your risk of premature death, the insurer will take these into account. If the questionnaire or medical exam does not give us a sufficiently clear picture of your health, NN Insurance Belgium SA/NV may also ask you to answer additional questions, or to provide us with further information.
  • Your age (AC, PC): your age is an important factor when you take out life insurance, because, statistically, the probability of death increases with age.
  • Smoker/non-smoker (PC): because smoking seriously damages your health and increases the risk of mortality, the insurer needs to know if you smoke.
  • Profession and sport(s) (AC, PC, GC): your profession and any sport(s) you participate in can be considered to be more or less dangerous and consequently, have an influence on your risk of death and your life expectancy.
  • The fact that you travel for long periods abroad (AC, PC, GC): depending on the duration and destination, spending time in a foreign country can have an influence on the state of your health, your risk of death and your life expectancy.
