    Protection shortfall (amount and years)
    I've neglected our mortgage protection. We extended the term of our mortgage a few years ago and we've recently borrowed more too for an extension. So we have level term protection of £388k to 2031 but the mortgage is £456k to 2038.


    Should we take out a policy just for the extra borrowing for now (and take out a further policy in 2031) or should we take out a new policy for £456 to 2038?


    I hope this isn't too much of "How long is a piece of string?". I will obviously do my research now but wondered if there was an obvious answer...

    What if you become uninsurable by 2031 (or 38)? Even if not uninsurable, your health could be an issue and result in higher premiums.

    If you are in good health now, then you should change it now.
