How to protect your cosigner in case of death

4 Replies

Is the easiest way to protect a cosigner in case of your death a life insurance policy? Has anyone done this in the past? 

My sister is likely going to be co signing a 30y loan cash out refi for me and in the event I have some sort of accident and am no longer around, I don't want her on the hook for a mortgage on a property in which she is not on the deed. Any suggestions or pointing me in the proper direction would be greatly appreciated. 

Jeff, what company did you insure through, how much policy and who is the beneficiary of the property?

Basically what @Jeff Greenberg said. These are very common in the business world. Your insurance broker can help you get them.
