Extra hours to pay the mortgage?

15 December 2023

In the face of rising bills, most advice to consumers tends to be focused on cutting costs and reducing outgoings. A new study (1) has shown that a growing number of homeowners are thinking about the opposite end of the scale: boosting their income.

Financial resilience

Some three in 10 homeowners said that they are picking up extra work to boost their savings ahead of their mortgage repayments increasing. Putting in more hours might not be possible for everyone but those with the option are increasingly making use of overtime or seeking new employment opportunities in order to create a financial buffer.

Protection at the forefront

Whether or not working more is an option, protection remains a crucial safety net. Even for those doing extra hours, the peace of mind that protection provides means that you and your loved ones will not face the worst consequences should you be unable to work.
