    CHICAGO, IL, April 29, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- If there was ever an equation for an anxiety attack, it would be today's sour economy mixed with the current job market. For homeowners, nothing gets the sweat on their foreheads to build like being uncertain about whether they'll still be employed next month.

However, there may be some salvation for homeowners who fear they may not be able to make the next mortgage payment: Job Loss Mortgage Insurance.

Today, the unemployment numbers in America are topping off at 12.5 million people, the highest number in over 25 years, according to the Labor Department. And the numbers are steadily climbing.

Furthermore, more than 5 million Americans with a mortgage were at least one month late on their mortgage payment or in foreclosure at the end of 2008, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association.

In such cases, job-loss insurance coverage added to your homeowners insurance policy may be the ideal course of action. However, there are two sides to every story, so it is in your best interest to learn the pros and cons of job-loss insurance before purchasing it.
