It's not for you, it's for them

Providing for your loved ones is so important. But what would happen if the worst happened to you? Life Insurance could financially protect your loved ones when they need it most. After all, life insurance is not for you. It’s for them.

How does Life Insurance work?

Our Life Insurance could pay out a cash sum if you die or are diagnosed with a terminal illness while covered by the policy (provided life expectancy is less than 12 months). The amount of cover you choose will stay fixed unless you make changes to your policy.

You choose the amount of cover you need and how long you need it for. You can take out life insurance under joint or single names and you can pay your premiums monthly or annually.

  • Premiums from only £5 a month depending on your individual circumstances
  • Your cash sum could help pay the mortgage or help with everyday living expenses
  • Peace of mind knowing life insurance can help financially protect your loved ones

We also offer Decreasing Life Insurance, designed to help protect a repayment mortgage so the amount of cover reduces roughly in line with the way a repayment mortgage decreases. Helping your loved ones to stay in the family home without worrying about the mortgage.

**UK's number one Life Insurance provider based on new individual Life Insurance sales in 2022, Term & Health Watch Report 2023, Swiss Re.

  • You choose how much cover you need and how long you need it for.
  • Premiums are guaranteed and will not change unless you make changes to the policy.

Please read the key documents before you apply:

Things you need to know

  • This is not a savings or investment product and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made.
  • If you stop paying premiums when due, your plan will be cancelled and you won't get anything back.
  • You won't be covered within the first year of the policy if you die as a result of suicide or intentional and serious self-injury, or an event where, in our reasonable opinion, you took your own life.
  • You won't be covered if your terminal illness does not meet our definition. See the Policy Booklet PDF(3.2MB) for more information.
  • If your life insurance is to cover your mortgage, your policy may not completely pay off your outstanding mortgage unless you make sure your amount of cover is adjusted to match any new mortgage arrangements. If you take out Decreasing Life Insurance you should also check that the interest rate on your mortgage does not become higher than the rate applied to the policy. The rate will be shown in your Personal Quote or the Policy Booklet.
