Ensure life goes on, with Life Insurance

During these uncertain times, there are things you can do to help financially protect your loved one’s future, and we’re here to help.

Think of life insurance like a safety net. It could pay out a cash sum if you were to pass away while covered by the policy or if you were diagnosed with a terminal illness provided life expectancy is less than 12 months.

Life insurance is there to ensure the life you’ve built together goes on. With the rising costs of living and less disposable income for many, life insurance could be more important then ever. From helping with the ever-increasing monthly bills, to providing the things that matter most. Life Insurance helps ensure life goes on even after you’re gone.

Here's some great reasons to take out cover with us:

  • Fixed monthly premiums from £5, depending on your circumstances, unless you make changes to the policy - no surprises!
  • No-one covers more families in the UK than us** (based on new life insurance sales).
  • We paid £509 million in life claims in 2022, helping over 12,500 people and their families.
  • Get a quote online in 2 minutes, you could be covered in just 20.
  • Wellbeing Support. We've partnered with RedArc Assured Limited to bring you access to our new Wellbeing Support Service. Their registered nurses provide a wide range of phone-based wellbeing services, supporting your wellbeing and mental health. Find out more.
  • Care Concierge Free access to our team of Care Experts, this confidential and impartial telephone advisory service can help you or loved ones understand and find later life care. Find out more.

Life Insurance cover details

What's covered?

  • You'll be covered if you die or if you're diagnosed with a terminal illness (with a life expectancy of less than 12 months) within the length of the policy.
  • 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.
  • Additional benefits are included at no extra cost, such as Free Life Cover and Accidental Death Benefit. Terms and conditions apply.
  • You have the option to add Critical Illness Cover at an extra cost when you take out your life insurance 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.
