How much life insurance do I need?

To help you decide how much life insurance you need, you could consider the following:

  • How much would your family need to maintain their current lifestyles?
  • If you want to specifically protect a mortgage, think about your mortgage amount
  • If you have children, how much would they need to cover childcare costs or university fees

Please remember that life insurance is not a savings or investment product and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made.

Life insurance explained

Life insurance can be a great way to help protect your family financially, should the worst happen. It is designed to pay out a cash sum if you die during the length of the policy, and can be used to help pay the mortgage or help protect the family's lifestyle and everyday living expenses. Our life insurance calculator helps you assess what amount of cover would suit you.
