Advice from our life insurance experts

It’s important you understand completely the life insurance policy you are considering before joining. We can help explain understand what the policy includes and excludes to ensure it meets your requirements.

Mortgage protection cover

Our life insurance can maintain your mortgage payments if you cannot work due to injury or illness. Knowing your biggest monthly bill is covered can help ease the financial pressure and stress of illness.

Serious illness cover

Unlike typical critical illness cover, we advise on cover that pays out for less severe conditions as well as critical ones. If you need to claim, you’ll receive a percentage of your cover depending on how severe your condition. If a condition gets caught early on, you’ll receive a portion to alleviate the stress, but will also have the rest of your cover should you need to claim again.

Comprehensive, flexible and affordable benefits

Benefit from our buying power as part of the largest independent intermediary. We can help you find cover that gives you the flexibility to choose the right hospitals, benefit limits and treatment options. Whether you are looking to keep costs low or extend your benefits for full peace of mind, our advisers can help.

Life Insurance FAQs

Why should I buy life insurance?

It depends on where you are in life. However, for many people, life insurance is an excellent way to protect the things that mean the most to you – such as making sure your family’s financial future is more secure if something unexpected happens to you.

Can my children be covered too?

Yes, you can choose a cover amount of between £10,000 and £100,000 for your children. If your child is diagnosed with one of the illnesses we cover, you will receive a cash lump sum. Children are added automatically when you take out serious illness cover for yourself.

How do you work out the price of my life insurance?

Your premiums are based on a range of factors, such as your age, height and weight; your health; whether you’re employed in a high-risk occupation; and whether you smoke.

Can I change my policy later?

Yes. If your circumstances change you can increase your life insurance cover or buy extra policies. You can also choose to add indexation to your plan at no extra cost. Indexation protects you against rises in the cost of living, making sure you always keep the level of cover you need and increasing your cover each year without the need to go back through our application process. You can also choose to opt out of any future increases.
