About life insurance


Advice from our life insurance experts

It’s so important that you fully understand the ins and outs of your life insurance policy, and our advisers will get you up to speed to ensure the policy meets your requirements before before taking out a policy.


Mortgage protection cover

Mortgage protection cover 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 also advise on cover that pays out for less serious conditions. If you need to claim from your insurance policy, you’ll receive a percentage of the cover depending on the severity of your medical problem. If the condition is caught early, you’ll receive a portion of the cover to help with stress, but the rest of the cover will still be there 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 insurance that suits your needs. Whether you are looking to keep costs low or extend your benefits for full peace of mind, our advisers can help.

When you need to make a claim, we'll guide you through the process and get your claim settled as quickly as possible.

  • Find your insurance documents and make sure you have all your information at hand, including your policy number.
  • Call the claims team on the number in your policy documents and explain exactly what happened.

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 increases 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.
