Frequently Asked Questions

What is life insurance?

Life insurance (also known as life cover and death cover) allows you to help protect your family in the event of your death. If the worst were to happen, your family or dependants will be paid a lump sum or a series of small payments.

Life insurance aims to give you added peace of mind that your family will receive some financial assistance if anything happens to you.

Reasons why people buy life insurance

Life insurance is not for everyone, though if your children, partner or other relatives depend on your income to cover the mortgage or other living expenses, then the answer is yes – you probably do want life insurance.

Life insurance can be a safety net for your family. If you were to die life insurance could help your family in a number of ways:

• Pay off existing debts whether it is a Mortgage, Credit Cards or a Loan.
• Help to cover final expenses such as funeral costs.
• Help to cover your children’s education.
• Help protect your family’s income and allow them to maintain their lifestyle.

What type of insurance should I get?

• Level term life cover: This is where the amount you pay and your future cover stay the same during a policy term unless any changes are made to the policy. This will pay a lump sum in the event that your death is during the specified policy term.

• Decreasing term life cover: This is a payment to pay the balance of your mortgage in the event of your death. It decreases with time as the balance of your mortgage decreases.

• Critical Illness cover: Critical illness cover will pay out the lump sum agreed if you have been diagnosed with a critical illness during the policy term. Critical illnesses are specified in the policy.

• Whole life cover: This will pay out a lump sum when you die, whenever that is. It's more expensive than term life cover for the same size of payout.

• Joint life cover: This is life insurance cover for yourself and your partner in one policy. This cover will insure two people at the same time on a ‘first death’ basis. The cover pays out if one of you passes away, after which the policy would end.

• Over 50s life cover: Designed for people aged 50-80 and paying out a fixed lump sum when you die to your loved ones to cover things like funeral expenses, outstanding debts or even as a gift to the people you love.

Different life insurance companies pay out different amounts depending on your policy. So you’ll need to look for the best life insurance UK companies are offering.

How much life insurance do I need?

The aim is to have enough cash to cover the lack of income if you’re gone. A good rule of thumb is getting life insurance coverage that's 10 times your income, but it depends on your individual financial circumstances.

Some important considerations include any outstanding debts (e.g. mortgage, credit cards, loans), any dependants (e.g. childcare costs, education), a partner who rely on your income to maintain lifestyle, final expenses (e.g. funeral expenses) and – quite simply – how much you can afford in monthly life insurance premiums.

Now, the cost of life insurance is typically not substantial - it’s usually a small monthly fee - but because most policies last so many years, those small amounts can build up over time. Premiums vary from insurer to insurer so it's important to shop around to save money.

When should I think about getting life insurance?

When it comes to timing, the younger you are when you buy life insurance, the cheaper it is. This is because at a younger age, you'll qualify for lower premiums. However, for many of us, the decision to take out life insurance is triggered by a major life event - such as having a baby or moving house – it can be a good idea to buy life insurance sooner rather than later.

Regardless of your age, if you want to help provide for your family financially if you die, you should consider buying life insurance - especially true if you have loans, mortgages and financial dependents.

Can everything be done online?

The answer is no and there are a few reasons you may need to speak to someone on the phone.

Firstly, the size of your life insurance pot can regularly be half a million quid or more and thus life insurance companies (and you) will want to make sure you have a complete record of the conversation and all the details regarding your policy.

And secondly, experienced advisors will help you get the cheapest price for your circumstances - as insurance companies provide advisors (or brokers) with the lower rates because they are professionally trained to accurately assess risk and to help you choose a policy that adequately insures you. Furthermore, being independent from any one insurance provider means you’ll be able to quickly compare multiple UK’s leading quotes and select the plan that’s cheapest and best for your circumstances. The exact same life insurance policy can vary in price by up to 50% between different insurers. By comparing quotes, you can save.

Will my family have to pay tax on my life insurance?

The standard inheritance tax rate is 40% - though generally speaking, when the beneficiary of a life insurance policy receives the death benefit, this money is not counted as taxable income, and the beneficiary does not have to pay taxes on it. Furthermore, when you write a life insurance policy in trust, because the payout does not go to your legal estate, its value will not count towards the inheritance tax threshold and so the entire sum will go to the beneficiaries.
