What is Life Insurance?

Life insurance is a way to ensure your family are taken care of in the event of your death.

It works by paying a set sum of money to the people you choose when you die. You might also hear life insurance called life cover or life assurance, but whatever the name, the function is the same.

How does it work?

In its simplest form, life insurance pays out a fixed sum to your family or chosen persons in the event of your death, as long as it is within the specified term of the policy.

You choose how long this term is and how much is to be paid out when you die. Each of these decisions will have an effect on the premium you pay, which is usually paid in monthly instalments over the term of the policy which can be from 10 years to sixty years.

Types of Policies

Level Term: Level term insurance is the most common type of insurance and ensures that you’re covered for a fixed amount for the length of your policy.

Decreasing Term: Decreasing term life insurance is designed to pay off a repayment mortgage when the policyholder dies. It decreases in value over time as the mortgage repayments lower. The payout can go directly to the mortgage provider or to your beneficiaries.

Whole of Life: Whole of life is cover for the rest of your life, until you die. 

Over 50s: Over 50s life cover is specifically for people aged over 50 and is also a whole of life policy. 

Policy in trust (add-on): Putting something ‘in trust’ basically means giving it to someone responsible to look after until such time as the real beneficiary should have it. It’s a bit like giving your house to your children, but letting your spouse look after it until the children reach the required age.
