Premiums are affordable and guaranteed

Helping cover your repayment mortgage or loan could cost less than you think. Premiums start from £5 a month and are set at the start of the plan to take into account the decreasing cover. The actual cost of the plan depends on your personal circumstances, so you only pay for the cover that you need and premiums are guaranteed to stay the same for the duration of the plan.

Your choice of cover

You decide how much life cover you want — the maximum amount available will depend on your own personal circumstances. You also choose how long you want the cover to last. Many people choose to have their cover for a period that coincides with when they expect their mortgage or loan to be paid off.

Cover that includes an extra benefit

With Aviva you get Terminal Illness Benefit included in your cover, please note that is not the same as Critical Illness Cover, which pays out a lump sum if you are diagnosed with a specified Critical Illness.

Terminal Illness Benefit means we pay the sum insured if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness within the plan term and are not expected to live more than 12 months. If we pay out after a terminal illness claim, your plan will end.

Critical illness cover is not available with Decreasing Life Insurance; however you can choose to take out an alternative plan offered by Aviva, which combines life cover with critical illness cover.

Seems like a good policy

I liked being able to choose the amount to pay every month. The one thing that I would have liked at the application stage would have been to choose to put the payout into trust to my husband.

On-line insurance

needed to take out some short term life insurance. Had succesfully used Aviva before so were a natural choice for the policy I need. Application easy to complete with instant quote. Completing the process was very simple and stress free. Good value for money.
