How it works

Our Guaranteed Lifelong Protection plan guarantees life cover to UK residents aged 50 to 80 years inclusive. It’s a life insurance plan that will pay a specific amount of money to your loved ones when you die.

Amount of cover

The amount of cover you can get depends on your age and the premiums you pay. There’s no medical, and we won’t ask any questions about your lifestyle. You can get a quote now.

How much does it cost

You can take out a plan for between £7 and £50 per month, which will need to be paid by Direct Debit. You will pay premiums for a maximum of 30 years, or until the policy anniversary after your 90th birthday, whichever happens first.

You can have more than one plan, but from 25 January 2010 the maximum monthly payment for all plans cannot be more than £100. Plans issued before 25 January 2010 are not taken into account when applying this limit.

The guaranteed cash payout

Unlike some similar plans, ours will pay out when you have been making payments for just 12 months. And, if you die after 12 months due to an accident we will pay double the sum insured.

If you die within the first 12 months we will pay an amount equal to the premiums that have been paid unless death was caused by an accident, in which case we would pay the full sum insured.

The plan has no cash in value, so if you stop paying your premiums before the end of the payment term, your life cover will end 30 days after the date the last premium was due and you’ll get nothing back.

Depending on your circumstances, the cash sum paid out could be less than the total amount you’ve paid in premiums. The value of the lump sum will be reduced by inflation.

Making a claim

Everything will be taken care of by our dedicated claims team, who’ll be on hand to help every claim go as smoothly as possible at what could be a very difficult time. Easy to contact, on 0800 015 1142.
