Life insurance estimator
What is the life insurance estimator?
It's a really quick way to get an idea of how much life insurance might cost you without filling in any forms.
How accurate is the price given?
The estimator gives a general idea of price but makes various assumptions so should only be used as an initial guide and your actual cost may vary.
Can I use it for joint life estimates?
No, the estimator only gives single life prices but additional lives can be added in the full quote journey.
How do I find out more about life insurance?
