Endowment Maturity Option

Now that your endowment is coming up to maturity, it's time to decide what to do with your money. You may already have it earmarked for something - paying off your mortgage for example - but if you haven't, as the UK's largest insurer, we have options for you to chose from.

Long term investments

If you don't need the money right now, you could consider one of the following options.

Investment bond

Our investment bond lets you invest in a range of funds to suit your investment aims and attitude to risk.


By putting your money into your pension plan, you could give your retirement an added boost when the time comes.

Stocks and Shares ISA

The Aviva Investors Investment ISA is our stocks and shares ISA. It’s an easy way to invest in stocks and shares without paying income tax or capital gains tax on any money you receive from them.

Collective Investments

If you’ve used up all your ISA allowance and want to invest more, you can invest directly in our collective investment funds.

Taking your money

You may already know exactly what you want to do with your money. If you do, we'll explain what you need to do to get it.

Continue to protect your loved ones

When your endowment ends, the life cover it gives you ends too. So you may need to think about protecting your loved ones.

Related frequently asked questions

Will I receive the money when my policy matures?

Generally, we pay you as the original policyholder, except when:

  • the policy is assigned to another person or company, in which case we will pay the money to them
  • the policy is held under trust, in which case we will pay the trustees
  • you have asked us to pay the money to a solicitor where they are accepting money or acting on behalf of the policyholder. If it's a joint policy and the policy holders are no longer together then a percentage to each may be paid.
When will you pay out the money?

We will pay out your maturity money when your policy matures, assuming we have received all the documentation and proof of identity we have asked to see. In some instances, it may take three to five working days for a direct credit payment to your bank account to clear.

If your policy is held under trust, you should contact the trustees and ask them to sign the declaration in section 3 of the payment release form.
