Your endowment

Everything you need to know, all in one place

Getting you ready for maturity

Have an endowment with us that’s approaching maturity? Here we’ll help you learn more about how the process works, getting in touch with us and keeping your money invested.

And if you originally took your endowment out with Friends Life or one of its previous companies, rest assured – this page also covers your policy.

Receiving your maturity pack

We’ll send you a maturity pack in the post a few weeks before your endowment’s maturity date. This pack will include clear instructions on how to get your money.

  • Your pack will also contain an estimate of how much money you’ll receive – we won’t know the final amount until the day your policy matures
  • If any personal information in the pack is incorrect or has changed (such as your name or address) you must contact us and let us know 
  • If you’ve got any questions about the process, your policy or options moving forward, take a look at our FAQs

Your options

Already have plans for your cash or looking to reinvest it straight away?


Take your money

Your maturity pack will tell you how you can receive your money – which may include sending us some documentation so we can check your identity. Once we have everything, your money will take 3-5 working days to appear in your account. Read our endowment FAQs to find out more.


Keep your existing policy

Want to keep your endowment as it is? You may be able to stay invested with your existing endowment and extend its maturity date. Check your maturity pack to see if your endowment offers this option – if it does, you’ll find instructions on what to do next.


Open a new investment

You can also open a new investment with us. Choose from our Stocks & Shares ISAInvestment Account or Guaranteed Bond.

The value of investments can go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invest.

Financial advice

If you need advice on what to do with the money from your endowment – or you need help planning your retirement – our financial advice support team can put you in touch with someone who can help.
