How Free Parent Life cover helps
Everyone’s circumstances are different, but most people start to think about Life Insurance to help protect their partner or family financially.
Added protection for families
As a new mum, Alice was over the moon with her new son, Jacob. She didn’t have much extra money to spend on life insurance with so much baby stuff to buy. But our Free Parent Life Cover meant she could get £15,000 of insurance for 12 months, absolutely free. That's one less thing to worry about 1.
When Harry and Jane logged in to MyAviva to renew their home insurance, they realised they were eligible for free parent life cover. Their children ranged from 18 months to 7 years old, but all they needed to do was apply online and both mum and dad would get a free £15,000 of cover for a year for each child under 4 years old 1.
