Lifelong protection for over 50s
Choose what you’d like to pay each month – between £5 and £100 – and our Over 50s Life Insurance guarantees you’ll be able to leave money to your loved ones if something happens to you.
The price will never increase
Your premiums will never go up – so you don’t need to worry about any price hikes
Cover lasts for life – and once you turn 90 or you’ve had cover for 30 years, you no longer pay a penny
Take out as many plans as you like (providing your premiums don’t exceed £100 a month)
There are no health checks to worry about and you're guaranteed to be accepted as long as you're a UK resident aged 50 to 80. If you'd like to take out cover, call us on 0800 046 2778 1 or apply online.
What our Over 50s plan offers
Choose the life cover you need based on what you want to pay each month. Your premiums are fixed and there's no medical to apply. Simple.
- Guaranteed acceptance
If you’re a UK resident aged between 50 and 80, you’ll be guaranteed our cover – simple
- Same price for life
Choose how much you'll pay each month and we won’t ever change the price – so you’ll never have to worry about increasing premiums
- Lifetime cover
Once you’ve paid for 30 years or until the plan anniversary after your 90th birthday, you won’t pay any more premiums
- Cash lump sum guaranteed
We’ll pay out the full sum if you pass away after 1 year or you die as a result of an accident within the first year. If you pass away for another reason in the first year, we'll pay back the total amount of any premiums you paid
- Multiple plans
Take out more than 1 plan (as long as the total premiums don't exceed £100)
What's not covered
There are a few things this plan doesn’t offer that you need to be aware of:
- No cash-in value at any time
You can’t opt to take money out of the policy – it only pays out when you pass away. If your payments stop, cover will end 30 days after your last premium was due and you’ll get nothing back
- Insure more than 1 person on your policy
This policy is for 1 person only so you can’t opt for joint cover
- Your family could get back less than you paid in
Depending on how long you live, the amount you pay each month could exceed the amount we'll pay out
- Inflation will reduce the value of the payout
Cover amount doesn’t increase with inflation, so the amount may not hold the same value in the future
- If you pass away in the first year
We only pay the full amount in the first 12 months if you pass away as a result of an accident. If you pass away from any other cause, we'll pay back the amount of the premiums you’ve paid

How our Over 50s plan works
Lifelong cover with fixed premiums that guarantees a set amount of money for your family once you pass away.
How much does cover cost?
Prices start from £5 per month, but you can choose to pay up to £100 per month depending on the amount of cover you need.
Your premiums are fixed for life, so you never have to worry about them increasing.
Once you’ve had your policy for 30 years, or from the plan anniversary after your 90th birthday (whichever comes first), you’ll no longer pay a penny but your cover will continue.
You can have more than one policy, as long as the total premiums don't exceed £100 a month.
How much cover do I need?
Think about the amount of money your family will need once you pass away - whether that's money to help contribute towards funeral expenses, or to leave as a gift to your loved ones.
The amount of cover available will also depend on what age you are when you sign up.
And remember the value of any amount paid out may be worth less in the future due to inflation.
Who benefits from a claim?
To help guarantee who benefits from your life insurance, you can nominate a beneficiary in a will or place your policy in a Trust.
A Trust allows you to specify who receives the money, and lets you choose the trustees that will manage any claims or payouts after you’ve passed away.
While you can do the same with a will, any money paid out will be considered part of your overall estate – so could be subject to Inheritance Tax and take longer to reach your loved ones 2.

How our life insurance helps
Everyone’s circumstances are different, but most people start to think about life insurance to help protect their partner or family financially.
At 76 years old, Julia found some life insurance policies pretty pricey. With our over 50s plan, she found options from as little as £5 a month, or up to £10,619 of cover. She was also guaranteed to be accepted without any medical checks 3.
Bob had life insurance. He also had a critical illness policy. But when he hit 50, he wanted more. He took out 2 of our Over 50s Life insurance policies – for £50 a month each – and put them in trusts for his 2 grandchildren. That guaranteed both of them a payment that they could put towards their future 3.
