Frequently Asked Questions

What is life insurance?

Life insurance (also known as life cover and death cover) allows you to protect your family in the event of your death. If the worst were to happen, your family or dependants will be paid a lump sum or a series of small payments.

Life insurance gives you the peace of mind that your family will be looked after if anything happened to you.

Reasons why people buy life insurance

Life insurance is not for everyone, though if your children, partner or other relatives depend on your income to cover the mortgage or other living expenses, then the answer is yes – you probably do want life insurance.

Life insurance is a safety net for your family. If you were to die life insurance could help your family in a number of ways:

• Pay off existing debts whether it is a Mortgage, Credit Cards or a Loan.
• Help to cover final expenses such as funeral costs and medical bills.
• Help to cover your children’s education.
• Protect your family’s income and allow them to maintain their lifestyle.

What type of insurance should I get?

- Level Cover: This will pay your family a lump sum in the event of your death.

- Decreasing cover: This is a payment to pay the balance of your mortgage in the event of your death. It decreases with time as the balance of your mortgage decreases.

- Critical Illness: Critical illness cover will pay out the lump sum agreed if you have been diagnosed with a critical illness during the policy term. Critical illnesses are specified in the policy documentation but usually include heart attacks, cancer and strokes.

Different life insurance companies pay out different amounts depending on your policy. So you’ll need to look for the best life insurance UK companies are offering.

How much life insurance do I need?

The aim is to have enough cash to cover the lack of income if you’re gone. A good rule of thumb is getting life insurance coverage that's 10 times your income, but it depends on your individual financial circumstances.

Some important considerations include any outstanding debts (e.g. mortgage, credit cards, loans), any dependants (e.g. childcare costs, education), a partner who reply on your income to maintain lifestyle, final expenses (e.g. funeral expenses and medical bills) and – quite simply – how much you can afford in monthly life insurance premiums.

Now, the cost of life insurance is not substantial - it’s usually a small monthly fee that’s barely noticeable - but because most policies last so many years, those small amounts can build up over time. Premiums vary from insurer to insurer so it's important to shop around to save money.

When should I think about getting life insurance?

The optimal age for purchasing life insurance is technically right after birth. Life insurance is age banded, which means that policies become more expensive the older you are. However, for many of us, the decision to take out life insurance is triggered by a major life event - such as having a baby or moving house – it can be a good idea to buy life insurance sooner rather than later.

Regardless of your age, if you want to provide for your family financially if you die, you need to buy life insurance - especially true if you have loans, mortgages and financial dependents.

Can everything be done online?

The answer is no and there are a few reasons you need to speak to someone on the phone.

Firstly, the size of your life insurance pot can regularly be half a million quid or more and thus life insurance companies (and you) will want to make sure you have a complete record of the conversation and all the details regarding your policy. And secondly, experienced advisors will help you get the cheapest price for your circumstances - as insurance companies provide advisors (or brokers) with the lower rates because they are professionally trained to accurately assess risk and to help you choose a policy that adequately insures you. Furthermore, being independent from any one insurance provider means you’ll be able to quickly compare multiple UK’s leading quotes and select the plan that’s cheapest and best for your circumstances. The exact same life insurance policy can vary in price by up to 50% between different insurers. By comparing quotes, you can save.

Will my family have to pay tax on my life insurance?

The standard inheritance tax rate is 40% - though generally speaking, when the beneficiary of a life insurance policy receives the death benefit, this money is not counted as taxable income, and the beneficiary does not have to pay taxes on it. Furthermore, when you write a life insurance policy in trust, because the payout does not go to your legal estate, its value will not count towards the inheritance tax threshold and so the entire sum will go to the beneficiaries.
