Different types of life insurance cover

We have a dedicated section on the Life Insurance Cover website detailing the various types of life insurance here. But as a brief overview, here are some of the most common:

Term life insurance – probably the most popular and cost-effective. Term life insurance provides coverage for a fixed amount of time, for example, the length of a mortgage. It is essential to take into consideration the expiry date, at which time the life insurance ceases. If the event of no claim made, it is important to re-think the options for the future.

When the mortgage is paid, do I still need life insurance?

The mortgage might not be a factor as it is now paid off. But expensive bills such as funeral costs can worry many people. In this respect, an over 50s life insurance policy might be an attractive option.

What if we both work to pay the bills?

If you and your partner contribute equally to the household finances, or if one partner is a stay at home parent, then a joint insurance policy is an attractive solution, as extra costs such as child care might suddenly be a consideration if one partner dies.

In the event of a claim, a joint policy ends naturally, and the surviving partner will need to think about a new life insurance policy to protect any dependants. 

Joint policies work well for many couples, as it is a generally cheaper solution than two individual plans.  If a couple split at any time, then the life insurance policy can continue if mutually agreed. Or may need re-establishing or the taking over of one by the other. Find out more about joint life insurance.

Whole of life insurance – The premiums fall due every month for the whole of your life, until you die (or reach maximum age depending on the type of whole of life policy.) The benefit is fixed, and this sum remains a guaranteed payout when you die (subject to terms and conditions).

Pros and cons of a whole of life insurance policy

Monthly premiums for a whole of life option are often more expensive and less attractive as general fixed term life insurance. People with large estates and a looming inheritance tax bill find whole of life insurance attractive. Important factors to take into consideration include ensuring the payout is sufficient in line with inflation, taking into account retirement and checking the small print for any exclusions. We can advise you on a range of whole of life insurance policies, the different types on offer and the benefits of this type of insurance policy.

What a life insurance policy needs to protect

Working out what you would like to protect, some households use excel or a good old fashioned pen and paper time. Review your monthly outgoings, take everything into account including every income and outgoing. Also include any saving plans, car loans, debts and of course, the crucial living expenses such as a mortgage, utilities and everyday living costs. People often forget that growing children have expensive tastes/hobbies/next new thing. A death of a parent might need a tightening of belts in times of financial difficulties. Still, with sufficient life insurance, a surviving parent can ensure the children never go without.
