Life Insurance Comparison
Here are some essential tips to remember when choosing your own life insurance cover:
Make sure you choose an approriate payout value based on your own circumstances, this includes any liabilities you would leave behind such as a mortgage, the cost of living of any dependants plus perhaps an emergency lump sum for your loved ones
Decide how long to have cover for, some customers only want cover to exist whilst children remain dependant, others will link this in with the time remaining on the mortgage.
Make sure you understand the type of payout you are choosing – some will offer a flat rate, others will decrease in line with the policy duration.
Do you have everyone covered? consider joint life insurance as this could be cheaper that two separate policies.
Be aware of any policy exclusion – are these the best underwriting terms available on the market? different insurers have different terms.
Budget vs Comprehensive
Cheap life insurance is not always the best option, make sure you understand the limitations or terms of the cover.
Be honest and clear with your answers. Any non-disclosure could result in a policy being completely void – You wont be around to argue with the insurer so get everything set up right from the start.
Is your current policy competitive? are you looking for additional cover? If so, book an appointment with one of our Independant advisers to talk through your best options.
Why do i need Life Insurance?
If you have dependants – such as school age children, a partner who relies on your income or a family living in a house with a mortgage that you pay – a life insurance policy can provide for them if you die.
Types of Life Insurance
There are various different types of life insurance. The most common is level term insurance, which pays out a fixed amount if you die within the policy term. You can also buy decreasing term insurance, where the pay-out gets gradually smaller.
Decreasing term insurance is often linked to a repayment mortgage as the amount you owe the lender also reduces over time.
Family income benefit pays out an agreed monthly income (from the date of the claim to the end of the policy term) instead of a lump sum.
Whole-of-life cover is usually the most expensive as there is no actual finite term. In other words, the policy lasts as long as you do, so is guaranteed to pay out.
Cheap life insurance may not give you a large enough payout to cover the biggest overheads such as a mortgage balance.
How much does Life Insurance Cost?
When buying life insurance, you need to consider not just how much cover you need, but under what circumstances you want it to pay out. Also, you need to think about whether you want money paid as a lump sum or gradually.
Calculating how much cover you need is difficult. You’ll want to repay the mortgage, but what about school or university fees?
Get started young
As a general rule, the younger you are when you take out the cover, the cheaper it will be. A 20 year old, with no pre-existing medical issues should pay roughly £5-£10 per month for a payout of around £100k, if you double the payout, so will the monthly premium. If you want cheap life insurance, it’s best to start cover as yound as possible when you pose the lowest risk to an insurer.
Pre-existing medical history
If you are older when starting cover, the risk associated will increase significantly, what’s more any existing medical issues may face exclusions or policy price increases – best to get advice from a trained adviser who can find you the best deal and underwriting terms. Often the cheapest policy is not the best. It would also be worth checking payout rates for each Insurer.
Major factors in all health related insurance products are weight, lifestyle, smoking, exersise, alcohol consumption and pre-existing medical history.
Life insurance needs to be set up right, you wont be there to argue a claim so it’s essential to get proper advice now to make sure you have the cover you expect. If you already have life insurance, there is no reason not to get a new quote comparison – we may be able to reduce your premiums, increase your benifits or even remove medical exclusions.
