Life Insurance (also known as life assurance or life cover or death cover) will pay out either a single lump sum or provide a regular income when you die, providing financial security for the loved ones you leave behind.
Even if you have life insurance cover in place, are you confident that the arrangements will offer sufficient protection for you, your family or even your business in the event of your death or if you became disabled? We can help bring peace of mind and ensure that money worries don’t add to your concerns during times of personal crisis.
Our specialist Protection Advisers at Stan Sherlock Advisers can review your personal circumstances and ensure you are adequately protected if the worst were to happen. We recommend regularly reviewing your life insurance policies to ensure you continue to have the right type and level of cover in place.
Our life insurance and income protection policies are written in trust to ensure swift, accurate and tax efficient payment if a claim arises.
The cost of your insurance premiums will depend on the level of cover you’d like to achieve, as well as personal factors such as your age, health and lifestyle at the time you take out the policy. There are different types of life insurance policy available so contact us to discuss the best life insurance cover for your needs.
Although no amount of money can replace a loved one, it can help those left behind to weather the financial storm left in your absence. For example, it could pay off your mortgage or provide an income to go towards regular household expenditure.
Your life insurance options may include:
Level term life insurance covers a specific sum which will be paid out in the event of your death. This cover, and your monthly payments, remain the same throughout the length of your policy, and your monthly payments also stay the same.
With a decreasing term life insurance policy, the amount of cover reduces each month, usually to cover the cost of a repayment mortgage, and annual interest rates apply. However, your monthly payments stay the same unless you make a change to the life insurance policy.
A whole of life insurance policy will guarantee to pay out a fixed amount should you die which can be reassuring for you and your loved ones. The premium costs are usually higher, however, so a whole of life policy may not be suitable for everyone.
There are specific life insurance policies available for the over 50s or couples who may benefit from a joint life insurance policy. Our expert protection advisers can also research the market and recommend specialist cover for those with existing illnesses or health conditions, such as diabetes.
