Life and Protection Insurance

What Is Critical Illness Cover?


Although Critical Illness cover is sold by life assurers, there is a big difference when compared with life insurance - you don't have to die to benefit from the Critical Illness insurance policy. This type of cover is designed to pay out a lump sum in the event of you suffering from certain types of critical illness or if you have to undergo certain types of surgery as specified in the policy terms and conditions.


What is Income Protection Insurance? 


Income Protection Insurance is designed to pay you a regular monthly income if you are incapacitated and unable to work due to illness or injury.  


What is Level Term Assurance? 


It's term assurance, because you only get a payout within the set 'term' e.g. 15years. Its level, because the payout you get is fixed from the start of the term until the end. Level term assurance therefore guarantees a known lump sum payout upon death within a fixed time e.g. £160,000 if you die within the next 15 years.


What Is Mortgage Life Assurance? 


Mortgage Life Assurance is designed to pay off the remaining mortgage debt on repayment mortgages if you die within a set period. It ensures your dependants need not worry about repaying the mortgage if you die.


What Is Whole of Life Assurance? 


Whole of Life Assurance is designed to pay out in the event of death, whenever it occurs. The premium you pay can include an investment element which helps to pay for the cost of cover over time. The cost of cover can be more expensive than term assurance, but there is usually a surrender value too.
