We are often quick to insure our homes, cars and valuables, but we often overlook our most important asset – ourselves.
Should the worst happen to you or your partner how would the family cope? Many base their life cover needs simply on the amount of their outstanding debt but as any monthly budget chart usually shows, the majority of one’s income tends not to be spent on servicing loans but rather on the regular family living costs such as the food bills, car expenses, school fees and electricity and water bills. Clearly, in the event of death, these costs will remain for your family and should your children be young, it may be difficult for the surviving partner to continue to work due to the extra care your children may need.
Of course, your family could be entitled to state benefits but a cash lump sum gives an extra cushion of security at such a critical time. It’s worth adding up how much cover you have in place and working out how much you may actually need. Amazingly, good life cover doesn’t have to be expensive and you will usually find it’s a lot cheaper than you thought.
Loan Protection Life Insurance
Decreasing life cover, or decreasing term insurance, is often a necessity when arranging a loan.
The life cover is designed to reduce over the term of the policy, broadly matching the outstanding loan amount. As any potential payout decreases over time you will find the premium of a Loan Protection Life Insurance policy is cheaper than Level Term Life Insurance.
Level Term Life Insurance
Level Term Life Insurance provides a fixed amount of cover, known as the sum assured, which becomes payable if the death of the insured occurs within the term of the policy.
