What is Life Insurance?

Life insurance is a simple, cost effective way of providing your family with financial support if you die.

Life insurance can be used to cover mortgage or rent payments, the cost of a funeral, to pay off debts and general living costs such as groceries and education expenses.

We compare life insurance quotes from Aegon, AIG, Aviva, Royal London, Friends Life, Legal & General, LV=, Vitality, Scottish Provident, and Zurich so you can find the most suitable life insurance policy.

Types of Life Insurance

Level term life insurance ensures that you’re covered for the same amount of money for the length of your policy.

Whole of life insurance will pay out a lump sum to your loved ones whenever you die, regardless of when this happens.

Decreasing term life insurance is designed to pay off a repayment mortgage when the policy holder dies. It decreases in value over time as the mortgage repayments lower.

Over 50s life insurance is often used to pay for funeral costs; no medical questions will be asked and is available exclusively to people over the age of 50.
