Geraldine Synnottger gave their life insurance policy a rating

Legal & General

I think that Legal & General are: Very good

The policy was quick and easy to set up, the medical questions didn't take as long as I expected and the staff were very professional. It did take a while for my policy to get set up but I think that was more due to my doctor sending a report back than the fault of the insurer. Overall a good experience.

Matthew Shuck gave their life insurance policy a rating

Legal & General

I think that Legal & General are: Excellent

My mother sorted out this life insurance for my brother and I when we obtained our first mortgage. She found the staff friendly and helpful and the cost was very competitive. We are in our early twenties so hopefully we will not be making a claim for some time yet!!! A stress free experience.
