The most straight forward type of life insurance pays out a chosen amount of money if the person insured dies. Cover is often taken out to provide for loved ones or to pay off a mortgage in the event of death. You’ll need to decide how much cover you would like and how long you’d like the policy to run for.
What is life insurance?
Do I need life insurance?
It really depends on your circumstances. An average single person with no dependants probably doesn’t. The main earner in a family with children definitely does! It’s not a nice subject but imagine how your loved ones would cope financially if you weren’t around.

How does life insurance work?
You choose how much cover you want and how many years you want cover for. You’ll pay a monthly premium to the life insurance company for as long as you keep your policy. If you die during the life of your policy the amount of cover you’ve chosen will be paid out by the insurer.
How much cover do I need?
Our most common question by far. The answer is that it depends entirely on your circumstances. A couple purchasing their first property together on a tight budget might want just enough cover to pay off the mortgage if one of them were to die. Another couple with a larger mortgage and two children may want enough cover to pay off the mortgage, cover the costs involved in raising children and provide for their surviving spouse/partner.
Why are your premiums lower than other comparison websites?
Life insurance policies can pay big commissions to the broker/comparison site. If the broker keeps this commission it makes your premium more expensive. We sacrifice the commission and just charge £25. That’s why your premiums are cheaper with us.
Can I get a cheaper premium by applying directly with the insurer?
Strange as it may seem this is often the most expensive way to buy life insurance. The commission that would normally be paid to a broker (or sacrificed if you’re us) is kept in full by the insurance company.

Types of Life Insurance
This is the most popular type of life insurance. Choose the amount of cover you would like and the number of years you want the policy to run for. Your cover amount does not reduce.
This type of policy is designed to pay off your mortgage in the event of death. It is only really appropriate for people with a re-payment mortgage. Your cover reduces roughly in line with your mortgage.
A less well known alternative to level term insurance. Provides a regular income in the event of death instead of a lump sum payment. When you’re getting a quote you choose the amount of annual cover you need.
