Coronavirus (Covid-19) - How is life insurance affected?

Can I still apply for life insurance?

Yes you can still apply for life insurance. We have measures in place to protect our staff whilst still processing all life insurance applications and enquiries. Insurers are still processing applications whilst asking sensible questions relating to Coronavirus.

Can I apply if I have been diagnosed with Coronavirus?

If you have been diagnosed with Coronavirus you would not be able to apply for life insurance. Once you have recovered and assuming you make a full recovery without any lasting symptoms you would be able to apply as normal.

Will life insurance exclude Coronavirus?

Assuming you’re in good health, have not been diagnosed with Coronavirus and are not suffering any of the symptoms a new life insurance policy will not exclude Coronavirus.

Will my existing life insurance policy cover death from Coronavirus?

We would suggest checking with your existing insurer, the vast majority of life insurance policies would cover death from Coronavirus. Certainly all life insurance policies sold by us would cover Coronavirus.

Yes to cheaper life insurance. No to cuddly toys.

What is life insurance?

The most straightforward 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Life insurance options

Level Term Insurance

The most popular type of life insurance. Choose the amount of cover and the number of years you want the policy for. Your cover amount does not reduce.

Mortgage Life Insurance

This type of life insurance is designed to pay off your mortgage if you die. Your cover reduces roughly in line with your re-payment mortgage.

Family Income Benefit

Provides regular income if you die instead of a lump sum. When you get a quote, choose the amount of annual cover you need, rather than a lump sum.

Critical Illness Cover

An optional extra available on all life insurance policies. Provides a lump sum payment on the diagnosis of certain serious illnesses.

Life Insurance Trusts

Writing your policy in trust can help avoid inheritance tax and get a claim paid faster. Often considered a complex subject, we’ll explain how it works in clear and simple terms.
