Life insurance is a type of insurance policy that can provide protection to your dependents if you pass away. The price of a life insurance policy will differ, depending on several factors including your age, health and lifestyle.

Having life insurance will provide you with peace of mind that any financial commitments you have will be taken care of when you’re not around – including mortgages, childcare costs or funeral expenses.

Why Do I Need Life Insurance?

If the worst should happen and you die, it’s important to make sure something is in place to cover ongoing costs and day-to-day expenses. Life insurance is vital if you have any dependants, such as a partner, child or anyone else who is financially reliant on you.

By paying for life insurance, you will be covered by a lump sum should you die during the term of the policy, giving your family financial security. If you don’t take out life insurance, you could be putting your loved ones at financial risk. That’s why it’s important to confront the issue and take out life cover.

How Does It Work?

In the majority of cases, the most effective form of life insurance is ‘term’ insurance. This type of policy will pay out an agreed amount as a lumpsum or as regular income, if you happened to die within a specific period otherwise known as the ‘term’. You will be able to choose the size of the pay out and the length of the term, so there is complete flexibility with the kind of life insurance deal you prefer to go for.
