Life Insurance

Life Insurance

Life Insurance  provides financial protection for those who depend on you. It pays a one-off cash payment if you die. The amount of cover needed is tailored to suit your individual needs.
 

Life Insurance pays a lump sum in the event of death or a terminal illness

 

Life insurance is designed to provide financial security for an unlimited range of financial commitments by paying a lump sum in the event of death.  Some examples of what life insurance may cover, but not limited too; mortgage repayments, credit card and personal loan repayments, providing funds to your spouse, future education costs for your children and funeral expenses.  

If you would like funds available to your family members to draw from to repay your debt in the event of your death, then life insurance should most definitely be considered as part of your financial plan.

 

Entry age for those who can apply for life insurance is 16 to 75. There is no maximum level of cover, however - the cover is subject to financial & medical assessment.
