What is life insurance?
Life insurance gives your loved ones a lump sum when you pass away or if you’re diagnosed with a terminal illness.
Consider a life insurance policy if you have children or loved ones who are financially dependent on you.
They can use the money for anything, like paying off your mortgage and funeral costs.

We paid 99.7% of life cover claims in 2022 (Vitality Claims and Benefits Report, 2023)
It hugely helped knowing I had cover...
Hayley never expected she would need to make a claim on her Serious Illness Cover, let alone twice before the age of 40. However, after being rushed into hospital with a blood clot in her lungs – a condition only covered by Vitality – aged just 36, just two years later she was diagnosed with cancer.
How does life insurance work?
It's not as scary as it sounds.

2 Make a claim with us

3 Your family get a lump sum
When the claim is approved, they’ll get a lump sum into the nominated bank account. They could use this for anything, like paying off the mortgage.
What are the different types of life insurance?
There are two types of life insurance policies - term life insurance and whole of life insurance.
The most popular and cheaper of the two is term life insurance, which covers you for between five and 70 years. If you pass away within the policy term, your loved ones get a lump sum.
Whole of life insurance lasts your whole life so your family get a guaranteed lump sum. The policy only ends when you pass away, so the monthly premiums are more expensive.
How much money should you leave your family?
Have a think about how much:
- Is left to pay off on your mortgage
- Other debts you need to pay off, like credit cards and loans
- Money you’d need for childcare or education
- Money your family may need to cover your funeral
How much does life insurance cost?
How much you pay for life insurance depends on things like:
- How much cover you need e.g. to cover a mortgage or school fees
- Your health and lifestyle, including previous conditions or smoking
- Whether you have a high-risk job such as a firefighter
