How do I get discounted life insurance premiums?

To encourage you to make healthy lifestyle choices, we are offering up to 40% off your life insurance premiums for the first year when you add the Wellness Optimiser1 or Vitality Optimiser1 to your plan.

The discount will be automatically applied to your life insurance quote and the discount you receive will either depend on your age at entry or the term of your contract. Further information can be found on our optimiser page.

How do I keep the discount on my life insurance premiums?

To motivate you to live a healthy, active lifestyle you will also have the opportunity to continue receiving this discount for actively participating in the Vitality programme.

Your premiums will change depending on your Vitality Status2 and Wellness Status3 and the more engaged you are with the Vitality programme, the higher the likelihood of you maintaining your discount.
