Protect your family's financial security for the future

If you couldn't work, or you passed away, a life insurance payout would help your family's finances. They could use the money to pay off debts, like the rest of your mortgage.

Family life insurance isn't a standalone policy, plan or product. It just refers to a life insurance plan.

Do I need life insurance for my family? 

It's common for people to consider life insurance if:
  • You don’t have enough savings to cover your outgoings if you weren't earning
  • You're about to start a family or already have children
  • You couldn't pay for your child's school or university fees if you weren't earning.

What's the best type of life insurance cover for my family?

Below are some of the award-winning cover options that we offer. You can choose one plan, or combine options so it's personalised for you and your family.

  • Life insurance

    This pays out a tax-free lump sum to you or your family if you become terminally ill or die. For lifetime cover, and a guaranteed payout, there's whole of life insurance. For cover between five and 70 years, there's term life insurance. Not sure what's the best plan for you? Compare life insurance options.

  • Income protection insurance

    If you get sick and can't work, income protection insurance pays you part of your monthly income. It's tax free and helps you protect your finances while you recover. It can pay out up to 60% of your salary, but the payout is tax-free so it should replace most of it.

  • Serious Illness Cover

    You can add Serious Illness Cover to a life insurance plan or buy it as a standalone plan. If you're diagnosed with a serious illness we cover, you'll receive a lump sum payout. You can use the money for things like medical treatments and paying the household bills. There's also Serious Illness Cover for children which you can add to your plan.

  • Mortgage protection insurance

    Mortgage protection pays off the rest of your loan if you become ill or die during the policy. This means your family could keep their home.
