What is a joint life insurance policy?

Joint life insurance is a policy where both partners are under one plan. You or your partner receive a payout when one becomes terminally ill or dies. When the policy pays out, the cover ends and the remaining partner is no longer covered.

How is joint life insurance different from single life insurance?

Single life insurance covers one person rather than two people under one plan. This means both partners are covered individually and both policies pay out.

Is it better to get joint or single life insurance? 

The plan that is right for you depends on your personal circumstances. 

Joint life insurance is often cheaper and gives you the right amount of cover as a couple. It considers both partner salaries, monthly outgoings and financial responsibilities.

Having a joint plan does mean it would only pay out once if one of you become ill or died.
