Award-winning Life Cover

Whether you're single, in a relationship, have children or getting ready to retire, life insurance can give you – and those you love most - the precious reassurance that comes with knowing the future is more financially secure.

Life Cover pays out a sum of money to your family or a nominated person when you die. With our 5-star Defaqto cover, you can either take out Term Life Insurance for a fixed number of years; or Whole of Life Insurance for the rest of your life.

By taking out Life Cover, you know that your actions today will give your family some extra welcome help tomorrow. If the worst should happen to you, we can help with such things as paying off your debts, household bills or mortgage repayments, to give your family a little extra support when they need it most.

Life Cover frequently asked questions

Your questions answered

Why should I buy life insurance?

It depends on where you are in life. However, for many people, life insurance is an excellent way to protect the things that mean the most to you – such as making sure your family’s financial future is more secure if something unexpected happens to you.

How do you work out the price of my life insurance?

Your premiums are based on lots of things, such as your age, height and weight; your health; whether you’re employed in a high-risk occupation; and whether you smoke.

How long should I take out life insurance for?

It’s really entirely up to you. We offer a minimum term of five years and a maximum term of your entire life, with Whole of Life insurance. Before you decide, we recommend you talk to a VitalityLife Adviser, so that they can design a plan around what works specifically for you.

What are the minimum monthly premium and minimum cover amounts?

The minimum monthly premium for life insurance at VitalityLife is £8 and the minimum cover amount is £10,000. However, the level of cover you’ll get for £8 a month will depend on your age; height and weight; whether or not you smoke; general health and your medical history.
