What does my life insurance cover when over 50?
HOW PROTECTION PLANS HELP
Life insurance cover doesn't change when you're over 50 on a VitalityLife policy. It enables individuals to leave behind a guaranteed cash lump sum to their loved ones when they die. This can contribute towards financial goals such as paying off the mortgage, everyday bills or even towards funeral costs.
WHO IT'S FOR
Whether you're receiving your pension or close to retirement our life insurance cover is designed to meet the needs of all ages.
We want to ensure joining the plan is as simple and smooth as possible. Depending on your type of cover you'll be accepted with no medical required before joining**.
You just need to tell us about any medical conditions as part of your application.

Track your Activity and Earn Rewards
We believe it’s important to reward our members for keeping active later in life. That’s why we’re one of the only life insurance providers to incentivise our members to remain active.
Choose an activity tracker or download our free app and link it to the Vitality Member Zone to earn Vitality points for getting active. To give you a helping hand, we also offer discounts on Polar and Garmin devices.
As you get active, you can earn weekly rewards from Starbucks and either Cineworld or Vue. Available on Life plans with Wellness Optimiser for an additional monthly fee. A minimum monthly premium applies.*
40% off monthly gym membership - joining fees apply
If you’re over 50, our life insurance cover could be suitable for you if you’re already active. However if you need a little kick start we've partnered with three of the UK's leading gym networks to offer big discounts on gym membership at selected clubs.
We want to make it easier, cheaper and more rewarding for our members to have a good quality of life.
