What is life insurance and how does it work?

Life insurance is an agreement between yourself and a number of many life insurance companies. A contract is drawn where you agree to pay (usually monthly) an insurance policy. The life insurance company or insurer then agrees to pay you or your loved ones a lump sum of money if you get critically ill and/or die.

We mentioned two types of insurance there (critical and life) however there are many types of different life insurances. Our expert team get to know you, your situation and health to provide you with the best quote on the insurance market. Our team will search the whole insurance market to find the most cover for the best price.

Is life insurance worth getting?

The straightforward answer is that most people do need some kind of life insurance.

Not being fully financially covered can have have devastating effects if the worse was to happen in your household:

  • A death
  • someone being seriously ill

Make sure that your children, wife or husband are safe and financially looked after should something happen to you.

If you own a property you need to know that those loved ones will always have a roof over their heads, even if you are no longer here or if you are too ill to make the monthly outgoings.

With a whole host of different insurances available, it’s hard to know which ones will benefit you and which ones may end up costing you a lot, without much gain. Having Life Insurance cover in place removes all financial burden at an extremely difficult time. On the death of your partner, your children or any beneficiary that you nominate will receive a lump sum payout that can be used for anything you need. Make sure to find an insurance broker with a team of advisers who are willing to take the time to explain the different options available to you and your situation.

This could range from paying off your mortgage loan, covering monthly bills, paying funeral costs, to even a holiday to get some rest & distance, investing the money for the future or using it for your children’s education. The list is endless! You insure your car, your home, why wouldn’t you insure yourself? So is Life Insurance worth it? if you have loved ones that will miss you when you’re gone, not just emotionally but in every sense of the word, then yes – protect yourself, protect them.

How do Life Insurance policies work?

Life Insurance policies work very simply, you are insuring your life and so if you die the policy pays out. It’s as simple as that! Certain insurers can apply some exclusions, such as suicide in the first 12 months, but any of these will be made clear by the insurer or broker at the time of taking out the cover.

Pick an amount to insure yourself for: This is called the Sum Assured. You can have as little or as much* Life Insurance as you want. Some people choose the amount of their mortgage loan, some a fixed amount to leave to each of their children, some just have a figure in mind.
Choose the length of time you want to insure yourself for: This is called the Term. The term can be a minimum of 5 years. Some people choose a term that matches their mortgage term, some until their children reach a non-dependant age and some until retirement age.
Pick the type of cover you want: See What type of Life Insurance covers are there? below.
Start your cover: You will need to answer some Health & Lifestyle questions so the insurer can look at your health profile. Based on these answers they will underwrite your application and confirm the premium to you. Once accepted, Life Insurance provides instant protection.

What type of Life Insurance covers are there?

There are two main types of Life Insurance you can have. These are called Decreasing Term Assurance and Level Term Assurance.

Decreasing Term Assurance (Mortgage Protection)

Decreasing Term Assurance: which can also be called Mortgage Protection, is where the sum assured tracks down over the term of the policy as your mortgage decreases. This means that the sum assured will eventually reduce to nothing, but will always be enough to pay off your mortgage loan entirely.

Level Term Assurance (Family Protection)

Level Term Assurance: which can also be called Family Protection, is where the sum assured remains the same throughout the term of the policy. This means that no matter when you claimed on the policy, the payout would always be the same. This cover is perfect if you want to ensure a certain fixed amount of money is left behind if the worst were to happen.

Types of insurance available

Life insurance pays out in the event of you dying. Apologies if this is a little hard-hitting however this is exactly why you need life insurance. Your loved ones will have enough to cope within the event of your death. Don’t give them financial problems to compound this. Life insurance is very affordable. Get a quote for life assurance and you will soon see this.

The purpose this is to pay your mortgage off should something happen to you. You will be able to choose just life cover or life with critical illness cover. This would mean that in the event of something happening to you your mortgage debt is repaid. This means you will always have a roof over your head and one less bill to pay each month.

Term insurance is usually used to protect you and your family in the event of your death or critical illness. Many people have this in addition to mortgage protection especially when they have a young family. The reason it is called term insurance is that a specific term will be chosen that you need cover for. The most common term chosen is one to tie in with your dependents becoming 18 or 20 years old.

Critical illness cover (CIC) is there to protect you as well as your family! What do we mean by this? CIC the insurance covers you in the event of you becoming very ill. To give you an idea of what it includes, here are just a few examples:

  • CancerHeart Attack
  • Stroke
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Benign Brain Tumour

Most insurance companies will cover you for over 50 conditions to are critical, so you are fully covered for whatever life throws at you.

Whereas life insurance pays out in the event of your death to your family, critical illness cover is different as it pays out to YOU! This means that you will be able to pay your mortgage off so that you and your family will always have a roof over your head.

In the event of being critically ill, employers will often pay your salary for a few months and then this will stop suddenly, putting you in financial difficulties. This is where this type of cover will save the day. You will be paid a lump sum which you can decide what you do with. You may use it to replace your salary for a while and then when you get better you may decide to go back to work or start a less stressful job and use the money to subsidise your income.

Terminal illness benefit is included as standard for all life Assurance policies and is separate to critical illness cover If you are given a terminal illness diagnosis for any condition and you are not expected to live for more than 12 months, you will receive the full payout early whilst you are still alive. The idea of terminal illness benefit is you will receive the payout before you pass away when you need it the most.

People ask us “do self-employed get sick pay?” we say, speak to us about income protection insurance.

The idea of income protection insurance is to pay you a long-term monthly payment in the event of you becoming too unwell to work. You will be able to choose the age that you will get the monthly payment until. Most people will choose it to be paid until their retirement age. You will also get the choice of how long you want to wait before you start receiving the payout. In some cases, people opt for a policy that starts paying out straight away or after a month and sometimes people choose to wait 6 months before they start receiving the payout in line with their company sick pay ending.

There are companies that specialise at giving cover for pre-existing medical conditions. These companies look at your personal circumstances and sometimes have policies for specific illnesses, for example, high blood pressure. It is worth getting advice as having a life insurance policy that pays out to your loved ones if you pass away is very important.

You need to get sound advice before you put a policy in trust as it will depend on your personal circumstances.

Putting a life insurance policy in trust involves a legal arrangement that helps to ensure that if you pass away the lump sum from that policy is used as you wanted. For example, a lump sum to go to loved ones. If you do not have a trust, then the money will be used to pay off any debts you have left outstanding when you pass away.
