Life Insurance provides financial protection for your family and loved ones in the event of your death.
Life Insurance is essential if you have a mortgage, loan or people financially dependent on you. This insurance policy pays out a tax free lump sum upon your death. The money from this can be used to pay off a mortgage/loan, provide income for your family or to help with funeral costs.
Life Insurance is a protection policy that pays a cash lump sum to your loved ones in the event of your death, or to you in the event of a terminal diagnosis (less than 12 months to live). If your loved ones are financially dependent on you, then a Life Insurance policy can provide you with the peace of mind that they will be taken care of if you are no longer there.

When applying for Life Insurance you should have realistic expectations as to the amount of cover that you need.

How does my Special Risk affect this?
This very much depends upon what your Special Risk is and the amount of cover that you are wanting to secure. Medical conditions, hazardous pastimes, occupations and foreign travel will all need to be fully disclosed to the insurance provider at the point of application. The acceptance terms of your application by the insurer will be dependent upon the perceived added risk of your disclosure.
Life Insurance will be underwritten with your details and you will be provided with acceptance terms of either normal (standard policy premium), special terms (increased policy premium), or in extreme circumstances you may be declined cover. It is essential that you place your Life Insurance application with an insurance provider who is most likely to offer you cover and at the best terms. This is where our years of experience in the Insurance market comes to your advantage!
