Vitality Life have announced that they are updating the points system that they use to calculate Life Insurance, Serious Illness, Income Protection and Private Medical Insurance policies.

With a Vitality Life policy you can reduce your policy premiums for living a healthy and active lifestyle. They currently have four tiers of points for you to reach in order to keep your premiums low. The following points apply to joint life Vitality insurance policies (2+ adults):

Tier Points Needed Premium
Bronze 0 +2% to previous year
Silver 1600 +1% to previous year
Gold 3200 No change to premium
Platinum 4800 -1% to previous year

Vitality Life are continuing to improve this product and have now altered their points system to make it easier for you to reach the higher reward levels. As of October 2015 the new points system for joint life plans will be as follows:

Tier Points Needed Examples of how to achieve it (per planholder)
Bronze 0 Do nothing
Silver 1200
  • Walk 10,000 steps two days a week
  • Eight sessions of high intensity exercise per year
Gold 2400
  • Walk 12,500 steps two days a week
  • Sixteen sessions of high intensity exercise per year
Platinum 3600
  • Walk 12,500 steps two days a week
  • Two sessions of high intensity exercise per week

If you have a hectic lifestyle and cannot commit to this leave of exercise each week there is no need to worry, there are many 'non-exercise' ways that you can gain points towards your Life Insurance policy. The above examples of how to achieve the points through exercise are just to show you one way of reaching the target points goal. There are many different ways to gain points and you can both contribute equally to the points or have one of you gain more than the other, they will all go towards your joint plan.

Below we have included a range of additional activities that you can pursue to gain points towards your Vitality Life policy.
