Protection for Life

A flexible life insurance plan that can change as your protection needs change.

Life insurance could be the most important financial product you ever buy.

It’s not easy to think about, but if something were to happen to you, having a plan in place could be the difference between your family maintaining their lifestyle and paying off the mortgage, or losing their home.

Our team are here to help make sure you and your family have the right financial protection you need. We want to make it easy to understand the basics of life insurance and show the benefits of being protected.

        Please remember: Protection for Life policies have no cash-in value at any time. If you don't pay your premiums on time your cover will stop, your benefit will end and you'll get nothing back. If the benefit amount has not been paid out by the end of the selected term, the policy will end and you'll get nothing back. Lifetime Cover has no fixed term but premiums must be paid until age 90.
