Life Insurance the easy way

Whether you’re looking to provide a financial safety net for your loved ones, moving house or a first time buyer looking to arrange your mortgage life insurance – or simply wanting to add some cover to what you’ve already got – you’ll want to make sure you choose the right type of cover and get a great deal too.

Life Insurance from Aviva is a quick and easy way to arrange cover that pays out a lump sum to your loved ones. You should note that there is no cash in value at any time. If you stop paying the premiums or survive to the end of the plan term the cover will end and no money will be returned to you.

What type of cover is right for me?

Cover to help protect your family

This is called Level Life Insurance and is a straightforward way to help provide financial security for your loved ones, or to help cover an interest only mortgage.

Cover to help protect your mortgage

This is called Decreasing Life Insurance and is a straightforward way to provide cover for a repayment mortgage or loan that decreases over time.

Things to think about

  • With Aviva, you get Terminal Illness Benefit included. This pays out the sum insured if you’re diagnosed with a terminal illness and not expected to live more than 12 months, assuming your plan has at least 18 months to run.
  • Terminal Illness Benefit is not the same as critical illness cover. Critical illness cover is not available with Aviva Life Insurance.

You can choose to take out an alternative plan offered by Aviva, which combines life cover with critical illness cover.

Benefits for you

  • It’s simple – get a quote under 2 minutes
  • Monthly premiums are guaranteed never to rise
  • Easy to arrange – no complicated forms to fill in
  • Premiums start from £5 a month – what you pay will depend on the amount of cover required and your personal circumstances
  • Joint cover available for you and your partner
  • We’ll send you £15 of M&S vouchers after you make your 3rd monthly payment when you buy direct from Aviva

YourLife Plan

YourLife Plan offers you Term Assurance, Critical Illness Cover, Family Income Benefit and Income Protection. You can buy just one cover if that’s all you need, or use them to create a complete package. Either way, there’s just one application process.

We’ve taken a fresh look at these types of cover too. We’ve asked customers what it is that they really need from them and tried to make sure our covers meet those needs

One of the things we’ve realised is that many people would benefit from Income Protection on top of their Critical Illness Cover but feel that taking out both covers is too expensive. So we’ve introduced Temporary Disability as an option in our Critical Illness Cover. This gives you short-term income protection if you can’t work because of an illness or injury, even if your condition isn’t on the list of critical illnesses that we cover. It’s not as comprehensive as an Income Protection policy, but it’s not as expensive either.

Low Start

Low Start offers the same great cover as YourLife Plan Term Assurance and Critical Illness with Term Assurance covers at a lower initial cost – allowing you to secure a level of protection that may have previously seemed unaffordable. Premiums then go up gradually each year at a rate that’s guaranteed at outset. Although the cost over the whole term will be higher than for a ‘traditional’ plan, the premium for each year of the term is fixed and you can opt out of the increase or switch to level premiums at any time by reducing the sum assured.

In the past, other insurers have introduced ways to make premiums more affordable at the start of a contract – but this usually meant that the cover was annually renewable and that you didn’t know how much the premiums would be in future years.

Low Start is different. We guarantee from day one how much the premiums will be for the entire period of the cover.

In the current economic climate Low Start could help you afford the level of protection that’s right for you – whatever your budget.

Real Life Cover

Most of us take out life insurance because we don’t want our family to struggle financially if we die. But while we’re under 65, we’re much more likely to be off work for six months or more through illness or injury than we are to die. Life insurance won’t pay anything then. Income Protection and Critical Illness Cover would help. But for many of us, the leap in price from life insurance to this kind of cover is just too great.

Real Life Cover is different. It combines life insurance, income protection and limited critical illness cover in one plan. But it only covers you for the things that are most likely to stop you earning a living or caring for your family, so you pay less than you would if you bought life insurance with traditional income protection and critical illness cover

Life Insurance

Life assurance pays out a set amount of money upon the death of the insured.

Whole Life Insurance

Whole life insurance or whole of life assurance is a life insurance policy that remains for the insurer’s whole life and in most cases requires premiums to be paid for the life of the policy.

Level Term Insurance

Level Term assurance also known as Level term life insurance is where the sum assured is guaranteed to be the same over a given period of years, the term. It is a specific life assurance policy that only pays out if the insured dies within the relevant term.

Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance

Mortgage payment protection insurance also known as Mortgage Protection Insurance pays mortgage repayments in the event of accident, sickness or unemployment.

Critical Illness Assurance

Critical illness insurance or critical illness cover is an insurance product. It is where an insurer is contracted to typically make a cash payment if the policy holder is diagnosed with one of the critical illness listed in the policy.

Permanent Health Insurance

Sometimes known as PHI pays a proportion of your salary if you are unable to work through sickness or accident. Unlike ASU insurance, it continues paying until your normal retirement date (or return to work, if sooner).

How to find the Life Insurance for You

To find the right Life Insurance for you ensure that you shop around. Each Life Insurance Company has different monthly premiums which will vary depending on your circumstances. You should always compare other insurers rather than just accept the initial Life Insurance quote you receive, especially if it is in conjunction with a loan or mortgage and the quotation is being provided by the lender.

Over 50 Life Insurance

The Guaranteed Over 50 Plan provided by

AXA Wealth Ltd trading as Sun Life Direct now offers more cover for everyone.

All new customers taking out a new over 50 life insurance Plan will receive a bigger cash sum for the same premium than if the Plan had been taken out before 1st July 2011. In fact, for an estimated 8 out of 10 new customers, the cash sum paid out will be at least 15% bigger*. And now we’re offering premiums from just £4 a month!

 

Why choose the Guaranteed Over 50 Plan for your life insurance?

A guaranteed fixed cash sum and no medical or health questions
  • The Guaranteed Over 50 Plan provides a fixed cash sum to leave as a gift for loved ones or to help towards funeral costs.
  • Provided you’re aged 50 – 85 and a UK resident, we guarantee to accept you.
  • We’ll pay out the fixed cash sum on your death as long as you’ve been paying into the Plan for at least two years.
  • If you die in the first 2 years, we’d pay back all the premiums paid, plus half as much again.
  • Because the cash sum is fixed, inflation will reduce its value over time.
Premiums from £4 a month & More Cover for Your Money
  • Premiums are now from as little as £4 a month – that’s the lowest premium available on the market for plans of this type.
  • Increased cash sums – everyone will get more money. In fact, for an estimated 8 out of 10 new customers, the cash sum paid out will be at least 15% bigger than if they had taken a Plan before 1st July 2011*.
See an example of how the Plan compares in the market Compare Life Insurance
Most popular Plan of its type
  • The Guaranteed Over 50 Plan is the most popular Plan of its type^, with over 760,000** customers. So you’re in safe hands. You can find out more about why our customers choose us here.
Affordable premiums that never change
  • You can choose any premium from £4 to £74 a month, as long as the cash sum doesn’t exceed £20,000.
  • The premium you choose will never go up and your cover will never go down – no matter what happens to your health.
  • You simply need to keep paying in every month throughout your life, as if you stop paying, your cover will end and you won’t get anything back.
  • Depending on how long you live, the cash sum paid out could be less than the total amount paid in premiums.
PLUS
  • The first month’s premium is free.
  • You can choose a gift to welcome you into the Plan.
  • If you were to die in a travel accident, or within three months of an accident as a result of your injuries, we’d pay out three times your fixed cash sum.

Life Insurance – Cover Details

We offer the following life insurance options:

Life Level Term

Life Level Term Insurance has an amount of cover which remains the same throughout the term of the policy. You decide the number of years you wish the policy to be in force and the level of cover you require at the outset. This policy will pay out on the death of the insured, or if critical illness cover is added, on the diagnosis of a specified critical illness. Whichever occurs first.

Mortgage Life Insurance

The amount of cover which a Mortgage Life Insurance policy provides decreases in line with the outstanding balance on a standard repayment mortgage. You choose the length of the policy (which is usually the same as the remaining years on your mortgage) and the initial level of cover at the outset. This policy will pay out on the death of the insured, or if critical illness cover is added, on the diagnosis of a specified critical illness. Whichever occurs first.

Critical Illness Cover

A Critical Illness policy pays out a lump sum upon diagnosis of a serious illness that is specified in the policy. The term and sum to be insured are decided at the outset. If a critical illness is diagnosed during the specified term then the sum insured is paid out.
All the above policies can be set up on a single or joint life basis. If a claim has not been made before the end of the term then the plan ceases and nothing is paid out. There is no cash in value at any time. If a claim is made then the policy ceases. In the case of Joint Life policies, cover will cease following the first claim from either life.

Long Term Income Protection (PHI)

Long Term Income Protection Insurance also known as Permanent Health Insurance is designed to pay you a regular income if an illness or injury prevents you from working. The income can be paid for as long as you are unable to work through accident, sickness or until the end of the policy term. This product has no investment content and has no cash in value at any time.

Adviser Financial usually offers home insurance from the whole of the UK market.

A financial adviser, is a professional who renders financial services to individuals, businesses and governments. This can involve investment advice, which may include pension planning, and/or advice on life insurance and other insurances such as income protection insurance, critical illness insurance etc., and/or advice on mortgages.[1]

Ideally, the financial advisor helps the client maintain the desired balance of investment income, capital gains, and acceptable level of risk by using proper asset allocation. Financial advisors use stock, bonds, mutual funds, real estate investment trusts (REITs), options, futures, notes, and insurance products to meet the needs of their clients. Many financial advisers receive a commission payment for the various financial products that they broker, although “fee-based” planning is becoming increasingly popular in the financial services industry.

A further distinction should be made between “fee-based” and “fee-only” advisers. Fee-based advisers often charge asset based fees but may also collect commissions. Fee-only advisers do not collect commissions or referral fees paid by other product or service providers.[citation needed]

Some investment advisors only charge a fee based on the assets managed for the client. Typically they charge about 1.0 to 1.5% per year to make the investment decisions for the client. They do not collect
