Life insurance

With a level term policy the amount you are covered for is fixed when you start paying your premiums and it stays the same throughout the term. If you die within the policy term then a guaranteed lump sum of money will be paid. This type of policy could be used to leave a lump sum for your loved ones, replace an income or cover an interest only mortgage (where the amount you owe on your mortgage remains the same).

Mortgage life insurance

With mortgage protection life insurance, the amount you are covered for decreases over the term of the policy but your premium remains the same. This type of policy is commonly used to cover the outstanding balance of a standard repayment mortgage.

Help

How long you should be covered for varies depending on individual circumstances but you could use your reasons for taking out life insurance as a guide. For example:
- When will your mortgage come to an end?
- When will your family and dependents become self-sufficient?

Help

You can work out the amount of cover you need by totalling up your financial commitments. You should also consider how much your family would still need if you were to die. Things you could consider are:
- your outstanding mortgage balance
- other financial commitments such as loans, overdrafts and credit card balances
- education costs for your children
- on going family and home living costs (bills, food, home maintenance and home improvements)
- any lump sum you may want to leave your loved ones for their future

Who is the cover for?
Help

A single life policy insures only you. A joint life policy insures two lives. You and the other insured life must have a shared financial interest (insurable interest). For example, joint financial commitments such as mortgages or children or two friends with a joint mortgage.

If there are two lives to insure you could have one policy each. Two single policies may be more expensive than a joint policy but it will mean that if one policy is claimed against then the other policy will remain in force.
