Family Life Cover

Taking out Family Life Cover is one simple thing you can do to protect those that matter most to you. Simply choose the Benefit Amount you want your family to receive, and this will be paid to them as a lump sum cash payment if you pass away or become terminally ill.

Your loved ones can then use the money to help keep their life on track – helping to cover the mortgage, any car loans or daily living costs.

You can also apply for a Joint Policy to cover yourself and your partner under the one plan.
