How family Life Cover could help
The payout from Life Insurance could help to cover some or all of your financial obligations if you were to suddenly pass away.
For example, a two-parent family with one child might have a combined annual income of £40,000 and monthly outgoings of £2,500.
If one parent took out a policy and passed away, their family could receive a payout of up to £750,000, enough to cover the household finances for some time.
The amount secured and the premiums you pay are up to you, making Life Insurance for low-income families a realistic option.
How much cover do I need?
The amount of Insurance to take out for your family depends on what costs they’d still need to pay if you weren’t around, and for how long. Think about expenses like:
- Mortgage payments
- Home maintenance
- Travel and transport costs
- Childcare and education fees
- Food, clothing, and general living costs
Which type of cover is useful for families?
You and your partner could choose to have a joint Life Insurance policy together, or you could each take out a single policy. With a joint policy, the premiums are often lower, as only a single payout is made when one of the policyholders dies. Joint policies will also payout regardless of whichever policyholder dies first, giving you peace of mind.
With two individual policies, your family will receive a payout following the death of each policyholder, so could benefit twice. Your premiums are likely to be more expensive as you’re each paying for a policy.
What can my family use my life insurance payout for?
- Mortgage repayments, or even clearing the mortgage entirely
- School or university fees for your children
- Funeral costs to give you a fitting send-off
- Replacing your income for day-today living expenses
Securing Life Insurance for family members means giving them the freedom to continue their way of life, in whatever way they need.
