Whole of life insurance is an insurance policy that lasts for your lifetime, and is not limited to a term. When you pass away the policy will pay a lump sum payment to your family or dependents. It will also pay out immediately if you are diagnosed with a Terminal Illness.
It can also be used as a tax-free inheritance plan for your family, so as not to impact their inheritance (33% inheritance tax liability).
Our Whole of Life Insurance has a Guaranteed Premium. Meaning your monthly payments will never change.

When you’re taking out a Whole of Life insurance plan, you choose the amount you want to be paid out on death. You will then pay a set amount per month until you pass away. The policy then pays out a lump sum to your family. This premium never increases.
If for any reason your circumstances change over time, such as no longer being able to afford your Whole of Life Insurance, or inheritance tax no longer being a concern.. You might decide to stop paying your premium before you die. Which normally means you get nothing back.
With a savings option – Provided you’ve had your policy for 15 years and consistently paid it, you are guaranteed money back if you cancel or stop paying your policy.

Your options are – Receive a reduced lump sum on death, or you can take an immediate cash payment.
