Beyond price, there are plenty of other good reasons to choose Royal London as your Over 50s Life Cover provider. To make it easier for you, the table below shows how we compare to SunLife.

Comparison table

Information for comparison is from SunLife's website. Comparing available SunLife online quotes on 3rd January 2019 and our current quotes for new non-smoker customers, most of the time we pay out more than SunLife, where age and monthly payments are comparable. Features and payouts can change at any time. The terms and conditions of the policies are not the same but both provide cover that could pay an amount of money when you die.

If you need to stop paying, your family can still get at least half of the payout when you die, as long as you’re at least halfway through paying for your policy. That’s halfway from the start of the policy until the policy anniversary date after you turn 90. You stop paying at the policy anniversary date or when you die, whichever comes first.

This information details how we make our price comparison against SunLife.

Important things to know

1. Our over 50s policy only pays out on your death – it can’t be cashed in at any time. 

2. Stop paying before you’re halfway through and your cover will end, and you’ll get nothing back.

3. In the first 12 months we will not pay out the full amount of money, unless you die from an accident that’s covered by the policy.

4. You could pay more in than the money paid out when you die.

5. Over time, inflation will reduce the value of the payout amount.
