Six good reasons to choose us

Still wondering why you should get Royal London Over 50 Life Insurance? Here are a few reasons:

  1. Flexible payments – If you stop paying altogether you could lose your insurance. With us, you can reduce your monthly payments by bringing down your payout amount, as long as you’re paying at least £3.95 a month.
  2. Guaranteed acceptance with no medical - for UK residents aged 50-80
  3. Immediate insurance for accidental death – if you die from an accident in the first year
  4. Fully insured - after just one year. Some providers make you wait two years
  5. 5 Star Rating - from Fairer Finance for product features. No other over 50s plan has a 5 Star Rating*
  6. †Payout Promise – if you need to stop paying, we promise that 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 that policy anniversary or when you die, whichever comes first

Important things to know

Our Over 50 Life Insurance only pays out when you die – it can’t be cashed in at any time.

If you have to stop paying before you’re halfway through, your insurance will end and you’ll get nothing back.

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

Depending on how long you live, you could pay in more than we pay out

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

This insurance may not pay out enough for all your funeral costs.

You can choose a monthly payment of up to £100 depending on your age, and the maximum payout amount is £10,000. You can have more than one Royal London Over 50 Life Insurance policies, but you cannot pay more than £100 a month across the total number of policies, and you cannot exceed the total payout amount of £10,000.

Your insurance lasts until you die, providing you are up to date with your monthly payments. We will automatically stop collecting payments on the policy anniversary following your 90th birthday, or if you die, whichever comes first, but your insurance will continue for the rest of your life.

If you stop paying altogether you could lose your insurance. With us you can reduce your monthly payments by bringing down your payout amount, as long as you’re paying at least £3.95 a month with our flexible payments. Some providers won't let you do this.

The policy is designed for you to make your monthly payments until the policy anniversary following your 90th birthday. If you stop making your payments before you're halfway through your payment term your insurance will end and you'll get nothing back. If you stop after the halfway point, your family will get some money when you die.

No, but you can have one each.

No, you can't cash in your policy at any time. Our Over 50 Life Insurance policy only pays out on your death.

You can cancel your policy at any time. If you cancel within 30 days of starting your insurance, we'll refund any payments you've made. If you cancel after that, you won’t get anything back. If you feel you can’t afford your insurance, talk to us. We may be able to reduce it to bring down your payments.

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 that policy anniversary or when you die, whichever comes first.

The Funeral Benefit Option allows you to "charge" your Over 50 Life Insurance policy to Dignity Funeral Services. This means the payout amount will be paid directly to Dignity when you die, and it will go towards the cost of funeral services. A Dignity Funeral Director must be used and Dignity will also contribute £300 towards the cost of the funeral. You can choose the Funeral Benefit Option when you apply for the policy or at any point afterwards - it's up to you.

If you decide to take out the Funeral Benefit Option, and remove it, unfortunately we won't be able to add it back on at a later date.

Unlike our Over 50 Life Insurance, the optional Funeral Benefit Option is not regulated by the Prudential Regulation Authority or the Financial Conduct Authority.

No. It's worth thinking about inflation, as prices increase over time and the payout you choose today may not be enough for your family in the future. If you would like a bigger payout, you can apply to take out an extra policy for as little as £1 a month. The maximum insurance you can have is £10,000 or a maximum monthly payment of £100.

If you then want to leave more money for your family at a later date, you may be able to take out an extra policy from just £1. The maximum insurance you can have is £10,000 or a maximum monthly payment of £100 across all Over 50 Life Insurance policies taken out through Royal London.

You pay to the policy anniversary date after you turn 90, or until you pass away, whichever comes first. It’s worth remembering that depending on how long you live for, you could pay more in than the money paid out when you die.

If you die within the first year as a result of an accident, we will pay out the payout amount in full.

If you die within the first year, apart from an accident, we will refund everything you’ve paid us.

If you die after the first year, as long as you have continued to make your monthly payments, we will pay out the payout amount in full.

If you have to stop making your monthly payments you may still be entitled to a payout amount when you die depending on when you stop.
