Features comparison information was correct on 13th May 2020. Features could change at any time. Ts&Cs of the policies are not the same but each provides insurance that could pay out 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 half way through paying for your policy. That's halfway from the start of the policy until the policy anniversary date after you turn 95. You stop paying at that policy anniversary or when you die, whichever comes first.
Frequently asked questions about over 60 life insurance
What is over 60 life insurance?
It is for people who need insurance and are over 60.
Our Over 50 Life Insurance is available for UK residents who are 50 to 80 years old. So it could be something to consider if you want to leave a gift for your loved ones or contribute towards your funeral costs.
How long does it take for a successful claim to be paid?
Payment is made via BACS transfer as soon as the claim has been approved and we have all the paperwork we asked for. Typically, the funds clear within three to five working days.
You can find out more about making a claim here.
Can I reduce my payments or take a payment holiday from my Over 50 Life Insurance?
If you stop paying altogether you could lose your insurance. We want to keep you covered and our Over 50 Life Insurance has ways to help you do that:
Flexible payments – you can reduce your monthly payments by bringing down your payout amount, as long as you’re paying at least £3.95 a month.
Payment holiday - After your first year, you can have a break from making your monthly payments for up to six months – and still stay insured. You’ll have to make up the missed payments or reduce your payout amount after your payment holiday finishes.
Payout Promise – If you need to stop paying altogether, 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 95. You stop paying at that policy anniversary or when you die, whichever comes first.
How does our Over 50 Life Insurance work?
You make monthly payments to leave behind money to loved ones when you die, as a gift or to help pay for your funeral.
Do I need a medical?
No, if you’re aged 50 to 80 and a UK resident you can buy our Over 50 Life Insurance without taking a medical. There may be a question about whether you smoke or not, but this is as far as we pry into your health.
Is it different to normal life insurance?
Traditional life insurance insures you for a fixed term. So it would only pay out if you were to die in that period. That's why it's often known as term life insurance.
With our Over 50 Life Insurance, if you die any time after your first year, and your payments are up to date, your policy pays out. That's why it's known as whole-of-life insurance.
Why get life insurance at 60?
While you can't turn the clock back or wave away any health problems, you may want to consider our Over 50 Life Insurance. It's designed for people aged 50 to 80. It's a way to leave a small gift for your family when you pass away, or to contribute towards your funeral costs. And as long as you're a UK resident aged 50 to 80, you're guaranteed acceptance with no medical.
