Understanding Over 50 Life Insurance

Before talking to a consultant, it's good to be informed

Number 1 Icon

Your policy won't work like a savings or investment account – it will only pay out when a valid claim is made

Number 2 Icon

Depending on when you pass away, the total paid in premiums could exceed the cash sum your loved ones receive

Number 3 Icon

If you stop paying premiums, your Over 50 Life Insurance plan will be cancelled and won't pay out

Number 4 Icon

Your provider may allow you to reduce your premiums; this means the lump sum paid out will be smaller

Over 50 Life Insurance needn't be perplexing. QuoteSearch can introduce you to a consultant who'll help you find the right policy at the right price.

Over 50 Life Insurance FAQs

Over 50 Life Insurance is a simple way to leave your loved ones money when you die, as a gift or to help pay for your funeral. Choose how much you want to pay each month or how much cover you want to leave behind when you die. The more you pay each month, the bigger the pay-out your family will get.

If you're aged 50-79 and a UK resident, you should be eligible, although criteria may vary from provider-to-provider.

Accidental Death cover usually takes effect immediately. After either 12 or 24 months, you'll be fully covered if you die.

Most providers are flexible and recognise that people's circumstances change. It's best to check before buying.

If you stop paying your premiums, all cover will cease and no pay-out will be made if you die.

The amount of cover you get will depend on your age and the maximum level that the provider will allow you to have. The younger you are, the more your loved ones could receive as a lump sum pay-out, should you die.
