What is Life Insurance?


What is Life Insurance?
Life insurance is a contract between an insurance policy holder and an insurer, where the insurer promises to pay out lump sum to your dependants should you pass away during the term of the contract. The cost of policy is determined by a number of factors including your age, health, and lifestyle.

Why do you need life insurance?

Life insurance can help your partner or children continue to pay for any financual commitments you have that might then fall to them to pay if you passed away.

Life insurance can help to make sure your dependants would then be able to keep up with any mortgage repayments and bills you pay if you passed away. The lump sum payout they would receive could also help to pay for other things you would usually help to cover, like food bills or schooling.
