What is Life Insurance?

Life insurance is put in place so that your dependants will receive money after you die.

This can be paid out as either a lump sum or in regular payments, depending on the policy you choose. Life insurance exists to ensure that your family left behind does not fall into financial difficulties, and can be used to cover the cost of not only mortgage payments, but also other bills and expenses (some policies even cover the costs of funerals). One option is to enrol in term life insurance, during which the policy covers a specific period of time. Should you die during the term of your policy, your loved ones will receive a pay out. The other option is to enrol in a whole-of-life policy, which means your loved ones will receive a pay out regardless of when you die. This normally comes with a higher premium, but it also provides a higher level of reassurance to your loved ones as well.

Do I Need Life Insurance?

The decision to take out life insurance is a personal one, and is by no means reliant on on you getting a mortgage.

Ultimately most people decide to take out a policy if they have dependents for which they are the sole provider. It is ideal for people that want to protect their partners and children so that they are not left to struggle financially, and so many people consider taking out life insurance at the time of moving house and making a big life change. With a life insurance policy, you can make sure that your family are protected, and we can help you make this crucial decision.
