Life insurance is seen as modern necessity, especially if you have loved ones and family who would be financially affected if you died. Aviva offers a wide variety of life insurance plans to suit all needs, and whether you’re looking for financial protection to cover your mortgage or need specialist insurance because you’re aged over 50, Aviva will have a policy for your requirements.
Life insurance can sometimes be a little confusing and you may not have taken out a policy before simply because you didn’t understand how life protection works. At Aviva there are two main forms of life insurance models; those of level life and decreasing life insurance. Level life insurance is one of the best options if you want to ensure that, no matter when you die during a policy’s term, the amount of money that is paid out stays the same. The duration of the policy is up to you, and you can choose how much cover you want up to £500,000. Decreasing life insurance is the alternative, and whilst both the policy’s term and how much cover you want are still both up to you, the sum of the payout gradually decreases throughout the period that the policy lasts for. This form of life insurance is ideal if you want to only protect your mortgage costs, and the decreasing payout sum will broadly fall in line with the outstanding balance of your home loan.
Both the level life and decreasing life insurance options also offer a terminal illness payout provision, allowing you to have peace of mind that should you be diagnosed with an illness and have less than a year to live, Aviva policies will pay out as long as there is at least 18 months of the period still to run. Terminal illness cover shouldn’t be confused for critical illness cover, however, and if you want to protect yourself in the case of illness, then another product may be for you.
Aviva Life Insurance also offers a specialist plan that you can use if you’re aged between 50 and 80. Life insurance can be hard to come by when you reach middle-age because the risk that you might die during a plan’s term is increased. However, with Aviva’s Over 50’s Guaranteed Lifelong Protection Plan you can set premiums to ensure that funeral expenses or loan repayments are covered when you die.
Aviva prides itself in offering a great service level, with competitive quotes given alongside other UK life insurance providers so that you can make the best choice. A quote takes only a few minutes to obtain, there are no complicated forms to complete and premiums will never rise once they’ve been set at the outset of your policy. If you’re looking to protect your family and loved ones from financial complications should you die, then Aviva could provide the ideal solution.
