When someone is dealing with the deep loss of a parent or partner, the one thing you can do is remove money from the problems facing them.  Happily it is a problem that is simple and relatively inexpensive to solve.

Understanding your priorities

Not everyone needs life insurance. If you’re young , don’t have dependents or your own business - feel free to get on with your day. If you’re still reading this then we recommend that you take some action now. 

Understanding your options and priorities is key to the income protection planning process. How much insurance costs depends on what you want to cover. You can get as much life insurance as you can afford so it helps to think about what you want it to cover.  You will  pay a monthly amount based on your age and health and the amount of insurance you wish to have in place for your partner or family.

What type of life insurance is right for me?
