What is Life Insurance?

The purpose of life insurance is to help your family, or whoever you choose, manage financially once you’ve passed away. This policy is designed so that, following your death, your insurance provider will pay out an amount of money in a lump sum or in smaller payments (this is typically decided by the policyholder) to the beneficiaries, which can be used towards funeral costs, mortgages, outstanding debts, education costs and more.

Whether you need to buy this protection is entirely based on your personal circumstances and whether you have people who depend on you that might need that safety net if you’re no longer around to provide for them anymore.

When you're looking to buy life insurance it's worth comparing life insurance quotes to find the right cover at the right price, whilst also being aware that what is and isn’t covered varies across insurers.

You can talk to one of advisers at Howden Life & Health and discuss what type of cover you are looking for, how much cover you require and how long it needs to last. With just a few personal details, a member of the team will be able to provide you with a quotation from one of their leading insurers.
