Who is Life Assurance for?
First of all, you need to establish why it is you need life assurance. Below are a few scenarios which might ring true for you:
Leaving a legacy: life assurance is a good way of providing your loved ones with inheritance money when you pass away.
Funeral costs: A life assurance payout can help out your loved ones with the funeral costs, providing them with a lump sum.
Inheritance Tax: It can help your family deal with any bills associated with IHT.
As a result, many families are forced to take out loans just to cover this bill, which at an already upsetting time, may be particularly stressful. A whole-of-life insurance policy could help avoid this issue. The payout would provide the funds required to clear the inheritance tax bill without your loved ones needing to take out a loan or go into their own savings to cover it. This though, is reliant on the policy being written in trust.
Whole-of-life cover may also appeal if you are determined to leave some form of inheritance to your loved ones, or if you want to help with your funeral costs.
Many people who have a life insurance policy in place tend not to review it very often, however, it’s important to understand if the policy still meets your needs (as well as finding cheaper life insurance) - that’s where Cavendish can help.
How much Life Assurance cover do I need?
The amount of life assurance that you need really depends on your personal circumstances and what you’d like to leave for your family.
There really are no rules around what your life assurance payout can be used for and therefore how much insurance you need, it’s more a case of thinking about your personal situation. Of course, the more things you want to support your loved ones with, the larger the cover you will need.
