Legal & General
Legal and General aims to provide products to help protect the lives and health of its many customers. The Legal & General group is established as one of the leading UK life insurance providers and has more than 5.75million people relying on it for life insurance, pensions and more.
Legal & General life insurance (also known as ‘Legal & General life assurance’ or ‘Legal & General term assurance’) policies aim to provide peace of mind. If you die during the policy term it will pay out a lump sum and you can choose the amount of cover to buy with life insurance premiums starting at just £6 a month. The company offers both general life cover (level term life insurance) and mortgage life insurance (decreasing term life insurance).
The general life insurance is a simple and popular option guaranteeing a cash sum when the policyholder dies and includes terminal illness cover at no extra cost. The amount you pay remains the same throughout the term. The Legal & General mortgage life insurance option is designed to help pay off your mortgage if you die during the policy term and decreases in line with your remaining mortgage debt. The policy also includes terminal illness cover at no extra cost, ensuring financial security for your dependents and loved ones.
As additional options, Legal & General offers both critical illness cover and waiver of payment. The critical illness policy pays out a lump sum if you are diagnosed with one of the specified illnesses or disabilities and cover for your children is included at no extra charge. The waiver of payment option means that premiums are waived if you suffer an accident or illness that prevents you from working for more than six months. The company also offers a special over 50s life insurance plan.
