In the case of two people jointly covered, Life Insurance will pay out on the death of the first person (but then not the death of the second).

There must be an 'insurable interest' between the first and second person. This means that if one person were to die, the other would suffer a financial loss that the Life Insurance policy can help to cover. Parties with insurable interest are married couples, civil partners, people sharing a mortgage or loan.

About your cover

We need to ask you a few questions about what you need from your cover. Don't worry - you can always change these answers after you've seen your results.

Expand more information about choosing a cover amount Collapse more information about choosing a cover amount

You need to choose an amount that reflects the financial needs of you and your dependents. Also, bear in mind that you need to choose an amount that is comfortably within your budget.

There are two really important points to consider:

  • Your mortgage balance (if you have one).
  • How much you'd like to leave as a lump sum for your family.

So, you need to think about how much you'd need to clear your mortgage balance, and how much your family would need to cover outgoings if you were no longer around.

If you need help working this out - please use our cover calculator.

Please enter a term between 5 years and 40 years

Please select either Level or Decreasing cover

What type of cover do you need?

Level term policies pay out a fixed amount no matter when you claim during the policy term.

Decreasing term policies reduce the amount that's paid out over time. They are typically taken out to cover a repayment mortgage.

Please select whether Critical Illness cover is required

Critical illness cover is designed to pay out a lump sum if you get a serious illness or suffer traumatic life-changing injury. The illnesses covered vary from one insurer to the next, but cancer, stroke, heart attack and multiple sclerosis will be included.

This cover isn't built into your life insurance policy. Life insurance is intended to pay out when you die, or if you're diagnosed with a terminal illness where you're likely to die in the near future (usually within 12 months). Critical illness cover covers you for serious illnesses from which you may recover.

Critical illness cover is designed to pay out a lump sum if you get a serious illness such as cancer, stroke, heart attack or multiple sclerosis. It's worth noting that this cover is separate and doesn't come as part of a life insurance policy.

Critical illness cover covers you for serious illnesses from which you may recover.

Don't worry too much about this. You can adjust the amount after seeing your results based on what you can afford.

Things to consider if you became critically ill:

  • Do you have any debts or savings?
  • Do your employee benefits offer any cover?
  • Would you receive any financial help from your family?

It's worth remembering that if you fall critically ill, you might not be able to earn income, and your monthly outgoings could also increase.
