Things you need to know

  • Depending on how long you live, total premiums paid may be greater than the cash sum payable on death.

  • This is not a savings or investment product and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made.

  • If you stop paying premiums when due, your plan will be cancelled and you won’t get anything back.

  • The cash sum is fixed, so inflation will reduce its buying power in the future.

  • Over 50s Fixed Life Insurance is not designed to meet the full costs of a funeral, and does not guarantee to do so.

  • If you choose to reduce your premiums, your cash sum will also be reduced.

Please read the key documents before you buy.
