Things you need to know

Fixed and Increasing Plans

  • A claim can be made after one year – regardless of the cause of death, or within one year due to accidental death. If you die within the first year of starting your plan for any reason other than accident, only the premiums already paid will be returned.

  • Depending on how long you live, the 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 before the end of your policy, your cover will end 30 days after your missed premium and you won’t get anything back.

Fixed Plan only

  • Inflation will reduce the value of the cash sum in future.

Increasing Plan only

  • With the Increasing Plan your cash sum is reviewed each year in line with the change in the Retail Prices Index (RPI). Your premium will also be reviewed each year and will increase by one and a half times the change in RPI. RPI may not rise at the same pace as funeral costs.

  • If you’re worried you won’t be able to afford the increase in premium, you can decline the increase following your annual review. If you do this the cash sum will remain the same from that point, and inflation will reduce its value in the future. You won’t be able to increase your cash sum or premium in future years.
