What is term assurance?

Simple fixed term life assurance is one of the simplest and most cost effective ways to protect your loved ones.

Benefits of fixed term assurance

A fixed term insurance policy is ideal for covering liabilities that don’t change (for example a mortgage or a loan).

Cover can be matched to the term of your repayment to ensure you only pay for what you need.

You can often add other options such as critical illness cover, decreasing or increasing cover (depending on your needs) and waiver of premium, which is like insurance for your premiums.

Which type of term cover is right for you?

Level Term Assurance

Level term cover is an ideal option to protect against a debt that stays level, for example an interest only mortgage.

Decreasing Term Assurance

Sometimes known as Mortgage Protection assurance, a decreasing plan reduces in value over time, perfect for debts that are being repaid. Decreasing cover is cheaper overall than a level plan but the costs are still fixed.

Decreasing Term Assurance

Inflation is the enemy of all financial planning. An increasing term plan can beat the effects of inflation by automatically increasing each year so the real value of your insurance is protected. Your costs will increase too.
