Whole of Life Cover


Why Whole of Life Cover?

Whole of Life Cover provides on-going protection for the entirety of your client’s life. Provided your clients continue to pay their premiums until the end of their plan and the claim is valid, Whole of Life Cover will pay out a lump sum when they pass away. This allows your client to ensure they leave something behind for their loved ones.

An important part of helping your clients’ plan their future is to help them understand what they’re able to leave behind. When your client has the appropriate level of cover in place, their Whole of Life Cover can be used to insure against any inheritance tax your client’s family may have to pay on their estate.

If your client has no inheritance tax to pay on an estate, the lump sum could help their family in other ways for instance, it could help towards funeral costs and other immediate expenses. Lots of people want to leave something for their family to enjoy.

So, the lump sum could just be a gift for your client’s loved ones. Their children could use it to pay off their mortgage – or put it towards the cost of their grandchildren’s education.

About Whole of Life Cover

Your clients can increase their cover as their needs change. If, for example, inheritance tax rules change or your client’s estate goes up in value, they can increase their cover without having to give us any more information about their health.

When your clients add Optimiser to their plan, they’ll get access to the Platinum rate of their monthly premiums then, when they engage in The Vitality Programme, they’ll have the opportunity to keep their monthly premiums low.
