What is life insurance?
Life insurance is a type of insurance contract which pays out a lump sum to your dependants should you pass away or be diagnosed with a terminal illness during the term of the contract, in order to provide for them after you’re not around. The cost of a policy is determined by a number of factors including your age, health and lifestyle.
Life insurance can provide peace of mind that your loved ones would be financially protected if you were to pass away. The lump-sum payout they would receive can be used to pay vital bills like a mortgage or rent, or to help with the cost of bringing up children.
