What is life insurance?

Life insurance offers more than just reassurance and financial protection – it helps to protect a way of life for your loved ones if anything happens to you. They’d get a cash lump sum to spend however they’d like, covering funeral and mortgage costs, and enabling them to keep afloat.

We’ve teamed up with Legal & General to provide options to suit your needs.
