Which type of life insurance is right for me?

What is life time cover?

Life time insurance or whole of life cover, as you’d expect is an insurance plan that lasts for a whole lifetime and is not limited by a specific term. If you pass away, this policy will provide a lump sum payment to your family that can be used for inheritance planning.

Paving the way for the next generation is part and parcel of our progress through life. As we get older, we wish for the success and prosperity of our children and grandchildren. It is important to plan for the future and ensure your family is taken care of.

How does it work?

When you take out a whole of life insurance plan, we’ll help determine the level of cover you need. It will depend on your circumstances and those dependent on you. You will then pay a set amount on a regular basis which funds your investment that in turn reduces your cost of insurance.

Term vs whole of life

There are two types of life insurance, term insurance covers you for a certain amount of time specified by you while whole of life insurance lasts until you die.

With term life insurance you are taking out a policy for a specific period of time, for example 10, 20 or 30 years, and this is known as the ‘term’. Benefits are paid only if you die during the term of the policy.

Whole of life insurance cover does not have a fixed term and so, covers you for life. If you pass away a lump sum payment will be paid to your family.


The decision to choose whole of life or term insurance cover, is a personal one. In making your decision, you should consider your need for insurance and how long you want your insurance cover to be in place. It’s a good idea to think first about your financial objectives.
