Does your family rely on your income? Protect their future with level-term life insurance.

What is level term life insurance?

Essentially, level-term insurance is a life insurance protection plan. In the event of your death, it provides financial cover to your beneficiary. It provides financial stability for your family in the case of your death. While it's a macabre subject - no one likes to plan for their death - it is important to prepare for the future, should the worst happen.

How does level-term life insurance work?

Should you die during the policy's term, the insurance company will pay your beneficiary a fixed sum of money. In return, you will provide monthly payments to the insurer for the duration of the term.

Term insurance is often arranged when taking out a residential mortgage. It pays a cash sum which can be used to repay an outstanding mortgage and leave money for the beneficiaries to live off. Level-term insurance ensures the sum insured remains the same throughout the term. Therefore, the benefit which exceeds the mortgage can be used as you wish.

Level-term insurance costs are calculated using life expectancy; therefore, the older you get, the more a policy costs. As a result, it's important to choose a suitable term length early on. Should you outlive your policy term, the annual cost for a new one could be costly; this is because your older age and health conditions will be considered during the insurance calculation.
