Life insurance

In association with Zurich we are pleased to be able to introduce Life insurance. Life insurance (sometimes called life cover) is all about making sure your dependants have the money they need if you were no longer around.

Simply choose whether you want life cover only, or life cover with critical illness, when you get a quote.


Why do I need life insurance?

Life insurance provides financial help for your family when you die and they can no longer rely on your income. It sounds a little morbid, but you wouldn't leave your home uninsured, or drive your car without insurance, so why wouldn't you financially protect your family too?

It can be used to help pay off debts, a mortgage or your funeral expenses (if you haven't already got this covered). It can even be used for day to day expenses - anything the money is needed for.

Why so many people choose Zurich Life Insurance...

  • Peace of mind from £5 a month - Affordable life cover to protect you and your family.
  • You’re in safe hands - Part of one of the world’s largest insurers.
  • Zurich do the right thing - In 2022, they paid out 98% of all their Life Insurance claims and 91% of all their Critical Illness claims.
  • They’re there for you - Access to Zurich Support Service for you and your family, provided by one of Zurich’s partners.
