How much is the cost of life insurance?

The cost of life insurance depends on multiple factors, some of which we have listed below:

1. How much cover you require
2. How long you want it for
3. Your age
4. Your sex
5. Your occupation
6. Your medical history
7. Your smoking habits
8. Current state of health

All of these factors can affect the cost of life insurance.

How much life cover do I need?

This will depend upon your personal circumstances and it is something that you should discuss with your FCA authorised adviser.

As a rule of thumb, the loss of a partner will result in a fall of approximately 30% in the expenditure of a family. You should be looking at cover of about five to ten times your annual salary.

If you are the breadwinner, you may want to keep your family in something like the style to which they have become accustomed.

If you are a carer, you may want to provide cash for professionals to take over because you are not around.

How long should I be covered for?

It is impossible to provide a definitive answer to you as much will depend on your individual circumstances. Things you may wish to consider include how long your savings will provide for you and your family and how long before your dependants are old enough to look after themselves.

If you are looking to cover the cost of you mortgage repayment, you will want to cover the amount of the outstanding debt on your mortgage up until such a time as the debt is paid off.

There may be other considerations which you should discuss with an FCA authorised adviser.

What type of mortgage cover do I need?

An FCA authorised adviser will be able to tell you what type of policy is right for you. If your mortgage is a repayment mortgage, Decreasing Term Assurance may be the right policy for you.

If you have an interest-only mortgage, a level term policy may be more appropriate.
