Quite often you hear ‘it could never happen to me’ or ‘I’ll sort it out later’. Well the old maxim of “failing to plan is planning to fail” is no better suited to the ignoring of crucial decisions on protection.
What is it?
As the name implies, this type of life assurance pays out when you die, whenever that may be. It is usually, but not always, a more expensive option than term assurance simply because the life assurance company knows that it will definitely pay out at some point.
Many of these plans offer some form of investment content and so can be more flexible than term assurance and can acquire cash in values.
Who is it for?
This type of plan is designed for those who want to leave a lump sum in the event of their death, whenever it may occur.
It can be used to pay off debts that will not be repaid during your lifetime.
For those who want to leave a lump sum to pay a potential inheritance tax liability. As Professional Mortgage & Protection Advisors we can help you find the plan that best meets your requirements.
THE FINANCIAL CONDUCT AUTHORITY DOES NOT REGULATE INHERITANCE TAX PLANNING ADVICE & ALTHOUGH A WHOLE OF LIFE PLAN CAN AQUIRE A CASH VALUE ITS PRIMARY PURPOSE IS TO PROVIDE FINANCIAL PROTECTION AND SHOULD NOT BE SEEN AS AN INVESTMENT VEHICLE.
