Life Insurance Guide

Life insurance, for all the complex types of cover and policies, may simply be defined as a written contract between an individual or individuals and an insurance company, whereby the insurance company pays out (in return for premiums) in the event of a death or deaths.

Life insurance, or assurance, is a policy provided by an insurer that will pay the beneficiaries of the policy a lump sum or a series of instalments in the event of your death. Having a comprehensive life assurance policy gives you the knowledge that should you meet an untimely end your family will at least receive some kind of financial compensation. When it comes to different life insurance policies, there is a huge variety on offer in the UK, and getting a life insurance quote online has never been easier.

Some policies will guarantee to payout, whereas other policies may expire at a given time. You should choose cover to suit your requirements, and carefully inspect the wording of the policy to make sure that you choose the right one before getting a life insurance quote.
