Select the plan that is right for you. You can pay this amount by making a single payment, or by paying monthly instalments to total the cash lump sum amount, over a period of time of your choice, up to 20 years.

How much is paid out?

We will pay the total sum of Contributions paid at the point of death. From the date all Contributions have been paid, we will pay the plan’s Cash Sum amount plus simple interest, at the rate of inflation (United Kingdom’s Consumer Price Index), capped at 0.2% per month (2.4% per annum), for every full subsequent calendar month of the plan until the point of death.

Each plan can have one recipient. You will need to take out a separate plan for each recipient. You can change the recipient at anytime.

Why should I do this now and not when I am older?

You could get better value for money by putting your plan in place now, fixing today’s prices.

Can I change my mind?

You have 14 days to change your mind from the date you entered the agreement. Your plan will continue if we don’t receive a cancellation notice within that time. If you do change your mind and don’t want the plan, we will give you your money back.

Can I cancel and cash-in my plan?

Yes. You can cash-in your plan at anytime and receive 70% of what you have paid in back.

If I choose to pay by instalments what happens if I stop paying them?

If any Contribution is not paid on the due date or within the 30 days grace allowed we will cancel your plan and repay to you 70% of what you have paid in back.

How does the plan pay out?

To request that the plan’s cash sum is paid out, your executor should call or email the support team. They will be asked for a death certificate. Once requested documents have been accepted, payment is made direct to your named recipient within 24 hours.
