You may not think you need as much life insurance once you’ve retired or paid off your mortgage. But the need for cover doesn’t end. Whole-of-life insurance is cover that will pay out when you die, no matter what your age is.
Critical illness cover can help minimise the financial impact on you and your family if you become critically ill. Being diagnosed with a critical illness can affect anyone at any age, strike at any time and can turn lives upside down.
While the financial benefits are usually the main reason why people choose to protect their income, income protection products frequently come with a wide range of added value support. This type of support – for both the employer and employee – usually comes as part of the policy and doesn’t cost anything extra.
Covering the cost of your care depends on several unknowns
With the UK’s population ageing, more people will be living with long-term care needs. This means that as we approach old age, it becomes more likely that we may need day-to-day help with certain activities like washing and dressing, or assistance with household tasks, such as cleaning and cooking. This type of support, along with some types of medical assistance, is called long-term care.
Have you decided what happens to your money, property and possessions after your death?
Since the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), the number of people seeking to write new Wills has risen by over 30%, according to The Law Society. Understandably, the current situation is causing angst among people, particularly elderly and vulnerable clients who are currently self-isolating.
Peace of mind that there is someone you trust to look after your affairs
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that allows you to appoint one or more people to make decisions on your behalf during your lifetime. The people you appoint to manage your affairs are called the ‘attorneys’.
Passing assets tax-efficiently to the next generation
Making provision for your loved ones after you have gone is an essential part of managing your estate and assets. Death and taxes can’t be avoided, but with careful planning you can pass on your assets to your loved ones so that they can benefit from them in the most tax-efficient way.
