How much cover do I need?

How much life insurance you need will depend on what you want it to be used for.  

Over 50 Life Insurance can be a way to help cover your funeral, so that the financial burden doesn’t fall on your family. If you intend your payout to be used for this, you should consider what kind of funeral you would like, how much that may cost and how much you want to contribute towards it.  

You might prefer that your loved ones use the payout to help cover household bills and other expenses. If so, it would be helpful to think about what financial obligations they could have after you’re gone and how far the money would stretch.   

Importantly, you need to think about your ability to pay your monthly premiums now and in the future. If you’re still unsure how much cover you need, our friendly UK based team are on hand to help you explore your options. You can also learn more about what over 50 Life Insurance could do for you in our helpful guide.

Things to consider

  • Inflation may reduce value of cover. If you choose the Increasing Benefit Option, this can help to protect your policy from the effects of inflation
  • You may pay in more than we pay out
  • If you stop your monthly payments, you will get nothing back

FREE £300 Funeral Benefit Option with your policy

We've partnered with Golden Charter, one of the UK's largest networks of funeral directors, to help make things simple for your loved ones when you pass away. When you take out British Seniors Over 50 Life Insurance, you will also have the option to take out a Funeral Benefit Option which gives a FREE £300 contribution towards the cost of your funeral.   

So, for example, if your benefit amount is £5,000 and you add the Funeral Benefit Option to your policy, you will have £5,300 in total towards the cost of your funeral. Any excess benefit amount not used for your funeral will be paid to your estate or next of kin. If you choose an unattended cremation, please note that the £300 contribution will not apply.2
