When Should You Get Over 50 Life Insurance?

Hitting 50 is a major milestone in a person’s life. Oddly enough, while many of us spend our 30s and 40s dreading the big 5-0, its rarely as daunting as it seems.

That's because many of us reach 50 feeling just as active and restless as we did decades before. It turns out that 50 isn’t as old as we were led to believe. We’re more relaxed in our skin, we have more time to spare, and many of us will be more secure financially.

By the age of 50, we're a lot wiser, particularly when it comes to our finances. But here's something you might not know; the sooner you secure life insurance, the better. In fact, the earlier you start, the bigger your benefit amount will be. You’ll still get a competitive deal in your 50s, but premium rates start to climb with every year, so sooner is better.

If you're worried about applying, there’s no need to be - one of the best things about Over 50 Life Insurance is that it's a guaranteed policy. This means that if you’re a UK resident aged 50 to 80, you’re guaranteed acceptance with no blood tests or medicals required. In fact, all we need to know is whether or not you are a smoker.

Get peace of mind

If you’re nearing your 50s, you may have spent most of your adult life taking care of your loved ones, and that’s something to be proud of. With retirement on the horizon, or kids ready to fly the nest, you can start getting ready to enjoy the home you’ve made for yourself.

Did you know that the average cost of a funeral in the UK is £4,515¹. This kind of expense is challenging to settle at the best of times, but imagine your family having to cope with it during a time when emotions are running high. 

Many hardworking families cannot afford a funeral. This leaves them dealing with the loss of a loved one with the added burden of financial disarray. Wouldn't you feel better knowing that you've made arrangements to help with funeral costs and outstanding bills? That's the peace of mind life insurance could give you.

Life doesn't always go to plan, and the last thing you want is for your family to have to face a future without you. So, there's one final item to settle before you put your feet up.

It only takes a few minutes to arrange Over 50 life cover. You can arrange it online or over the phone and once you’re set, you’ll be covered for life as long as you keep up your premiums. So, you’ll have peace of mind for the years ahead knowing that if the worst were to happen, your family will receive financial support.
