Frequently Asked Questions
Why choose life insurance?
Life insurance is a contract between you and the life insurance provider that enables you to leave behind money for your family when you die. This can be used to support them for a number of years, to replace lost income, or to pay off a large debt such as your mortgage. You pay a monthly premium for life insurance. Your age, health, lifestyle and how much cover you need, as well as the type of policy you have, will all determine how much you pay.
At Best insurance we are transparent and here to make the whole process simple and ensure you get the best cover to protect your loved ones
What is life insurance and how does it work?
Life insurance helps give your family financial protection should you pass away within the policy term. Life insurance is usually only there for you when you’re gone to help protect your loved one. It lets you leave a lump sum behind – helping your loved ones maintain their living standards or pay mortgage costs.
Do I need life insurance?
Take the time to consider how much money your loved ones might need to maintain their living standards if you were to pass away. This might include costs such as bills, mortgage repayments, school fees and any other debts you might need to repay
What are the different types of life insurance?
The most basic type of life insurance is called term life insurance, where you choose the amount you want to be insured for and the period for which you want cover. If you die within the term, the policy pays out to your beneficiaries. If you don’t die during the term, the policy doesn’t pay out and the premiums you’ve paid are not returned to you.
There are three main types of term assurance to consider – level-term, decreasing-term and increasing-term insurance. Sometimes a combination of the two is the best answer.
Level term: pays out a lump sum if you die within the specified term. The amount you’re covered for remains level throughout the term – hence the name.
Decreasing term: the amount you’re covered for decreases over the term of the policy. These policies are often used to cover a debt that reduces over time, such as a repayment mortgage.
Increasing term: the amount you’re covered for increases over the term of the policy, to keep up with inflation so that your family can make the most of your payment.
