Brexit and your membership, policy or product

Understand how Brexit will affect your membership, policy or product

your policy

Let's start with Brexit and your policies...

Brexit is a changing situation but don't worry, we're keeping a close eye on it. For regular news and updates, keep checking this page. 

We believe that most of our policies won’t be affected by Brexit. But we’ve included more information below to help you get started.
 

If you live in the UK

If you have one of our life insurance, pensions, retirement policies or equity release loans and permanently live in the UK...

We don’t believe your policy (and the service you receive from us) will be affected by Brexit. 

However, it’s important to remember where your policy includes investments of any nature, they carry a risk and values can go down as well as up. Political uncertainty (as well as other factors) can impact how your investment performs. You should speak to your financial adviser if you’re worried about the impact of Brexit on any policies you have with us.

If you live or plan to move to an EU country

If you have one of our life insurance products, pension or retirement policies or equity release loans and have since moved, or plan on moving to an EU country

A small number of customers with a life insurance product, pension or retirement policy live within the European Union / European Economic Area or plan on moving here in the future. Our policy for all customers living overseas is for them to have a UK bank account to pay premiums and receive policy proceeds in Sterling. Our Equity Release loans are only available to UK resident borrowers who are occupying their property in England, Scotland or Wales.

Although the outcome of Britain leaving the EU and the precise impact is still unknown, if you live in the EU you’ll shortly receive a letter from us explaining we do not believe Brexit will affect your policy. The letter also explains we will carry on monitoring the situation closely and plan for all potential outcomes while continuing to deliver the same high level of service you expect from us.

We appreciate these are uncertain times, but it’s important to speak to a financial adviser before making any decisions about your policy (including taking out new policies in the future).
