How to use the LV= Trustbuilder

The LV= Trustbuilder is a simple and straightforward way to put your protection policies into trust. It'll guide you through the steps of setting up a trust.

  • We'll ask you a few questions about you and who you want your life cover to be paid out to when you die.
  • You can then complete the form online and it'll create the trust deed for you to print out.
  • You'll then need to sign the deed and have your signatures witnessed by someone who is independent (not a trustee, beneficiary or anyone involved with the trust) and post it to us using the freepost address.

You can only put our LV= life protection products in trust. Once you've put your policy in trust, you can't change your mind at a later date.

Before you complete and sign the deed, make sure you've considered if placing your policy into trust is the right thing to do. If you're in any doubt, you should speak to a solicitor or you can call us on 0800 678 1906. For TextDirect dial 18001 first.

Make sure you read the documents below to understand trusts and trustees before you start the LV= Trustbuilder.
