What happens if the cover term has finished on my Life Insurance policy?

When the cover term has finished, the policy ends and you won't get anything back.

We won’t pay a claim if the term of the policy has finished or if the policy has been cancelled. For example, if a life insurance policy is taken out to cover the length of a mortgage and the person holding the policy dies after the term has finished.
