Answer

Our Life Insurance also is known as 'term insurance' because it runs for a specific length of time, specifically between 5 and 45 years.

Other types of life insurance will keep running as long as the premiums are being paid, potentially for the rest of the customer's life. This is known as 'whole-of-life assurance'.

Our Over 50 Life Insurance is an example of a whole-of-life assurance and can be used to pay for a funeral or unpaid bills.

There are other types of whole-of-life assurance. Our protection experts can help.
