  • What is life insurance?

    Life insurance is a type of insurance policy that can protect the people you care about most if you become terminally ill or pass away.

    It can provide peace of mind for you and your family by taking care of your financial commitments if the worst should happen and it can offer some relief during periods of uncertainty.

  • Do you need it?

    If you have children, or a spouse, or anyone else who depends on you financially then life insurance is probably for you. Especially if you don't have enough savings to cover their living expenses day to day.

    The benefit amount can be used to manage outstanding debts, mortgages or loans that they'd otherwise have to pay without your income.

  • Why should you get life insurance?

    Life has a nasty habit of throwing curve balls when you least expect it. The sad truth is that over 23,600 parents with children under the age of 18 pass away every year in the UK.

    Nikki is 35 and married with 2 young girls. She never thought she'd have a heart attack, but was relieved to have life insurance and critical illness cover to protect her family when she did in 2019. Watch her message.

  • How much is life insurance?

    Life insurance starts from as little as £5.00 per month.* The amount you'll pay is dependant on several factors including your age, health and lifestyle.

    You should begin by considering how much financial support your family or loved ones may need if you were to pass away such as outstanding debts, mortgages or loans. That way you can determine which provider and product is best for you.

  • Is it worth it?

    The knowledge that your family will be taken care of financially if the worst should happen makes life insurance invaluable for most people.

    It can give you peace of mind knowing your loved ones will receive a lump sum to help cover the financial burden if anything does happen to you and it can bring them some relief during a difficult time too.

    It's not easy to put a price on peace of mind, but many of our customers agree it's worth it.

    Top Tip: It's important to review your protection needs with an advisor every 2 years or whenever a significant life event occurs, such as moving home or the birth or a child. This ensures you aren't under-insuring yourself or overpaying for your policy.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to choose the right life insurance?

There's no 'one size fits all' when it comes to choosing the best product for you. Every policy is unique and based on your individual circumstances.

Choosing the right cover will mean taking your age, health, finances and other factors into consideration, which can sometimes be complicated and time-consuming.

The simplest and fastest way to find the right type of life insurance for you and your specific situation is to speak with an expert who can point you in the right direction. Especially as there are some pitfalls to avoid and it's not worth the risk of getting the wrong policy and regretting it later.

For example, selecting a policy that has no cash in value or potentially paying your premiums throughout the term but if you survive the plan, the policy pays out nothing and you don't get your premiums back.

These sorts of things can be easily avoided when you speak with a life insurance expert at Caspian who can give you free tailored advice and support.

How do I get life insurance?

Life insurance starts with a quote from an insurance broker, like Caspian, who'll compare the top life insurance providers to get you the best deal.

In reality, no matter whether you go online or over the phone, chances are you'll end up with a similar set of life insurance offers, from the same group of insurance providers.

That's because your personal circumstances won't (or at least shouldn't) change, regardless of who you speak to about insurance and policies are quite competitive.

However, a good insurance broker should give you the right advice on which policy you need and how much you should be paying for your cover. As well as answering any questions you may have to help you make an informed decision.
