    People who are employees may have what are called “death-in-service” benefits from their workplace, typically equivalent to two to four years’ salary. (We recommend you check if you have this if you’re unsure).

    We will consider what life cover you already have from your employer and elsewhere. And then, provide a recommendation on any extra cover you may need.

    The basic type of life insurance is “level term assurance”, which pays out a fixed sum if you die during the specific term of the policy. Alternatively “Decreasing term assurance” pays out a decreasing sum and is often linked to a repayment-style mortgage. This plan for life insurance in Liverpool reduces over time to reflect the declining balance of the mortgage.
