What does Legal & General life insurance cover?

  • You’ll be able to claim if you die or are diagnosed with a terminal illness (with a life expectancy of 12 less than 12 months) within the length of the policy.
  • You choose how much cover you need and how long you need it for.
  • Premiums are guaranteed and will not change unless you make changes to the policy.
  • Additional benefits are included at no extra cost, such as Free Life Cover and Accidental Death Benefit.
  • You have the option to add Critical Illness Cover at no extra cost when you take out a life insurance policy.   
 
 

Things you should know about Legal & General life insurance 

  • Life insurance is not a savings or investment product and has no cash value, unless you make a valid claim.
  • If you stop paying premiums when due, your policy will be cancelled and you won’t get anything back from it.
  • You won’t be covered within the first year of the policy if you die as a result of suicide or intentional and serious self-injury.
  • You won’t be covered if your terminal illness does not meet Legal & General’s definition. If your life insurance is to cover your mortgage, your policy may not completely pay off your outstanding mortgage unless you make sure your amount of cover is adjusted to match any new mortgage arrangements.
