Designed to pay out a fixed cash lump sum to your loved ones if you die during the length of the policy. This can be used to help protect your mortgage or your family’s lifestyle. You choose the amount of life cover you need and how long you need it for, and you can pay your premiums monthly or annually. Premiums start from £6 per month and are fixed premiums so they won’t go up, unless you alter your policy. The maximum age for buying this policy is 77 years old. At no extra cost TSB include additional benefits which give you even more protection and offer you extra peace of mind, such as Terminal Illness Cover and Accidental Death Benefit. Terminal Illness Cover could pay out the full amount of cover when life expectancy is less than 12 months.
