Why Choose the Aviva Guaranteed Lifelong Protection Plan
Pays a guaranteed cash sum when you die
If you are living in the UK and aged between 50 and 80, your application will be accepted
Premiums range from £7 to £50 a month
You are covered for the full cash sum after just 12 months - if you die within the first 12 months Aviva will refund all the premiums paid
You are covered immediately if you die as a result of an accident and if death occurs after the first 12 months, the cash sum paid out would be doubled
Your monthly payments are fixed and will never change
Payments stop when you reach 90 but you continue to be fully covered for life
Things to consider
Unless you die as a result of an accident, you are not covered for the first 12 months – instead your premiums would be refunded to your estate.
As the cash sum is fixed, inflation will reduce its value over time.
There is a chance you could pay more in premiums than the plan pays out. It all depends on how long you live.
As the cash sum normally forms part of your estate, it may be subject to inheritance tax.
If you stop paying your premiums before your 90th birthday, your life cover would stop and no money would be paid out.
