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 is guaranteed to be accepted
  • Premiums range from £5 to £100 a month depending on your age
  • Your monthly payments are fixed and will never change
  • Payments stop after 30 years or when you reach 90 but you continue to be fully covered for life
  • 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
  • Cover includes access to health and wellbeing services
  • £120 gift card for a limited time

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.
