Free Funeral Benefit Option
50 Plus Funeral Benefit Option - A free option that could increase your life cover by 10%.
You agree for the cash sum to be paid directly to Dignity, one of the UK’s leading funeral service providers and as a thank you for choosing the LV funeral benefit option get 10% more life cover (up to the maximum free life cover level of £1,000).
When the time comes, the money is used to help pay for Dignity funeral services and in addition, your family will receive advice and guidance on all aspects of the funeral.
Depending on the cash sum paid out, your family may still need to pay some of the funeral costs when the time comes. Alternatively, if the life cover paid out is greater than the funeral costs, any remaining balance will be paid to your estate.
Things to consider
- Depending on how long you live, there is a chance you could pay more in premiums than the cash sum paid out.
- You need to continue paying your premiums until your 90th birthday. If you stop paying your monthly payments, your cover will cease and you won’t get anything back.
- Your premiums and the amount of cover paid out are fixed; therefore inflation will reduce the value of the cover.
- If you die in the initial 12 month period, the full cash sum would not be paid out however all premiums paid would be refunded.
- Payment is usually made to the estate and therefore could be subject to inheritance tax.
- There is a maximum cover level of £25,000
In addition to the LV over 50 life insurance plan, LV= also provide guaranteed life cover for ASDA known as ‘Asda Over 50s Life Cover’.
The Asda over 50 plan is very similar to the LV branded plan with cover starting from £5 a month. There is a capped option which starts from £15 a month that ensures you never pay more in premiums than the cash sum paid out but levels of cover do tend to be lower.
