Life insurance FAQs

Life can throw some tricky situations at you so we've got answers to common questions right here for you.

How much life insurance cover do I need?

To work out the right level of cover, you should consider your expenses, including your mortgage or rent, school fees, other debts, and living expenses.

A higher level of cover may make your premiums more expensive, but the right level of cover should mean that your family or other dependents can maintain their lifestyle without you. If you’re not sure how much cover you need, it is best to speak to a financial advisor.

The Life Wise website has an insurance calculator which can help you work out how much insurance you need.
