What type of life insurance can you have under a relevant life policy?

I am a company director and have a mortgage and a family I want to protect with some life insurance. I spoke to my accountant and he mentioned relevant life cover, is it possible to use this to cover protect these risks?

Answered by Tom Conner

Relevant life insurance was primarily designed to provide small companies (those with less than 5 employees who are unable to obtain group quotes) take out a company paid life insurance policy in a tax efficient manner.

As a result relevant life cover should be used in a a similar manner providing a multiple of salary (often between 4 and 10 times gross salary) of life cover to said employees.

It has not been designed to directly protect any outstanding mortgage debt.

Ceiron King did an amazing job setting up my insurance. He was meticulous to all details and made sure everything was individually tailor made to suit my circumstances. When I had queries he was able to take on board any issues and find solutions quickly. Pleasant, easy to talk to, engaging, personable chap who effortlessly made me feel that I'd found the right firm. Highly recommended.
