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.

To make sure it is set-up correctly it is best to speak to a financial adviser, if you would like us to help please do not hesitate to call us on 0208 432 733 or email us at help@drewberry.co.uk

Rauri was easy to talk to. Explained everything really well. Took prompt action when requested and was in touch when he said he would be without being pushy.

Josh made a complicated process easy and I was kept informed throughout. I will be recommending Drewberry to every one who asks and even those who don't.

I had a short time to ensure I was covered appropriately due to change of circumstances and house move. I required a number of insurance policies for my new situation. I contacted Drewberry Insurance and found that they understood all of my needs and the best way to filter and sift appropriate insurers. They clearly understood the process...made everything very easy online and via telephone and always did as they said they would by actioning everything as and when requested. This took the time and confusion away from becoming insured. Their interaction and communication and explanation of all processes ensured I understood each stage of the process. Will recommend their services to anyone seeking insurance.
