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

Drew Berry acted very professionally from start to finish. The advisors were very knowledgeable and helpful, and gave me superb guidance as to which cover would suit me best. Oliver who completed all the finer details and set up the policy was a great credit to the company, and I would like to thank him personally, and Drew Berry as a company for arranging cover to give me peace of mind. I would thoroughly recommend this company.
