Who Are The Best Relevant Life Insurance Providers?

Given the tax benefits of taking out Relevant Life Insurance over a personal policy I wanted to know which UK providers offer this product?

Question asked by Keith Brannigan

Most of the insurers offering personal Life Insurance (that an individual pays for themselves, from a personal bank account) also offer Relevant Life Cover.

Below is a list of the top UK Relevant Life insurers. We’ve also included the additional benefits each provider offers alongside the policy to help you make an informed decision.

However, to benefit from the favourable tax position it is very important to structure Relevant Life Insurance in the correct way making sure the appropriate trust is in place from the outset.

If you need help setting up your cover please do not hesitate to popo us a call on 02084327333.

The above nine insurers represent a sample of the top providers in the UK Relevant Life Insurance market. However, choosing your insurer is just the start. The next step is getting some quotes.

While our Relevant Life Insurance cost calculator offers instant online quotes, don’t forget that you need to set up the policy correctly to take advantage of the tax breaks.

For example, you’ll need to write the policy into trust at the outset. You’ll also need to ensure you don’t fall foul of any of HMRC’s Relevant Life Insurance rules.

With this in mind, we therefore feel that it’s best to have one of our experts support you through the process. This is entirely free of charge and will ensure you’re putting the cover in place correctly.

We’ll help arrange your insurance from start to finish, tying up all the loose ends to ensure you have the cover you need going forward.
