Life or luxury?

How saving a few pounds here and there really could help make Life Cover more affordable.

One of the reasons people may cite for not buying Life Cover is that they can’t afford it and if you don’t need to claim then it could seem like an unnecessary expense.

However, Life Cover can provide you with the peace of mind that your family are financially protected should the worst happen to you. If you do have to claim, the financial payment provided could make a world of difference to your family.

The state does provide some help to bereaved families but it might not cover all your family’s costs. If you have a mortgage or outstanding debts, Life Cover could help your loved ones cope with any financial strain.

Possession or provision?

In the current climate, money is tight for many families and more of us are being affected by rising costs.

However, if we just slightly altered our daily routine and cut back on some of the smaller luxuries many of us take for granted, we could save money on what we don’t need so that we can focus on what we do.

There are several ways that you could save a few pounds here and there and possibly become slightly healthier in the process:

Whether you decide to cut back on some of those little luxuries or not, with John Lewis Life Cover you can choose a monthly or annual payment that suits you, based on how long you’d like cover for and the amount your family would need.

About John Lewis Life Cover

John Lewis Life Cover helps provide financial protection for your family should the worst happen to you. We offer cover options to suit your circumstances, including cover which pays a cash sum that stays the same throughout the cover period, and cover which reduces over time and is often used to help with a repayment mortgage.

With John Lewis Life Cover, depending on the type of cover or options you choose, your premiums are guaranteed to same the same as you get older, unless you change your cover term or amount. We also offer you the chance to waive your premiums for an additional amount if you can't work due to illness or injury for over three months, until you return to work, your 65th birthday or your cover ends.

Remember, inflation will reduce the spending power of any money paid out and you should review your protection arrangements on a regular basis to ensure that they are still appropriate. Life Cover has no cash-in value at anytime and if you stop paying your premiums or cancel your policy, your cover will also stop.

Please be aware that although we can talk through the different options with you, we can't give you financial advice. A professional financial adviser can help you decide whether a life cover plan is suitable for you. You may have to pay for this advice.
