Life insurance could pay out a cash lump sum if you die before your policy ends. It's designed to help your loved ones cope financially when you can't be there.
When you apply for your policy, you’ll select the size of the cash lump sum that will get paid out when a claim is made. You’ll also select how long you want to be covered.
You’ll pay a fixed amount each month by Direct Debit, until your policy ends. Your policy doesn’t have a cash-in value. This means that if it ends without a claim, then you won’t get the money back.
Scottish Widows might not be able to help if you have a pre-existing condition. But if they can't offer you a policy, they'll let you know how to get more help or advice.
We want to make sure you get the help you need.

Life insurance costs vary according to how much cover you need, your age, and other factors such as your health history.
The price will also change based on your age, health and lifestyle. You’ll pay a fixed amount each month until your policy ends.
No. Your policy only pays out if you make a successful claim. If your policy ends without a successful claim, then your cover will end, and you won’t get any money back.
Make sure you pay each month on time, or your cover could stop.
