You may already know how important it is to protect your home and its contents. But it’s also important to think about how you might pay for your mortgage if the worst happens.
That’s how life insurance and critical illness cover can help. It gives you peace of mind that if you were to die or become too ill to work, the money your policy pays out could help cover your mortgage.
Life insurance pays out a cash lump sum if you die and critical illness cover pays out a cash lump sum if you are diagnosed with an illness covered by your policy before it ends. It’s designed to help you and your loved ones cope financially if something happens to you.
When you apply for your policy, you can choose to be covered by life insurance, critical illness cover, or both. You will then select the size of the cash lump sum and how long you want to have this cover.
You’ll pay the same 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.
Make sure you can pay each month on time, or your cover will stop and you’ll get nothing back.
We can offer level or decreasing cover for both life insurance and critical illness cover. Here’s what they mean:
Scottish Widows protection products have no cash-in value at any time. So if the policy ends without a claim, you won't get any money back. If you don't make payments on time, your cover will stop, your policy will end and you'll get nothing back.

This kind of insurance covers two people, but if only pays out once. So if one person dies before the policy ends, the money paid out will go to the other person. Then the cover will end.
The policy will only pay out when a claim is made. So for life insurance, it only pays out if you die before your policy ends. For critical illness cover, it only pays out if you are diagnosed with an illness covered by your policy.
No. Your policy only pays out if a claim needs to be made. If your policy ends without a claim, then your cover will end and you won’t get money back.
Make sure you pay each month on time, or your cover will stop and you’ll get nothing back.
