What is over 50s life insurance?
Over 50s life insurance pays out a tax free lump sum on your death and can be paid to your family when the time comes. Any payment can be used to cover funeral costs which takes the financial strain off your family left behind. Policies are set up on a "whole of life" basis which means they are guaranteed to pay out on death no matter what age you die. It's also possible to take out extra cover to leave as an inheritance to your loved ones.

We offer a wide range of cover from a large panel of insurers, this means you are guaranteed to get the best deal available. All of the insurers on our panel are rated 5 stars by Defaqto who independently rate financial products, they are also all covered by the FSCS (Financial Services Compensation Scheme) which means in the unlikely event of your insurer going bust then your money is still safe.
As long as you are aged between 50-85 you are guaranteed to be accepted regardless of your current health. We do not need to ask you any health questions. Its quick and easy to setup your policy, this can be done in less than 5 minutes either online or over the phone. Your policy will pay out in full if you die after 1 or 2 years after your policy is taken out, if you die before the 1 or 2 year period then your premiums will be returned to your family + 50% extra which means you cant lose out.

We offer cover from a wide range of top UK insurers, this means we guarantee to get you the best deal in the market. In many cases we can secure your up to 30% more cover for the same price compared to insurers who advertise on TV. It really does pay to compare cover between providers, as you could secure a much larger payout for your family when the time comes.
I had been considering taking out cover to pay for my funeral for a while as I didn't want to leave my children with any financial burden. I decided to search online and came across Trade Shield who have been excellent every step of the way, they explained everything in detail and secured me a lump sum on my death for £10,000, this should be more than enough to cover all costs when i'm gone and hopefully a little extra.

Unfortunately I was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. I had never really thought about who would pay for my funeral but this is something we all need to face at some point. I decided to start looking into cover and found Trade Shield on google, they came back with a few quotes which were more competitive than both Sun Life and Legal & General, their process is quick and easy so I would be happy to recommend them Mr L Rutherford - Bolton
