Military life insurance
A military life – whether it’s in the British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Marines or RAF – is full of challenge and variety. Not many people do a more important or fulfilling job – seeing the world while keeping Britain safe.
Armed forces personnel love excitement. But they also love the times when they can come home and switch off, spend time with loved ones, have a beer with friends – or raise a family.
It’s not a comfortable thought, but have you considered what would happen to those back home if you lost your life during military service? How would your partner keep up payments or debts, if she (or he) were left alone?
Military life insurance, designed especially for those serving in the Army, Navy, Royal Marines or RAF, is a great way to protect your family from the financial worries they could face if you were no longer around – such as household bills, childcare, university fees and mortgage payments.
Who is military life insurance for?
Military life insurance is advisable for every person serving in the British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Marines or RAF.
There are different types of armed services life insurance available, depending on your individual needs. As ex-military ourselves, we understand the special requirements of HM Armed Forces personnel and can help you find the right policy.
You could, for example, be a new recruit on a starting salary. Your military life insurance policy will have to take into account possible decades of service – but on the other hand, since your financial obligations will be fewer, your premium (the amount you pay each month or year) could be quite low.
Or you could be a British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Marines or RAF officer with years of active service behind you. While your salary will be higher and your financial obligations may be greater, your policy will also take into account the fact that the years of payout will be fewer.
Whether you’re starting out or already well into your career, an Army, Navy or RAF, a life insurance policy could cost you as little as £6 a month. If you’d like a personalised quote, or to find out more about the policies we offer, call us now on 0333 772 0613.
What does a military life insurance policy cover?
In the sad event that your family are left without you, military life insurance will help them to cope financially. Do you part-own a house or pay rent? Have you got outstanding payments on a car or mortgage? Do you have kids who need clothes, toys, books and holidays?
A good military life insurance policy will take into account all the financial responsibilities of your life and make sure that they’re covered in the event of your death. This could cover expenses such as:
- Mortgage and other repayments
- Credit card debt
- School and university fees
- Household bills
- Childcare costs
Military life insurance can also be extended to include critical illness and serious illness, which will cover you for the same expenses if you find yourself unable to work.
