ASDA Over 50s life insurance

Over 50s life insurance is for people who are between 50 and 80 years old. There are some benefits which are provided which can be very convenient for possible clients. These include: guaranteed no medical acceptance benefit or option to never pay out more than you get out. First is convenient as each UK resident who are between 50 and 80 years old will get guaranteed acceptance while the second one guarantees that the person will not pay amount of  premiums higher than the cash sum his dependents will get in case of his death. However, with second benefit premiums start from £14.99 a month while without it, it is possible to get insurance policy with premiums as low as £5 a month.

Moreover, fixed payments benefit is offered which guarantees that payments will never go up. “ASDA” also offers guaranteed lump cash sum and full cover after one year benefits. It is important to remember that if full cover after one year benefit is chosen than in the first 12 months the person is not covered and risks that his dependents will get nothing.

Instant life cover

Instant life cover is a very convenient plan especially for those who have some medical conditions (in some cases the policy will not pay out). It requires no medical check-up and offers guaranteed acceptance to the ones aged 17-50. It is possible to choose three sizes of premiums: £5, £10 or £15 a month. It is easy to be accepted into this insurance program as in some cases it is possible to have a valid contract within 5 minutes of request by filling online application.

However, there are some serious things that should be taken into account. This policy will not make a pay out because of death of some pre-existing conditions (heart condition, HIV, terminal illness, stroke, cancer and AIDS). Moreover, the person will not be paid out if he has diabetes and dies because of heart attack or stroke and in case of suicide within first 12 months of the insurance policy. Furthermore, the same happens if the person has drug or alcohol abuse in his medical history and there are some exclusions about which questions must be asked before taking out the insurance policy if the person is a member of HM Armed Forces.
