For new customers who buy directly from Co-op Insurance Services. Offer ends 30 March 2020. Terms and conditions apply.
Co-op Life Cover has a variety of different features including:
We give you the option to take a payment holiday, once you've had your policy for 12 months. You can take two breaks of up to six months over the lifespan of the policy*.
The pay-out or monthly income could go to any of your dependents such as a partner, your children or anyone else who depends on you financially.
You pay a fixed amount each month, this could be as little as £7 per month. Monthly payments depend on amount, length, type of cover and your personal circumstances.
Terminal Illness Cover is included at no extra cost, meaning that we pay out early if you're diagnosed with a terminal illness that meets our definition.
Each cover type is suited to a particular situation, with the most common being level term cover.
Serious Illness Cover is designed to pay out an amount of money if you develop one of the illnesses we cover. You'll receive a set amount of money if you're diagnosed with any of the following illnesses:
The amount you’re covered for is called the serious illness pay-out. This can’t be less than £1,000 and the most we’ll cover you for depends on your age.
Life insurance is cover designed to pay out an amount of money if you pass away. It could also cover you if you develop a terminal illness and are expected to survive for less than 12 months.
The pay out or monthly income could go to any of your dependants such as a partner, your children or anyone else who depends on you financially.
The money can then go towards paying a mortgage, funeral costs, or any debts.
It will cover the important expenses you’d want to see taken care of once you’re gone.
Thinking about those costs and the people you might leave behind can be hard, but taking out life insurance is a key part of your financial planning, especially for people with dependants.
If the policyholder has died, please call us on 0345 268 6082^ to register a claim.
You should also call this number if you have developed a serious illness and have Serious Illness Cover.
We’ll then send out a claim form, which needs to be filled in and returned to us.
Once we’ve received the claim form, we may ask for more information. We won’t be able to pay a claim until we’ve received all the information we need. After we've received all the information we aim to pay claims within 3 working days.
Documents we may need to see include:
Depending on the claim, we may need to see other documents. But we’ll only ask for things that we reasonably need to approve the claim, such as the policyholder’s Will or other legal documents.
*A payment holiday can be taken any time after the 1st year. You can take a break of up to 6 months from making monthly payments and the policy will continue. You can take up to 2 payment holidays over the term of the policy, but only 1 can be taken in a 12 month period. You have to make up all of the missed payments at the end of the holiday or reduce the payment amount. If a claim is made during the payment holiday, the payout amount will be reduced by the unpaid monthly premiums.
