Care Cover with Whole of Life Insurance

AIG’s Care Cover with Whole of Life Insurance helps your clients make financial provisions for care in later life.

People increasingly require care to maintain some quality of life as they get older, which can be expensive. This product will pay out 75% of the sum assured to allow your clients to access the care they need if they meet the plan’s criteria.

If they pass away or are diagnosed with a terminal illness without needing that level of care, the policy will pay out the full sum assured. Only one payment will be made under Care Cover with Whole of Life Insurance (for care cover or death/terminal illness), and once it is made, the policy will end.

Why choose AIG

Care Cover Benefit

The insurance will pay a maximum of £300,000 for Care Cover Benefit. Clients can increase their sum assured until their 71st birthday, but the Care Cover Benefit cannot exceed £300,000. The Care Cover Benefit is not available as a standalone benefit and must incorporate the life cover.

Whole of Life Insurance

Whole of Life Insurance is also available without Care Cover - to find out more about whether this could be the right option for your clients, head to our dedicated product page.

Inheritance tax or legacy

As our Whole of Life Insurance doesn’t have a term, it can be suitable for dealing with the impact of IHT on the value of your clients’ estates. This option could also help your clients leave a legacy for their families or contribute towards their funeral costs.

Writing your client's policy into trust

Your clients are able to write their policies into trust, and we offer both discretionary and bare trust options. Making this legal arrangement ensures that money paid out goes straight to the people they want to benefit from it. It also could allow a quicker death claim payment compared to a policy not in trust and could exempt any pay out from IHT liabilities.

We cannot advise on whether putting any particular plan into a trust would be suitable for your client’s particular circumstances and would recommend that they take professional legal advice. For more information, read our guide to explain how trusts work for insurance policies.
