Family Income Benefit
Family income benefit insurance is a type of term life insurance that will give regular financial support to the family of a policyholder if they die or are diagnosed with a terminal illness. AIG’s Family Income Benefit helps your clients secure an on-going income for their families. With monthly payouts, it eases the burden of bills, making budgeting more manageable for those left behind. If your client’s circumstances change, we make it easy for them to switch from a monthly benefit to a lump-sum payout during the claim.
Why choose AIG
With a monthly benefit paid from point of claim to the end of the policy term, this cover allows your clients to plan for the future, and the guaranteed income gives them the knowledge that monthly mortgage payments could be maintained, household bills could be taken care of or living expenses could be sorted when they’re no longer able to support their family.
Writing your client's policy into trust
Your clients are able to write their policies into trust, and we offer both simple and split 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.
