Life Insurance

Our life insurance is designed to support your family financially when you’re no longer there for them. The cover will pay out after your death, or if you’re diagnosed with a terminal illness. This can be a difficult thing to talk (or even think) about, but it really needs to get sorted.

Our products

We make choosing the right plan simple with these four options:

Term Insurance

Term insurance is a type of life cover that lasts for a fixed period of time (known as a ‘term’) – the payment will be made all in one go. We protect you against death and terminal illness until the last day of your policy.

Family Income Benefit

Family income benefit is a cost effective way to help your loved ones pay the bills when you are no longer there to help them yourself. It covers you for the same scenarios as our life term insurance, but pays out in monthly instalments instead. It could be a useful option when it comes to things like budgeting.

Life Start

With Life Start, you’ll be covered for the same scenarios as our life term insurance but we’ll make it easier for you to pay for it. Your premiums (the amount you pay every month) are kept lower at the beginning than standard life cover. These premiums then increase over time. Life Start helps you get insured on a lower budget, but it could eventually cost more than a typical plan, depending on how long you keep the cover for (but we’ll let you know how much your premiums will increase every year). You always have the option to not accept an increase, but if this is the case, the amount you could be paid will be reduced to reflect this. We recommend reviewing your cover every few years to make sure it’s still right for you.

Instant Life Insurance

Instant Life Insurance makes getting insured even quicker. There are fewer questions than usual for this type of cover. In fact, all you need to do is complete an online application that takes around eight minutes - we don’t need any medical evidence either. After you’ve answered the questions and submitted your response, we’ll let you know straight away if we can insure you.

Writing your policy into trust

You are able to write your policies into trust, and we provide adaptable specimen trust documents for use. Making this legal arrangement could ensure that money paid out for a claim goes straight to the people you want to benefit from the trust. It also could allow a quicker death claim payment compared to a policy not in trust and could mitigate Inheritance Tax liabilities.

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

Waiver of Premium

We offer an extra called Waiver of Premium. For just a small additional amount, this add-on means that we can pay your premiums if you can’t work due to injury or illness. It’s that simple.

Smart Health

Meet Smart Health - the health and wellbeing service from AIG, designed with your physical and mental wellbeing in mind. Whether you need to talk to a registered UK GP or want to get some hints and tips from a nutritionist, you’ll be able to chat to a professional 24/7, 365 days a year and from anywhere in the world - all at no additional cost. There’s no cap on how many times you can use it, and your partner and any children up to age 21 can take advantage too.


Smart Health is provided to AIG Life Limited customers by Teladoc Health. We want to let you know that these services are non-contractual, which means they don’t form part of the insurance contract with us. If our partnership with Teladoc Health ends, these services could be changed or withdrawn in the future.

Winston's Wish is a national charity that is accessible to anyone regardless of your insurance policy. The service is available even if your policy ends.

Waiver of Premium is available for clients who purchased their policy when aged 54 and below. This cover ends when the person reaches their 70th birthday.
