HUSBAND & WIFE - LIFE INSURANCE QUOTES
If you are recently married or been together for a while as Husband & Wife - you probably have other things on your mind than thinking about getting a Life Insurance policy. However, having loving responsibilities means you should still consider looking at the peace of mind Life Insurance or Critical Illness will do to help protect each other, a family if you have one or mortgage.
Naturally, not every Husband & Wife is the same when looking at life insurance risks. One partner may have health issues but UK Insurers may consider this to be acceptable at their standard rates, especially if it doesn’t vastly impact your usual daily activities of living.
Conversely, if one of you do have to take any stronger medications - then insurers may consider a premium increase likely on joint married life insurance policy. This cost increase could still be less than you think. This can also happen if this may have a potential reduction sadly on one of your life expectancy risk, or other combination of medical health risks factors that insurers are not willing to cover at standard terms.
Can I buy a joint Life Insurance Policy for my Husband or Wife ?
Yes - UK Insurance rules state there must be an insurable interest - so between a husband & wife it is Ok to arrange a life insurance policy. The Husband or Wife can always arrange a single policy for themselves. Also both parties must consent to this arrangement.
Can I get a Life Insurance on my Husband or Wife without them knowing ?
No - both parties must consent to this arrangement ie; you cannot just apply on their behalf without their knowledge.
Can I put my Husband or Wife on my current Life Insurance Policy ?
As above - UK Insurance rules state there must be an insurable interest between yourselves so as married - you can add them to your life insurance policy
Can a Husband or Wife be a Life Insurance Beneficiary ?
Yes they can - if you wish to. Either they can own your life insurance plan directly; classed as life of another [ see comments above re Insurable interest ]. Note if they died first though, this can cause issues with the insurer having to undue this arrangement & may require additional legal costs by you seeking specialist advice. The alternative is to put the policy into trust where the Husband or Wife is either one of or the sole beneficiary.
Can my Husband ( or my Wife ) be a Trustee on my Life Insurance Policy ?
Yes they can - if you wish to. If you put the policy into trust where for either one of them or as the sole beneficiary. Either they can be sole Trustee or have 2 Trustees ideally if one died first. Note again if this happens, this can cause issues with the insurer having to undue this arrangement & may require additional legal costs by you seeking specialist advice.
