What is family income benefit?

Family income benefit is a type of life or critical illness insurance that pays a monthly income, closely aligned with your calculated monthly living costs. Quite often taken alongside a traditional single lump sum life insurance used to pay off borrowings, such as a mortgage.

This can include paying ongoing rent, utility bills, vehicle payments, food and other day-to-day living expenses. Benefits paid tax free and in addition to any state benefits directly to your surviving family.

Did you know?

While the name suggests it is an insurance for families, many of our customers don’t have dependants and have the cover in place for partners alongside a life insurance policy.

How does family income benefit work?

Starting a family income benefit policy is easy with us. We deal with you directly, and take the time to understand your unique circumstances, including:

  • Your personal and family details
  • Health and lifestyle
  • Employment and income
  • Monthly commitments.

We then source the best cover available on the market from reputable insurers at the most competitive prices. We only use insurers that we would want to deal with ourselves and that put you first.

How is family income benefit calculated?

A typical family income benefit policy is less than you think. Your premium will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • How much cover you need
  • The term of the policy
  • Your age
  • Your health.

As a whole of market insurance provider, we have access to all the insurance companies in the UK. This means we offer one of the best ways for you to get an accurate and competitive family income benefit quote.

When should I consider family income benefit?
