- Level payment – the amount payable remains the same throughout the term e.g. £200,000, or
- Decreasing – the amount payable reduces with the amount owed on your mortgage.

Family Income Benefit
Monthly payments that replaces the income of the policy holder when they die. It is a term policy.Example: John earns £24k a year. He takes out a 20 year term policy and dies in the 5th year. For the remaining 15 years of the policy life, John’s family continue to have John’s yearly income. When 20 years is reached, the income stops.
Why do I need a Adviser to help me find Insurance?
In the days of comparison websites the question we often here is ‘Why do I need an Adviser?’ and the response is if you want to see what products are available on the market, then you don’t need an Adviser.
You can find the ‘best rate’ on a comparison website.
You can apply for the top or cheapest result.
You can be refused.
You could keep doing this and ultimately destroy your credit rating.
Or worse, you could end up with the wrong cover.
The problem is this. Comparison websites present you with results loosely based on the few questions they have asked about aspects of your personal circumstance, but these few questions will only return to you an example of the products available across the entire market and not those ones necessarily suitable for you.
