We want to make applying for life insurance simple
If you’re not sure how to apply for life insurance we’ve written this guide to help. Apply for life insurance.
Start by getting a quote on our website. If you’re not sure what type of policy you need please have a look at some of our guides or get in touch.
It’s important to remember that we can’t offer financial advice. We do our best to give you the information you need. If you’re not sure what type of cover you need please contact an independent financial adviser.
Once you have your quote you will see the list of policies available starting with the cheapest. We have two columns for each insurance company. One column is what we describe as ‘fee based’ policies and the other is our ‘no fee’ policies. But what does that actually mean?
If you apply for a fee based policy you will pay a one off fee of £25 and take advantage of the lowest premiums possible. This fee is paid before you complete the application but is always refundable if for any reason you choose not to take up the policy.

Am I nearly there?
Yes we promise. If you have chosen the fee option you will now go ahead and pay your fee. After you have paid your fee you will continue and complete the application. It is here you will answer questions about your health, lifestyle and occupation. An average application takes about 15 minutes but it can be a bit longer if you have more complex medical information to give.
If you’ve chosen the no fee option you will be able to complete your application straight away.
I’ve applied for my policy. Now what happens?
Most applications will be accepted immediately and can start straight away or on your chosen date. If the insurance company needs more information they might write to your Doctor. In some cases they may ask you to attend a basic medical. You wouldn’t pay any extra and everything is arranged for you. It is unusual for an insurer to ask for a medical but this can happen with large life insurance policies. You can arrange the appointment at a convenient time and often at your home address.
Something’s gone wrong. What should I do?
We have worked hard on our website but if you do experience any errors or you just don’t understand part of the process please get in touch.
