    Life insurance advice 7th Jan 18 at 5:55 PM
    Iím 32, do not have a mortgage or dependants as yet (one day I plan to). I am also in good health.
    I am now earning good salary so would like to take out life insurance policy with critical illness cover. Wherever I look itís all depending on mortgage and children for the length and amount of cover.

    Please can someone advice what length and amount of cover I would need?

    Kind regards

    What is making you look into life and CIC cover? That might help you understand what term you require and how much you need.

    I would suggest that if you are looking for an income replacement if you were ill to explore income protection. This provides a monthly income if you aren't well enough to work after a deferred period as opposed to a lump sum through Critical Illness Cover and it has to be one of the conditions covered.

    You don't need life insurance with no dependants. Sounds like you want illness/injury cover only which is different. Life insurance pays out a lump sum only if you die; not much use to you then.
