Advance payment

A payment of up to £5,000 to help bring some early financial relief while the full claim is assessed.

If your claim requires additional assessment we could make an Early Days Advance Payment.

Early Days Advance Payment is £5,000 unless your amount of cover is lower, in which case we’ll pay that amount.

If your claim is approved we’ll pay your remaining amount of cover. If the claim is unsuccessful though, we won’t ask for the Early Days Advance Payment back.

We won’t be able to make an Early Days Advance Payment if there’s evidence that you gave wrong information or you didn’t tell us information that we asked for at the time of your application.

No matter how many Legal & General policies you have, we’ll only make one Early Days Advance Payment.
