Following the Government’s announcement asking everyone to stay at home, we’re making some changes to the way we work to make sure we’re looking after our people and our customers. We’re setting up as many of our colleagues as possible to work from home, but this will take a few days.
In the short-term, we’re only accepting new business online. That means new customers can’t buy insurance over the phone.
Existing customers: Please don’t phone unless it’s absolutely necessary.
We need to prioritise:
- Customers who have an urgent claim, for example your car is undrivable following an accident, you are injured, or your home is uninhabitable.
- Customers who can’t pay now as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, call us - we want to help you.
If you have questions about your renewal or want to make a change to your policy, you can use our virtual assistant. If your policy is due to renew in the next week and you haven’t opted for auto-renewal, please call us. If you have opted for auto-renewal, please make sure your insurance still meets your needs.
For more information and frequently asked questions about COVID-19, go to our Coronavirus help and support page.

Over 50s Life Insurance explained
Our Over 50s Life Insurance, provided by AIG, is ideal if you want a policy that pays out a cash sum to help out your loved ones when you die. The money could be used to contribute towards funeral expenses – giving you extra peace of mind.
To get a quote you only need to provide your date of birth, whether you smoke and how much you wish to pay each month. You can then easily adjust your quote by increasing or decreasing your monthly payments.
Is life insurance a better option?
Life insurance helps to protect your family financially if you die during the length of your policy.
You can choose the amount and length of your life insurance. And you only have to answer a few lifestyle and health questions to apply.
Writing the policy to a trust
Help take control of your family’s financial security by placing your Over 50s Life Insurance policy in trust.
You specify who receives the proceeds in the event of your death.
Things you need to know
- The total payments you make for your insurance might exceed the amount of your insurance, depending on when you die.
- The amount you pay and the amount AIG will insure you for depends on your age and smoking history when you take out the insurance.
- If any payment remains unpaid for more than 30 days, we’ll stop your insurance and you’ll no longer be insured, unless you qualify for the protected insurance amount.
- Inflation will reduce the spending power of any money paid in the future.
- If you're purchasing this insurance to cover your funeral expenses, it may not provide enough money to cover the full cost.
