    The Bucket List Plan

    What is the Bucket List Plan?

    The Bucket List Plan is a Term Life Insurance policy that includes Terminal Illness benefit and optional Critical Illness cover. 

    At claim, a Concierge Service is available if you are claiming for terminal illness or critical illness. This is to help and assist you in planning your bucket list aspirations. 

    You may choose to use a smaller proportion or even none of your payout for your bucket list items and instead decide to use the funds for purposes such as care or giving to family, charity or a deserving cause. It is your decision. 

    As you would expect, the plan also provides a lump sum in the event of death provided that you haven't already claimed the Terminal Illness benefit.

    What is life insurance and how does it work?

    Life insurance is used to provide a lump sum if you die. The money can be used for anything but is normally used to pay off a mortgage, to provide childcare or to ease the financial pressures should you pass away or, as with the Bucket List Plan, to pay for your bucket list aspirations and therefore do many of the things you want to do before you die.

    Types of Life Insurance:

    1. Term Life
    This type of plan runs for a specific period of time which you can choose. After this period of time, the plan ends and the cover stops. If a claim has not been made by the end of the specified time period, there is no payout. 

    2. Whole of Life
    This type of plan runs until you die so there is always a payout as long as you keep up with the payments. It is important you choose the right policy for your circumstances, considering the costs, benefits and risks of each and how the money will be used. 

    The Bucket List Plan is a Term Life policy with Terminal Illness benefit and optional Critical Illness cover. This life insurance policy is provided by our partners Cignpost Life.

    Do I need life insurance?

    As well as the Bucket List plan benefits, life insurance could help protect your loved ones' lifestyle if you were to pass away. A lump sum payout (also known as the cover amount) would be paid if you were to die while you have the policy. This could be used to pay your mortgage, rent or other bills, giving you some peace of mind that there would be one less thing for your loved ones to deal with.

    What is Terminal Illness benefit? 

    Terminal Illness benefit is an integral part of your Bucket List Plan whereby if you’re diagnosed as being terminally ill, the plan will pay the cover amount.  

    A terminal illness is a definite diagnosis by a consultant of an illness for which both: 

    >the illness either has no known cure or has progressed to the point where it cannot be cured; and 

    >in the opinion of your consultant and the insurer's medical officer, the illness is expected to lead to death within 12 months.

    How much does the Bucket List Plan cost?

    The Bucket List Plan starts from £5 a month. The cost of cover could depend on the type of policy you take out, your health, your age and whether you smoke or not. Other factors include how long you want your insurance to run and the amount of cover you choose.

    Will my premiums change?

    Your premiums will remain the same throughout the length of your policy, unless you make changes to your cover amount.

    How much cover do I need?

    Depending upon your age, you can choose from three levels of cover:

    >The 100 Level that provides you with a £100,000 payout

    >The 175 Level that provides you with a £175,000 payout

    >The 250 Level that provides you with a £250,000 payout

    These levels of cover are designed to offer you a choice of cover that may meets your budget requirements balanced with a sufficient payout to meet your bucket list aspirations and depending on the chosen level, provide enough for other wishes you may have.

      How long do I need the plan for?

      Again, depending on your age, you are a offered a choice of three terms:

         > 10 years

         > 20 years

         > To age 65

      You can choose a term period that suits your needs and budget best.

      Is my Bucket List Plan payout taxable?

      The payout isn't currently liable for Income tax or Capital Gains tax. However, if your estate is large enough, there may be an inheritance tax liability. This could change if the legislation changes.
