  • What happens at maturity if my policy is legally tied to a mortgage lender?

    If the money from your policy is to be paid directly to your mortgage lender, they will need to authorise the 'Payment instruction form', which we will provide. This will give us the information we need to transfer the money to your lender.

  • What should I do if my policy is no longer legally tied to my mortgage lender?

    Please contact them to ask for a letter confirming they no longer have an interest in your policy. If you no longer have details of your mortgage lender, please contact us and we'll do our best to help.

  • What happens to my money if I do nothing at the maturity date?

    Your policy will no longer be active or ‘in force’ from the maturity date and so your benefits will come to an end and your money will be held in a cash account until we hear from you.
