Imortant Notes

The policy has no cash-in value at any time.

If you don’t pay your premiums on time your cover will stop, your benefit will end and you’ll get nothing back.

The policy will end when we pay out the benefit amount.

Over the course of the policy, the amount you pay in premiums may exceed the amount of cover you take out.
