Free Funeral Benefit Option

SunLife over 50 life insurance comes with a Funeral Benefit Option. This free option allows you to have your cash sum paid directly to Dignity Funerals Limited, who will put it towards the cost of your funeral. On top of your payout amount, they will also offer an extra £250 with their Funeral Benefit Option.

When the time comes, your family will only have to make one call and the Dignity Funeral Director will help them with all the arrangements.

Important to know

  • Depending on how long you live, you could pay more in premiums than the cash sum paid out.
  • You need to ensure you keep up with your monthly payments or your insurance will end, and you won’t get anything back.
  • As the cash sum is fixed, inflation will reduce its value over time.  
  • The maximum cover level is £18,000.
