Life Insurance Trusts
Life insurance in a trust can simply be viewed as a way to protect your life insurance pay out from the tax man.
Typically when a person dies, their assets, property and any money is calculated as their estate.
When passing items or money in an estate to a partner or family member, inheritance tax must be paid.
For example if you leave £100,000 cash to your partner after you die but do not put your policy in trust, this would be liable for tax at 40% – that’s £40,000 to the tax man!
We feel this is highly unfair, not only is it the worst time possible to be dealing with tax, when your family are grieving, but the money used to purchase the policy or home was already taxed when you earned it. This is why we put our policies in trust – to protect you and your family’s future.
A policy in trust protects all of your policy from inheritance tax. It is not counted as part of a person’s estate.
We automatically put our policies in trust for this very reason, we care that you get all of your insurance payout as this can be a vital source of income for grieving families.
These types of policy are often misunderstood or not described fully – that’s why we make sure we explain everything. We make you feel informed and empowered to make the right choices for your family.

These are just a few things to think about when obtaining life insurance. If you pass away the policy will pay out a lump sum to your family, loved ones or whomever you choose to get the money.
