What would happen if You became seriously ill, disabled or suddenly passed away?

It’s not something we want to spend much time worrying about, but with the right life covers in place you will have peace of mind knowing that you and your family will remain financially secure should the unexpected happen.

The problem with taking out insurance over the phone or "DIY" online is that without proper professional advice from someone with the right training, systems and experience, you will only know something isn't covered when it comes time to make a claim. Are you going to risk it all on what you know about insurance?
