Not taking any new life insurance customers.

Phoenix Life doesn’t offer life insurance to new customers but the Phoenix Group includes SunLife, which specialises in life insurance for people aged over 50.

SunLife offers a life insurance plan which involves a monthly payment and pays out a guaranteed lump sum when you die. The company pitches its guaranteed over-50s plans as a way to help your loved ones cope with funeral costs, or just to leave them a cash gift when you’re gone.

If you’re unsure what type of life insurance you need and what each offers, our guide to policy benefits can help. If you want to speak to someone or get a quote, then we can help with that, too.
