At Milestone Financial, we are advocates of life insurance and are passionate about the benefits and security the right policy can provide for families and individuals. As we age, we find ourselves happily gaining loved ones; wives, husbands, partners and children that we want to provide for in the event of our death.
We understand that securing life insurance can be an uncomfortable process for some and as a result we guide all of our clients with compassion and understanding. There are different types of life insurance and it is vital to select the right one for you. We have simplified the types of policies that are available below:
Term Assurance Policies:
Term insurance allows you to select the amount you want to be insured for and the period for which you require cover. Should you die within the term, the policy pays out to your beneficiaries. But it is important to be aware that if you do not die within the agreed term, your beneficiaries will not receive a pay out.
Level Term Life Insurance Policies:
Put simply, if you agree to a level-term policy the amount that your beneficiaries will receive remains ‘level’ throughout the term and your annual or monthly premiums generally also stay the same. Level-term policies provide a lump sum that your family or loved ones can take advantage of in the event of your death.
Decreasing Term Policies:
If you need to cover a debt, such as a mortgage, that reduces over time a decreasing term policy may be right for you as the amount you are covered for decreases over time. The main advantage is that premiums are significantly cheaper, however there will be no lump sum available after you have died for your beneficiaries.
Whole-of-life policies are ongoing and are not subject to a specified term, they are more expensive because a pay out is guaranteed. We treat each person as the individual that they are and take time to appreciate their specific circumstances; family life, health issues, living arrangements and financial status.
Critical illness insurance is becoming more and more important. Recent claims statistics state that we are five times more likely to suffer from a critical illness than we are to die before the age of 65. A critical illness can prevent a person from working for a significant amount of time, which can have serious repercussions for families or an individual’s security. How would you pay your mortgage and your bills? How will your family be provided for? These are questions that we should all be asking ourselves.
We advise our clients not to overlook critical illness insurance in favour of life insurance, very often securing both alongside each other is a cheaper option than buying either alone. If you or your loved one is diagnosed with a critical illness it can be an enormously stressful time for everyone, knowing that you are financially secure can decrease stress and worry immeasurably. A cash lump sum can provide peace of mind and some breathing space during a time of real difficulty. At Milestone Financial, we can arrange critical illness insurance cover no matter what your previous medical history is and how complex your needs may be.
Choosing a policy that meets your requirements can be daunting with all the many providers available that’s why we have carefully selected a handful of reputable and market leading providers to provide you with the best cover available.
We will also look to have your insurance policies written in trust so that should the unfortunate happen and you need to claim on the policy the trust will ensure that the right amount of money goes to the correct people and does not form part of the inheritance tax bill. We feel this is extremely important for our clients.Get in Touch

“I was looking to purchase a larger property and sell my existing flat to fund the deposit for my new house. However after speaking with Gary at Milestone Financial he showed me alternative options that meant I could keep my flat by turning it into a buy-to-let mortgage giving me a future investment. This meant I was able to release equity from my flat to put down the deposit for my new house and have both properties. I was delighted with this and couldn’t thank Gary more."

“We were in a difficult situation when our own bank had declined our mortgage for our dream home that we had already put a deposit on and didn’t know where to turn. We were introduced to Milestone Financial who evaluated our situation and managed to find us a mortgage product very quickly, which didn’t mean loosing our house! We couldn’t have been more grateful and relieved. They handled our case extremely well and gave us constant updates relieving all the stress off us. We would certainly come to Milestone Financial again.”
Mathew & Emma Strake – London
“When we were looking for mortgages for our first home we found the whole process confusing with so many mortgage lenders available and so much paperwork. We came to Milestone Financial who sat us down and explained the whole buying process and what would happen at each stage of the process. They secured an exclusive mortgage deal for us and through there contacts also arranged a solicitor for us. The whole process was made so simple from start to finish, we don’t think we would be in our house today if it wasn’t for Milestone Financial.”
