Life Assurance is the most basic form of a life insurance policy, and therefore it is usually cheaper.
You are covered for a fixed period of time, and if you happen to die during the policy term, it pays out a one-off lump sum.
Many of the term insurance policies allow you to add additional options, such as critical illness cover. This plan would pay out on diagnosis of a qualifying illness, or if you die during the term of the policy.
Life Assurance is for anyone who wishes to leave a lump sum to loved ones in the event of their death – within the specified time period of the policy.

Miss W has been a client of mine for over 9 years. Unfortunately, the past few years have been an extremely trying time for her and her family, firstly with the loss of her 21-year-old daughter in a car accident, and then suffering from a stroke in June 2012 at the age of just 41.
This resulted in a bleed on the brain and a short stay in hospital, thankfully my client is expected to make a full recovery.
Fortunately, Miss W agreed with the protection advice I gave her in 2007 and took out a mortgage protection, life & critical illness policy, after successfully submitting a claim Miss W received £127,688 from Legal and General in August 2012.
" After my recent experience I really can't stress the importance of protecting your home and family, I would never have submitted the claim form because I'd forgotten I had this cover. I will never be able to thank Marc enough for helping me, If anyone is thinking of reviewing their circumstances, I would recommend Marc Catry without hesitation " Miss S W.
