I am delighted Aviva is sponsoring this promotion of their Free Parent Life cover
When you have kids, people offer you all kinds of advice. Sleep while you can. Sleep while the baby sleeps. You can’t have too many muslin squares. Routines are key. Routines are optional. Don’t follow advice and follow your instincts… And so on. But actually, the most important piece of advice we received was to sort out the finances, including day to day expenditure and wills. We were advised to think about how much extra we would be spending each month and where all our money was going. Another important consideration is making sure your family is protected financially if something were to happen to you or your partner.
Life insurance can help protect things like mortgage payments should you pass away unexpectedly. Thinking about how much money your family would need to maintain their lifestyle if you weren’t around can give you a good idea of how much life insurance cover you could need.
When I was asked to take part in the #avivafreeparent campaign to spread the word about Aviva’s free life insurance policies for new parents I was interested to find out more and see how it could benefit our family. Aviva recognise that as parents, we have many worries and navigating those first few years is far from easy. Their cover offers new parents £15,000 of life insurance each for free with no strings attached, there’s no purchase necessary and you don’t even need to give your bank details.
Aviva offer a year of free life insurance for each parent for every one of their children under 4. It’s reassuring to know that if one (or both) of you pass away during the term of your plan, the full amount of £15,000 per policy be paid by Aviva. I feel like this goes a long way to giving you peace of mind that if you or your partner passes away you can have the practicalities covered. Having access to that lump sum would give you the security to take care of outstanding debts, the funeral, or mortgage/rent payments while you come to terms with a difficult situation. The cover applies to each child under four and it takes just a few minutes to apply from your computer, phone or tablet.
