What is Life Cover?

We're here to give your loved ones the financial support they may need if the unexpected happens. The death of a partner or parent inevitably has an emotional impact, but it can also lead to financial hardship, particularly where the main breadwinner is no longer around to support the family.

HSBC Life Cover offers financial peace of mind with a tax-free lump sum payable on death, or diagnosis of a terminal illness. Accidental Death cover is also included.

Our Life Cover can help to provide financial security. A lump sum could help to pay off your mortgage or other borrowing, pay for further education or simply provide an income for your family to help with day-to-day living.

Joint Life Cover is available in branch when you are looking to protect an HSBC mortgage. Joint policies pay out if one of the policyholders dies during the length of the policy, after which the policy ends.

If you're not sure which products are right for you, you can contact your local branch and a member of our team will be happy to discuss the options available with you.

Things you should know

As with all insurance policies, terms & conditions, exclusions and limitations will apply.

For Life Cover we will not cover you for suicide (within the first 12 months of the policy) or if you die due to a pre-existing condition that you have not disclosed to us.

For full details on significant and unusual limitations and exclusions, please read the Life Cover policy document and summary of cover (PDF).

Policy benefits are currently paid tax-free, but may give rise to an inheritance tax liability.

Life Insurance policies have no cash-in value.
