What makes Zestylife different?

If you’ve spent any time at all looking for Over 50 Life Insurance, you may start wondering if there’s any difference at all between all of the insurers out there. You might start looking at things like freebies instead of actually looking at the policy itself. There can’t be too much difference between them right? That’s where Zestylife comes in.

What can Zestylife do for you?

As we progress in life our priorities change. Kids grow up, mortgages are paid off and retirement is on the horizon. You’ve been through a lot and made it through in one piece.

Zestylife can take one of those worries away and help give you peace of mind.

You want to squeeze as much out of life as possible and we want to help you do that with one less worry.

How does Zestylife compare?

If you’ve spent any time at all looking into getting Over 50 Life Insurance, it might all start to seem a bit overwhelming. There are plenty of choices out there but there are some potential benefits that make Zestylife a choice worth considering.

One of the main differences that you might notice with us is that we offer cover for death by any cause up to £5,000 of your benefit amount from day one for the first year with accidental death cover. You might be asking yourself ‘how is this possible? Surely there’s some catch?’. The main reason we can offer something like this is that we ask a few questions upfront. Many Over 50 Life Insurance companies design their policies to be as general as possible. They don’t take into account people who could be healthier or haven’t had any significant health issues. When you’re applying for protection with Zestylife, you won’t have to provide us with a medical or any blood tests. Instead, we’ll ask you some health and lifestyle questions to see if you’re eligible for cover.

By answering these questions it also has an effect on the amounts you could have access to. Here are the amounts that you could potentially select during the application process:

  • £1,000 up to £22,000 (aged 50-69 at start date)
  • £1,000 up to £20,000 (aged 70-74 at start date)
  • £1,000 up to £13,000 (aged 75-80 at start date)

If you are worried about how inflation will affect your payout, we also offer an increasing benefit option. With this option, your payout amount will increase by 3% each year. Along with the payout your monthly premium will increase by 4.5% as well, so it’s important to consider your ability to pay for these premiums.

If you’re concerned about the quality of the insurance, our policies are issued by the Best Mutual Insurer 2020, 2021 & 2022.1 

Ultimately we can help make the process of getting Over 50 Life Insurance simpler and faster. Allowing you to spend more time enjoying your life without having to worry about what’s coming down the line.
