What is life insurance?
Life insurance is one of the most cost-effective and popular forms of financial protection in the UK, and it’s easy to see why.
It pays out a lump sum upon death, which provides your family and dependents with priceless protection when you’re no longer around. The money could cover expenses such as mortgage payments, household bills, education costs, and lifestyle needs.
At Hive we provide an invaluable life insurance service. Our quote comparison service looks at products and premiums from a panel of leading insurers, to help you get the product you need at a price you’ll like.

Why do I need life insurance?
Just think how your loved ones would cope if you were no longer there. Could they continue to pay the mortgage and everyday bills? What would their lives be like without your financial support?
How does life insurance work?
Your loved ones will be free to use the cash lump sum in any way they see fit, from paying off an outstanding mortgage to using it to support themselves in future years.

Critical illness cover is lump sum protection against serious illness
Critical illness cover is a form of financial protection that pays you a lump sum when you’re diagnosed with a life-threatening illness such as some forms of cancer, heart attack, stroke, major organ transplant, kidney failure and many more. Depending on the insurer there are usually around 41 conditions covered. Cover is available as a standalone policy, although it is also available alongside life insurance.
