Mortgage Broker Q & A – Life Insurance or Assurance?

Question; What’s the difference between life insurance and life assurance?

Assurance refers to cover for an event that will definitely happen or that is inevitable, so in the case of life assurance this means that the policy will always pay out if payments are continued because it will run for the whole of your life and inevitably will therefore pay out when you pass away.

Life Assurance is therefore an investment, whereas life insurance will run for a specific term and will only pay out in the event that you pass away within the term. Should you survive the term there will be no return on the premiums however this will obviously be reflected in the price.
