Life Insurance could offer peace of mind from bill and payment concerns

One way of easing financial worries is ensuring your family is protected financially. There are a number of protection products available to families that can help, whether through an income protection policy to cover monthly bills or life insurance to ensure your family is protected in the event of your death.

New research from Post Office Life Insurance has found that almost half of the UK's parents are experiencing physical signs of stress due to the recession, with two thirds worrying about paying the weekly food bill.

The Post Office Life Insurance research found that half of the UK's stressed parents admitted to eating badly, a quarter were smoking more heavily, and a quarter drinking more than six months ago - all factors which can impact on life insurance premiums. Sixty-four per cent of UK parents were worried about paying the monthly bills.

Duncan Caesar-Gordon, head of protection products at the Post Office, said: "One way of easing financial worries is ensuring your family is protected financially. There are a number of protection products available to families that can help, whether through an income protection policy to cover monthly bills or life insurance to ensure your family is protected in the event of your death."

Post Office Life Insurance is a simple, cost-effective way to pay off your mortgage or leave your family a cash sum when you die. Life insurance policy premiums start from as little as £5 per month.
