Calculate your Life Insurance cover

With LifeOne the amount of cover is up to you. So if you have assets or money tucked away, you might opt for lower cover. But if you have significant debt such as a mortgage, you can choose a higher level of cover so your family won't be burdened financially.

We've put together a simple calculator to work out how much LifeOne cover you may need to take care of your loved ones' financial future.

More information about Cigna’s Life Insurance policy

Death by suicide or intentional self-injury is not covered within 13 months of when your policy starts. In some cases we can't cover you for existing medical conditions but we'll take you through this in your application.

You'll find a full list of exclusions and everything else in the Cigna LifeOne Insurance policy wording and brochure.

If you applied for life insurance before 25 February 2014, your cover is slightly different - your policy wording is here.
