Making payments

Here’s everything you need to know about making a payment to us.

Making a payment to us

Your payment will take three working days to clear, if you pay by bank or Post Office. It will take five working days to clear if you pay by post. We don’t issue receipts.

Important: When you make a payment, please use your policy number as your payment reference. This helps us identify which policy the payment is for. (If your policy number isn’t used as the reference, we can’t allocate your payment to the correct policy.)

Payment information for our Guaranteed Over 50 Plan and Protected Funeral Payout Plan only.
