    Cap your premiums

    Premium cap option iconIf you're aged 50 - 80, rather than paying premiums every month for life, you can choose a higher monthly premium that stops after a certain number of years, or until death if earlier - we call it Premium Cap Option. You'll still be covered for life and your cash sum will be the same.
