What happens if I stop paying my life insurance premiums?

Life insurance premiums need to be paid every month for the duration of the term. If you do not keep up the monthly premium payments, your policy will lapse and cover will cease.

Protect Line will endeavour to contact any customer who misses a premium payment whereby a cancellation request hasn’t been received. We do this because we understand that sometimes payments can get missed by accident, and most insurers offer a grace period in which you can reinstate your direct debit or catch up on your policy payments without losing cover.

If you are struggling to meet your monthly payments please contact Protect Line immediately. We want to help you keep your family protected, especially during times of financial uncertainty. It may be possible to reduce your monthly premiums (and cover amount) without having to reapply, or we can find you a new policy that works within your budget.

All help centre articles are designed to help give generic information to UK consumers. Protect Line operates on a non-advised basis, so no help centre article should be considered as advice or an indication of the terms and conditions of your policy. Insurers also update their terms and conditions from time to time and while Protect Line endeavours to keep all information up to date, there is a chance the information on these pages may become outdated. All information is correct at the time of publication. To ensure you fully understand the terms and conditions of your policy please read all your documents and contact us for clarification if there is something you do not understand.
