How does it work?

What is the Over 50's Plan?

If you're aged between 50 and 80, the Over 50's Plan is an easy way to contribute towards funeral costs. You don't have to worry about medical questions - we won't ask any.

There is guaranteed acceptance if you're aged 50 to 80 and a UK resident and you haven’t exceeded the premium limit. You can have multiple policies as long as your monthly premium is not more than £100 in total for all Tesco Bank policies taken out with Aviva.

This life cover pays out a lump sum when you die on or after 12 months of cover. More information

You can choose the amount you want to be covered for, or how much you can afford to pay each month. Over 50's Plan starts from just £7 a month. You also have the choice to take out the Funeral Benefit Option where an additional £250 on top of your sum assured will go towards the cost of your funeral. Find out more about this option

You can cancel your policy at any time but you will not get any money back.

Please make sure you read the policy documents before applying. See our policy documents

How long will I pay for?

The amount of your monthly premium will depend on your age and the amount you choose to be covered for.

You'll pay your premiums for 30 years or to the policy anniversary after your 90th birthday, whichever comes first. Depending on when you die, you may pay more in premiums than is paid out.

The Over 50's Plan starts from £7 a month with fixed premiums. Your monthly premium will never go up - even if there's a change in your health or lifestyle.

Adding funeral benefit option is completely free of charge and won't affect your monthly payments or the amount you're covered for in any way.

More details, including the terms and conditions, can be found in the our policy documents. See our policy documents

Funeral benefit option

One less thing to worry about

Funeral benefit option is an optional extra with the Over 50's Plan. This option is completely free of charge and will not affect your monthly payments or Sum Assured in any way.

It allows the Sum Assured from a Tesco Bank Over 50's Plan to be paid directly towards the cost of a funeral with The Co-operative Funeralcare instead of to the estate. This means the payment can help take care of the funeral bill which will be one less thing for the family to worry about at such a difficult time.

If you choose this option, The Co-operative Funeralcare will make an additional £250 Contribution towards the cost of the funeral.

A full pack will be issued by The Co-operative Funeralcare should you decide to take this option. More details, including the terms and conditions, can be found in the our policy documents. See our policy documents

You can get more information about funeral costs from the Money Advice Service.
