Putting your life insurance in trust could help your loved ones when you’re gone. Less tax and a quicker pay out being just two good reasons.
You might not want to think about what happens after you’re gone. But what’s certain is you’ll want to help make sure the people you leave behind are looked after, financially speaking. If the worst does happen, your life insurance could pay out a cash lump sum to your loved ones.
However, putting – or ‘writing’ – your life insurance policy in trust means having more control over who benefits from that pay out. It could also help reduce the chance of an inheritance tax bill and it’ll speed up how quickly the money’s released.

What is Powers of Attorney?
Powers of Attorney (POA) have been serving the public for centuries. They are powerful legal documents which allow an individual (Donor) to appoint a person of their own choice (an Attorney), to look after their affairs should they at a later stage no longer wish to make these decisions, or lack the capacity to manage their affairs themselves.
Lasting Power of Attorney for Property & Financial Affairs This allows the persons appointed (the Attorneys) to make decisions about paying bills, dealing with banks and investments, arranging and collecting benefits and even selling property on behalf of the Donor. Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare This allows the Attorney(s) to make decisions for the Donor such as care issues, where the Donor lives, and, where the Donor wishes, giving or refusing consent to life-sustaining treatment.
As the name of the power suggests (‘lasting’) both of these powers continue to be valid even after the Donor loses capacity. Once registered, a Lasting Power of Attorney for Property and Financial Affairs can be used by the Attorneys at any time, HOWEVER, a Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare can ONLY be used when the Donor has lost mental capacity.
