Arranging life insurance cover is usually straightforward. You decide how much cover you need, over how many years you need the cover for, you sign on the dotted line and you pay your monthly premiums.

However, there can be many factors that make a difference to the time your life insurance cover takes to arrange and the amount you have to pay.

These factors will often come to light either when you first talk to an adviser, or when you complete your life insurance cover application form.
