A Trust is a legal arrangement that allows you to gift the proceeds of your life policy to another person or persons. Unlike a Will, it cannot be contested. When you take out life insurance, it's important to also think about setting up a Trust. Putting your policy 'In Trust' puts you in control of who will benefit from your policy and how much they will receive. A Trust helps ensure faster payment to your beneficiaries and that no inheritance tax liability occurs.Can I cancel my life cover at any time?
