Speak to a sports expert at Sports Financial Services to discover the life insurance options available to skydivers. Typically, a life insurance policy provides a lump sum to help and support your beneficiaries in the event of the insured death. The calculation of life insurance premiums depends on many factors, such as:
- How many jumps per year you undertake?
- Where do you go skydiving?
- Do you skydive competitively?
- What type of skydiving activities do you participate in?
- Do you do any skydiving instructional work?
- Are you a member of the Sport’s Governing Body?
There are a number of other factors that have to be taken into account to determine your skydiving life insurance premiums, for example:
- How much cover you need (total £ sum assured)
- Length of your policy (number of years)
- Which type of life insurance pay out you require (e.g., fixed sum for the life of the policy or pay out linked to a declining mortgage amount as a mortgage is paid off)
