Writing a policy into Trust could be perceived as something that only the wealthy require but the reality is all life insurance policies should be written into trust.

By planning your family’s financial future and arranging your life insurance the right way you could give your loved ones the maximum possible benefit and protect their current and future standard of living.

It’s also important to ensure the policies you have in place will pay out to those that are intended to benefit.  A trust also helps with Inheritance Tax Planning, as any life policies in trust bypass probate and are not included within the estate when someone passes away.
