Women and insurance - The Single Woman

Few young single women need life assurance, except occasionally term assurance.

However, as they get older, life assurance becomes as important for women as it is for men.

It is increasingly likely today that they will buy their own house or flat.

Unlike men, single women are less likely to be in a good pension scheme and even if they are, the chances are that, despite the Equal Pay and Sex Discrimination Acts, they are in lower paid jobs than men and have not been able to build up their pension rights.

Life assurance can help them to top up their pensions or perhaps buy an annuity On the whole; single women fail to recognize that they have the same financial needs as men.

If you are a single woman, whatever your age, here are some of the advantages to be had from life assurance:

life cover

the opportunity to accumulate tax-free capital

regular saving with the benefit of tax relief pension options at 60 in some cases

the building up of benefits which you may be able to use for mortgages and loans

Payroll Giving
It’s all very easy to organise.
Just ask the Personnel or the Payroll Department at your company and, if they already have a scheme, they will give you the relevant forms.  HM Revenue & Customs’ website has a list of Payroll Giving agencies and explains payroll giving in more detail.
