Care4 life insurance

Many of us will never have considered death planning, but did you know...

With Care4 life insurance, a cash lump sum on death is payable to your estate. The money can be spent in any way, maybe as an investment for your loved ones or to act as a funeral insurance to cover funeral expenses.

Death planning is something that many of us may not have considered but did you know...

  • Between 2004 and 2011, the average cost of a funeral in the UK rose from just under £2,000 to just over £3,000 - an increase of about 60%*
  • The additional costs of flowers, memorial stones, announcements, catering at a wake etc., have spiralled to an average of £7,248*

What our customers say

Health cash plan
"I've used this service four times in the last year. The last call was for my wife; we called at 7am and a doctor called back within 25 minutes. The problem was addressed over an hour before our local surgery even opened. Unless I need to see my GP in person, I would use this facility every time from now on."

Health cash plan
"I go to the osteopath every two months to help with the damage done to my back. The benefits are enormous. My back pain has gone, and I can now see to the side without having to turn around. With each session costing £42, my health cash plan is helping me maintain a major improvement in my physical wellbeing."
BHSF policyholder
"Care4 has provided me with the reassurance that if the inevitable happens, my family will have the financial support they need. It will be an emotional time, and it doesn't need to be made any more difficult by worries of where the money will come from to pay for the funeral."
BHSF policyholder
Network Benefits
"This year my car insurance quote increased significantly, so I decided to look around to find a better deal. With Network Benefits I was able to get a quote that was £100 cheaper than my renewal and would reduce my excess by £430 - the service was quick and effective. I would recommend it to anyone."
