Post Office Life Insurance is provided by The Royal London Mutual Insurance Society Limited.

Critical Illness Benefit can pay an extra cash sum if you are diagnosed, during the term of your policy, with one of the three critical illnesses covered that meets our definition and then survive for at least 10 days after.
We won’t pay a claim on terminal illness if you don’t meet our definition of terminal illness; or terminal illness is caused by intentional self-inflicted injury within 12 months of the start date of your policy. The full definition of terminal illness can be found in the Terms and Conditions.
We won’t pay a claim if you don’t keep your payments up to date as you will no longer be covered under the policy.
