A life insurance policy can have a number of benefits other than providing protection to family and loved ones should the worst happen, Confused.com has suggested.
The comparison site stated it can help with matters in the present, such as counselling, tax, moving house and health and fitness.
"Many people don't know that once you have a life insurance policy there are many added extras that can be made use of without needing to make a claim on the policy," said Matthew Lloyd, head of life insurance at Confused.com.
He advised people not to forget these extras when getting life insurance quotes.
