Why is Life Insurance important for truck drivers?

Life as an HGV driver is demanding. Long hours on the road can increase your risk of health complications which is a likely reason why sadly the life expectancy of lorry drivers is below the national average. When you have life insurance in place you are protecting those you love from facing financial difficulties should you pass away. A life insurance policy can pay out a lump sum or a regular income.

Just click on the green button above and and after entering just a few details, you can have your search for life insurance underway. Our partners are experts at searching for life insurance cover for HGV drivers.

How does Life Insurance work?

Nobody likes to imagine the worst but, just like making a will, life insurance is there to make an undeniably awful situation less complicated and stressful. If you should die, your family may lose their income and that can add a lot of pressure at a very difficult time. A life insurance policy can be set up to provide an income which can cover the mortgage or rent, pay for childcare, funeral costs and help with the cost of living.

You could also opt for a lump sum payment if you would prefer. By talking to our partners they can make you aware of what cover is available to you and what may fit better with your needs.

You should always declare any medical condition you may have when asked and fill out documents accurately and honestly. If you do not do this, you may find your policy is void and you are not covered.

I am an HGV Driver. How can I get cheaper life insurance?

Premiums are calculated using a number of factors. Some of those relating to your role are:

  • How many hours you spend on the road

  • What you are hauling. Is any of it hazardous?

  • Do you travel to dangerous areas or regions?

  • Do you do any lifting as part of your job?

Often these risks are not ones you have any control over. However your general health can also affect the cost of your life insurance. Due to the lack of physical activity in the role of a lorry driver, many drivers struggle with weight gain which can lead to issues such as diabetes, DVT, high blood pressure, heart complications and sleep problems.

The following actions may help to reduce your premiums:

  • Looking after your health

  • Keeping active where possible

  • Giving up smoking

  • Taking out life insurance early

Generally. the younger you are when you take out a life insurance policy, the less you will pay.

What is the benefit of using our Life Insurance partners?

Our expert partners can guide you during the whole process and answer any queries you may have.
