AIG Life Removes its Over 50s Life Insurance Plans
AIG Life – the UK’s life insurance branch of AIG – has withdrawn its over 50s life insurance plans from the market and will not be offering the policy to new customers.
AIG Life will no longer offer over 50s life cover
An AIG Life spokesperson has stated that the move to no longer sell over 50s life insurance policies was a ‘commercial decision’.
Existing customers will not be affected by the change and will remain fully covered if they have over 50s cover in place through AIG Life, so there’s no need to cancel your policy if you already have one.
It’s also worth noting that AIG Life will continue to offer over 50s cover through its partnerships, but not as an AIG Life product.
AIG Life’s over 50s plans were designed for those aged over 50 to leave a pay-out to their loved ones, which they may use to cover debt, and/or pay for their funeral in the event of their death. It was a popular policy as cover started at just £5 and there was no medical exam required – everyone over 50 was eligible.

Despite no longer offering specialist over 50s life insurance, AIG continues to provide other personal protection policies, including:
- Basic life insurance
- Critical illness cover
- Income protection
- Whole of life insurance
It also provides various business insurance products and employee benefit schemes, such as group life insurance and income protection.
