SLI365- Service Life Insurance

You can protect the future of your family from today until 2042 at a fixed price FOR THE WHOLE TERM. Perfect for safeguarding your mortgage and with a Government guarantee of payment for operational casualties. 

Service Life Insurance 365 was designed and introduced by MOD in 2007 to provide a robust, trustworthy solution for enduring Military Life Cover – when purely commercial operators declined to provide cover for Service Personnel facing the threat from war, weapons of mass destruction or terrorism. 

Exclusively available online, you can either pay your premium by Direct Debit from your bank – ideal if you intend to retain SLI365 as a civilian (through to age 65 if you wish) or through your pay account with Joint Personnel Administration ‘JPA’. 
SLI365 can provide up to £200,000 lump sum benefit in the event of death or terminal illness - covering all peacetime risks such as traffic accidents and illness. Most importantly, because SLI365 is available under a contract with MoD, it guarantees protection for up to 25 years for any unforeseen operational risk. 

A summary of the benefits include: 
* Cover on and off duty, 365 days a year 
* Up to £200,000 lump sum benefit on death or diagnosis of terminal illness – covering all peacetime risks 
* Quick application progress - acceptance a certainty – (18-45 year olds) 
* No medical required 
* Fixed premium 

For every policy taken out we make a donation to tri-service charity, The Not Forgotten Association ( to support the great work they do in providing help for serving injured and veterans. 

So, have a look at a brochure available now from most local HIVEs or visit where you can get a quote for your chosen term (anything between 5 and 25 years) and chosen benefit amount. If you would like more information, please visit our website – or drop an email to to request a unit briefing from our ex-military manager.
