How much do LifeCovered brokers charge?
Our service is free of charge.
You will not be charged a fee, at any time, for any advice given even if you do not take any of the insurance cover recommended for you.
How does LifeCovered make money?
As a company, we get paid a commission for policies we sell for an insurance company.
Not to worry because the commission is already built into the price of all insurance policies.
The revenue pays salaries, rent, expenses and taxes.
We do not have performance quotas with insurance companies or product providers.
