Gift Inter Vivos

Gift Inter Vivos Insurance – case study

We were contacted by a gentleman who asked us for information and quotes for Gift Inter Vivos Insurance.

He told us that his father will reach his 82nd birthday later in the year and has decided to gift the majority of his estate to him. The gift is valued at £1.3 million, meaning there could be a potential inheritance tax liability of £540,000. The clients require a life insurance policy for the father which will cover any potential IHT liability.

The most cost effective policy is a Gift Inter Vivos Life Insurance plan which has a seven year term. The quote for a Gift Inter Vivos policy with a sum assured of £520,000 is £1,663.13 a month. It is worth noting that the same plan for an applicant who is 5 years younger is priced at £849.35 a month.

Please note that any premiums mentioned are indicative only and based on this specific case study/ example, which is shown for information purposes only. Your own circumstances will determine whether the amount payable is more or less than the figure quoted.

The maximum age someone can be at the end of the policy is 89 years old, therefore we need to try and get the policy underwritten and started before our client’s 82nd birthday in a few weeks time. Based upon the client’s age and the sum assured, all insurance providers will request a nurse medical (usually carried out in someone’s home). In addition to this, all providers will also request a completed questionnaire from the applicant’s GP.
