Two thirds of British cigarette smokers say they want to give up. Aviva advises that by giving up not only can you improve your health, but also see a significant reduction in life insurance premiums.
The number of smokers has decreased in the last year. But, one in seven Aviva customers are still smoking, meaning they pay more for their life insurance premiums than non-smokers.
Not only does quitting smoking reduce the risk of life threatening illness such as cancer and heart attacks, but also by quitting smoking, you may be able to help protect your family by purchasing life insurance with some of the money you save.
It is not only the people who have never touched a cigarette who benefit from reduced life insurance premiums. Anyone who quits smoking for a year is classed as a non-smoker and will receive the same lower premiums.
