Q: Will my lump sum be taxed?

A:

Life cover payments aren’t subject to income tax or capital gains tax, as your monthly premiums have already been taxed from your earnings.

You might need to pay Inheritance Tax if the value of the estate you leave behind is over the current threshold of £325,000 (2018/19 tax year).
