Index Link your Policy Option to increase your benefit by up to 5% each year (to the nearest £50) to ensure it keeps up with inflation.

11 We have nothing to hide... Exclusions have been kept to a minimum, but as you would expect – in common with other insurers - war, AIDS, deliberate self inflicted injuries and normal pregnancy are not covered along with the following: Sickness for the first 90 days of the plan Chronic conditions - for example existing diabetes Alcohol, solvent or drug abuse Backache or whiplash (unless there is radiological evidence of medical abnormality) Failure to seek or follow medical advice Mental illness or stress Participation in criminal activities If you are away from the European Union for more than 90 days consecutively, subject to residency rules

12 Easy to apply... No Medical Examinations or Questionnaires
You are guaranteed cover under our ‘Moratorium Clause’. This means: NO medical examinations, NO lengthy questionnaires and NO waiting for medical reports from your GP. The underwriting process is quick and simple. You can be covered immediately, without delay. We apply a straight forward exclusion to any medical conditions (or related) that you may have suffered in the last 2 years. Once you go just 2 years from the policy start date, free of symptoms, treatment, medication, tests or consultations for that condition, you will then be covered for it should it arise again.

13 Quick and simple claims process...
We have made it refreshingly simple to make a claim on this policy

14 Our promise to you... Cover 365 days a year, 24 hours a day
As soon as we receive your first premium you are covered at home, at work, on holiday - anytime, doing anything! Benefits are paid directly to you to use as you wish. We will never increase your premiums or refuse to renew your policy because you make too many claims. You will have 30 days to review the plan in the comfort of your own home. Worldwide Cover.

15 We refund 25% of ALL premiums...
Our NO CLAIMS Cash Back Offer! Include our Return of Premium option and you get this extraordinary money back guarantee: If you keep your policy for 12 continuous years and do not make a claim, we will refund 25% of ALL the premiums you have paid! This makes Sovereign a win-win situation! Because if you need the policy and make a claim, you’ll receive a valuable benefit. But if you don’t use the policy, you get back 25% of your money! THAT’S MONEY IF YOU CLAIM! MONEY IF YOU DON’T!
