Legal & General Offer a Mother's Day Gift With a Difference

Give a gift that will set their mind at rest: the peace of mind of knowing the family is secure even if they're no longer there...

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 28, 2011) - As Sunday 3rd April approaches, Legal & General are proposing an all-together unusual, but nonetheless heartfelt gift for mothers on Mothering Sunday; life insurance.

New research shows that a typical UK mum is worth over £30,000 per year in financial terms. That's how much it would cost a household to keep up with the work around the home if they were to die or become critically ill.

Incredibly, the average mum spends 71 hours a week on chores and childcare, with most of that time being spent with children. That's a staggering level of dedication.

Despite this, only 49% of mums have any life cover. For critical illness cover, the numbers are even lower – just 22%.

Looking into life cover is a gesture a family can make that not only recognises a mothers amazing contribution, but also helps secure their future.

A spokesperson for Legal & General said "With a life cover plan from Legal & General you'll know you're providing support far into the future, even if you're not around in person to take care of the family yourself."

"It might seem like a big step, but you'll be surprised at how cheap life insurance can be – quotes start from as little as £6 per month. So there'll be plenty left over in the family budget for indulgent Mother's Day gifts."
