Summary

The UK’s over-50s population is growing, which means the customer segment is a growing opportunity for insurance providers. Those over 50 are often treated and targeted as one segment, but the market is highly diverse, and a “one size fits all” strategy should be avoided. Individual lifestyles differ due to a number of factors such as whether individuals are retired, whether they have dependent children living at home, their health, and their financial freedom.

Acknowledging this should encourage a move away from targeting the singular “over 50s” segment towards focusing on the different life stages associated with growing older. This is important because differences in lifestyle mean the insurance needs of individuals also differ. Insurance providers must acknowledge and use this to develop their products and services to make them more relevant to consumers.

Key Findings

- Individuals with dependent children, partners, or parents require life insurance. 16.5% of over-50s have a child under 18, while 28.9% of parents over 50 have an adult child still living at home. Income protection and a policy linked to a mortgage are relevant for these individuals who are looking to financially protect their family. They may also look into long-term social care for dependent parents.

- 57.0% of the over-50s UK population is economically inactive, which is driven by those aged over 65. Retired individuals are less dependent upon working for income and less likely to have a mortgage but will still have dependents in need of financial protection. These customers will be looking into retirement and investment planning, seeing how they can pass on their assets to their children.
