When applying for a policy, all of the standard factors will be taken into account. However, based upon your upcoming deployment status your premiums could be increased.
Your premium might also be loaded depending on your occupational role within the Armed Forces. E.g., for those working in bomb disposal, diving and aviation-related roles premiums tend to be higher due to the associated risks. Once your life insurance has been arranged, it will protect you regardless of where you’re deployed and your policy is likely to include at war risks, meaning that if you were to die at war, the cover would still be valid. All other terms of the life insurance will be the same as that of a civilian.
