Recalculations of Premium

Where Rate for Age has been selected, your premium will be recalculated at each anniversary date.

Where a premium structure of 10 years, or to age 65 and to age 80 is chosen, the premium will be calculated over that period. Sovereign guarantees this premium for Life Cover — Personal, Family Protection and Accidental Death benefits. For all other benefits the premium may change at any anniversary date if Sovereign changes its underlying premium rates. In that case, Sovereign will recalculate the premium to apply for the remainder of the period. At the end of any recalculated 10 year period, the premium type will convert to Rate for Age.

If the cover is not indexed to CPI the premium will be level for the period chosen (unless there are changes to the underlying premium rates).
