hello, I hope you can put my mind at rest. my son and caught in law have had a very hard life through. I'll health and financially..I have helped them throughout the years and love them dearly in February I took out a life insurance on them as I knew they had no means to do this,they are both in their 50s and thought l would surprise them to know their. sons would be safeguarded.this has backfired on me, she said I had no right to do this. I am75 years old and worry about them have I done wrong and what can I do.

Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

What is your daughter in law's objection to this kindness?

She says I should have discussed with her first and objected to me she quotes-taking liberty but the idea was to surprise and please her

She also says its illegal to take the policy's out on other people I am not asking her to pay the premiums ,I am paying them through my bank

She is not correct.

Your generous gesture is not illegal and is an excellent way of protecting your grand children

Please ask if you need further details
