Cover however you pay for your phone

Who is covered?
All FlexPlus current account holders, their partners and dependent children.
Your partner is the person the account holder lives with at their home address. You should be in a relationship, whether married or living together, regardless of gender.
A dependent child is any child, including a legally adopted, fostered or stepchild, of the account holder. To be covered, they must be both:
- under 19, or under 22 if in full-time education, and
- not married or in a civil partnership.
What is full-time education?
This is education undertaken in pursuit of a course where they spend an average of more than 12 hours per week during term time receiving tuition, engaging in practical work, getting supervised study or taking examinations. For example, a National Diploma, traineeships, apprenticeships or a degree.
They also need to be either:
- living permanently with you, the account holder, or
- living with their other parent or in student accommodation for the remainder of the time.
When does the cover start?
Sometimes, we might not be able to open your account straight away. For example, if you're opening a joint account and we need additional signatures. In these cases, your cover begins as soon as you get our letter or email saying your account is open.
What's not included?
Exclusions and limitations apply to some types of cover, so always check the policy documents for full details. Here are some of the main exclusions.
Cover for incidents where you haven't taken care of your mobile phone.
