ChildShield, from MetLife, is here to protect your children from birth, right up to the age of 22. It’s a standalone product that can complement existing policies or be taken out on its own. And because it’s unique, it can provide protection no other policy can.
Whether it’s in the home or garden, in the park, whilst out and about, or playing sport - it’s just part of life. And while we hate the thought of illnesses affecting our children, the truth is these can occur at any time, too.

Plan for the unexpected
None of us like to think about our children being ill, needing emotional support or having accidents at any age. But it’s important we plan for those unexpected moments.
Boost your family’s wellbeing
ChildShield doesn’t just provide 24/7 protection for those unexpected moments, but also gives you and your children access to MetLife's Wellbeing Support Centre provided by Health Assured, the UK and Ireland’s largest wellbeing support provider. Benefit from counsellors with ‘in the moment’ support, legal advisers, and nurses – all of whom can help navigate and support with life’s challenges. This too is available all year round, 24 hours a day.
Enjoy virtual GP access
You and your family will also get access to MetLife's virtual GP appointment service, GP24, provided by HealthHero. GP24 allows you to book an appointment with registered GPs 24 hours a day, every day of the year, anywhere in the world, for no extra cost.
Below, you can see the accidents and illnesses that ChildShield can protect your children for. What’s more, there’s no limit on the number of children covered or claims you can make under the same, single policy.
Choose from two levels of cover:
ChildShield Standard - £6 per month
ChildShield Plus - £11 per month
The coverage is the same, except ChildShield Plus pays double the benefit, at less than twice the cost.
