The money that is paid out to your family is dependent on a range of factors including the type and level of life insurance cover you take out. There are many UK poviders offering varying life insurance - this includes diffferent costs, length of policy and terms included.

That means you can nominate somebody to look after the money if you die and there’s a payout before you want the intended recipient to get the money. A common example is parents who want to have the payout go to a child only once the child turns 18 or 21. Putting a policy into trust also ensures that the payout goes to your intended recipient and can’t be seized by creditors if you have any debts when you die. There may also be tax benefits to putting a policy into trust.
