But surely the time left on a visa is the maximum permitted ? No-one knows at that point if you are going to renew it or not do they, so how can they demand more ?

The Covid Insurance must cover the period of stay granted on entry.
If you are returning on a re-entry permit on an extension based on retirement then the Covid Insurance must be valid until the renewal date of your extension.
