Whether your clients are expecting their first baby or are dealing with a household of wild teenagers, they’ll want to make sure they have financial security should something happen to them.
Over the years your clients will start to have other needs over and above protecting just their mortgage such as providing for their children.
By using a menu approach to protection, they could combine Life Cover, Critical Illness Cover and Income Protection to provide them with comprehensive cover for the entire family.
As an example, for £121.29 a month, a family can cover a £175,000 mortgage on a joint life basis for Life or Critical Illness Cover - including Enhanced Children's Critical Illness Cover. This covers both parents and their children. However, the plan will pay out once only on the parents' lives for life or critical illness.
If both partners take out separate covers under the same plan, they can build a protection package that's more comprehensive and tailored to their family's needs.
So for an extra £8.83 a month (total premium £130.12) our family can protect themselves with:
Making use of this menu approach can enable you to mix and match multiple covers to suit each individual client. The added benefit is that this approach can result in cost savings as illustrated above as well as reducing time and administration as there’s just one application. And the plan can even be amended at a later date by adding or removing covers, increasing or reducing benefit amounts.
These are obviously just suggestions - you can create your own package from any of our covers, tailoring them to suit your client’s needs and budget.
Our most comprehensive Children's Critical Illness Cover provides tailored protection for the family. It includes cover for 12 child-specific conditions plus our 46 main critical illness conditions and 14 additional conditions currently available on our Critical Illness Cover. Adults and children are also covered for an extra additional condition – pregnancy complications.
Our comprehensive support service that’s included in all our protection plans available through intermediaries. It’s available to your clients from the day their plan starts, they don’t need to pay anything extra to use it and their partner and children can use it too.
