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, a family can protect their £175,000 mortgage for 25 years with Life or Critical Illness Cover on a joint life basis for £112.54 month. However, this would only pay out once, on death or earlier critical illness of one of the lives assured. It does also include Children’s Critical Illness Cover automatically, which would pay out 50% of the cover amount up to £25,000.
However, if we split their protection with separate covers for both partners under the same plan we can start to pull together a protection package that’ll cover a range of situations, as well as maintaining valuable cover in place at a later date should the need arise.
So for an extra £31.11 a month (total premium £143.65) 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.
Automatically included when your clients take out Critical Illness Cover, this covers any children your clients have or may have from birth to age 21. We pay out 50% of the cover amount up to £25,000.
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.
