Wake up your clients to income protection

As a financial adviser, you know just how important income protection is, but sometimes it can be a difficult subject to tackle with clients.

However, changes in the way people live and work mean there’s now a massive opportunity in the income protection market, so making sure you’re equipped to tackle conversations with confidence is more important than ever.

We’ve drawn upon our experience and market insight to shine a light on renters, gig workers, the self-employed and divorcees; the people of the UK who could be most at risk if they’re unable to work due to illness or injury - and in need of your help. With our insight, tools and support, we’re here to help you fine-tune your approach and take full advantage of the opportunity. 

So, turn off your phone, grab a coffee and see how you can wake your clients up to income protection.

Always evolving; our latest improvements

Renting or buying? Income protection fit for the future 

We work hard to make sure our income protection products are fit for the future for all our customers. So we’ve improved the built-in flexibility of our Life Change Benefit option to ensure that both tenants and those with mortgages can increase their benefit if their monthly rent or mortgage payments increase.

From 28 June 2020, customers with full term Income Protection+, 2-year benefit Income Protection+ and Living Costs Protection can easily increase their cover, if they’re on standard terms, without the need for further underwriting, if:

  • There is an increase in rental payments imposed by the landlord, or
  • There is an increase in rental payments due to a move to another rented property, or
  • There is a move from rented to mortgaged accommodation.

These changes only apply to Income Protection+ and Living Costs Protection policies taken out from 28 June 2020. It’s worth remembering that the policy must have been on risk for 6 months before the Life Change Benefit option can be used.

Our solution

Helping you bridge the income protection gap

There are 23.5 million households1 in the UK and only 4% of UK adults have income protection in place2.  Even fewer tenants have income protection - of the UK’s 8.6 million rental households1 only 2% have cover in place2.

Whether your clients are renting or own their home, we have a range of flexible income protection options that are fit for the future.

Visit our Tenant Protection hub for insight and tools to target the tenant protection market. 

 

We continue to support our NHS medical staff with special Income Protection arrangements for doctors, surgeons, nurses and midwives.
