Family Protection

The aim of life protection (or life assurance) cover is to protect you against the unexpected. It will provide money for people who financially depend on you. We need to consider the impact and consequences our death would have on the people most close to us.

We can look at your lifestyle to tailor a protection package, ensuring your family will be financially secure whatever life throws at you. Helping you to protect the things that are important; your family, your health and your lifestyle.

“Protection planning - our expertise, your peace of mind”


Term Assurance

Term Assurance

You only get a pay-out within the 'term' of your policy. The payout also known as the Sum Assured is defined when your policy is accepted and started and can be either on a fixed basis (the payout is a fixed amount) or on a decreasing or increasing basis (the payout can either decrease or increase in line with an interest rate or an index) and continues through the term of the policy until the end. Level Term Assurance then guarantees a fixed lump sum to pay out upon death within a fixed time.

Decreasing or Increasing Term Assurance then guarantees a lump sum that either decreases or increases throughout the life of the plan in line with an interest rate or an index within a fixed time. Decreasing Term Assurance and Increasing Term Assurance are very useful to cover the outstanding amount on a Mortgage (Decreasing Term Assurance) or known future increases in wealth to be insured (Increasing Term Assurance).

 
Family Income Assurance

Family Income Benefit

These policies are intended to meet the needs of parents with (or planning to have) children to offer protection in the event of their death(s). They provide for an income payable from the date of death until a fixed time in the future (e.g. the youngest child's 18th or 21st birthday).

 
Whole of Life

Whole of Life Assurance

These are policies that provide life assurance for the whole of your life. Whole of Life insurance guarantees to pay out in the event of death, whenever it occurs, generally as long as the premiums are paid. The premium you pay may also include an investment element which helps to pay for the cost of cover over time.

 
Critical Illness Cover

Critical Illness Cover

For many the financial risks of a serious illness or injury are more important (and likely) than death, as it may lead to loss of work, treatment and additional care costs. A critical illness policy will make a lump sum payment on diagnosis of defined “critical” illnesses, serious conditions or injuries. The covered conditions, and level of payment, vary greatly from policy to policy so it is vital to read the terms and conditions of each rather than simply choosing the cheapest.

 
Income Protection

Income Protection

Income Protection Insurance is designed to pay a regular tax free monthly income if you are unable to work due to illness or injury, but as defined by the terms of each individual policy.




These plans have no cash in value at any time and will cease at the end of the term. If premiums are not maintained, then cover will lapse.

Plans may not cover all the definitions of a critical illness. The definitions vary between product providers and will be described in the key features and policy document, if you go ahead with the plan.
