Local estate agency Connells in Stevenage is delighted to announce it is now offering an award-winning range of protection products provided by insurer Friends Life.
The new insurance products, which include life, critical illness and income protection, also offer valuable additional services including the Bupa HealthLine and a service which offers policyholders the chance to get an expert second opinion on the treatment they need if they contract a serious illness or medical condition.
“No one wants to think about what might happen if something prevents them from earning an income for a period of time or, worse still, if they die,” said Mortgage Services Consultant Juliet Twining.
“It’s crucial to have insurance in place when you take out a mortgage. That way, if the worst should happen, your dependants and home are protected. We are urging those with or without existing policies to come and discuss our new insurance products and see if they could offer a better level of protection.”
Despite the importance of life insurance, critical illness cover and income protection, recent research by Friends Life found that only around 50 per cent of those surveyed have policies in place to protect them should the worst happen.
Of those who had policies, only half regularly reviewed their policy to make sure it provided adequate protection for their changing needs.
“Many people look at putting protection schemes in place when making big life decisions, like buying a house or starting a family, but there are still huge numbers who have no means of maintaining an income if, for example, they were diagnosed with a serious illness or lost their job,” added Juliet.
“The new range of Friends Life protection products, available through Connells, offers this peace of mind.”
