Life insurance & Critical illness

We know that taking out a protection insurance policy probably isn’t one of the most exciting purchases you’ll ever have to make, but it certainly is one of the most important one!

And, unless things go wrong and you have to make a claim, you won’t normally get to see the benefits.  Whether its for your mortgage or your individual family needs, as part of the mortgage process we will always look to offer you the protection review and advise on the best possible way to protect you and your family should the unexpected happen.

As an experienced mortgage broker, we’ll tailor your protection to your needs and provide you with good overall cover whilst its affordable and fits within your budget.

What is Life Insurance and Critical illness?

Life insurance and Critical illness (also known as serious illness cover) products are designed to help to protect you, your family and your children from the financial impact of illness, disability and death. The proceeds can not only be used to repay the mortgage but also be used to fund any treatment, cover financial affairs or used to tick as many things off that bucket list as possible in the time that’s left.

Can I put my policy in Trust?

One of the Key benefits of setting up life insurance is to put your policy in TRUST. This will ensure that the proceeds of your claim would go straight to your loved ones without getting involved in capital gains tax or lengthy probate.

We will explain in more detail on how the trust works and how to set it up in plain English. As an experienced mortgage & insurance adviser we have access to a range of insurers to find you and your family the most suitable protection for complete peace of mind.
