Immediate cover facility for Business Protection and Relevant Life

Our immediate cover facility is available for both life protection and critical illness benefits to help your clients get cover in place quickly. This offers full cover – not accidental death benefit – while we request any necessary medical evidence.

  • For policies containing only life protection benefits, we can offer up to 180 days’ immediate cover.
  • For policies containing critical illness cover and/or total permanent disability benefit, we can offer up to 90 days’ cover.

Improved underwriting limits

We’ve also reviewed our medical underwriting limits to make sure they remain competitive. Additionally we've improved our financial underwriting limits for income protection: 

  • We no longer routinely require financial evidence for employed customers.
  • We've increased the limit where we'll routinely request financial evidence for self-employed customers.
  • We no longer routinely need any evidence of earnings for executive income protection.
