Protection specialist, The Exeter, is offering 2 months’ free income protection cover to all new applicants
The vast majority of workers in the UK fail to protect their income, with 61 per cent having no form of protection to replace lost income in the event of serious illness or injury. Income protection has always been a product which has struggled with positive sales, due mainly to the fact many consumers are ill-informed about the importance of income protection schemes, according to The Exeter.
The limited special offer applies to The Exeter’s full range of income protection plans; Pure Protection, Income One and Bills & Things. As part of its promotional efforts, The Exeter hopes the new offer will raise consumer awareness.
Commenting, Head of Sales Karen Woodley said: “With the uncertainty currently affecting the UK, we appreciate that protection insurance may not be at the top of every consumer’s priority list. With this offer, we want to reassure advisers that one thing they can be certain of is The Exeter’s commitment to helping them protect more clients.”
“Income protection should be the bedrock of financial planning, but suffers from a general lack of consumer awareness. This offer will give advisers another great reason to discuss income protection with their clients, whilst making cover against ill health even more affordable.”
