"We look forward to building a new partnership with MAB advisers and helping more clients to protect their income"
Mortgage Advice Bureau has added LV=’s income protection and personal sick pay plans to its protection panel.
Personal sick pay, an income protection product developed for people in riskier jobs such as tradespeople, nurses and manual workers, is the first product of its kind to be included on the panel. For the self-employed and clients who are more expensive to insure, PSP offers a number of features including age-costed premiums.
The insurer's income protection includes a range of features and benefits at no extra cost including parent and child cover, fracture cover and death benefit. Budget options are available including 12 and 24 month limit claim periods.
Alongside the core income protection insurance cover, LV= offers daily benefits to help clients with everyday issues not linked to a claim. These include free access to legal and counselling advice and doctor services - an app-based service including remote GP and prescription services and provides access to physio, mental health and second opinion experts.
Debbie Kennedy, managing director of protection at LV=, said: “At LV=, we have a unique income solution which makes it easier for advisers to have that all important protection conversation. We look forward to building a new partnership with MAB advisers and helping more clients to protect their income with our leading protection insurance.”
Andy Walton, protection proposition director at MAB, added: “I’m absolutely delighted to welcome LV= to our protection panel. They enable us to offer new solutions to more clients through personal sick pay and income protection. So should the unexpected happen, they can keep up the repayments on their mortgage and maintain their lifestyle.”
