Are you and your family protected?

Many families would struggle to make ends meet if a family member developed a serious illness or died. This is why it’s so important to make sure you have the right level of financial protection in place. Our specialists can give you the peace of mind that you and your family are protected, whatever the future brings.

Why might you need protection?

Setting up protection usually involves taking out insurance policies to:

  • Maintain your lifestyle if you became unable to work due to an accident or illness
  • Provide for your family if you died or developed a serious illness
  • Cover a future Inheritance Tax bill without the need to sell the family home


Death or illness can have knock-on effects that would leave most families in a precarious financial position without the right level of protection. For example, a serious illness could leave you unable to look after your child and you may need to pay for childcare. Or if you suddenly died, your partner may be unable to keep up with mortgage payments and other household expenses. Protection ensures that your family will be financially secure, whatever the future brings.
