Maintaining your protection cover is vitally important

Financial hardship can strike when we least expect it, showing the importance of having protection cover in place as a safety net.

A recent YouGov1 survey about the pandemic revealed that nearly a third (32%) of Britons fear for their future. Payouts from life insurance, critical illness and income protection can help lessen the blow of unexpected events.

Data from the Association of British Insurers shows that more than £5.7bn was paid out in protection claims in 2019.
