Harrogate, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 27, 2011 -- Engage Mutual, one of the larger UK mutuals providing simple, value for money savings, protection and investment products, has enhanced its Guaranteed 50 Plus Life Cover for the intermediary market to offer additional features, increased levels of life cover, and more flexibility and choice.
As a result of extensive feedback from intermediaries, who highlighted their clients' wish list of priorities around life cover, it is anticipated the revised product, which retains its simplicity of application, will create even more opportunities for advisers seeking to develop their protection business.
Levels of cover have been increased overall with the maximum level of cover increased to £40,000; a wider range of premiums from £10 to £75 per month are now available; and accidental death benefit has been increased to £48,000.
Two additional services are also integral to the new product: access to a free, independent long-term care advice service from one of the UK's leading independent care advisers; and a no cost funeral funding option in association with The Co-operative Funeralcare, which pays a £250 contribution towards funeral costs (terms and conditions apply).
"Understanding the market is critical to ensuring that our products can assist advisers in solving their clients' protection wants and needs," said Karl Elliott, marketing director at Engage Mutual.
"Working closely with intermediaries for the past three years on Guaranteed 50 Plus Life Cover, we have honed and enhanced the product to make it a more accessible and comprehensive offer for clients seeking that little bit more peace of mind from their later life cover."
The Guaranteed 50 Plus Life Cover offers:
* No underwriting or health questions
* Guaranteed acceptance without a medical
* Separate rates for smokers/non smokers
* Guaranteed lump sum payment on death
* Low-cost life insurance premiums from £10 per month
* Guarantee premiums will never rise
* Premiums cease at age 90 but cover continues
* Accidental death benefit in 1st two years with full cover payable after two years
