Preparing for life’s uncertainties

Life is full of everyday challenges, so when the topic of death or serious illness comes up, it’s often easier to avoid it. But these conversations are important. Giving your family a lifeline at a difficult time can make all the difference. We’re here to help you decide what’s best for you - whether you’re covering an entire workforce, or just yourself.


Our protection products provide financial, emotional and practical support when they’re needed most. We can support anyone from an individual and their partner, to an entire workforce.

The last thing anyone needs at a life-changing event is to worry how the bills will be paid. That’s why all our products have a wide range of cover options, to suit every need and budget.

But it’s not all about the financial protection. Often, it’s the emotional damage that can cause bigger problems. All of our products come with a range of support services, designed to make sense of a difficult period. This could be our in-house rehabilitation specialists helping an employee back to work, or an individual using our various counselling services to keep them on the right track.

Whether you’re looking to protect yourself, your family or even your workforce – we’re here to help every step of the way.
