Choosing the level of cover

We’ll have a chat to look at your overall financial wellbeing to help you choose the right level of cover. We’ll give you your options and tell you how much each level of cover will cost. There’s no pressure to decide. We can send you the details so you can have a think in your own time.


Gathering the details

When you’re ready you can let us know what level of cover you’ve chosen. We’ll go through some details about your health and lifestyle. Depending on your lifestyle and your health, there may be an additional cost or we might need to look for some medical documents. Then we’ll draw up the policy and ask you to sign. This can be done digitally – no need to come into us.


Putting it in action

Your mortgage advisor or broker will be able to tell you when it’s time to start your mortgage protection policy. Once you get the go ahead we’ll start the policy. This is when you’ll start paying for your mortgage protection cover. We’ll still be around if you’ve any questions but that should be it – you’re set.
