Provider's individual IP offering joins DLPS portal
Unum is the latest protection provider to be added to LifeQuote, the specialist portal owned by Direct Life & Pensions.
Advisers will soon be able to access Unum’s Income Protection plan through the LifeQuote portal, which incorporates its “Intelligent Protection” quote and apply module.
Linton Penman, head of retail sales and marketing at Unum, said that many financial advisers have in the past been “turned off” income protection because of the apparent complexity of the product and lengthy underwriting processes.
“By working with partners like LifeQuote, we can bring a much-needed product within easy reach of almost everyone,” he said.
Other providers available through the LifeQuote portal include AEGON, Ageas Protect, Aviva
Bright Grey, Exeter Family Friendly, Friends Life (incorporating Bupa and Friends Provident), Legal & General, LV=, PruProtect, Scottish Provident and Zurich.
Advisers will be able to access the Unum product from 15 April.
