Equity Release

If you're over the age of 55, equity release offers you a way to use the value of your home to raise money.

There is a range of equity release schemes available on the market offered by reputable equity release providers, and they fall into two main categories, Lifetime Mortgages and Home Reversion Plans.

Each type of equity release scheme facilitates a different method of releasing the equity in your home, and there are various other useful features available to create the ideal equity release scheme for you. Alternatively, our recommendation may be to use other forms of finance, other assets or other benefits and grants that you may be entitled to, once we have assessed your situation.

EQUITY RELEASE WILL REDUCE THE VALUE OF YOUR ESTATE AND CAN AFFECT YOUR ELIGIBILITY FOR MEANS TESTED BENEFITS.

Life Assurance

The main purpose of Life Assurance is to provide money for those people who may depend on you financially, in the event that something should happen to you. These people could include family members or business partners.

It can provide the reassurance of financial protection for you, your family and your business associates.

A Life Assurance policy pays out a sum of money when the person who is covered by the plan dies. The money is intended to pay off any outstanding debts and support your dependants financially by providing them with a further lump sum or a regular income if you die.

Please be aware that this type of assurance is based on an assessment of the health of the applicant.

THE PLAN WILL HAVE NO CASH IN VALUE AT ANY TIME AND WILL CEASE AT THE END OF THE TERM. IF PREMIUMS ARE NOT MAINTAINED, THEN COVER WILL LAPSE.

Critical Illness Insurance

Insurance that pays out when a defined medical event occurs. For example, following a heart attack, stroke, cancer or some other specifically defined critical illness.

Cover is for a set term, which may be equal to a mortgage term, for when children have grown up, until retirement or another life stage milestone. It may be worth considering having one policy for a set term to cover the mortgage, and another that will provide money to help provide for your different lifestyle if a serious illness happens.

Most people choose a lump sum to be paid out. There is the option of receiving it as set income over the term remaining, which is often a lower cost option.

IF THE POLICY HAS NO INVESTMENT ELEMENT THEN IT WILL HAVE NO CASH IN VALUE AT ANY TIME AND WILL CEASE AT THE END OF THE TERM. IF PREMIUMS ARE NOT MAINTAINED, THEN COVER WILL LAPSE.

THE POLICY MAY NOT COVER ALL THE DEFINITIONS OF A CRITICAL ILLNESS. FOR DEFINITIONS PLEASE REFER TO THE KEY FEATURES AND POLICY DOCUMENT.

Income Protection

This provides income where you are ill or injured, and as a result your income through employment or your normal route stops. If Houseperson’s cover is included, then it will pay out upon illness or injury, irrespective of any income stopping.

It is designed to replace most of your net income.

Cover lasts for either a set term in whole years, or to a given age (typically your state retirement age). The amount you pay is called the premium. It can either be guaranteed not to change, or it can be reviewable. Reviewable cover normally changes based on the claims experience of the life assurance company.

Business Insurance

All businesses are exposed to risks in their day-to-day operations. Without insurance cover to provide protection against some of these risks, businesses would find it difficult to operate efficiently and profitably.

All businesses that employ at least one person are legally required to have Employer’s Liability Insurance.

These days, many people are not afraid to seek compensation. No win - no fee advertisements encourage claims, and businesses need to protect themselves against liability claims that could run into millions of pounds. In addition, you could be held personally responsible and even face criminal charges if found negligent.

Adequate insurance is therefore not a luxury - it is an absolute necessity.
