Scottish Provident has made extensive pricing changes to its income protection rates, with some prices cut by over 10%.
Income protection provides the valuable security of covering your income in the event you are unable to work due to sickness, accident or disability. With recent changes implemented to the qualifying criteria for Employment Support Allowance, meaning that only 16% of applications are being accepted, compared to the 83% previously, this cover could become more essential than ever.
Susan Barclay of Scottish Provident says, "Our customers are getting among the most attractive deals on the market in terms of safeguarding their futures, and the additional benefits available at no extra cost underline the fact that we are listening to our customers, many of whom are struggling to make ends meet."
