LV= has added guaranteed insurability options, back to work support and career break options to its income protection policy.
The guaranteed increase option means customers can increase their cover without any medical or financial underwriting if they increase their mortgage; get married or register a civil partnership; have or adopt a child; or have an increase in basic salary as a result of promotion, changing employer or gaining qualifications.
The back to work service can provide financial support and advice to help people return to work with confidence. The career break option gives cover for up to a maximum of £1500 a month if they decide to take a break from work.
