Throughout December, Scottish Widows will be donating one pound to the British Heart Foundation for every Scottish Widows Protection for Life policy sold. The-tie in complements Lloyds TSB and Scottish Widows' two-year partnership that launched in July 2008 when the British Heart Foundation (BHF) became their charity of choice.
All money raised between 2008 and 2010 by the Lloyds TSB Group will be used to help fund 15 new BHF heart nurses in local communities providing more heart patients and their families with the vital care and support they need.
Scottish Widows is also giving two months’ cash back to customers at the end of the first year with every Protection for Life policy purchased throughout December. Protection for Life can cover a family's protection needs in one simple and flexible plan and customers can add and remove policies as their needs change throughout life.
Richard Jones says: "We are very pleased to bolster our two year partnership with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) through our Protection for Life campaign as well as providing our customers with this cash back opportunity. With just under half of households relying on two incomes to run the family home, millions of families are leaving themselves at risk of being unable to survive financially without adequate protection. If one of the breadwinners became unable to work as a result of critical illness, death, disability or due to an accident, many could find themselves and their families in serious difficulty without the necessary cover. At a time when families are experiencing increasing financial difficulty, making an early New Year's resolution to insure their most important possession, their loved ones, not only gives peace of mind but also a bit of extra cash back into their pockets."
Scottish Widows Protection for Life offers the choice of Critical Illness Cover, Life Cover, Lifetime Cover and Income Protection all under one plan.
