Legal & General

Intermediary Designed is their commitment to you and your business. They’re continuing to invest and build on their intermediary heritage, as well as looking at new ways to improve their service so they can deliver more for you. 

They are focusing on one positive goal – working together to grow the protection market. They will continue to evolve their collaborative relationship with you, sharing responsibilities and working towards the same goals. They’ll be here for you and your clients - today, tomorrow and into the future. 

L&G know protection is sold not bought. Only 31% of UK adults have life insurance, but by working together we can change this and protect more people.
 

Umbrella Benefits. Additional cover your clients can count on


Introducing our new Umbrella Benefits.  Exclusive to intermediaries, it’s a package of additional cover and services to help you meet the needs of your clients, while providing the choice they want from their protection products.  

What’s included: 

  • Wellbeing Support – personalised emotional and practical support from a dedicated registered nurse provided by RedArc Assured Ltd. Included as standard on our personal protection policies. 
  • Fracture Cover* – financial peace of mind if your clients get injured. Covers multiple claims per year, with a maximum benefit of £7,500. Available for an additional £5.90 a month. 
  • Private Diagnostics* - it’s important to be able to get answers quickly when facing a serious illness – so clients are provided with access to some of the UK’s top consultants. Available for an additional £4.50 a month. 
  • Rehabilitation Support Services – once your clients have made a valid claim, our in-house team of healthcare professionals can provide tailored support advice, as well as help them return quickly to health and work. Included as standard with our income protection policies.

How to Register

If you are setting up agencies for the first time with providers

 Please complete an origo application. All agencies will be required to complete an on-boarding process including financial checks, FCA checks, validation checks etc. and they will require signed personal director guarantees. Please note that a commission withhold facility will be put into place when a DA firms unearned indemnity commission (UIC) amount reaches £75k. This is to help build up a cash reserve to help offset any potential debts if the firm suddenly ceased trading. More information can be provided on how this scheme works.

If you are an adviser to a firm that already has agencies

You can contact L&G's registrations team via [email protected] or call their team on 0370 0500 274 option 2, you will need to have their agency number to hand. An adviser can also register for OLPC access online by clicking herethis usually requires a directors email address being entered to approve the OLPC request (security check to confirm the person works for the firm)
