    • Shelley Read, Senior Intermediary Development and Technical Manager (Protection), Royal London

Cost of Dying Crisis


The cost of living in the UK is skyrocketing, mortgage rates and rent have shot up, whilst food, energy, fuel, and council tax bills are also increasing. It’s almost inevitable that when families look to tighten household expenditure, that protection policies come under the spotlight. So, while you may find yourself coming up against even more objections from clients when you discuss the cost of protection, then the current economic climate means that having a plan in place is even more essential than ever. If your client sadly died prematurely, became sick or had an injury how would they cope with having even more financial and emotional strains of not being able to work and at the same time trying to pay ever increasing prices in order to get by day-to-day?

Join Royal London to consider the implications of not having cover in place and a range of tools and ideas to help clients understand the importance of protecting their home, their family and their lifestyle
