Online mortgage broker Trussle has hired a team offering income protection, critical illness cover and life insurance.
Income protection covers the income when people are too ill to work, critical illness cover pays in a lump sum when people fall ill, while life insurance pays out to beneficiaries or family if the policyholder dies.
Prakash Patel, head of protection at Trussle, said: “Building our own protection team at Trussle is a really positive step towards supporting our customers throughout their home ownership journey.
“Since Trussle’s inception, we’ve helped many people secure and finance their dream home. We know mortgages are one of the biggest financial and emotional commitments people make in their lifetime, and we now have a really important opportunity to ensure our customers are protected.
“Talking about protection can be hard as nobody wants to consider the unexpected. Our aim is to really support and guide our customers through the protection journey and make sure they’ve got adequate cover.”
Trussle customers will now be offered a protection review with a qualified adviser who will compare deals from providers
