Financial Protection Can Help Protect Against Difficulties

Published: 6/13/2010

As the credit crunch adds to the strain many families are facing, Legal and General are advising people to look at financial protection products to help ease the stress.

A Legal and General spokesman highlighted the key areas that the credit crunch is impacting on, with mortgage rates on the rise, fuel and food costing much more year on year and council tax bills also eating into what are relatively unchanged incomes. If anything were to happen to those bringing the income in then the family would very quickly face difficulties.

The Legal and General view is that family protection is essential and they offer monthly income replacement cover for a defined period should the holder of the policy suffer a critical illness or pass away.
