Often, providers will add additional benefits to your cover. These can sometimes be added as a bonus at no extra cost, or some are optional, with additional costs. Having additional benefits added to your protection cover can help to provide reassurance and support, should you ever encounter an unexpected life event.
There are many benefits that you might not be aware of which you can add to your protection cover scheme. We’ve asked Kaitlin Charlton, Mortgage and Protection Advisor to outline some benefits, and to explain how the additional benefit can benefit you!
