We provide simple, tangible goals, rewarding your clients who make positive changes to their health through discounted premiums.

Overview


Welcome to the future of life insurance

Life cover that improves with your clients

Whereas most life insurance remains static, failing to reflect changes in health or lifestyle, Managed Life has a clear target market and will reward clients that make positive changes to their health through discounted premiums.

Simple goals, tangible rewards

We provide a simple goal – an improved HbA1c reading or a reduced weight. Before your client buys their policy, we will set their targets, explaining the percentage reduction or percentage increase we will apply to their premium at each policy anniversary depending on how they have managed their condition.

Minimum and maximum premium ‘lock-in’

Once your client’s premium falls or increases to a certain amount, as set before they buy their policy, the premium will be ‘locked in’ for the remainder of the policy term.

Discount for linked policies

Managed Life isn’t available as a joint policy, however we will apply a discount to two linked policies, reducing both premiums and the quote and application process.

Managed Life

Managed Life

Managed Life is a life insurance policy that pays a lump sum benefit when the life covered dies, or is diagnosed with a terminal illness – where life expectancy is less than 12 months.

It is designed for your clients with Type 2 diabetes or who are overweight, two groups that can struggle to find competitively priced life cover.

Income One Plus

Income One Plus

Income One Plus provides bespoke cover for professional, low risk and administrative occupations.

By giving your providers the choice between age-costed and level premiums, Income One Plus can better suit needs and budget. For some, the certainty a level premium provides is key, whereas for others an age-costed premium means cover is more

Key Benefits

  • Cover from day 1, along with a range of waiting periods
    Our day 1 cover option means a claim could be paid after your client has been off work for just 3 consecutive days - we will then backdate the claim to the first day they were absent from work due to illness or injury.
  • An own occupation definition for all, forever
    Some insurers offer a range of definitions according to occupation and risk. With The Exeter it’s different – we only offer your clients an own occupation definition, for all – forever.
  • Affordable age-costed premiums
    Some people like certainty, some want premiums to be as low as possible to begin. Level premiums start higher but stay the same, age-costed premiums are cheaper to begin with, but increase with age. Income One Plus offers both options for complete flexibility.
  • No standard policy exclusions
    We think income protection should be designed to be used, so there are no standard exclusions that might cause surprises at claim.
  • A choice of claim periods
    If long term cover doesn’t suit your client’s budget, you can select a limited claim period of 2 or 5 years for each individual claim, providing valuable cover at a lower price.
  • Options to fix your client’s benefit
    Our new benefit fix options reduce the risk of over insurance and further simplify the claims process. Read our Guide to Income Protection to find out more.
  • Cover that changes with your client
    Income One Plus includes a guaranteed insurability option as standard, as well as short and long term policy breaks, ensuring you can adapt your client’s cover as their life and needs change.

Bills & Things

Bills & Things

Bills & Things is entry-level income protection, designed to streamline and simplify the advice and buying process.

This plan is so simple there are just two decisions for you and your clients to make – how much cover is needed and for how long – is a 1 or 2 year maximum claim period required? Cover is available in blocks of £100, from £500 to £1,000 per month.

Bills & Things isn’t linked to income, so there is no financial underwriting at either application or claim, removing the worry of over insurance.

Some insurers offer different definitions according to occupation and risk. With The Exeter it’s different – we only offer your clients an own occupation definition, for all – forever.

Premiums from just £11.50 per month.

Income Protection (Holloway)


Income Protection is a traditional Holloway style plan, where the core income protection benefit is supplemented by a 'with profits' element, which provides the possibility of a lump sum payment when the policy finishes.

Holloway style income protection plans are popular with people who like the concept of getting a cash lump sum, as well as the core income protection benefits.

Key Benefits

  • Cover from day 1, along with a range of waiting periods
    Our day 1 cover option means a claim could be paid after your client has been off work for just 3 consecutive days - we will then backdate the claim to the first day they were absent from work due to illness or injury.
  • Simple pricing structure
    This plan is priced so neither occupation nor smoker status has an impact on the premiums paid.
  • Tax free lump sum
    A proportion of the premium costs are invested with the aim of providing a small, tax free lump sum when the policy finishes. A nice little bonus on top of the reassurance of quality income protection cover.
