Premiums start from £2.20 per £100 of monthly benefit for accident, sickness and unemployment cover and the product is aimed at younger borrowers and first-time buyers.

The policy also has a back-to-work support initiative which includes help with writing CV’s, employment workshops and Jobseeker and health guides.

Our new policy is benefits rather than costs led.”
