The new disability discrimination act could provide is IFAs many sales opportunities according to income protection specialists Unum.
Section 21 of the act comes into force today, making it illegal for goods and services suppliers to discriminate against disabled people.
Unum says IFAs could seize the opportunity to provide disabled people with relevant products such as income protection.
Unum marketing manager Nick Lomas says: "Service providers such as IFAs must make reasonable adjustments to any practice, policy or procedure that makes it impossible or unreasonably difficult for a disabled person to make use of the service provided.
"Unum has ensured all of its documents can be made available in Braille or large print or on tapes.
"An IFA who fully embraces section 21 will benefit from being able to attract disabled clients, as well as helping employers deal with disability in a responsible and structured way."
