Friends Provident has launched an online income protection quote service.
Advisers can now quote and produce an illustration for individual income protection and houseperson’s cover through the company’s website.
Friends says income protection quotes can be produced on a level or increasing basis, with the option to choose a weekly benefit amount or total premium figure.
Quotes incorporating multiple deferred periods can also be produced and the insurer provides a calculator to help advisers estimate their clients’ shortfall based on salary and circumstances.
Advisers can print the illustration, save the quote for retrieval later or proceed straight to the online application form, which is pre-populated with the client’s details.
Friends Provident head of ebusiness Dave Mace says: “This new development will make life easier for advisers and enhance the service they can offer their clients through the provision of a quick and efficient end-to-end online process.”
