Goodfellows offers 20% protection commission

Specialist underwriting agency Goodfellows is offering a disability

protection package paying 20 per cent commission.

Disability Safe aims to provide an “all needs covered” disability package

covering accidental death, income protec- tion and permanent disability.

Goodfellows says the 20 per cent commission level compares favourably

with equivalent products which pay 12 per cent.

The company says Lloyd&#39s is underwriting the product so it can cut admin costs.

Goodfellows says it is aim- ing to pass these savings on to consumers in

terms of “realistic premiums” and to intermediaries.

Cover is available on an ind ividual or group basis with- out the need for

medical und- erwriting.

Managing partner Simon Burgess says: “The aim is to give clients peace of

mind during a major health crisis.”
