Scot prov now accepts Icob business past age 70

Scottish Provident has announced it will now accept term protection business maturing after age 70 and scoping more than 10 years from both Cob and Icob authorised intermediaries.

The Age 70 rule was abolished on June 6 2007. The FSA Board voted to scrap the rule, which restricted the sale of policies maturing beyond age 70 to Cob advisers, in April this year.

Providers and advisers had been pushing for this move for sometime as they felt the Age 70 rule was outdated in a society where people are living longer and retiring later.
