Webline deal gives access to special risks service

Webline is providing intermediaries with access to special risk service The Insurance Helpline in conjunction with Totally Insured Group.

The deal enables brokers to refer potentially complex high-risk cases to TIG, which will find the best product for the client.

Webline client services and operations director Matt Humphrey says Association of British Insurers’ statistics show that over 30 per cent of recent life insurance applications in the UK have been rated or declined.

He says more than one million people have been affected but the number will grow.

Humphrey says: “Access to The Insurance Helpline via Webline has now given a clear direction for advisers to help aid the laborious task.”

Totally Insured Group sales and marketing director Andrew Norman says: “Totally Insured Group is excited to be offering this new adviser solution in conjunction with Webline. From an adviser’s point of view, the service will make the process of trying to place these special cases much simpler.”

TIG has already signed deals this year with IFA networks Only Finance and In Partnership to use The Insurance Helpline.
