What is Waiver Of Premiums?

If you are not in a high-risk occupation you can choose to have Waiver Of Premium cover when you apply for your Plan. This pays your premiums if you are unable to work due to incapacity. So, you can continue to cover yourself whilst you recover.

If you choose this cover, we’ll pay your premiums after six months of incapacity and continue to pay them until the first of these events: you recover and are no longer incapacitated, your 65th birthday, your cover ends or should you die.

What is a level or decreasing term?

Depending on how you are repaying your mortgage you can choose to have your cover on a level (same amount throughout) or decreasing (pay less as the mortgage reduces) basis.

If you choose level cover the amount of your benefit will remain the same throughout the term of your Plan. You should normally consider this option if you have an interest only mortgage.

If you choose decreasing cover the amount of your benefit will reduce each year during the term of your Plan. You should normally consider this option if you are repaying your mortgage by regular instalment over the loan period.

DOING MORE FOR YOU

And those you love

 

Supporting you after a claim

You can’t emotionally prepare yourself to cope with a life-limiting illness and there is no manual on how to deal with the loss of a loved one. Whilst we can’t change these events, our protection products offer a Peace of Mind service.

This specialist advice service is staffed by experienced nurses who are on hand to provide expert help and guidance should the worse happen. Additionally a partner and children have access to bereavement counselling service, with up to six sessions at no additional cost.

 

Free will writing service

You can protect your family further with free personalised online document preparation, where you can create a Will, Power of Attorney, and healthcare directives from the comfort of your own home.

As a member you will have access to this and additional member benefits, such as giving back to the community you live in through granting applications, joining or even organising Family Fun events, as well as the option for you or your children to apply for a Scholarship and more.

 

The Peace of Mind service and Foresters member benefits are not regulated and non-contractual nor are they part of the Protection Plan Terms and Conditions. They may be subject to specific eligibility requirements, and they may be amended or withdrawn at any time without notice.
