Healthy boost for insurance sales

IFAs claim that the January health boom is doing wonders for insurance business.

Manchester-based IFA Hacker Young says attention to health has focussed people&#39s attention on insurance such as critical illness, life insurance and income protection cover.

Harvey Rosenfield, an IFA at Hacker Young, says: “There is certainly more interest in health insurance and life insurance at this time of year as more people check their financial health as well as their physical health.

“When choosing a scheme it is vital that you pick the best one suited for your needs. Different people require different levels of services and benefits from their monthly outlays. Getting lumped with the wrong cover could be disastrous. Different kinds of cover available include critical illness, life insurance and income.”

Rosenfield says that life insurance is vital to ensure people have at least got their mortgage and other loans covered should they die prematurely.
