NEW for 2024! Wiltshire Friendly – Personal Income Protection

Personal Income Protection on an individual plan basis, whether you are employed or self-employed, access to terms and pricing only associated with this scheme.

Somerset Chamber of Commerce has worked with Wiltshire Friendly in setting up this benefit for its members, who can now join this “affinity” income protection scheme.

Why should I consider insuring my income?
No one chooses to be ill or to get injured and then be off work. If it does happen to you, you want to be thinking of getting better and not worrying about who will pay the bills if you are not getting paid.

What is Income Protection?

* It covers an agreed amount of your income if you are unable to work due to illness or injury and consequently lose income.
* It pays out for a set period of time, or until you return to work, whichever is sooner.
* There is a ‘waiting period’ before the benefit payment starts, which you choose to meet your budget.

How do I know if it’s right for me?

You can access the plan details from Wiltshire Friendly’s website here.

You can also take advice from Tony Pizii, at Key Person Insurance Hub. Tony is qualified to give protection advice, across the whole of the provider market, so will advise you on the right product to meet your personal situation and requirements.

To find out more and to contact Tony please use the following contact request form

(Please note: All details provided on the contact form will be shared with Tony at Key Person Insurance Hub who will be in contact with you directly)

Important note: Wiltshire Friendly is a product provider only and therefore recommends you take advice from a financial adviser as to the suitability of the plan in meeting your income protection requirements.
