COVER IS A LIFELINE FOR TWO CUSTOMERS

Should anything happen to you in the future, you’ll want to know that your loved ones are financially secure.

We interviewed two women who found a financial lifeline in the Life Cover and Protection products when their lives were suddenly turned upside down.

“Immense relief” for injured horse lover

Horse lover Victoria was critically injured when helping a friend break in a young horse. “I was completely immobilised for six weeks”, she recalls. “The realisation that I wouldn’t be able to work was absolutely terrifying.” 
 
Thankfully, just months before the accident, Victoria’s local NFU Mutual Financial Adviser had advised her to take out Income Protection. “Without it, we probably would have had to sell our home. The relief when it was confirmed my claim was accepted was immense,” says Victoria. 
 
She adds: “My recovery was a lot quicker than I had anticipated, which was down to the intensive physiotherapy I received as part of my policy. There is no way I could have ever afforded this myself.” 

“Life changing” protection for mother of four

Keen to plan for the future for her four children, Clare and her husband were having an ‘organising year’. This included speaking to an NFU Mutual Financial Adviser, who recommended they both take out Life insurance and Critical Illness cover with our partner insurance company AIG.  
 
Soon after, Clare received a devastating breast cancer diagnosis. Which was a great shock, but she was relieved to know her Critical illness cover was able to provide a £80,000 lump sum.

“As I am self-employed, I felt a huge burden had been lifted and it meant that I did not have to try to work during treatment. We were so touched that our Financial Adviser took the time to work with us to get the right cover – we couldn’t thank NFU Mutual enough for going above and beyond”, she says. “It was truly life-changing”. 
 
As was the case for Victoria and Clare, Life, Critical Illness and Income Protection products can make a huge difference for you and your family should you need to make a claim.
