Zurich launches group life assurance for partners

Zurich has launched a group life assurance product for employees’ partners.

The product includes:

  • Flexibility for the employer to set the value and number of benefit steps, up to a maximum benefit of £250,000.
  • A simple member acceptance process that operates on a short application form.
  • Cover up to age 75.

Nick Homer (pictured), group protection manager at Zurich, said: “Often the focus of people’s financial planning is around the family’s main bread winner.

“But, in today’s society, there is an increasing need for additional financial support if a spouse or partner were to die, particularly when the employee has young children or financial dependants.”
