Friends Provident International’s International Protector offers international professional and expats peace of mind in the event that unplanned problems occur.
It is a product that can be tailored to suit individual needs.
The options are:
- International life insurance
- International life or earlier critical illness cover and
- International critical illness cover
You also have the choice of level or decreasing term assurance depending on your circumstances.
Level term insurance may be right for protecting your loved ones in the event of your death and decreasing term may pay off a tapering liability such as a mortgage in the event of an unplanned occurrence.
All the normal expat life insurance restrictions apply to this plan (such as territoriality changes, hazardous sports exclusions, cancellation of cover if premiums are unpaid or voiding if inaccurate information is provided).
It is important that professional, independent advice is sought when buying international insurance.
Given the high level of commission its sale can produce for advisers, we recommend advice is sought from an independent adviser who charges a fee for the advice given, and rebates you the commission so you have the peace of mind that no conflict of interest exists.
