Friendly in times of need

There's little point in having Income Protection if it doesn't pay out when you need it which is why we focus on paying as many claims for our members as possible. We pride ourselves on our consistently high claims payment track record - 96.7% over the last 12 years and 92.4% in 2017. We hope it feels good knowing your covered with a friendly insurance provider you can trust.


Steve's British Friendly Experience

This is an inspiring story of Steve, a British Friendly member, in his battle against Pancreatic cancer. Steve's story is a powerful reminder of the valuable benefits available to you through our discretionary Mutual Benefits programme. Mutual Benefits is our way of giving back to you for being a member and supporting you in sickness and in health.
