Friends Life has made improvements to its maximum benefit calculator facility on its quotation platform to help advisers calculate income protection requirements for clients.
Advisers can now generate their client's maximum benefit by entering their gross annual salary and any other income, alongside their annualised net sick pay figure.
Friends Life said the upgrade also allows advisers to clearly see how much income benefit their clients are eligible for, while they receive sick pay and when these payments cease.
Louise Colley, managing director of protection at Aviva, said: "Making the process of applying for protection easier and clearer for both advisers and their clients is one of Aviva's key steps towards improving the level of protection in the UK.
"These enhancements to the benefit calculator will make offering high quality protection cover through Protect+ a much more straight-forward and positive experience for advisers."
The improvement to the maximum benefit calculator follow benefit enhancements to Friends Life's Protect+ income protection proposition announced earlier this month.
Aviva completed its acquisition of Friends Life in this year in a deal worth £5.6bn.
