Aviva launches new group protection

clock

Aviva has launched a new group protection proposition offering policy holders and members a full suite of workplace products and services following its merger with Friends Life.

Under the scheme, employees will be offered cover when they have been previously diagnosed with cancer on both the critical illness and cancer cover products. 

The proposition is available to existing customers of both Aviva and Friends Life at the end of their rate guarantee period. Existing customers of both companies will continue on their current terms and conditions until their next rate review date.

The proposition also includes enhancements to the existing critical illness definitions.

Aviva will also offer added services including access to support service RedArc and specialist second opinion service Best Doctors,

The Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), as part of the income protection product, now offers up to eight face to face counselling sessions and is available to all of a policy holder's insured and non-insured employees.

The scheme also includes Flex-pertiseTM, which provides a comprehensive range of group protection products that can be incorporated into a flexible benefit package.

Members will be able to get discounts on a range of Aviva's general insurance products such as home, travel and car insurance.

Steve Bridger, managing director, group protection at Aviva (pictured), said:"We want to offer our clients and members the best possible security and support when they need it most and the proposition we have created does exactly that.

"We've taken a good look at the market and adapted our products to create a better fit with people's lives. More and more people are surviving cancer and then going back to work and it was important to recognise that. I'm really pleased we can now offer cover to people who have previously been diagnosed with the illness."
