We are delighted to have access to Met Life’s accidental protection policy called EverydayProtect.
This policy is not suitable for everyone, but it may suit someone that cannot secure other types of protection that we can advise on.
This blog explains some of the key benefits of the Met Life EverydayProtect policy.
Met Life Accident Cover: Broken Bones
It pays a lump sum in the event of specific bones being broken* (some categorising as major with a higher pay-out, and some categorising as minor with a lower pay-out).
*not all bones are covered.
Met Life Accident Cover: UK Hospital Stays
It pays a lump sum per 24 hour admission to a UK hospital due to an accident. Sickness is also covered after the policy is held for 12 months.
Met Life Accident Cover: Accidental Permanent Injury
It pays a lump sum in the event of a specific accidental permanent injury, each type paying out a different amount, for example blindness, deafness, third-degree burns and paralysis of limbs.
Total Permanent Disablement
It pays a lump sum in the event of being unable to look after yourself ever again (bodily injury only).
It pays a lump sum in the event of accidental death.
If this event occurs within the first 12 months of the policy period, the policy premiums will be refunded. If the event occurs after the first 12 months it pays a defined lump sum payment.
Is EverydayProtect expensive?
There are 5 levels of cover. The higher the level, the higher the monthly premium and the higher the level of benefit you can receive in the event of a successful claim. Met Life have designed their cover this way to ensure that there is an option to suit every budget.
Why should you choose this cover?
This policy offers guaranteed acceptance for everyone. It does not require any medical underwriting. This means that no matter what your medical conditions are, if you are struggling to be accepted for other types of cover, you can secure an element of protection with Met Life.
This policy type is a ‘pure protection’ product and has no cash-in value at any time. If you stop paying the required premiums, the cover will lapse. The plan may have other limitations & exclusions. We will explain the key facts to you before proceeding.
