Here at Marc Catry, we want to help you protect your world. Whether its life assurance, cover if you fall critically ill or lose employment, our insurance and mortgage adviser in Tamworth can help provide advice on the best protection plans for you.
Life Assurance is the basic form of life insurance, and therefore usually cheaper.
It covers you for a fixed period of time and pays out a one-off lump sum if you should die during the policy term.
With many of the term insurance policies, you can add additional options such as critical illness cover. If you did add critical illness cover, the plan would pay on diagnosis of a qualifying critical illness, or if you died during the term of the policy.
Life assurance is designed for those wish to leave a lump sum to love ones in the event of their death within a specified time period.
Term assurance can give your family financial protection in the event of a tragedy, and is particularly important if you have young children or dependents.
The pay-out can be used to cover a mortgage or other loan so that your family is protected from having to repay the debt if the main breadwinner has passed away.
As independent mortgage advisors in Tamworth and the surrounding areas, we can help you to find the plan that best suits your needs.
A critical illness plan will pay out a lump sum on the diagnosis of a qualifying illness. This is designed to help cover the costs of living if employment is missed. It is often added to life assurance policies as an additional benefit.
Designed for individuals or families who want a lump sum if diagnosed with a serious illness. This lump sum could be used to repay a loan, mortgage, or pay for time off work. It could even be used to pay for any necessary alterations to your home due to disability resulting from illness.
Of course, the quality of the cover does vary between insurance companies. Since we are an independent mortgage adviser in Tamworth, we can find a critical illness plan that best suits your needs.
Income protection will pay out regular income if you are unable to work due to accident or illness.
These plans will continue to pay out as long as you are unable to return to work, lasting until the end of the date of the policy, which tends to be normal retirement age.
Income protection is often seen as a foundation of any financial planning, since it is likely that other protection plans would have to be given up without sufficient income to cover them.
Anyone who is working, either employed or self-employed.
It is highly unlikely that your employers sick pay will last longer than twelve months, so having ongoing protection is vital. Plans can be adapted to fit with any existing protection plans you have.
As an independent financial adviser in Tamworth, with a deep knowledge of the income protection market, we can help you find the plan best suited to you.

Miss W has been a client of mine for over 9 years. Unfortunately, the past few years have been and extremely trying time for her and her family, firstly with the loss of her 21 year old daughter in a car accident, and then suffering from a stroke in June 2012 at the age of just 41.
This resulted in a bleed on the brain and a short stay in hospital, thankfully my client is expected to make a full recovery.
Fortunately, Miss W agreed with the protection advice I gave her in 2007 and took out a mortgage protection, life & critical illness policy, after successfully submitting a claim Miss W received £127,688 from Legal and General in August 2012.
" After my recent experience I really can't stress the importance of protecting your home and family, I would never have submitted the claim form because I'd forgotten I had this cover. I will never be able to thank Marc enough for helping me, If anyone is thinking of reviewing their circumstances, I would recommend Marc Catry without hesitation " Miss S W.
