Personal Protection Insurance

personal protection insurance

Getting on the property ladder is a life-long commitment. The financial protection offered by insurance could be a valuable safety net if you or a loved one suffer a serious illness.

Here at Bliss Financial, we take great pride in ensuring that our clients and their family are protected in the areas that matter to them most. Protection is not an easy subject to talk about, but it’s so important to us that our clients know what is available to them.

We can guide you towards the right insurance based on your personal circumstances. We have access to the whole insurance market, so we can find you the most suitable policies with the best premiums. Our job is to make sure you are covered for all of life’s pitfalls and be there should you ever come to make a claim.

What is personal protection?

Buying your new home is a happy exciting time. However, it is imperative to take out personal protection cover to guarantee you can remain in your home, no matter what life throws at you down the line.

It is essential that you consider the situation you would be in if the worst happened:

  • Could you afford to remain in your home if your partner passed away?
  • Where would your income come from if you fell seriously ill and were unable to work?
  • If you fell ill and couldn’t work, what would you and your family have to give up in order to pay your bills? What additional costs would you face? Would you have to change your lifestyle? What savings would you have to make? How would that make you and your family feel?
  • What would happen if you were unable to return to work due to terminal illness, with no sick pay from your employer?

Having adequate protection is key and goes hand in hand with the responsibility of being a homeowner. If the worst was to happen, you and your family will benefit from either a lump sum or monthly payments, to replace the loss of salary.

When should I get protection insurance?

Protection insurance should be a consideration throughout your life and there is no wrong time to discuss it. The premiums on protection policies do tend to be less the younger you are, so with that in mind, we recommend you consider it as soon as you take on life’s big responsibilities, such as owning your own home and starting a family. An independent financial adviser, such as Bliss, can assess what is important to you and walk you through your options, whether that’s joint life cover, income protection, critical illness cover or unemployment cover.

What types of protection insurance policies are there?

Here at Bliss Financial Solutions, we can advise you on all the areas of protection available and, together, we can arrange suitable policies to ensure you are covered in all eventualities.

Life cover

Life insurance cover provides protection in the event of you or your partner passing away, in the form of either a tax-free lump sum or a regular income. We recommend a joint life policy for partners, but individual life cover is also an option.

Critical Illness Cover

Critical illness cover provides protection in the event you are diagnosed with a critical illness, terminal illness or injury that prevents you from working. The policy pays out in the form of a lump sum or regular income. The types of illnesses will be specified in the cover and usually include a heart attack or stroke, and terminal illness such as cancer. As well as cover for illness, this type of policy also includes serious injury. Critical illness cover can also include children, so it is important to consider if you have a family.

Income Protection Insurance

Income protection insurance provides replacement monthly income in the event you are unable to work due to being ill or injured. Following a claim there will be a waiting period (or ‘deferred period’) then the income protection policy will pay out. This provides you with a crucial source of income after sick pay from your employer stops.

If you do not receive sick pay from your employer, then you may be entitled to statutory sick pay, however, this is a nominal weekly amount. This type of policy is also applicable if you are self-employed, providing peace of mind that money is not an issue if you are unable to work. Income protection insurance doesn’t cover the full amount of your salaried earnings. It usually covers around 60% of your annual income, but it depends on the cover amount agreed in your policy.

Accident and Sickness Insurance

Accident and sickness insurance will provide you with either a tax-free lump sum or monthly income in the event of you being incapacitated by an accident or sickness.

Family Income Benefit Insurance

Family income benefit insurance provides a replacement monthly income in the event of death, or diagnosis of a specified critical illness.

Why choose Bliss Financial for your personal protection insurance?

Here at Bliss Financial, we have many years of experience in providing advice on all aspects of personal protection, including life insurance, income protection insurance and critical illness cover. Our priority is to ensure that you have peace of mind as you embark on a new mortgage. That includes protection on your mortgage repayments, but also any other areas that are specifically important to you.

We take pride in working to your budget and ensuring that the premiums are competitive and comfortable. In the event that you need to make a claim, we are with you each step of the way offering guidance and support.

Frequently Asked Questions

What information do I need to provide for a quote?

Usually, your adviser will ask you for information about your health and lifestyle including your medical history and smoker status. This will allow them to produce a quote which is specific to you and will give a true reflection on cost.

How do you know what protection insurance you need?

We would recommend that you take advice from a suitably qualified adviser who can take into account your personal circumstances and ensure that you have cover which is specific to your needs in place. An adviser will also discuss costs and your health to establish the best cover for you.

Will my home insurance policy protect me personally?

Your home insurance policy will only provide cover for your buildings and contents rather than any personal protection.

What should I think about when choosing insurance cover?

When choosing cover you should consider your needs and the needs of your family. Who do you want to financially protect? What do you feel needs to be covered and who needs to benefit from any potential payouts? If you have a partner, you should consider joint life cover.

What age does life insurance stop?

When it comes to life insurance, the cover amount and policy term can be tailored to your specific needs. Usually, life insurance is available once you reach the age of 18.

Is payment protection the same as income protection?

No, payment protection is different to income protection. Income protection cover provides a payout in the event of loss of salary due to illness. This will help you to keep up with your mortgage, loan repayments and any other debts. Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) covers repayments of a specific debt, such as a bank loan or credit card.

As with all insurance policies, conditions and exclusions will apply.

Our Mortgage & Protection Services


Selected from a number online because they stated that they have experience working with people from the military. This was essential given how moving on assignment often can be a negative for many banks when it comes to lending. Amanda was excellent and the process was swift and easy. We had planned to visit face to face but the process was just as high quality over zoom and phone.
Richard S.
Amanda is great, everything was explained clearly and always responsive to queries, would highly recommend.
Pavitar P.
This is my second time remortgaging through Bliss and Amanda. The service provided has made my life stress free and Amanda was thorough with her research into what deal and term would be best for me based on economic uncertainty and where I am atthis point of my life.I'd not use any other mortgage broker ✨
Harriet L.

We have used Amanda for many years. She knows exactly what she is talking about and offers the best advice. I cant recommend Amanda enough if you're thinking of getting a mortgage or going through a Re-Mortgage. She reassured us throughout the whole process and was in touch every step of the way. Thank you Amanda, here's to many more years.

Amanda was amazingly helpful and made the whole process hassle free. Even when I changed my mind a few times nothing was a problem and the end result was exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend Amanda and the team
Atha D.
We used Amanda a few years ago for our first mortgage. She was an absolute hero for us. She sat us down and explained everything thoroughly putting all out worries at ease as first time buyers. We had issues with our chain which meant our mortgage offer lapsed and Amanda was there every step of the way right through to the day we moved in. Due to remortgage in the next year or so and I will always go back to Amanda.

Amanda was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. She helped me secure my first mortgage and also helped with organising the best deals on life and home insurance for my house. Would 100% recommend for anyone needing financial services of any kind!
Nathan C.
We specifically selected Bliss as financial advisors for our mortgage, as we'd read great reviews from other first time buyers. Amanda was so welcoming and helpful, introducing us to the whole process. We actually went to her thinking we were fish out of water, and wanting to but not expecting to but for a few years, just wanting to get our heads around it. However everything felt easy, quick and well explained and we were accepted for a within approx 2 months of starting our search. Amanda has been amazing throughout the entire process - even personalising the way she presented documents to us to suit our styles (me, needing to talk everything out and my partner more graphs and charts!). Evening appointments were organised to work around our work schedules. She was in constant communication with all stakeholders, chasing things up for us and since moving, also supporting with insurances. I'd highly recommend Bliss, and specifically Amanda for any financial advisory services however particularly first time buyers, as no question feels like a silly question. For future purchases, selling, and any other financial services - we will definitely return to Bliss.

Amanda helped us to secure our first mortgage. She was on hand for support all the way through the process and very helpful in explaining things in a more simple way to help us to understand. She kept in contact with us regularly throughout the process and really made us feel at ease. We cannot thank Amanda enough for her support and help.

I came across Bliss financial solutions by google search when desperately trying to find a mortgage advisor who could do the impossible (secure a DiP quickly, that met my difficult short term self employment circumstances).Amanda from Bliss has been a pleasure to work with. The perfect balance of professional and friendly, incredibly organised and certainly not deterred by a challenge. I’m really grateful for the time and effort she put into my case to allow me to secure the house I wanted within the mandated timeframe. Thank you so much Amanda and Bliss for allowing us to get our new home 💜

We have recently used Amy at Bliss to help us get a mortgage. After having a stressful time at high street banks and other mortgage brokers, we contacted Amy for help. Amy was absolutely excellent and the work she does is outstanding. Amy went above and beyond and managed to find us a mortgage in a matter of days. Throughout the whole process Amy kept us up to date and managed the mortgage application seamlessly despite a stressful time with other companies. I would like to express my many thanks to Amy and the team at Bliss for being so excellent and thanks to them we now have the keys to our new home.

We used Bliss to re morgage our property. Amy was absolutely fantastic, made everything feel really easy, she was clear in all her explanations, open and honest with setting expectations, and really knowledgeable. The whole process was really smooth. We also discussed life insurance which was something of a priority giving we had just had a little boy recently. Amazing service. Would highly recommend. We will definitely be using again for any future mortgage or insurance needs.

Michael C.
Efficient and friendly. The team helped source the most appropriate mortgage for us at a very busy and pressured time for interest rates and timeframes. They were very helpful in expediting the completion when our solicitors were holding up proceedings. The little gift afterwards was much appreciated also. Would recommend.
Kirsty T.
Bliss Financials was a vital part of my journey to home ownership in the UK. They always gave personalized yet professional advice and were always accessible and responsive all through the process. They were very thorough, transparent and client centered; offered and discussed all the available options to enable me make an informed choice. I would totally and wholeheartedly recommend their services and I am very grateful to Amy who handled most of the process as well as Amanda and Sophie. Great team/firm!

I would like to praise the excellent service of the Bliss Financial Solutions LTD.I have a brilliant experience with this company. I was buying a house for the first time and Bliss Financial advised me on every step of the process (mortgage, insurance), offering me suitable options that I could choose from. I always got great offers and still was in control.All members of the team (Amy, Sophie, Amanda) are brilliant, very professional, friendly and responsive.I am very grateful to Amy (my consultant) as she did help me very much throughout the process, nothing was a problem,I received responses straight away and she also prompted other parties to act swiftly (lender, insurance companies, solicitor, etc.).If I need mortgage or insurance in future, I will definitely ask Bliss Financial for help again.
Michal P.
I am now on my second mortgage which was arranged using Bliss. What an outstanding service. From start to finish the Bliss team were great in answering queries that I had. They even pushed to get me an extension to my offer seeing me secure a great rate before the recent rises. This certainly helped me secure my dream home. I would recommend Bliss to anyone who is after a professional and personable mortgage advisor.
Amanda worked extremely hard and was really efficient is securing a fixed deal for me at a time when rates were being removed across the board. I would recommend them to anyone.
Andrew M.
Excellent from start to finish. Every decision and option were made clear to us about the implications and any questions we had were answered in a timely manner, making remortgaging easier than I imagined it would be. Thank you to Bliss Financial Solutions for excellent service and attention to personal details that really made us feel like our priorities were put first. We will use again at our next remortgage and would recommend to anyone.

Ken W.
Amy has been amazing from the start of our process as first time buyers until completion. We had a few delays along the way due to waiting on a new build but Any was there to guide us through every step of the way to help us rearrange another mortgage and kept us regularly updated on the process. I have already recommended her to friends and family and wouldn’t hesitate to use her again when we remortgage.
