As a mutual with many years of experience in helping families and their finances, you can turn to us when life gets difficult.

Those little extras that make all the difference - for free

If you’ve taken out an Over 50s plan with us – we’ve got a little extra support for you that could make all the difference.

You may need a bit of guidance or advice following a bereavement, emotional support to help deal with a terminal illness, or some practical information if you or someone in your family needs specialist care.

An independent expert can often make a big difference at a time of need. This is why we give our customers access to a range of support services from trusted providers at no additional cost.
