London & Country Mortgages, the UK’s leading fee free mortgage and protection broker are looking to educate consumers about the importance of life insurance.

The protection gap in Britain is often talked about with various reasons being given for consumer s not taking this important cover. These include life insurance is too expensive, state benefits will be enough and that it is just not necessary as savings will cover any expense or loss of income. The stark reality is that people just don’t think anything will happen to them.

It appears there is poor understanding about the chance of having a serious illness, being made redundant or having an unexpected bereavement in a family. L&C, the UK’s leading fee free mortgage and protection broker are looking to educate consumers about the importance of life insurance, critical illness cover and income protection through a series of short video films. The first, Why you should protect your mortgage talks about the risks and how these may be mitigated with the right cover in place.
