Income Protection

Suitability wording

Below are the suitability letter builders for Income Protection and Personal Sick Pay. For other cover, please go to the Life Protection, or Life and Critical Illness suitability builder.

You are responsible for creating a suitable document which is based on your client’s individual circumstances. We've designed our paragraphs as ‘base text’, which you can develop to suit your client’s individual circumstances. If you choose to use any of the text, you are responsible for ensuring that your regulatory requirements are met.

LV= has taken care to ensure the accuracy of the information at the time of issue but does not accept liability resulting from your use of it.
