"Always seemed happy to help with any questions I had regarding my policy, and were great when amendments needed to be made"

Alex from Bristol

The service I received from 'Your life protected' was excellent. I have T1 prostate cancer and they were able to find life insurance at a very good price. I was impressed with the relatively short time it took to get the policy implemented. Most importantly Mike analysed my situation and came up with the correct policy for my needs. He identified an underwriter who would provide cover at an early stage so there was no indecision or postponement of a decision. He also kept me aware of progress on the application which was very reassuring.
