Asteron Lifeguard® May 2009 update

Asteron Lifeguard® isn’t just life insurance. It’s protection for your income, debts and lifestyle. So if you ever get sick or injured, you’ve got a financial back-up plan for your family.

Our Asteron Lifeguard® product range has just been updated to provide you with new benefits and features.

For newly qualified professionals - solicitors and accountants

If you have recently joined the profession as a solicitor or accountant (Chartered Accountant or Certified Practising Accountant) we’ve made obtaining Asteron Lifeguard® cover* even easier. Now you don’t need to provide evidence of your current earnings, which can sometimes be a challenge when starting out in a new career. The cover is available if you have recently joined the profession straight from completing studies or if you have worked up to 5 years in the profession.

* Subject to applicable eligibility rules and minimum amount of cover in an Asteron Lifeguard® policy. Mandatory financial evidence waived but the application is subject to underwriting and disclosures on personal statement.

For newly qualified medical professionals

Asteron Lifeguard® also offers protection for newly qualified medical professionals such as doctors, dentists, pharmacists and optometrists, who have recently joined the profession from completing studies or worked up to 5 years in the profession. Now you don’t need to provide evidence of your current earnings, which sometimes can be a challenge when starting out in a career.

And for newly qualified doctors and dentists Asteron Lifeguard® offers protection against the risk of occupationally acquired blood-borne diseases including HIV and Hep B & C.

* Subject to applicable eligibility rules and minimum amount of cover in an Asteron Lifeguard® policy. Mandatory financial evidence waived but the application is subject to underwriting and disclosures on personal statement.
