We selected AIG Life following a year-long search for a flexible insurer that would allow our customers to buy insurance in a way and at a time best suited to them.
Customers can buy these protection products at any of the Yorkshire’s branches following a meeting with their mortgage adviser, or by telephone or online. The new application process should take less than 15 minutes to complete and most customers will be asked just 11 underwriting questions.
Russ Hargreaves, Senior Relationship Manager at Yorkshire Building Society said:
“It’s really important that customers consider taking out life or critical illness cover, especially when they are taking on such a big financial commitment as a mortgage, so we’re delighted to offer this new service with AIG Life.
We have been very impressed by AIG Life’s flexibility and the way they have worked with us to create an accessible service that we feel will be well-suited to our customers.
It was important for us to get the right insurance products at an affordable price available in ways that our customers want. We believe working with AIG Life reflects that and we hope it will enable customers to enjoy life knowing we have options available to give them the financial protection they wish.”
Nicola Dryden, Partnerships Director at AIG Life, added:
“Our products focus on providing customers with affordable, quality solutions that are easy to understand and simple to quote and apply for. We want to give customers real peace of mind by enabling them to access the financial protection they need, especially when you consider life event triggers like buying a house. A modern and customer centric journey means that the majority of customers will now be provided immediate terms in less than 15 minutes, online or in branch.”
