Drewberry Helps Blogger Mrs Mummypenny Set Up Income Protection

Lynn James is a well-known, well-respected and award-winning personal finance blogger who writes under the name Mrs Mummypenny. She lives in Hertfordshire with her three boys.

When she came to Drewberry, despite being self-employed she had no protection in place should she be too ill to work, something we find is all-too-common among our self-employed clients.

This is Lynn’s story, and how Drewberry helped provide peace of mind…

Transcript

I write about personal finance made simple. I often relate it back to my experience, so either things that I’ve made a mistake with or things that I’ve done well. I tell a story about them and I relate it to a solution with a product or service.

Until very recently I didn’t have any Income Protection insurance. As fate would have it there was a big award show called The Headline Money Awards. I went along and met the team from Drewberry. We had a conversation about my insurance, which was really embarrassing.

At that point I had car insurance and I’ve got home insurance but that’s about it. We just sort of talked about Income Protection insurance. Maybe it’s something I should have.

If I get a disease or I can’t work my income just stops. That means I lose the house and I can’t afford to feed my children.

And when you actually put it into perspective of how it impacts your children that’s when you’re like oh my gosh I need to sort this out.

We talked about this and Tom Connor, who’s one of the directors of Drewberry, said well that’s not going to cost you as much as you think. So why don’t we do a quote and see if we can sort you out.

It was really quick when the insurance adviser put all my details into the system. It just came back straight away with an accept. We set up the policy and there was no extra information required, like going to the doctors or anything. I am now officially protected for my income.

I just feel incredibly reassured and happy that I will be fine no matter what happens. And as will my children.

Why Speak to Us…

We started Drewberry because we were tired of being treated like a number and not getting the service we all deserve when it comes to things as important as protecting our health and our finances. Below are just a few reasons why it makes sense to let us help.

  • There is no fee for our service
  • We are independent and impartial
    Drewberry isn’t tied to any insurance company, so we can provide completely impartial advice to make sure you get the most appropriate policy based solely on your needs.
  • We’ve got bargaining power on our side
    This allows us to negotiate better premiums for you than you going direct yourself.
  • You’ll speak to a dedicated expert from start to finish
    You will speak to a named expert with a direct telephone and email. No more automated machines and no more being sent from pillar to post – you’ll have someone to speak to who knows you.
  • Benefit from our 5-star service
    We pride ourselves on providing a 5-star service, as can be seen from our 2850 and growing independent client reviews rating us at 4.92 / 5.
  • Gain the protection of regulated advice
    You are protected. Where we provide a regulated advice service we are responsible for the policy we set-up for you. Doing it yourself or going direct to an insurer won’t provide this protection, so you won’t benefit from these securities.
  • Claims support when you need it the most
    You have support should you need to make a claim. The most important thing when it comes to insurance is that claims are paid and quickly. We are here to support you during the claims process and make sure it’s as smooth and stress free as possible.

I had a great experience with Drewberry, they have a lot of knowledge and expertise with life insurance and income protection and were able to advise me and arrange suitable products. Highly recommend.
