Their main products for individuals are personal and mortgage protection. Their personal protection plan is designed to help you and your family cope with distressing and unexpected circumstances such as terminal illness and death which can place a huge financial burden upon everyone as well as the existing emotional turmoil. Their mortgage protection allows you to choose a level of coverage that will help you pay off all or part of your mortgage in the event of an accident preventing you from working.
For businesses, there is a key person protection plan which gives a company financial security if an employee of critical importance to its economic health suddenly passes away. The share purchase protection option allows other board members to purchase the stake of a terminally ill co-owner of a business to ensure that the company remains in their control.
AEGON protection is primarily an IFA site which means that members of the general public cannot avail of their services. However, there is the possibility of dealing with their Direct option which does allow anyone to purchase their range of products but there is no advice service for those who purchase AEGON products directly at this point in time.
