Family Income Benefit – A cost-effective alternative – Royal London

Family Income Benefit (FIB) is a cheap and easy way for clients to provide their families with an income rather than a lump sum if they die. It can be especially attractive for clients with young families as they might want cover to run until their children are grown up. This income could be used to meet everyday expenses or to pay for specific ongoing expenses such as school or university fees, protect maintenance payments for the divorced and also, for many families who are privately renting, FIB is perfect to safeguard those rental commitments. Join us as we take a look at this low-cost protection solution and share some simple yet effective opportunities for you to bring FIB to life with your clients.

  • Be able to describe the main features of a Family Income Policy.
  • Have a clearer understanding of the types of clients who would benefit from a Family Income Benefit Policy and how to position this.
