Do not take income protection from this company as they will find excuses not to pay you. Be warned that this company is a scam.

Hello Sadat, Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. I'm sorry to hear that you have been left disappointed following your experience with us. I can assure you that our Income Protection is there to help members when they need it and when all terms are met. Last year alone, we paid out 95% of Income Protection claims, which is a great result for our members. Each claim is reviewed and managed on an individual basis. While it looks like we have been unable to help you this time, we will be happy to discuss your case further with you if you require any more information. You can reach us on 0800 526 249 or via email to Kind regards, Melissa Shepherds Friendly
Had a couple of questions which Customer Services sorted for me. Application form straight forward.
Helpful Report
In the time I have had my plan I have found the company great to deal with, the plan is nice and clear and making deposits and withdrawals fairly straightforward and completed quickly within the usual 5 day time frame. However on this occasion I have requested a withdrawal and 9 days later no sign of the funds and limited communication as to when the funds will arrive. At least with certainty when the funds will arrive will allow me to move forward but I just feel in limbo. Certainly not the usual standard of service that you normally provide.
