GIP provides a regular replacement income, helping to ease financial concerns during a difficult time. Our advice is based on the knowledge we have of your business today and understanding your requirements for tomorrow and the future. It’s bespoke, so can be tailored specifically for your needs. There are many providers in this market; we only work with experienced insurers who specialise in the provision of group risk benefits to obtain the best value for you and your people.

Why do you need Group Income Protection (GIP)?

GIP is a benefit that can help employers manage sickness and the associated costs. Rehabilitation support can help your people get back to health and back to work – reducing the length of absence and the impact on your company.

The benefit is normally calculated based on an employee’s earnings with options available to meet your specific needs and budget and the needs of your people.

Benefits to the employer

  • Enhances your benefits package to attract and retain top talent
  • Demonstrates a genuine care for staff welfare
  • Reassures your people that their efforts in the workplace really count
  • Helps you support your people during long-term absence by providing a level of income and continuing to maintain pension contributions.
  • Manages the cost of absence through earlier intervention and helping your people back to work quickly
  • Can be used on its own or combined with other benefits for a more complete solution

Benefits to the employee

  • Provides peace of mind and reassurance for your people and their loved ones
  • Your people retain a level of income if they are unable to work because of long-term illness or injury, providing a level of financial security for themselves and their dependants
  • Those receiving this benefit continue uninterrupted employment by remaining on the payroll and continuing to be entitled to certain benefits such as company pension schemes

[Partners&] has looked after the insurance policies we have as a company (and also personal policies for our Chairman) for many years. As a PR company we often have odd requests for insurance of various stunts etc., they have taken the time to get to know our business, ensuring that we have adequate cover at all times. Finally, they are a friendly and efficient team who are always a pleasure to speak to. They provide an excellent service. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services for all insurance needs.

We thought that we had exhausted all options for our type of business. They completely understood the field we operated in and provided us with new options – and then shopped around for us to get a better price.

When renewals are due, they comprehensively research the market place and provide a report with their comments and recommendations as to the various options, further when it comes to any claims against losses or incidents they are helpful and supportive in achieving settlement. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to any third party.

Edward Goodwin, Managing Director

Campmoss Property Ltd

For the last 12 years I’ve had personal household and motor policies with the company. Unfortunately claims have occurred but the help and advice from the claims team is amazing and takes a whole load off your shoulders at a time that could be stressful.

Laura Morris

Private Client

You are by far the very best claims handler I’ve ever experienced!

Jan McKnight

Thank you so much for dealing with this so quickly and efficiently. What a rare pleasure it is to come across someone who gets things done without any fuss!

Mr P

Private Client

May I just say what a pleasure it has been speaking to you and your team on the phone. They have been nothing short of polite and helpful and they also have a sense of humour!

Julie R

Private Client

I did not feel I was getting a sales pitch – more that there was someone at the other end of the phone actually trying to help me sort out any and all issues and make sure my home insurance policy was the correct one for me. I felt reassured that it was “right”…

Vivienne R

Private Client

It’s about putting our people first. In this organisation, people are what matter.

Nathan J

Private Client

We first appointed [Partners&] in 2010 to benchmark our insurances against our multinational broker. The savings made were such that it was decided to move the company’s business across [to Partners&] that year. Since then, our relationship has grown, and we have been assisted in the settlement of a complex claim made against the company to the full satisfaction of the board of directors. We have been impressed with their personal service and we would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Daniel Taylor

Andrew Weir Shipping

They are an extremely professional company, with much knowledge. They are very easy to get quotes from and always get back promptly with a price. Whether it is insurance for your own house or a rented property they are always friendly, helpful & very efficient. They make getting your household, property & car insurance sorted out a very simple process. I cannot rate them highly enough… they give a personalised customer service.

Ms Selman

Private Client

We weren’t particularly clued up on what business insurance in the fitness industry actually covered you for, or how to tell the difference between the levels of cover provided by each insurance company. Wow! What an eye opener! Compared to other providers, Partners& automatically cover you for some really important things that you’d never even have on your radar in the first place. In summary, detailed and comprehensive, yet easy to understand.

Samantha Griffiths

CrossFit Chain Reaction

We have been working with the team at Partners& for several months now and they are absolutely fantastic. The team have a wealth of knowledge and are excellent at giving us answers to
any questions we may have, promptly and when we need them. They have helped us through some changes in our business which we thought were going to be really testing but with the
expertise of the team at Partners&, these became effortless, and we now consider them essential to the management of our benefits platform, and a partner to our business. It feels great to be in good hands.

Kate Wells

Managing Director, Azur Private Clients

The move from a large broker to what was then MRIB Group in 2001 was right for us. As our business has grown and developed since then, the infrastructure and resource that they have delivered has been outstanding.

Eamon Wynne, Director

Furniture Village

All I can say is that I am taken aback with the speed and efficiency. The last thing one needs after an unfortunate incident is a “hassle” and aggravation with the insurance aspect. A very big thank you.

David G

Private Client

I always appreciate how quickly you all respond to our questions

Vicky E

Having joined the business straight out of education it very quickly became clear to me how friendly everyone was and how loyal people were to the firm. The positive environment and ethos allowed me to feel immediately comfortable and feel that I would be able to progress and achieve success.

Beth Wilson

We always come away thinking how lucky we are to have found this company and the people we deal with there – bet there’s not many that can say that about their insurance broker!

Annette

IT Company

These guys are the only insurance people I will tolerate speaking to these days, as they are actual humans (with both a brain and a heart!) and offer very good packages too – they answer calls and emails promptly and when I had an issue recently with my bank were very helpful to get it fixed.

George

The impressive level of personal service and flexibility with which they tackle every situation, has enhanced the already strong relationship.  We would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

While I have had many exciting opportunities, there are even more under the new structure.

We’re here to help you ask the right questions, so that together, we can work on the best outcomes for you, your business and your people.

Group income protection helps ensure your people maintain a salary and overcome any hardship due to loss of income in the event they are unable to work. It enables you to bring in the skills to perform the role or service while your colleague is recuperating at a neutral cost to your business.

A valued feature on some policies is recovery and rehabilitation, which involves a professional assessment of the reasons for the illness or condition to help establish a reasonable recovery period and steps to put in place a phased return to work. It enables an employer to plan ahead and keep the business going.
