If I had my way, I would write the word ‘insure’ upon the door of every cottage and upon the blotting book of every public man, because I am convinced, for sacrifices so small, families and estates can be protected against catastrophes which would otherwise smash them up forever.

Money Talk this week focuses on family protection and Simon is joined by Johnny Timpson, Scottish Widows Protection specialist and Department of Work and Pensions Disability Champion. Life and health insurance is easy to get when you are fit, but it’s far harder when you have any kind of health issue. They will be discussing financial protection in general and improving access to insurance for people with disabilities & mental health issues – something Scottish Widows is working on very hard.
