Can my client get a discount on their premiums if they apply for multiple products?
Getting a discount is easy. Just quote and apply for two or more products within the same application to qualify for the multi product discounts in OLP connect. Discounts also apply where another life in the application applies for their own protection products.
Please note from the quote results screen, you can select and de-select products you wish to include in the total quote. The total premium for all selected products is shown, including any discount. The premium shown for each selected product will also incorporate the discount.
Once an underwriting decision on the application has been reached, the discount applies to all products that you accept the terms being offered. At the decision section, you can accept or reject the terms being offered.
The premium shown for each accepted product (both on-screen and on the personal quote available via the pdf link) will also incorporate the discount.
How much discount can my client get for applying online for multple products?
The discount amount is £2.00 per month per additional product. The final discount amount is split equally between all the products/lives applied for.
Where is the discount amount displayed?
The discount amount and the new discounted premium figure is displayed on the quote results screen.
What is 'split sum assured' and how can it help my client?
Split sum assured gives you the ability to meet your clients needs more easily, meaning they only take out and pay for the cover they need. Following advice, if the client needs different amounts of life and critical illness cover, then this can be met on a split sum assured basis either additional or accelerated.
