Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Group Protection Update

We want to reassure you that existing group protection cover and service will not generally be impacted by Coronavirus (COVID-19). To help, we’ve answered some common questions employers have asked us about our planning and our policy cover here. If you still have questions after reading this please direct them to your Legal & General Account Manager.

Our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) provider, Health Assured Ltd, is following Government and World Health Organisation guidance. They ask you signpost employees to the NHS website and if necessary NHS 111 specifically for COVID-19 rather than the EAP. This helps them ensure that they uphold the highest levels of support for those calling our EAP in crisis.

We would like to remind you of the range of tools available to you and your employees via our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP). This service can support with a range of challenges employees may currently be facing including:

  • Mental health concerns
  • Childcare
  • Eldercare
  • Financial information
