Seven Families is a campaign highlighting the role protection can play in helping a group of families and individuals unable to work.

It has been credited for prompting a surge in protection quote enquiries towards the end of last year by portals iPipeline and Iress.

Myles Rix, managing director of LV Protection, said: “Income protection provides people with a financial safety net if they are unable to work and earn an income for a sustained period of time.

“We believe that, regardless of whether someone is single, in a relationship or has a family, income protection is the most important protection product for working adults in the UK and we are committed to helping advisers increase take up, to ensure that those who would benefit from this cover have some in place.”
