Provider warns on false claims in protection applications

“As NHS services resume and lockdown loosens, we might expect to see a steady increase in claims over the coming months. Early detection is important when it comes to cancer and treatment options so we would urge those who have a health concern to seek medical advice as soon as they can.”

Mr Jacobs’ warning comes after provider Legal & General also found that its CI claims had dropped by 41 per cent in April during lockdown, from its typical figure of around 300 claims a month.
