Cirencester friendly, the income protection specialists, today confirms a deal with Capita Financial Software (Capita) to develop its adviser portal, Webline.

Advisers will now be able to produce illustrations, which specifically include Cirencester friendly's Income Assured Plus Day One Accident Protection option directly through Webline.

Day One Accident Protection is a unique feature of Cirencester friendly's Income Assured Plus which allows a contract holder to have a longer deferred period for sickness with the benefit of day one cover in the event of an accident. This benefit helps keep the cost of the contract affordable for clients[1].

Capita has developed an additional feature for Webline, which will allow advisers to add this option to a personal illustration that has a deferred period of one week or longer for comparison with other providers on the portal.

John Bridge, Director of Sales and Marketing at Cirencester friendly comments: "The Day One Accident Protection option is popular among many advisers especially for their self employed clients who find it difficult to take time off work for illness but do see the value of protecting against an accidental injury that may make earning a living physically impossible." 

Bridge continues: "It has been very satisfying working with Capita on developing this additional part of their quotation system and we are keen to ensure that Income Assured Plus is available to as many advisers as possible and adding the contract to Webline will help us achieve this. Advisers using Webline can now access both suitability and price comparison information quickly and easily."

William Watling, Capita Product Director, adds: "It's great that we've been able to make this enhancement to Webline with Cirencester friendly to offer advisers further options when recommending income protection plans for their clients." 

[1] Cirencester friendly's Income Assured Plus is currently available on the Avelo and Assureweb comparison portals, but advisers requiring illustrations with Day One Accident Protection had to go didirect to Cirencester friendly.
