Pensions Auto Enrolment has been a great success.
Government publicity has created inertia with high sign up rates to schemes so far. It’s created opportunities for advisers across the industry.
My guest today argues that the Government should build upon the success of Pensions Auto Enrolment and introduce a similar Auto Enrolment scheme for Group Income Protection.
His views have sparked an intense debate between those who feel more compulsion is unnecessary and those who feel this would benefit employees, employers and the Government.
Paul is Marketing Director at Canada Life Group Insurance, and before that has had marketing roles at Legal and General, Unum and Aviva.
A keen sportsman, Paul notes his interests as Bath Rugby, Somerset Cricket, Swindon Town Football, Diving, and Skiing.
He also says he loves the Caribbean Island of St. Lucia and is about to obtain dual citizenship of the Caribbean by marriage.
Listen to how Auto Enrolment for Group Income Protection might work and how easy it would be to incorporate the choice into Pensions schemes.
Hear how such a development could help ease the burden on firms to comply with the Equality Act and give a business benefit such as help with occupational and statutory sick pay.
