Financial Protection

AIG’s Group Income Protection provides income for employees, if they are unable to work. For us, people come first, which is why we offer practical preventative help and financial support for employees. And it gives you the opportunity to help employers offer a valuable benefit for their business.

For healthier people, there’s Smart Health

Let’s start with your clients: if their employees are living unhealthy lifestyles, this could translate to lower engagement, higher turnover and even lower productivity*. So it’s in their best interest to encourage a much healthier outlook. That’s where Smart Health can help.

Smart Health is more than a wellbeing service – it’s a GP with 24/7 availability, as well as a fitness coach, nutritionist and mental health supporter, accessed on the go at any time. Health has never been so convenient.

It offers employees access to six personalised services, including nutrition plans and workout programmes, to help ward off illness, as well as a second medical opinion service. But most importantly, they have 24/7 access to a GP. Whether it’s over the phone or via video call, employees can speak to a medical professional wherever they are. All insured employees can benefit from Smart Health.

Financial Protection

When an employee is recuperating, the last thing they need to distract them from their recovery is money worries - an income could make a huge difference.

The benefits of our Group Income Protection are available to businesses of any size. And your clients will have complete control, as well as the opportunity to offer an attractive benefit to their employees. It’s also flexible and can be tailored to each employer with ease – whether it’s the amount of time income protection is paid, or the time an employee needs to be off before it kicks in.

So that’s our Group Income Protection offering – focused on practical prevention (unlike other products out there) and protection when it’s needed. Be your best with AIG.
