Our Services

ProtectMyPeople is an online group life insurance comparison service for employers. We help you to compare and buy policies from leading providers, quickly and efficiently.

Getting quotes is free. You do not pay us a fee for our service. We receive commission from the insurer which is a percentage of the total annual premium depending on scheme size and complexity. This is built into the prices that are presented by each insurer.

We do not give advice

ProtectMyPeople don't offer advice on the suitability of insurance products for your company. We will provide you with relevant information about group life insurance, and display quotes (including key features and benefits) from the insurance companies on our panel. We will present this information in a clear and simple format, to help you to make an informed decision on which scheme best suits your business needs.
