Why should you choose Forces Advice? Chances are you’ve come across us while looking for someone who can provide you with insurance that covers you while you serve in the Armed Forces. It’s possible you’ve had a look at other websites, but here we’re going to tell you about what sets us apart from the others?
We know the life you lead
We’ve been in the same situation that you find yourself in as you read this. Not only are our founders- Martyn Barberry and John Sykes- former Armed Forces Personnel, over 60% of our team are former members of the Armed Forces.
Because of this, we’re already one up on your standard high street insurer- who more often than not has been as close to the life you lead as they are from landing on Jupiter. Indeed, it’s from our experiences that Forces Advice was created- because we wanted to use the knowledge we gained since the end of our service to assist people like yourself.
It’s unfortunately true that many of the “off the shelf” insurance products from your standard high street insurer doesn’t cover the things you need. So if something happens and you need to call on it, you find there’s a sneaky opt-out that means what you thought you were covered for, you actually aren’t.
Finding the Best For You
There are some Military insurers who offer insurance products from just one insurer. We don’t believe that offers fair value for money. We offer products from a range of specialist insurers, allowing us to truly find the right package that suits you and your needs. Our method goes like this: We take the time to understand your needs and find the solution that suits you. Besides, by working with a range of insurers, this often means we can find a package that not only suits you but provides good value for money.
By doing this, we’re incentivised to find the best deal for you. Because if we don’t, you won’t use us, quite simply. Where some of our competitors only offer one solution, we find the right one for you.
We’re Here For You
Forces Advice is our name, it’s also our mission. We’re not just here to offer insurance products. We also offer advice on how to get the best from your career. For example, we’re able to give advice for your future. This could include, but isn’t limited to: the Armed Forces Help to Buy scheme, the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme or the Armed Forces Pension Scheme Death in Service Benefits.
And when we say give- that’s exactly what we mean. We don’t charge for our advice. We make our money through commission on every insurance package sold, which in turn allows us to be able to give the advice that can help.
We know that it can sometimes be difficult to find the time to get together and think about the future- least of all in moments of precious leave. Because of this, we can make an appointment to come and see you- whether that’s at home or at camp.
Life in the Armed Forces is more than just being on the field- chances are you’re married, you might have children- or a partner at home. There’s more to your life than you and your work, and we know how important it is that any decisions made look after those you love.
We’re members of SIIAP and signatories to the Armed Forces Covenant
SIIAP stands for Services Insurance and Investment Advisory Panel, of which we’re a member. Members of SIIAP provide specialist insurance and financial advice to members of HM Forces. By choosing a member of SIIAP for your insurance or financial product, you have the peace of mind that you are dealing with a competent organisation who have made all the necessary arrangements to look after you- whether you’re in the UK or elsewhere in the world.
We are also regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FAC) which means we’re professionally obliged to provide you with accurate, truthful and transparent advice.
Once more, we’re also signatories to the Armed Forces Covenant which reads:
“To those who proudly protect our nation, who do so with honour, courage and commitment: The Armed Forces Covenant is the nation’s commitment to you.
It is a pledge that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families should be treated with fairness and respect in their communities, economy and society they serve with their lives”.
