MPAF16 – Paul Avis on Auto Enrolment for Group Income Protection
This is the Podcast for providers and advisers looking to share business ideas and inspiration in the world of protection and finance.
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 has sparked an intense debate between those who feel more compulsion is unnecessary and those who feel this would benefit employees, employers and the Government.
My guest in Episode 16 is Paul Avis.
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 alleviate the burden on firms to comply with the Equality Act and provide a business benefit such as assistance with occupational and statutory sick pay.
