ClearDebt launches IVA Protect – Payment Protection Insurance

Highlights

• IVA contributions protected on all suitable IVAs
• No charge to debtors – lowest possible cost to creditors
• Provides stability and confidence for both debtor and creditor

Aim-quoted IVA provider ClearDebt today is pleased to announce the introduction of “IVA Protect” – payment protection insurance for all ClearDebt IVA’s.

ClearDebt believes it is the first IVA provider to make available such a policy, insured through Lloyd’s of London Underwriters, Cassidy Davis part of Jubilee Managing Agency Limited. As a corporate, rather than a retail product the insurance will be applied to all ClearDebt IVAs

IVA Protect has been deliberately created to pay out whenever possible as its aim is to enhance debtor and creditor confidence that their IVA can last the distance; increasing ClearDebt’s stature as the partner of choice for both creditors and debtors.

ClearDebt will not receive any commission on this Policy.

The Policy, brokered by Willis, will cost 4% of the contribution offered to creditors by each debtor. It will not increase the amount a debtor has to pay. Cover is likely only to be declined if the debtor is aware of any impending redundancy or debilitating illness.

The policy is designed to protect the debtor’s monthly IVA contributions and can pay up to 12 months’ for any one claim, should a debtor be unable to work due to an accident, illness or involuntary unemployment. Accident and illness are covered from the day the debtor’s proposal is accepted. A 90 day qualifying period applies only to unemployment. Further occurrences of unemployment or illness will also be covered for additional 12 month periods.

David Mond, CEO of ClearDebt Group Plc said,

“Our aim is to ensure our IVA’s are the best possible for both debtors and creditors. Creditors will benefit from lower IVA failure rates and our low, fixed fee structure means we will still produce higher returns than our competitors to creditors.

“Taking no commission means creditors receiving a better dividend and the policy will remove the worry of unemployment or serious illness for debtors in IVA’s.

IVA Protect will allow ClearDebt to offer the best service to both creditors and debtors. We believe that it will strengthen our level of passed IVA’s and help ClearDebt with its aim of achieving the industry’s lowest failure rate.”
