As we approach the end of summer we are seeing children returning to education. The rising costs of living in Ireland, and particularly in relation to education, has been very topical in the press this month. In this month's newsletter you can read about the key insights from Zurich's 2023 Cost of Education Survey and learn about why there has never been a more important time for your clients to save. We also look at Zurich's latest Protection promotions. While the industry focus over the coming months is traditionally on pension and retirement planning, this is too good an opportunity for you to overlook the protection conversation. Saving for future education costs and retirement requires an income - protection policies not only protect their income today, but also their capability to save for tomorrow.
As always, if you have any questions regarding any of the topics in this newsletter please do not hesitate to contact your Zurich Broker Consultant.
We are delighted to invite you to our annual Zurich Retirement Conferences in Dublin, Cork, and Limerick. As always, they promise to be engaging, informative, and insightful events, certainly not to be missed. Registrations are open and places are limited, so make sure to book your place now.
We have some good news about our protection promotions. Not only have they been extended until 31 December, we have also removed the maximum premium restrictions which were previously applied to our protection discounts.
