LONDON, December 28, 2023 – Legal & General in partnership with Co-op Insurance is to begin offering members and customers its Life and Critical Illness cover. The partnership provides Co-op customers access to high-quality protection products at competitive prices, with exclusive benefits for Co-op members.
The products offered through the partnership are Life Insurance and Decreasing Life Insurance [with or without Critical Illness Cover] and Over 50s Fixed Life Insurance.
