"The Steering Committee plays an important role in holding the Executive to account and keeping us on track with our plans for the year ahead."
- Jo Miller, IPTF Co-Chair
Earlier this month, the Income Protection Taskforce (IPTF) announced the appointments of Matthew Chapman and Lewis Breach to its Steering Committee to replace Setul Mehta and Naomi Greatorex who both completed their two-year terms in December 2023.
Today, the IPTF has announced Scottish Widows, Holloway Friendly, British Friendly, OneFamily, Teledoc, and Square Health have joined the ranks – it now has twenty-six members alongside individual advisers and networks across the industry.
This year, Income Protection Awareness Week (IPAW) will run online on the 23rd-27th September. But, alongside this important week, the IPTF will be launching a new podcast series called ‘LetsTalkIP’, hosted by Matthew Chapman. These episodes will explore best practice in advising consumers on Income Protection (IP) as well as wider industry trends with insights from special guests. The podcast is set to launch in early March.
In addition to these projects, the IPTF and its members will also be working to encourage market growth and tackle barriers to product sales via work streams focused on different aspects of the IP market.
