Sports Financial Services offer expert advice for individuals taking part in outdoor sports or
work in hazardous occupations.
Hazardous occupations can include roles within the army. Life in the army can be very
challenging, especially in dangerous environments, so it is important that you make sure you
have the most appropriate cover for you and your family. If you are looking for army family
life insurance, the experts at Sports Financial Services will be happy to discuss life cover,
mortgage protection, income protection and critical illness cover options with you.
Sports Financial Services have over 20 years of experience in the financial protection
industry. First established as Summit Financial Services, we discovered that many climbers
and mountaineers, who took cover with us, also took part in other extreme sports such as
scuba diving, skydiving, caving and skiing. This led us to develop expertise in numerous
outdoor activities, so we could offer cover for a wider range of outdoor pursuits.
We also discovered that there was a large number of individuals who came to us looking for
occupational and recreational cover. This is what led to the development of experience in
helping to find cover for related occupations, for example, army and military occupations.
Because army occupations can be based in dangerous environments and require technical
skills, this can result in more specialist types of cover being needed. If you would like to find
out more about army family life insurance, you can discuss your options with one of our
occupational and recreational specialists.

Army family life insurance Vs Critical Illness Cover and Income Protection
Critical Illness Cover:
Critical illness cover is a way to ensure you and your family are covered in the circumstance
that you develop specific medical conditions or illnesses that affect your ability to work. If you
take part in hazardous activities or occupations, critical illness cover will be assessed these
activities. Some types of cover may be offered at standard rates with no special terms
applied, however, other types of cover may result in restrictions, special terms, premium
loadings or exclusions.
All of these circumstances will be discussed in more detail by your Sport Financial Services
Income protection is important to consider if you take part in hazardous activities. It is a good
reassurance if you are unable to work. Income protection can help contribute to financial
commitments such as loans, mortgages, credit cards and bills if you are not able to work.
When discussing income protection, it is important to note that cover is dependent on many
factors. One factor being if you have previously suffered from any injuries as a result of your
activities and if this has led you to take a significant amount of time off from work.
As with critical illness cover, participation in certain sports and activities can result in
premium loadings, restrictions or exclusions. This again will be discussed with you in further
detail by your specialist sport and occupation adviser.
