In this article, the author discusses the significance of proper protection package in Great Britain. He stresses that considering protection just for reconsideration is wrong for those operating in financial services. He challenges the providers that rule the gap between level of income protection and life insurance. He asserts that the primary reason for the protection gap is to provide enough safety measure for all and the very least fortunate in the society.
