IPME is Friends Provident International Limited’s latest term protection product offering peace of mind for customers.

Should the worst happen, IPME can help protect a family, business or mortgage by paying out a lump sum in the event of death, critical illness, disability, or terminal illness.

Clients can choose from three different term cover options:

  • Stand-alone life cover;
  • Stand-alone critical illness cover; or
  • Life or earlier critical illness cover.


IPME product features

IPME is available on a single life or joint life basis where clients pay on a monthly or yearly basis. Clients have the option to pay premiums in USD, GBP or EUR.

Premiums start from just USD25 per month.

IPME is very portable should clients decide to relocate to another country (subject to any underwriting exclusions).
