Legal & General Life Insurance

I think that are: Excellent

This applies to both Legal & general and Protected. Very helpful, covered everything you need to no answered every question in full no beating around the bush. It was all so quick, easy and straight forward. They called me, asked a few easy questions, gave me a quote, took some details, sent some simple paper work and that's it all done, direct debit comes out each month and i don't have to think or worry about anything, just the way i like it!!!
