Legal & General today announce their new Healthy Living Programme in partnership with roadtohealth, a leading provider of membership based health programmes.
Healthy Living is an online health assessment tool, unique within the individual Protection market and free to all new protection customers who purchase a life, critical illness, Income Protection or whole of life policy. It enables them to assess, monitor and improve their health online through providing answers to a range of health and life style related questions.
This assessment generates a personal Q score which gives customers a guide to how they compare healthwise with 100 people of the same age, race and gender. Healthy Living allows customers to set realistic goals for improvements they may want to make towards enjoying a healthy lifestyle.It also gives customers the option to subscribe to useful email communications such as personal online coaching, hints and tips, plus regular online newsletters and articles on topical health subjects.

"I am very proud that Legal & General is launching this new initiative in partnership with roadtohealth. Our customers are at the heart of what we do and their wellbeing is very important to us. We all lead such busy lives and juggle many things and we know it can sometimes be difficult to ensure we look afterselves properly, yet our health is the most important thing we have. Healthy Living is a programme unique within the Individual protection market and free to all new protection customers. It is part of our ongoing strategy to provide a market leading protection proposition that gives our customers real added value which can help them maintain a healthy lifestyle."
