The Merge – May
Welcome To Your Monthly Newsletter, Powered by Fuse Assurance
The nights are short and full of barbecues as we head into summer this May! We have new information on products long in the making, as well as looking back on our egg-cellent Easter and looking forward to more Game of Thrones.
Protect My Pets Arrives (Along with Some Other Changes Too)!
You may have heard us mention Protect My Pets before, whether through the newsletter or previous blogs, but now we finally have some fantastic news for all your unprotected pets. By the end of May, our brand-new, bespoke dog and cat insurance will be available to everyone via the Fuse Assurance website!
Now you may be asking “Why through Fuse Assurance?” Well, along with Protect My Pockets, all our products will now be POWERED BY FUSE ASSURANCE. This is so that when you buy comprehensive life insurance, specialised income protection insurance or bespoke pet insurance, it will be backed up by the years of experience and trust built up by Fuse Assurance and our insurance partners.
Our Egg-citing Easter Successes!
The Easter holidays may be over, but we’re still celebrating the successful Easter egg-travaganza we had through-out April! First, we raised a tidy £163.50 for our new charity partner The Donna Louise Hospice. By getting into our pyjamas, selling cakes and winning raffle prizes, we’ve been able to help sick and terminally ill children in North Staffordshire enjoy life just that little bit more!
Then in the run up to Easter itself, we shared an Easter basket’s worth of prize competitions, quizzes and special offers on new insurance policies. We just want to give a huge thank you to everyone who took part and made the competitions and quizzes such a runaway success. We also want to give an extra huge congratulations to Laura Harrison and Becki Johnson, who won our Easter Egg Hunt and our Prefect Easter Egg competition. We hope you both enjoyed your Hotel Chocolat Easter Eggs and Amazon gift vouchers!
However, just because Easter is over, doesn’t mean our offers are! Right now, if you refer a friend for Life Insurance or Income Protection, you will both receive a £50 gift voucher of your choice! Just find our “Refer A Friend” forms on the Fuse Assurance and Protect My Pockets homepages and get started. (Full Terms and Conditions can be found here for Fuse Assurance and here for Protect My Pockets.)
Game of Thrones Continues!
Meanwhile, the final season of Game of Thrones continues to march towards its epic conclusion! Here at Fuse HQ, we’ve been following the season with our own series of reviews, looking in-depth into the show that has captured the hearts and minds of millions. Our review of this week’s episode, “The Long Night”, will be available to read later today, but if you’ve missed our reviews of “Winterfell” and “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”, go read them now!

According to Cygnet Jobs, 73% of 25-35-year-olds take workplace stress home. 62% of this group say it causes them to lose sleep with 22% noticing they were losing weight due to the stress!
THE NEWS FROM OUR FRIENDS
Aegon UK and Kames Capital will once again be sponsoring two major Pride events this year. They will be sponsoring Edinburgh Pride for the third time on 22nd June and Essex Pride for the second time on 15th June. Stephen McGee, Chief Financial Officer at Aegon UK said: “Supporting the Pride events is just one of our diversity and inclusion priorities this year and part of our commitment to making Aegon an inclusive place to work.”
New figures from the protection specialists at LV= show that they have paid out a whopping £97.7 million in claims in the financial year 2018/19. Income Protection payouts accounted for £14 million of this, with £5 million being paid to those who needed support with mental health issues. Well done guys, keep up the good work!
