The article reports that the sales of general insurance provider Select & Protect's age-banded mortgage payment protection insurance (MMPI) product, Intego, has increased by 100 percent since its launch in August 2005 in Great Britain. Intego, underwritten by Norwich Union (NU) PLC, features full accident, sickness and unemployment cover, 30-day excess or the "back to day one" option and privileged access to NU's personal health manager. The findings of a survey conducted by Assurant Solutions and CETA revealed that attitudes of the industry to MPPI are still mixed.
