People in the East Midlands are the least insuredMore than two-thirds of the UK adult population either have not purchased any life insurance (57%) or do not know whether they have or not (11%), according to research by LifeSearch. Respondents from Northern Ireland reported the most lives covered at 42%, featuring just above 39% of Londoners with life insurance. People in the East Midlands reported the least coverage, with life insurance only figuring for 19% of respondents.
Employers are in danger of having group risk protection policies that are not legislatively compliant because of increases in the state pension age. Group Risk Development (GRiD), the group risk trade body, said following the removal of the default retirement age (DRA), group risk benefits can legally cease at age 65 or the state pension age (SPA), whichever is later.
Minimum monthly premium has been lowered to £8VitalityLife has launched a new version of its life insurance plans featuring lower minimum monthly premiums. Called Vitality Lite, it is aimed at customers who want a lower cost plan and who previously may not have considered Vitality because of the higher minimum premium. The minimum premium for Vitality and Wellness Optimiser plans is £30 per month (£40 joint life). With Vitality Lite, this reduces to £8 or £10, depending on the policy selected.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
