It takes Aviva to help you live your best life

We're dedicated to helping people live their best lives by encouraging them to consider their wellbeing in everything they do.

Our Group Income Protection gives access to expert clinical help when needed. It also encourages employees to change their habits by making small, gradual changes to become healthier and happier. And when times are tough, it also offers support services to help employees cope with stress and grief.

The main reason for taking out Group Income Protection is for financial protection. You should not take out a policy for wellbeing services alone.
