BVRA announces new sponsor: PG Mutual

The British Veterinary Receptionists Association is pleased to announce PG Mutual as a new sponsor of the association

PG Mutual is a not-for-profit membership organisation specialising in providing income protection for professionals since 1928. The Income Protection Plus plan can pay you a regular income if you cannot work due to illness or injury. PG Mutual policyholders pay a monthly premium, and if they are unable to work through illness or injury, they can claim a regular replacement income until they are well enough to return to work or reach the age of 65.

PG Mutual is truly mutual; they specialise in creating and managing successful relationships with other organisations to provide this added value for the benefit of their members. They are driven by the fact that employers and the government are constantly looking at ways to reduce their costs and that one area that is repeatedly under great pressure is the level of sick pay either an employer or the state is willing to provide. This has led more employees and the self-employed to consider “income protection” as an alternative safety net to protect their lifestyle, their family’s lifestyle and their businesses should they suffer a long-term injury or illness that would prevent them from working.

As a friendly society, PG Mutual does not have outside shareholders and therefore returns any profit to its members through a profit share scheme. This means that whenever they make an annual profit from the income protection policies, they share it with policyholders by way of an annual bonus paid into the individual’s profit share account as an investment for the future.

BVRA business support manager Lynsey Sadiwskyj feels that the services offered by PG Mutual are important, particularly with the current economic and personal difficulties that are felt by colleagues within the UK’s veterinary industry. Peace of mind regarding salary takes away a level of pressure that may help to ensure long-term health and wellness of our valuable veterinary personnel.

The British Veterinary Receptionists Association (BVRA) seeks to recognise and raise the status of veterinary receptionists within the UK’s veterinary profession and enable career progression by up-skilling through training and certification. They do this by acting as a professional body that focuses on the interests of veterinary receptionists and evolving the receptionist’s role through affordable CPD and training. They are delighted that PG Mutual has agreed to become a sponsor of the organisation and are excited about the opportunities this will bring to both businesses in the future.
