John & Dee Bloomfield

The Bank of Nan and Grandad

Bank Of Nan and GrandadLast year the BBC  reported that the age of an average first-time property buyer was now between 27-34 depending on where in the country you happen to live. It's not that surprising that the age has been creeping up over that last couple of decades as house prices have increased exponentially and wages haven't it has become harder and harder for first-time buyers to raise that essential deposit.

According to the Daily Mail, the average first-time buyer needs a deposit of more than £30,000 that's more than the UK's reported average salary.

Traditionally equity release or lifetime mortgages have been marketed as a way for retirees to release equity from the property to fund a more luxurious lifestyle but of course, the funds can be used for almost any legal reason. Many people who would qualify for a lifetime mortgage are reluctant to do so because they feel that they would be 'taking away' the families inheritance.

My Critical Illness Claim

DeeBloomfieldFinancialWebSized

nceraHi, I am Dee, some of you may know me personally or others may have heard my husband John talk about me. Some of you may also know that I am a new starter at Bloomfield Financial, so if ever I pick up the phone don't be alarmed.

I asked John if I could write an article about critical illness insurance. I am aware that John has published some in the past and he has a wealth of knowledge with Critical Illness (I am not just saying that because he is my husband ha-ha).

I wanted to write this article as someone who has been diagnosed with a critical illness so that you can gain a better understanding of what it feels like and first-hand views on how important critical illness insurance is.

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in November of 2011 when I was just 28 I was admitted to hospital initially with vision problems. They were sudden and so severe that I could not read an eye examination chart, and could not walk without support as my balance was all messed up too.
