The PPP – The Kids Are Alright

The Kids Are Alright

For the final episode of season 5 of the Practical Protection Podcast, Kathryn mixed things up a little bit and hosted a super fun episode with the Cura kids.

Now, you might be thinking what I mean by that or the reason behind it. The average reading age in the UK is that of a 9 year old, so how does this then play a role when it comes to protection insurance. Is it too difficult to apply for insurance? Do people understand the documents they are given? The kids of Cura consist of the children of our staff members, and range from the ages of 4 to 12. You will be hearing from Grace, Theodore, Sophia, Alexander, Kaydee, Kara and Zachary.

The insurance knowledge of a 4 year old child is expected to be quite limited, but for the children aged 8 to 12 this could give us a broad idea of how the average person within the UK is able to read the terminology often used on documents and within the industry as a whole. Of course, this isn’t going to give us any scientific data or true statistics, but we thought it would be fun to fit in before the summer holidays.

With our special guests being young children, there is only so much that Kathryn can ask without them being distracted or wanting to run off to play. When it came down to the technical jargon, none of the guests were able to understand what was being said. They did however come somewhat close to knowing what a policy lapsing means. Serious or critical illness also had a few responses with some of the guests wondering about cancer and covid, though covid wouldn’t be included in serious or critical illness cover. 

How we speak with children is often different to how we would speak with an adult, and because of this Kathryn made sure her guests knew how great they were throughout the episode. One of the ways they were being so great was by speaking up, and being able to tell Kathryn exactly where adults were being too confusing and not getting it quite right!

I think we can all agree that season 5 has been great. We have learnt many things from accessing insurance with health conditions, when working in the  armed forces, right through to public relations in our industry. 

On top of that, we can see how much of a useful resource the podcast has been for people in many different areas of the insurance industry, and useful for some of our clients too! So far we have:

  • A bank of over 52 hours CPD
  • Over 6,000 unique listeners
