What about Cover Builder?
Sadly, Cover Builder has had to recently close and stop all new business. However, all policies taken out are still underwritten by UKG. If you took out a policy with Cover Builder then you should receive some notification about this. Your policies will still be valid but an insurance renewal will sadly not be offered.
