In 12/2014, Countrywide Assured's parent Chesnara finalised the purchase of Direct Line Life from RBS, once they closed to new business in 2011. The company was then renamed as Protection Life & they administer old Direct Line Life & Tesco Life Cover Policies.
Established in 1988, Countrywide Assured is based in Preston, Lancs.
Protection Life is closed to new business but continues to administer existing policies (previously arranged with Direct Line Life) in line with their policy terms & conditions. They advise that sale of Direct Line Life, change of name to Protection Life & the subsequent transfer of business into Countrywide Assured does not alter any policy benefits or premiums.
