How can life insurance help?

The money from a life insurance plan could help your family to:

  • Maintain their current lifestyle
  • Pay off loans and debts
  • Invest it as a nest egg for the future or to generate an income
  • Pay for your children’s education or child care
  • Manage other living expenses

Flexible life insurance tailored for you

It’s not an easy thing to think about. That’s why we make our life insurance straightforward and easy to manage. Then once it’s in place, you can get back to living your life.

How to design your life insurance cover

  • Choose the cash sum that your family might need if you die.
  • Select the length of your policy – from 2 to 50 years.
  • Decide if the money paid out should keep up with inflation.
  • Include a ‘conversion option’ to let you extend your cover at any time.

Policy features


  • Free accidental death cover while your application is considered.
  • Payment of your benefit if you’re diagnosed with a terminal illness, as long as 12 months or more remain on your policy.


  • Option to issue your policy ‘under trust’ so you can specify who will get the benefit on your death.
  • Option to assign your policy to a third party – useful if you borrow money from a bank.


  • A price match of Ireland’s major insurance companies to give you the best value.2
  • Favourable rates for non-smokers.

Additional cover

You can get even more peace of mind by adding specified illness cover to your life insurance policy. This means that if you are diagnosed and proven to have a specified illness or if you die, your benefit will be paid.
