Level Term Life Insurance

Level Term Life Insurance provides a tax free lump sum payment to your family in the event of your death. This is the most popular form of life cover.
 
Level Term Cover provides a fixed benefit & premium over a specified term. The cost and sum remain the same for the term of the policy.
 
If there is no pay out during the term, the policy ceases.  Although there is no cash-in value and only pays out on death of the individual during the term.. It provides peace of mind to you and your family that you are both financially safe during your term. (Max age 91)
 
With this policy, you can guarantee your loved ones receive the selected sum when you die. This will help to maintain their current standard of living, should the worst ever happen.

Convertible Term Life Insurance

Like Level Term, this provides a tax free lump sum payment to your family in the event of your death. The benefit and premium will still remain the same throughout the chosen term of cover.
 
A convertible option allows you to continue your policy after your term ends, for another specified term. Or to change it to a Whole of Life policy, both without having to provide further medical evidence from your GP.
 
This is very advantageous, if your health deteriorated over the initial term. Because the availability of continued cover is still guaranteed. Convertible term’s cost compared with Level Term is very little for what it provides. (about 5-10%) depending on Age and Smoking status.

Whole of Life Insurance

An insurance plan that lasts for the policy holders lifetime, and is not limited to a specific term. When you die, the policy provides a lump-sum payment to your family / dependents. It could also provide money to cover your funeral expenses. Your policy will also pay out immediately if you get diagnosed with a Terminal Illness.
 
This policy costs considerably more than Term Life Insurance. Even with convertible option applied to the Term Life Policy.

Optional Extras

Serious Illness Cover

Life insurance doesn’t pay out on diagnosis of a Serious Illness. Unless you add a specified additional cover amount for Serious Illness Cover. This will result in a higher monthly premium.
 
When adding Serious Illness Cover, you have two options:
 
  • Accelerated Serious Illness: On diagnosis of a specified serious illness, the selected Illness cover amount gets paid. If you subsequently die during the term of the policy, the remainder pays out.
Example: If you selected €150,000 Life Cover and €100,000 Serious Illness Cover.. On diagnosis of a Specified Serious Illness – €100,000 pays out on diagnosis, €50,000 paid on death. 
 
  • Standalone Serious Illness: You choose a Life Cover amount and a Serious Illness Cover amount. On diagnosis of a Specified Serious Illness.. the selected Illness cover amount will get paid out. If you then die during the term of the policy – your full Life Cover amount would also get paid out.
 

Life Insurance Indexation

Both your benefit and premium will increase annually at a set percentage. This is to protect against the negative impact of inflation on your cover amount. Call us if you wish to have indexation on your policy.

Who can be covered with Life Insurance?

Single Life Cover

Only one person covered by the policy. If the individual dies within the term of the policy.. The cover amount gets paid to the policy holders estate or lender (Whichever selected).
 

Dual Life Cover

Both people covered equally under this policy. Dual Life Cover is a popular choice as it comes at no extra cost compared to Joint Cover. It pays out on both the first death and second death. Doubling the cover amount selected.
 

Joint Life Cover

Two people covered under a single policy. Joint Life Cover only pays out on one death.
 
Example: “Joint Life, First death” will pay out when the first named life dies. Nothing paid when the second person dies. If you currently have a joint cover policy, we strongly suggest you to review your Life Insurance.

Life Insurance FAQ

Your life insurance cover is generally estimated by 10 times your annual salary. A review of your circumstances, requirements and disposable income will establish what’s required.
 
You may have savings already put aside.. and the age of your family will be an important aspect of your requirements.
 
Do you have very young children? Or a dependent with special needs to provide for? Or do you need to provide funding for school or college fees? Have you covered the cost of an outstanding mortgage or long-term loans?  What about the provision of funeral expenses?  The average funeral ranges from €3,000-€9,000. Do you have that at your disposal now? And if not, how would your family have it at their disposal.. If this was not already in place in the form of Life Insurance? 
 
You should take these factors into account when deciding the amount of Life Insurance Cover needed.

Your Life Insurance premium is on an individual basis and based on the following factors:

  • Benefit. (amount payable on death).
  • Term. (the number of years the policy covers).
  • Age.
  • Gender.
  • Smoker or Non Smoker.
  • Current State of Health.

Accelerated Serious Illness Cover

With this option, The Serious Illness benefit is deducted from the life cover benefit. So that the death benefit is reduced by the selected amount of any Serious Illness claim.
 

Standalone Serious Illness

With this option, The Serious Illness benefit is a separate benefit alongside the Life cover. A claim for Serious Illness will not affect the benefit of the Life Insurance. Which will still remain in place once the serious illness gets paid out.

Both your benefit and premium will increase annually at a set percentage. This is to protect against the negative impact of inflation on your cover amount. The increase is normally at 3% or 5% pa, depending on the company. With the option to stop the facility during the term of the policy.
