The death of a loved one can cause huge upheaval in our lives. As well as the loss and grief, the financial implications for our nearest and dearest can also be difficult to manage.  Death Benefit Plus funeral insurance is a whole of life insurance policy developed for credit union members, which for a small monthly premium can provide funeral cover in the form of a guaranteed lump sum on death. It can help to pay for funeral bills or other significant costs at this time and can lessen the financial burden for those left behind. Alternatively it could also be left in your Will to a loved one for any purpose.

Key Features of Death Benefit Plus

  • Pays a Lump Sum on Your Death: You choose the cover amount to suit your funeral plans or needs, ranging from €3,000 up to €15,000 and once your policy has been in place for two years, a lump sum will be paid to loved ones to help pay your funeral expenses.

  • Protected Benefit: This feature provides you with added protection where you have at least 5 year’s premiums paid but have to stop paying your premiums early. In this event, we will keep a proportional benefit for you that can be claimed on your death. Funeral policies without this feature would not pay any benefit on your death.

  • Guaranteed Cover: You’re guaranteed to be accepted for Death Benefit Plus funeral insurance if you’re resident and living in the Republic of Ireland, aged 18 or over but under 80 on the policy start date. You will also need an account with a Financial Institution based in the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) for the payment of your premiums by direct debit monthly.

  • No Medicals: There is no need to complete a lengthy medical questionnaire or attend for a medical examination. 

  • Affordable Premiums that will not go up: Premiums can start as low as €10* a month and remain fixed for the duration of the policy. Your premiums will be based on your age and the cover amount you choose and will not go up.
