All eligible members of the Credit Union can apply for insurance covered under our Death Benefit Insurance Policy. This means in the event of your death, a lump sum of €1,300 will be paid to your family to help with the cost of funeral expenses, thereby easing the financial burden of bereavement.
Nobody enjoys talking or even thinking about their own mortality. However the simple fact is funerals are now extremely expensive and very few people realise the impact funeral bills will have on their lives. In recent years the average cost of a funeral has increased from €300 to over €6,000. Death Benefit Insurance won’t ease bereavement but it will go a long way towards easing the financial burden your death may place upon your family.
To qualify for death benefit insurance you must be a Credit Union member and must have joined the Credit Union before your 70th birthday. Member must be in good health when opening the account and must satisfy the requirement of having a share balance of €250.00 at the time of death.
