Mortgage Protection

Life has a habit of throwing up unexpected surprises. By having adequate protection in place you can ensure that your family are protected should the worst happen. Many people will have mortgage protection in place which will pay off their mortgage should they die within the term of their mortgage. However, they do not consider the effect the death or serious illness of either parent would have on the family should the worst happen.

Whole of Life Cover

A Whole of Life policy will provide protection to your family on your death irrespective of when your death occurs. The cost of this product differs widely between different providers and it is therefore important to obtain Impartial advice so that you are aware of the terms, conditions and benefits of each policy. Typically these policies are set up as Section 73/73 and used for inheritance tax purposes.

Term Life Assurance

A Term Assurance policy will pay out a Tax Free lump sum to your family on your death if you die during the term of the policy. Term Protection is cheaper than Whole of Life Cover as it will only pay out if you die within the term of the policy.

The following options can be added to your Life Assurance Policy:

Serious Illness Cover

Serious Illness Cover will pay a Tax Free Lump sum if you are diagnosed with a specified Serious Illness. This will provide cover for you and your family when you need it most. The last thing you will want to think of in this situation is money. An adequate Serious Illness policy will ensure that you can concentrate on getting better without having to worry about your finances.

The average age for specified illness claims is 53. (Source: Irish Life Claims 2019)
