Every year we insure our cars, our homes and even our travels but the one thing we often overlook to insure is the most important of all, ourselves and our families. It’s natural not to want to think about the impact an unexpected or premature death can have on a family, however having a protection plan in place is an effective way of providing peace of mind knowing that you have financially protected the things that are most important to you. Everyone is different and the level of cover you need will depend on your individual circumstances. As these change, so too will the amount of cover you need. At Post Insurance, our aim is to provide the right cover for our customers through a market leading protection plan Life Choice Home and Life Choice You & Family.

Benefits of Post Insurance Life Choice Home and Life Choice You & Family

Buying a home is one of the biggest financial commitments you’ll ever make so putting the right cover in place to protect it is very important. Life Choice Home is designed to pay off the outstanding balance on your mortgage if you die during the term of the policy. Most people take it out for the term of their mortgage and the cover on this plan reduces each month as the amount owed on the on the mortgage reduces. 

If you die prematurely your plan can be used to:

  • Clear your mortgage
  • Secure ownership of your home

It is however important to note that should your mortgage change (e.g. you extend the term or change the amount of the loan etc.) that you also review your related life assurance cover to ensure that it continues to meet your specific needs.

Life Choice Home is a highly flexible mortgage protection plan which allows you to:
  • Increase or decrease your cover amount
  • Extend or reduce your term of cover
  • Increase the amount of cover within 3 months of moving house, getting married or having a child without having to provide evidence of health
  • Move to a new mortgage or family protection plan without having to provide evidence of health if the Medical Free Conversion option is selected
  • Avail of a Children’s Protection Benefit

Terms and conditions apply. Benefits are subject to underwriting and acceptance by New Ireland Assurance Company plc. A government levy (currently 1%) applies to premium paid to life insurance policies.

Life Choice You & Family can be used to protect you and your family from the financial uncertainty and hardship that comes with an unexpected serious illness, accident, injury or premature death.

Life Choice You & Family can be used to:
  • Clear any loans or debts ensuring your family's immediate finances are healthy
  • Pay a monthly income to your family if you die so they can continue to meet monthly outgoings and maintain their lifestyle
  • Pay a monthly income to your family if a stay at home parent dies to meet the additional expenses your family would face, such as childcare costs
  • Pay a lump sum amount in the event that you suffer from a specified serious illness (if the Specified Illness Benefit is chosen as an optional extra)
  • Pay a lump sum amount on death to cover funeral expenses and other related costs
