When my renewal came up , it had jumped over €100. This I found startling, as my car had done less than 6,000km due to the pandemic. An Post Insurance was like a shining light, fast and friendly and very competitive with one other insurer. The navigation of the website made An Post Insurance the easier choice. - Sonya 14.01.2021

We've gathered together all the details you need to better understand your Life Insurance and Over 50s Funeral Plan options. Take a look at our FAQs and learn more about how we can help you protect what matters most to you.

An Post Insurance Over 50s Funeral Plan is a life insurance policy which allows you to prepare financially for the cost - or part of the cost - of your funeral. By taking out this policy, you can ensure that you leave your loved ones some money to take care of the cost of your funeral - or to take care of other expenses.

Taking out a funeral plan can allow you and your family to be financially prepared for the costs of your funeral - as well as some of the bills that you may leave behind on your passing. Taking out an An Post Insurance Over 50s Funeral Plan will help you save your loved ones the worry and stress of financing your funeral at an emotional time.

An An Post Insurance Over 50s Funeral Plan guarantees your loved ones a fixed lump sum on your passing. The level of cover is based on the age you commence your policy and the level of cover you choose. Premiums start at just €15 per month.

For example, a 50 year old paying a premium of €15 per month would be assured for €4,700. A 62 year old paying a premium of €20 per month would be assured for €3,190. You can choose the level of cover you want - depending on the type of funeral you wish to have. The total premiums paid over the term of your policy may exceed the death benefit.

Life Choice is a market leading protection product underwritten by New Ireland Assurance Company plc. You can use it to protect your home, your income and your family.

No, the premium is fixed throughout the term of your life choice policy and will remain the same once the benefits are not amended during the policy term. However; if you have chosen the increasing cover option (indexation) then provided premiums have been paid, we will increase the premium and the protection benefits on each policy anniversary by 3% per annum; if you have chosen increasing cover then this will be stated on your original policy schedule.
