When buying your home you will typically be required to put mortgage protection in place. Life Choice Home is designed to go towards paying off the outstanding balance on your mortgage in the event you die prematurely.

Most people take out this cover for the term of their mortgage and the cover on this plan reduces each month as the amount on the mortgage reduces.

Benefits of An Post Insurance Life Choice Home

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 Mortgage Protection is designed to pay off the outstanding balance on your mortgage if you die or suffer from a specified serious illness (if this option is selected by you this will show in your policy schedule) 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 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
  • Add Specified Serious Illness Cover (this is an optional cover which must be chosen by you to be included – if selected this will show in your policy schedule)

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 Assets can be used by individuals who want to ensure their investment property or business will provide their family with financial security in the event of death or serious illness.

With Life Choice Assets you can get:

Lump Sum Payment - In the event of death

A lump sum that can help to meet your family's immediate financial needs.

Lump Sum Payment – If you suffer a serious illness

A lump sum amount in the event that you suffer from a specified serious illness (benefit can be standalone or deducted from the lump sum on death benefit).

Optional Benefits of An Post Insurance Life Choice Home or Life Choice Assets

You can also add one or more optional benefits to further protect your home or assets in the short-term, for example:
  • Specified serious illness cover if chosen pays a lump sum in the event you suffer one of the specified serious illnesses covered
  • Depending on the LifeChoice product selected there are a range of other additional benefits such as surgery payment benefit, Hospital payment etc
  • Medical Free Conversion allows you to convert your policy to a new mortgage, family protection or assets plan without the need for further medical evidence.
