Death Benefit Insurance is an insurance which Swilly Mulroy Credit Union provides, again, at no direct cost to the member. It is different to and separate from the Life Savings cover and the Loan cover. The DBI pays out €1,300 to a deceased member’s next of kin in the event of the members death. Payment is usually paid out to the person or people taking responsibility for funeral expenses etc.
Loan protection insurance at no extra cost to our Members!
One of the great attractions for a credit union loan is the loan protection on insurance. It repays the balance of the loan in the event of the borrowing member’s death. Cover is available for those in good health and carrying out normal occupational duties at the time the loan is granted.
Members can take out a loan in the confidence that their next of kin will not have to pay off the balance of the loan if the borrower dies. Banks and other lending agencies charge a separate and expensive premium on top of the loan repayments for this service.
Under the basic policy, insurance cover would normally cease on the member’s 70th birthday, but Swilly Mulroy Credit Union specially extends their cover until members reach the age of 85.
To qualify for Loan Protection Insurance borrowers must give full and honest disclosure of their health status. Normally an underlying health problem will not disqualify a borrower from obtaining cover, provided the member is able to go about their normal occupational duties, but the insurer must be made aware of the condition before the cover can be effected.
