At Irish Life we pay thousands of claims every year – in fact in 2018 we paid over 7,900 claims overall worth €299 million. This includes claims paid by both the Retail and Corporate divisions of Irish Life.

From experience we know that making a specified illness cover or life insurance claim can seem daunting at an already difficult time.

Every month we independently research how satisfied our customers are with the service they received. In 2018, customers scored our specified illness cover claims service 88% (Source: The Leadership Factor, December 2017 – November 2018).
