Over 50s Life Insurance

Over 50's Life Insurance is the over 50s Life Cover plan from Irish Life. It provides you with up to €25,000 of life insurance to organise a nest egg for your family, or to pay any outstanding bills you might have after you die.

Over 50s Life Insurance starts from just €15 a month (excluding the 1% government levy) making it really affordable. The costs of your regular payments depend on your age and the amount of cover you choose. You must keep up you payments to stay on cover.

The lump sum is guaranteed and regular payments stops at age 90 but your life insurance cover will continue. You could leave the lump sum to your family and loved ones to help pay the cost of funeral expenses, cover any loans or bills you might still have when you die or to leave a nest egg to grandchildren.
