Life Insurance or Term Insurance?

Let's explore why & what you should know about both Whole Life Insurance & Term Life Insurance. There are reasons why you might pick one over the other but as always it depends on the individual.

Term Life Insurance

Is Term Life Insurance for you?

As you can tell by the name, Term Life Insurance is an insurance policy which protects over a specific period of time agreed upon within your policy. This “period of time” is usually set up in the years you feel your family are most dependent on you for obvious reasons.


A Term Life Insurance in Ireland is a life insurance plan which is put in place to protect your family from the financial burden that can come with becoming ill or an unexpected death. Protecting your children from this is something you should consider if you haven’t already had a Life insurance term plan set up.

Peace of Mind.

Term Life Insurance can be set up to cover the main working years of your life which is when most people will have children who financially depend on them, you can have great peace of mind that your family will be provided for financially.

What way do I make payments for Term Insurance?

Term Life Insurance is a premium that you pay a set amount (usually by direct debit) on a regular basis for a period of time between 2 & 40 years. If you die or become ill within the “term” your policy covers, your Term Life policy will pay out & the dependents you have set it up to protect are cared for financially.

Can I add cover onto my Term Life policy?

Within your Term Life Insurance policy you can ADD cover for your partner within the same policy, add cover for many serious illnesses & disabilities & increase the cover when you have a new child

Whole Life Insurance explained without the jargon.

Whole of Life Insurance as you have probably already guessed is an insurance plan that lasts a person for the whole of their life. It is NOT just for a specific term. Therefore when a person who has Whole of Life Insurance dies, the policy will provide their family a lump sum payment. The “lump sum payment” may be used to cover funeral expenses etc.


One major benefit of Whole Life Insurance.

One of the major benefits of having Whole Life Insurance is that it can provide a tax efficient inheritance planning for your family. Most importantly, this can then prevent their inheritance been effected by a big tax bill. The person can then get a lot more value out of the assets you have decided to pass on to them when you die. Depending on the individual circumstances this can make a huge difference financially.
The main benefits from Whole Life Cover Insurance is your loved ones receive a lump sum payment which can help with the financial burden of funeral expenses etc.

Protecting your family from inheritance tax which your family may be liable to pay out when you die. This makes Life Insurance a very efficient way of protecting your assets from “inheritance tax”. Some inheritance tax bills can be very large & some families may have to borrow money to pay the tax bill. This can be very stressful within a family even though they now have an asset.
