In addition to a number of optional “Peopl” Insurance Products, we offer valuable insurance benefits at no direct charge to Members.
The Credit Union take out a group Life Policy to mitigate these claims. These are as follows:
Life Savings Insurance Cover
Did you know that Life Savings Insurance Cover is provided by Blanchardstown & District Credit Union (BDCU), at no direct cost to eligible members, as an additional incentive to save regularly and maintain active savings with us? As of 1st July 2023, the maximum Life Savings Insurance benefit payable on Special Shares is €5,000, subject to policy terms and conditions.
What is Life Savings Insurance?
Life Savings insurance is life insurance cover provided by BDCU at no direct cost to all eligible members. It serves as an incentive to save on a regular basis and in the unfortunate event of a member’s death, it can pay a benefit to the person(s) nominated by the deceased member.
Benefits of Life Savings Insurance
The benefit of Life Savings Insurance Cover with BDCU means that your nominee, as chosen by you on your Nomination Form, could receive a financial sum, up to a maximum of €5,000, in the event of your death, subject to policy terms and conditions.
The amount of insurance benefit that an eligible member is entitled to is related to their age and health when lodging to their shares/savings and to the lowest balance up until the date of their death.
If a member withdraws from their shares/savings this may affect the amount added to their account on death and subsequently paid out to their nominee as part of their estate.
Features of Life Savings Insurance Cover
Depending on your age and how much you have saved with Blanchardstown & District Credit Union over the life of your membership, Life Savings Insurance could provide your dependants with up to €5,000 on your death.
Your insurance remains in place for as long as you leave your savings in Blanchardstown & District Credit Union. Please note withdrawals will affect the amount payable.
