Insurance to suit your circumstances

The best life insurance is one that will enable your loved ones to continue life without financial worries. The right amount of life insurance helps your loved ones to, for example, pay back loans and inheritance tax.


The premium on your life insurance policy depends on both the amount of benefit you have chosen and your age. You can choose the amount of benefit according to your circumstances and change it at any time while your policy is in force. You can calculate the right amount by factoring in your family’s loans, annual income and number of children. As a rule, the benefit should cover at least your share of any loans, your annual gross income and EUR 20,000 per child.

Joint cover for peace of mind

Joint cover is a good option if you and your partner share the responsibility for your household’s finances. Joint cover is a life insurance policy for two individuals, each of whom can name their beneficiary independently. Joint cover is usually cheaper than individual life insurance policies. With joint cover, the benefit is paid to the beneficiary named by the deceased. If both insured persons die at the same time, the benefit is split between their beneficiaries. If you would like to learn more about joint cover, you can book an appointment with your local specialist here.

Benefits paid from life insurance 

Your life insurance policy pays out to your chosen beneficiaries after your death. The insurance covers death as a result of illness or accident. You can change your beneficiaries online at any time while your policy is in force. What about tax? If the beneficiary of your policy is your next of kin, they will have to pay inheritance tax on the benefit. If your beneficiary is not your next of kin, the insurance payout counts as capital income and is subject to capital gains tax.

It is important that you do not terminate any existing policy until you have received a decision that a new policy has been granted.
