How Does It Work?
Despite our best plans, we don’t always get time to prepare for the unexpected. Life is fragile. Capital Credit Union’s Member Death Benefit Insurance Programme can help your loved ones with the financial expenses in the event of your death.
The main purpose of Member Death Benefit Insurance (MDBI) is to provide basic life cover to credit union members at an affordable price. It is an additional service designed to lighten the financial burden of bereavement.
What are the benefits?
A sum of €3,250 will be paid to provide additional support for any bereavement costs. Payment will normally be made directly to the Funeral Undertaker or to the person who can provide evidence that they have paid the funeral expenses.
How much does it cost?
The cost is €60 per annum (inclusive of our admin fee), a small price to pay to give you and your loved ones added peace of mind. The cost is charged on a pro- rata basis if you enrol mid-year.
Who is eligible to join the Programme?
You are eligible to join the Programme if you:
- Are at least 16 years AND no more than 70 years by the next enrolment period;
