Group Life Plan for University of Limerick members

Peace of mind for you and your loved ones

Call (01) 470 8083


UL Group Life Plan

In the event of death, the issue of financial support may be even more pressing for your family. Mortgage payments, day-to-day living expenses, credit card bills, etc. will still have to be met by those you have left behind. This is why the University of Limerick Group Life Plan is regarded as such a valuable benefit amongst employees.

Members’ Benefit

A lump sum benefit of 2.5 times annual salary is paid in the event of the death of a member.

This benefit is separate to the Life Cover under the University of Limerick Pension Scheme. The Plan provides this benefit up to age 65 or the date that you retire, if earlier.

How to Claim?

As Administrators of the Plan, Cornmarket’s role is to help guide members’ families through the claims procedure. Once notified of a member’s death, Cornmarket will send a letter to the next of kin/legal personal representative explaining the documentation that the underwriters require in order to process the Death Benefit claim, including:

  • Original or certified Death Certificate
  • Confirmation of final annual salary
  • Original or certified Birth Certificate
  • Certified copy of the Will and Grant of Probate (or if there is no Will the underwriters will require Letters of Administration)
  • Proof of ID and address for beneficiaries (requirement for Anti Money Laundering documentation).

Bear in mind that the estate of a deceased member must be processed through the Probate office (the next of kin or solicitor can deal directly with the probate service). This can result in delays to the payment of Death Benefit to the beneficiaries (anywhere between 3 months to a year or more). Once Friends First receives all the documents and information it requires, payment of the Death Benefit claim is usually made within 10 days, subject to admission of claim.
