University of Galway Group Life Plan

In the event of your death, financial support may be a significant issue for your family. Mortgage payments, day-to-day living expenses, credit card bills and so on, will still have to be met by those you leave behind. This is why the benefits of the University of Galway Group Life Plan are so valuable for employees.

Key benefits of the plan

Members' Benefit

If a member of the plan dies, a lump sum of 2.5 times annual salary will be paid.

This benefit is separate to your Death in Service Cover as a member of the University of Galway Pension Scheme.

Accidental Death Benefit

If a member of the plan dies by accidental death, a lump sum of €15,000 will be paid in addition to the Members' Benefit.

Children’s Death Benefit

If a member’s child (aged 0 and 21) dies, a death benefit of €4,000 will be paid.
