Services Death Benefit

All eligible members of the Credit Union are covered under our Death Benefit Policy. This means in the event of your death, a lump sum of €1,000 will be paid to your account nominee to help with the cost of funeral expenses (on foot of vouched funeral expenses), thereby easing the financial burden of bereavement.

Nobody enjoys talking or even thinking about their own mortality. However the simple fact is funerals are now extremely expensive and very few people realise the impact funeral bills will have on their lives. In recent years the average cost of a funeral has increased from €250 to over €3000. Death Benefit won't ease bereavement but it will go a long way towards easing the financial burden your death may place upon your family.

To qualify for death benefit the following must apply:

a)The deceased must have been a member of Athenry Credit Union for the previous twelve months,
b) The member must have joined Athenry Credit Union before their 70th birthday and
c) The deceased must have a minimum of €100 in shares on date of death.
d) There must be a valid nominee on your account
