OnePlan Protection for your family, get peace of mind to enjoy the important things.

You work hard to look after your family’s needs but it’s worth every minute. And you want to be able to continue looking after them even if something unexpected were to happen. That’s why it’s important to plan for the future and ensure you have the right cover in place for you and your family.

An innovative new approach to family protection

OnePlan Protection from Irish Life is one of the biggest innovations in life insurance in Ireland. It combines different types of cover in the one plan, including Life Insurance Cover, Bill Cover, and Specified Illness Cover.
This is the very first plan of its kind in Ireland to include these types of cover in one. It means you can have the best cover, with one direct debit payment, from the one company, all under the one plan. The innovative approach to protection also means that cover is more financially affordable as combining 3 types of cover means you only pay one policy fee.

What does OnePlan Protection offer your family?

  • Decreasing Life Cover - Pays a lump sum to replace your income if anyone covered on the plan dies.
  • Bill Cover - Pays your essential bills (including Rent or Mortgage) if you can’t work due to an injury or illness while you are employed. If you have bill cover and become unemployed, you will not be able to claim for bill cover if you are unemployed for more than one month.
  • Specified Illness Cover -  Pays a lump sum if you are diagnosed with a specified illness.

These are just some of the benefits available and remember you can choose any benefit on its own or a combination of the benefits, whichever best suits your needs. Click here for OnePlan brochure (pdf, 660 KB)

Tailor your cover to suit your budget.

You can also choose between 3 different levels of cover to suit your budget: standard, essential and comprehensive. This allows you to tailor your level of cover to your individual needs and choose a plan that’s right for you, your family and your budget.

The amount you pay is guaranteed to stay the same for the entire period that you are insured for.
