Life Assurance


The Voluntary Life Assurance Plan is designed to provide an additional lump sum at the date of death for a staff member who dies before age 65, while employed by the University.  All members of staff under 65 years of age are eligible. 

If the employee wishes to join the Plan they will be automatically covered without any form of medical evidence subject to joining within 31 days of entering employment of UCD or on the date you first became an eligible employee and can sign the declaration in Application Form A.

If you do not join the Plan within 31 days of entering the employment of UCD and subsequently apply for membership, you will be asked to submit medical evidence as requested by the Assurer along with Application Form B.


Membership Promotion – February 2015 to April 2015

From 1st February 2015 to 30th April 2015 employees will be given an opportunity to join the plan without the need for medical underwriting, subject to meeting certain criteria. This is a limited time offer. Full details are set out in the Notice to Employees - Voluntary Life Assurance Plan‌.

Willis Risk Services (Ireland) Limited will provide a series of presentations on the upcoming membership opportunity commencing in February. If you wish to book a place on this seminar you may do so through UCD Learning & Development.
