How do I join the Optional Life Assurance Scheme?

An Application form is provided if you seek to obtain Optional Life cover on the life of your spouse or partner. It may be necessary for your spouse or partner to answer questions relating to their health. Should such be necessary, a specialist company in the UK, called MorganAsh Ltd is appointed by the life assurer to contact your spouse or partner by telephone in order to obtain the required information.

You will be required to complete an AGSI Form and your Spouse/Partner will be required to complete an Irish Life application form, with some medical questions.

Thereafter Irish Life, through AGSI, will confirm when cover is in place. Irish Life will assess the potential risk of insuring your Spouse/Partner before membership of the Scheme can be confirmed. This may involve attending for a medical examination.

Not all applications are accepted. In a small percentage of cases membership of the AGSI Spouses Life Assurance Plan may be refused.

Where it is not possible for the Insurers to offer cover, you will be advised.
