Life insurance is generally aimed at parents of young children or the sole or primary income earner in a family. If that person dies, a life policy will pay out a lump sum to any dependents that will help towards financially supporting them or perhaps if there are loans or other debts left behind they could not be reasonably expected to pay off.

Having Children Older Can Be More Costly Than You Think

In recent years, the average age an Irish person, has their first child has gone up and is now 32, our parents generation could have finished having babies by the time we have even started and this means some forms of life cover can now be more expensive. When thinking about taking out life cover, take into account how old your children will be when it is due to end. If you have a child at 40, it is quite likely they will still be in college when you are 60 and could still need your support.
