The Final Journey Home
Ireland’s first and only insurance plan for people would like their remains to be returned to their place of birth.
The International Repatriation Plan
Massey Bros. launched Ireland’s first and only insurance plan aimed at the growing number of people from overseas who have made Ireland their home but who, on their passing, would like their remains to be returned to their place of birth.
The International Repatriation Plan* is the result of collaboration between Massey Bros. and Insurances & Financial Services Ltd., Insurance Brokers and can be tailored to ensure that sufficient funds are available to cover the cost of repatriation to any country in the world.
International repatriation can be both complex and costly. Our plan, which is available to people right across Ireland, has been designed not just to ensure that the funds are available to pay for the repatriation, but also that the arrangements are taken care of for the family. There is also the option to include provision for local funeral costs and the cost of airfares for family members so that they can also travel home with the deceased and attend their ‘local’ funeral.
Uniquely, should the death benefit paid out be more than the actual cost of repatriation, Massey Bros. will return the balance of funds to the estate of the deceased. We are here to help you take care of every detail.
*The international repatriation plan is available to people who at the time of application are aged up to 80 years at their next birthday and is subject to terms and conditions. It requires payment of a monthly premium which is determined by the insurer based on individual circumstances. A legal agreement ensuring that Massey Bros. carry out the wishes of the policy holder i.e. repatriate their remains to their chosen country is also signed which includes a commitment from Massey Bros. to return any surplus from the amount paid by the insurance company to the estate of the deceased. The Insurance Broker, Insurances & Financial Services Ltd. and any insurance company/product provider chosen are regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland. The Terms of Business from the Broker and the Terms and Conditions of the policy will be issued with every quotation requested in advance of commencement of any Life Assurance Plan/Repatriation Agreement.
