    Death Benefit Insurance

Omagh Credit Union also provides Death Benefit Insurance for all eligible members.  The cost of this insurance is just £18.65 this year for adults and £1.48 per year for minors.  In the event of the death of a member, a payment of an additional £2000.00 is made to the family of the deceased member to help to defray funeral expenses on receipt of the funeral bill.

Changes have been implemented to the way the Death Benefit Insurance will be deducted from member's accounts from 1st December 2022.  All members now have the choice to either OPT IN or OPT OUT for the premium to be AUTOMATICALLY DEDUCTED from their shares on a annual basis.
