Irish Life Corporate Business - Lead sponsor
Irish Life Corporate Business is one of the largest providers of employer-sponsored group insurance and defined contribution pension services in Ireland, serving the needs of over 300,000 employees across over 3,000 companies in Ireland.
The Irish Life Corporate Business mission is to help workers to provide for a secure financial future for themselves and their families, and we work closely with employers and their advisors to deliver this goal.
In our group insurance business we pay out over €60m in life cover benefits each year to the families of people we have insured. We pay a further €50m a year in Income Protection benefits to insured employees who have become unable to work through illness or disability. In our group pensions business we have focussed on product innovation to allow employees saving for their retirement to manage investment risk in an effective manner, and on technology development to constantly improve the on-line information and services we make available to employees, employers and advisors.
Irish Life Corporate Business is a business unit within Irish Life Assurance plc, which in turn is a subsidiary of Irish Life & Permanent plc.
