Tell me about Employee Benefits

Employee Benefits, also known as Group Risk cover, allows companies to provide their employees with benefits that will financially protect them and their families in the event of illness, disability or death during their employment.

Smiling young business woman

As Ireland’s only specialist Group Risk provider, Generali PanEurope currently protects over 200,000 Irish employees. We work in partnership with Irish employers of all sizes and across all industry sectors to put in place market-leading Group Risk solutions that meet the evolving needs of their businesses and their employees.

Relative to other types of employee benefits, Group Risk benefits are inexpensive for employers to offer. They are a key element of any remuneration package as they help to attract and retain high-calibre employees, especially in an active jobs market.

We provide three main Group Risk products:

Additional Benefits

We also offer Additional benefits that can be built in to an employer’s Group Risk plan. These include spouse’s and children’s pension, lump sum benefits on accidental death and dismemberment as well as cover that ensures premium payments are continued in the event of an employee’s long term disability.

Voluntary Group Risk schemes

The majority of Group Risk benefits offered by Irish employers are compulsory for employees as the cost is paid by the employer, based on defined eligibility conditions.

However, Generali PanEurope can also arrange voluntary Group Risk schemes whereby employees or members of an affinity group can opt to join the scheme if they value one or more of the benefits on offer.
