Annual renewable life insurance

Renewable annual life insurance is a customisable product where you choose the cover. However, the insurance does feature some minimums and maximums.

Death from any cause.

  • This guarantee is mandatory. The minimum coverage is €30,000 and the maximum €249,999.99.

Absolute and permanent disability.

  • This is optional cover; if it is contracted, it is equal to the cover contracted for death.

Accidental death.

  • This is also optional cover. If it is contracted, the additional capital will be the same as for the death guarantee, with a limit of €310,000.

See Conditions Conditions

General terms and conditions

The insured must be an individual resident in Spain; non-residents may only contract death coverage if the insured is domiciled in Spain.

The insured must be between 14 and 69 years old at the time of contracting the insurance. In the renewable, periods, the maximum age is 70 years in the case of death insurance and 67 in the case of permanent absolute disability. In the case of accidental death, the cover will be extinguished in the annual period in which the insured turns 65 years old.

A health questionnaire consisting of ten questions must be completed to contract the insurance. In exceptional cases, the insured may need to complete certain additional questionnaires:

  • Disease questionnaire: if the insured declares that they are suffering from certain diseases.
  • Professional questionnaire: if the insured declares that they belong to one of the professional categories considered to be high risk.
  • Accommodation/travel questionnaire: if the insured declares a large volume of trips.

Economic terms and conditions

The first instalment will be charged directly to the designated account. On renewal, these are charged through the bill.

This insurance does not include an instalment fee for spreading payment of the premium.

Payments for the Renewable Annual Term Insurance can be split when they exceed €18:

Taxation

There are no tax deduction for the premiums paid.

On the death of the insured, the payments received by a person other than the policy holder will be subject to Inheritance and Donations Tax. The way in which these are taxed will depend on the degree of kinship and the current tax regime in each Autonomous Community.

The income obtained as a result of absolute and permanent disability insurance will be considered capital gains and subject to personal income tax. Withholdings will be applied to the amounts considered as income for income tax purposes. This is without prejudice to the regulations of the Basque Country and Navarra.

If the beneficiary is the spouse and it is understood that the insurance premiums were made from jointly-held funds, the beneficiary may pay tax on the difference between half of the capital received and half of the premiums paid in income tax, and the other half of the capital in Inheritance and Donations tax. This is this case providing that it is expressly stated in the application form. Otherwise, tax would be payable on the full amount.

See FAQs FAQs

Can I have several life insurance policies?

Yes, you can have as many life insurance policies as you want. And all will be collected in the event of a claim.

Who can I designate as a beneficiary of my life insurance?

You can designate as many beneficiaries as you want and change them at any time. If you do not do so, your beneficiaries will be your legal heirs.

How would my family know that I have arranged life insurance?

There is a public registry of life insurance that enables beneficiaries to identify all of the deceased's current life insurance policies.

What is the duration of the life insurance policy?

The duration of the insurance contract is one year. It will be automatically extended unless indicated otherwise. The contract can be cancelled at any time once the first twelve months have passed, by giving one month's notice.

Could the insurer rescind the insurance if I get sick?

There is an obligation to inform the company if there is any aggravation of the risk at the time that this occurs. If this occurs during the first year of the policy, the company has the power to terminate the contract. After this period, the policy cannot be cancelled, unless fraud is demonstrated at the time of the initial declaration or the pricing of the policy.

Can I increase or decrease the guarantees contracted under my life insurance?

Yes, you can change them but, in this case the minimum insured amount for the death guarantee is €30,000 and the maximum €249,999.00.

What happens if I do not pay a premium?

There are two possibilities. If it is the initial premium, the insurer can terminate the contract or pursue it through the courts. If it is a renewal or successive premium, the cover will only continue for one month after the premium maturity date. The insurer can claim the premium and, if it does not, the contract will be cancelled in 6 months.
