Your average monthly net income (work remuneration, pension, social security benefits, dividends and income from individual merchant activities) from past 6 months. This sum will be paid out to your loved ones. Our recommendation is to insure at least 24 month income and balance of loan obligations so your family has time to cope with new financial situation, when you are gone. Minimum cover is 15000€.

The sums insured and insurance premium are calculated based on your age, income, desire to protect your close ones and cover your loan obligations. The calculations are approximate and may differ from the offer received by you.

Swedbank Life Insurance SE processes your personal data by automated means, including profiling, to assess insurance risk, calculate premium and sum insured and conclude insurance contract. We process health and other data we receive from you and data we have in existing and previous insurance contracts and applications. We also process data shared by “Swedbank” AS, such as your identification data, contact data, relationship status data (for example customer segment data), your age and financial data, if applicable. Contract conclusion may be fully automated. Please read more from our Principles of Processing Personal Data here.

Are you responsible for your family’s monthly utility bills or loan payments? Are you responsible for the expenses concerning your children’s education and hobbies?

Even if you are partially responsible for the family’s expenses, you should consider insuring your life. Insurance will not bring you life back, but will be of great financial help, especially if you don’t have savings.

The life insurance indemnity will be paid out:

  • to your family in the event of your death;
  • to yourself, if you will be declared with no work ability and it’s difficult or impossible for you to earn a living.

If you add trauma cover to your contract, you’ll receive an insurance benefit in case of a trauma, too, so you won’t have to hurry back to work after the accident, and you can focus on curing yourself.

In Swedbank you can conveniently sign the contract on the Internet Bank and do not have to come to the branch.

  • You can also select trauma cover with 4,9 EUR per month, which serves as a financial benefit for you, if you become seriously injured as a result of an accident (e.g. bone fractures). Trauma insurance amount is 20 000 EUR.
  • We also pay the insurance benefit for disablity or losing life due to illness. According to our statistics for people in working age: 80% of deaths were related to serious diseases.* Other cases were mostly caused by various accidents.
  • You can choose the life insurance amount yourself (please see how to choose the life insurance amount). For concluding the contract we might ask you to complete additional health examination, this is free of charge for you and you can also get an overview of your health condition. Positive results will give you peace of mind. If you should learn about any symptoms of a disease during the examination, you will get valuable information for improving your health.

*Based on 2019 year statistics.

With trauma cover you will receive a benefit according to the severity of the injury (e.g. in case of bone fracture).

  • It’s good to know that illness is not considered trauma, so you will not be indemnified in case of e.g. flu, pneumonia or chronic pain (back or knee pain).

In case of disability cover the benefit is paid directly to you.

  • Disability is a health disorder caused by illness or accident, resulting in limited ability to work and earn a living.

In case of losing life the insurance amount will be paid out to the person determined by you.

  • Inheritance process may take several months, therefore we recommend to select beneficiaries, to whom life insurance indemnity will be paid out within 30 days. It’s easier for your family to pay daily expenses, when you are unable to support them.

Insuring your life is simple and you can easily sign an agreement on the Internet Bank.

  1. Start with a calculator and calculate the sum insured that suits you.
  2. Click „Continue“ to apply.
  3. Life insurance death and no work ability covers will take effect when the policy is issued. Trauma cover starts from the next day.
  4. If the life insurance is tied to a Swedbank loan, all covers will take effect from the next working day after the policy is issued, but not earlier than the day, when loan or part of it has been paid out.
  5. We may ask you for an additional risk assessment and a health examination. The health examination is free of charge for you and you can also get an overview of your health condition.
  6. Tell your family about your life insurance contract.

In Swedbank you can choose the amount of life insurance as you need. Upon choosing the amount, it is important to make sure that it meets the needs of you and your family.

Life insurance minimum amount is 15 000 EUR.
Trauma cover costs you 4.90 EUR per month.

Our recommendation is to insure your life for an amount that would cover:

  • The home loan to ensure that your family could keep your home;
  • An income of at least two years in a manner that it would also cover daily expenses (utilities, children’s hobby school bills, etc.);
  • Other loan liabilities, if any (small-loan, leasing).
