How will the payment be made?

In the face of Severe Dependency or Major Dependency, the payment of the benefit will be as follows:

  • Monthly annuity

A monthly and permanent life annuity of € 500, € 1,000 or € 1,500 will be paid, depending on the option contracted. This income, which constitutes the main provision of the Insurance, will allow you to cover the recurring expenses that derive from a situation of Dependency, such as the payment of a care home, home care, etc.

  • Capital for initial costs

An optional benefit, for which a lump sum equivalent to three monthly payments of the life annuity taken out will be paid, consisting of € 1,500, € 3,000 or € 4,500. This amount is an important help as it allows you to cover the initial expenses deriving from dependency, such as the adaptation of the house.
