Employers’ Liability

Every farmer should have employers’ liability cover.

This cover provides protection for the farmer against legal liability for injury or disease caused to employees in the course of their farming duties. The calculation of this premium is based on the wages paid by the farmer to employees.

Remember, you should include family members’ wages, such as a daughter or son farming at home on a full time or part time basis. This is also the case for voluntary helpers. You’ll need to declare extra activities, such as Agri Contracting, to the Insurer as well.

Personal Accident

Farmers very often have everything covered with their farm insurance except themselves! However, it should be an essential part of your insurance plan.

How will the farm continue to operate if the farmer breaks a leg or injures / incapacitates themselves, particularly during busy times on the farm? The cost incurred in hiring someone to run the farm for a few months can be substantial. However, building good Personal Accident cover into the Farm policy can cover these expenses, hassle-free.

Personal Accident cover operates 24 hours a day, is not restricted to farm accidents, and you can even extend it to cover sporting accidents. We also include Capital Benefits in the event of death or permanent incapacity.

Important Assumptions

For the purpose of determining the term over which pension contributions are made, we have assumed your birthday was exactly six months ago.

If your target retirement age is lower than the age at which the Social Welfare pension commences (age 68 if you are born on/after 01/01/1961, age 67 if born before this date but on/after 01/01/1955 and age 66 if born before 01/01/1955) the calculations allow for funding for this gap, in addition to the cost of the annuity.

You are entitled to a full Social Welfare pension of €248.30 per week as at March 2019 which is assumed to increase by 2.5% per year.

You are saving for the difference between the Social Welfare pension and your target monthly income in retirement.

We have allowed for inflation of your target monthly income of 2.5% per annum between now and your retirement date.

Any other private pension provision you may have in place has not been taken into account.

Your monthly pension contribution increases by 2.5% each year up until your retirement age and is invested in a pension plan with an annual management charge of 1% and a 5% charge on each contribution, in line with the Standard PRSA fees and charges maximum limit.

A Gross Investment Return of 4.2% per annum on your savings. This is not a forecast because the value of your investment may grow at a faster or slower rate than assumed and the value of your investment may be expected to fall from time to time as well as rise.

On retirement you purchase an annuity which escalates at 1.5% each year, has a 5-year guarantee and is payable monthly in advance. The annuity rate assumes a post retirement interest rate of 2% per annum and no spouse’s pension. The actual annuity rate will depend on the selection of dependant’s pension, guaranteed period and the escalation rate, as well as interest rates prevailing when the annuity is purchased.
