With an MAPFRE MSV Life Flexi Plan, you get all this:
Payment of the Sum Insured or the Policy Account whichever is the greater when the Person Covered dies.
Terminal Illness Benefit
Payment of up to 50% of the Death Benefit as a pre-payment of the Death Benefit if the Person Covered is diagnosed to be terminally ill.
Funeral Expenses Benefit
Payment of the cost of funeral expenses (subject to a maximum of €2,500) in the form of a partial pre-payment of the Death Benefit.
Designation of Beneficiaries
You can appoint one or more beneficiaries to receive the benefit under the Plan, when this is due. There is no charge for this arrangement to be implemented and it requires only the completion of a simple form. The appointment of a beneficiary (and acceptance thereof) under a life insurance contract does not need to be confirmed in a will and it also supersedes the provisions of a will if there is any conflict between the two.
Cash Surrender Benefit
Option to surrender the Plan in full before maturity. The surrender amount is calculated by applying the surrender charge (and MVR if applicable) to the Policy Account.
Policy Loan Benefit
Option to apply for a loan from us, up to 85% of the Cash Surrender Value of the Plan, using only the Plan as security.
Payment of the Policy Account upon maturity of the Plan.
And there is more. Against payment of an additional premium, you get even more benefits into your plan:
Accidental Death Benefit
Payment of an additional amount equal to the Sum Insured if death occurs as a result of an accident. The annual cost of this Benefit is calculated at the rate of 0.10% of the Sum Insured.

Any payment made under any of the Injury Benefits will be in the form of a pre-payment of the Sum Insured which is then reduced by the amount of the Injury Benefit paid. The annual cost of this Benefit is calculated at the rate of 0.2% of the Sum Insured.
Waiver of Premium Benefit
We will waive the premium due under the Plan if the Person Covered is totally disabled and unable to work. The waiver of premium will continue for as long as the disability continues subject to a waiting period of 6 months and payable up to a maximum age of 65 years. The annual cost of this Benefit is calculated at the rate of 3.75% of the premium payable under the Plan.

This benefit is available in one of two forms - either “pre-payment” or “additional payment” of the Sum Insured. The annual cost of this Benefit is calculated by us on the basis of the personal circumstances of the Person Covered.

Market Value Reduction
If you cash in your Plan before its maturity date, we retain the right to effect a MVR and increase the surrender charge. MVR cannot be applied
· upon maturity of the Plan
· in the event of the payment of the Death Benefit.
This reduction is designed to protect investors who remain invested and its application means that you get a fair share of the with-profits fund in which your savings are invested.
All charges are reviewable by MAPFRE MSV Life p.l.c. and may be changed after the Plan has started, subject to them providing you with at least 90 days notice if they are changed.
