Probate Support

We now partner with Canada Life as our Group Life Cover provider and as part of this arrangement employees are able to access probate support (As CIJC employees life cover is not under this policy they do not have access to this benefit however they can utilise the the Company Employee Assistance Programme).

Losing a breadwinner can be devastating for a family’s finances. Mortgage repayments, funeral costs, childcare – the extra costs can be overwhelming. We believe in looking after our people. That’s why we’ve provided you with life insurance from Canada Life, as part of your employee benefits package. And it won’t cost you a penny.

What is life insurance?

Life insurance provides a cash pay-out to your family if you die. It’s a financial safety net that protects your family if the worst happens. See your contract of employment for your specific life cover terms.
