Brexit Notification – Disclosure of information about the impact of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.
- Following the June 2016 referendum vote to leave the European Union (EU), the United Kingdom (UK) Government started the exit process (‘Brexit’) by triggering Article 50 of the Treaty on EU in March 2017. Our number one priority is to serve and support our customers. New Ireland Assurance Company plc (‘New Ireland’) is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland to act as a life assurance undertaking in the Irish market and does not passport its services to the UK. New Ireland is a member of Bank of Ireland Group.
- On Friday 29 March 2019, MPs voted against the Withdrawal Agreement. The EU Council has since agreed a flexible extension to Article 50 until 31 October 2019.
- New Ireland has a small number of agreements in place with service providers who are at present located in the UK. Our current regulatory status won’t be affected by Brexit and we’ll continue to operate as we do today. We will update this notification as further information becomes available to us and will continue to consider the impact of Brexit on our operations to endeavour to ensure there is no material impact on our customers. If you require more information at this stage, please contact our Customer Service Team on 01 523 9810*.
- Our Brexit planning continues unchanged.
- We will continue to monitor the situation and regularly review our plans to ensure we’re ready for Brexit, New Ireland’s aim is to support customers with the same level of service and range of products as we do today.
