Pupil Personal Accident Insurance
Why is the Allianz Pupil Personal Accident Scheme the Best for your School.

Unlimited Time Period - The Allianz Pupil Personal Accident Policy does not have a time limit in which follow on claims can be made. This is a unique benefit for the Allianz Policy as our competitors have a set time limit in which these insured expenses can be claimed. For example, if a claim is made by a pupil for dental expenses when he/she is 6 yrs old, they may have follow on costs for years to come as a result. Our Pupil Personal Accident Policy will continue to pay these dental expenses (subject to the limit of €50,000) until the need for care has ceased.

No Excess – The Allianz Pupil Personal Accident Policy has no excess in the event of a claim, meaning parents can claim all insured expenses and not just a portion of them.

High Benefit Limits – The Allianz Pupil Personal Accident Scheme provides Medical & Dental Expense Benefits of €50,000 for each. 99% of all Pupil Personal Accident claims are made under these benefits.

Online Premium Saving – 20% Saving on your premium, when cover is arranged online.

Straightforward Claims Settlement – Allianz are the tried and trusted insurer in this field and have a typical claims settlement period of only two weeks.

Purchasing the Allianz Pupil Personal Accident Policy has never been easier. Simply log onto, proceed to the Pupil Personal Accident section of the website and purchase your policy

Services your Local Allianz Representative can provide your School, free of charge.

Your Board of Management is responsible for setting your Buildings & Contents Sums Insured. An indicative reinstatement valuation will assist you and your Board of Management decide on the appropriate level of protection.
  • Assist with the completion of risk assessments of your School property. This may help reduce the possibility of an accident occurring and can inform your Safety Statement.

  • Meet with the Principal, member of the Board of Management or other nominated School personnel to discuss insurance related issues.
