Income shall not be respons­ible for all war­ranties, expressed or implied, includ­ing implied war­ranties of mer­chant­ab­il­ity, and fit­ness for a par­tic­u­lar pur­pose and against infringe­ment of intel­lec­tual prop­erty rights in respect of the Vouch­ers or any Replace­ment Item.

The pre­cise terms, con­di­tions and exclu­sions of these plans are spe­cified in their respect­ive policy con­tract. All our products are developed to bene­fit our cus­tom­ers but not all may be suit­able for your spe­cific needs. If you are unsure if this plan is suit­able for you, we strongly encour­age you to speak to a qual­i­fied insur­ance adviser. Oth­er­wise, you may end up buy­ing a plan that does not meet your expect­a­tions or needs. As a res­ult, you may not be able to afford the premi­ums or get the insur­ance pro­tec­tion you want. Buy­ing a life insur­ance plan is a long-term com­mit­ment on your part. If you can­cel your plan pre­ma­turely, the cash value you receive can be sub­stan­tially less than the premi­ums you have paid for the plan.

New savings and protection plans from NTUC Income

NTUC Income has just launched two new insur­ance plans, Term­Life Solit­aire and Lim­ited Premium Revosave with bet­ter cov­er­age and lower premium, for insured up to 75 years old.

The pro­tec­tion value is con­stant through­out the years of cov­er­age as it is not entitled to any bonus declared by NTUC Income. There is no cash value at any point in time since this is a pure pro­tec­tion plan. For sum assured of $1,500,000 and below, there is no med­ical exam­in­a­tion required!

There are 5 riders that can be added to this plan:-

  1. Dis­ab­il­ity Accel­er­ator – cov­ers Total and Per­man­ent Dis­ab­il­ity (TPD) before age 70 with min­imum sum assured of $1,000,000.

Not only it offers bet­ter interest rate, it provides pro­tec­tion against death, Total per­man­ent Dis­ab­il­ity (Lost of sight, two legs etc.) regard­less of your cur­rent health. It is 100% guar­an­tee to be accep­ted. You will be covered for 105% of the premium paid through­out the cov­er­age! If it is acci­dental death or TPD before age 70, an addi­tional 100% of the sum assured on top of the death/TPD bene­fit will be paid out too. You are eli­gible to apply if you are 75 years old and below.

This is how Lim­ited Pay Revosave works.

1) You save a fixed sum of money to NTUC Income for 3,5,10 or 15 years.

2) At the end of second year, NTUC Income will return part of the premium back (5% of the sum assured called cash­back) to you. You can choose to a) Spend it. b) Save with us at cur­rent 3.5% per annum interest in deposit account issued by Income

3) At any point in time, you can with­draw the money from the Deposit account.

4) The policy will end at the chosen policy term of 10, 15,20 or 25 years. All matur­ity pro­ceeds will be paid out, together with the cash­back and interest earned in the deposit account.

NTUC Income New Asian Bond Fund with monthly payout features

NTUC Income has launched a new fund, Asian Bond Fund that intends to dis­trib­ute monthly dividend pay­out of 4.5%-5.5% per annum.

The Asian Bond Fund aims to provide a medium to long-term rate of return by invest­ing mainly in Asian Fixed Income Secur­it­ies. The sub-fund is inves­ted in the Black­Rock Global Funds– Asian Tiger Bond Fund A6 SGD Hedged Share Class (the under­ly­ing fund).

The under­ly­ing fund will invest at least 70% of its total assets in the fixed income trans­fer­able secur­it­ies of issuers dom­i­ciled in, or exer­cising the pre­dom­in­ant part of their eco­nomic activ­ity in, Asian Tiger coun­tries (i.e. South Korea, the People’s Repub­lic of China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Phil­ip­pines, Thai­l­and, Malay­sia, Singa­pore, Viet­nam, Cam­bodia, Laos, Myan­mar, Indone­sia, Macau, India and Pakistan). The under­ly­ing fund may also invest in the full spec­trum of avail­able secur­it­ies, includ­ing non-investment grade. It may use fin­an­cial deriv­at­ive instru­ments for effi­cient port­fo­lio man­age­ment or to hedge mar­ket, interest rate and cur­rency risk.

The sub-fund offers a monthly pay­out fea­ture and intends to provide a monthly dis­tri­bu­tion with effect from 27 May 2016. The Man­ager intends to pay the dis­tri­bu­tion within 45 days from the declar­a­tion date. The declar­a­tion date is set on the 3rd last busi­ness day of every month. The declar­a­tion date is sub­ject to review and the Man­ager has the sole dis­cre­tion to determ­ine the rate and fre­quency of the dis­tri­bu­tion. Dis­tri­bu­tions are not guar­an­teed and can be made out of income, cap­ital gains, and/or cap­ital of the sub-fund.

More import­antly, NTUC Income will guar­an­tee 105% of the invest­ment amount or cash value, whichever is higher, in the event of untimely death or Total Per­man­ent Dis­ab­il­ity (TPD before age 70) before age 65. After age 65, it is 100% of the invest­ment amount or cash value, whichever is higher, in the event of untimely death. This is on top of the monthly with­drawal of the dividends over the years.

The min­imum single premium to invest is $10,000.

Fund Man­ager: NTUC Income

Sub-Investment Man­ager: Black­Rock (Lux­em­bourg) S.A.

Ini­tial Sales Charge: 3% (For single premium and top-up)

Annual Man­age­ment Fee: 1% p.a.

Annual Policy Fee from 2nd year onwards: $50, waive if invest­ment amount is $25,000 and above.

For example, below is the hypo­thet­ical illus­tra­tion of how the dividend will be calculated.

Invest­ment $100,000
Offer Price $1
Num­ber of units $100,000/$1 = 100,000
Dividend Rate $0.004053 per unit
Dividend pay­able 100,000*0.004053 = $405.30

Sub­scrip­tion Method: Cash/SRS

New Silver Protect to cover early stage cancer, fractures, hospice care and death

NTUC Income has launched another great term insur­ance plan “Sil­ver Pro­tect” spe­cially for those from 50 years to 74 years old to cover the following:-

  • Early stage can­cers — 25% of the sum assured upon dia­gnosis of an early stage can­cer. Sum assured will not be reduced by this payout.
  • Advanced stage can­cers — 100% of the sum assured upon dia­gnosis of an advanced stage can­cer. If there was no claim made for an early stage can­cer bene­fit, addi­tional 25% of the sum assured will be paid. All future premium pay­ments will be waived.
  • Acci­dental frac­tures — Up to 20% of the sum assured in the event of an acci­dental frac­ture. The amount of bene­fit pay­able is depend­ent on the site of the fracture.
  • Hos­pice care in the event of ter­minal can­cer — Up to 15% of the sum assured for hos­pice and pal­li­at­ive care in the event of ter­minal cancer.
  • Acci­dental death — 100% of the sum assured in the event of acci­dental death. If due to a restric­ted activ­ity, 30% of the sum assured will be paid instead.
  • Non-accidental death — $5,000 in the event of death not due to an acci­dent. If it hap­pens within one year from the cover start date, 100% of the total premi­ums paid will be refun­ded instead.

The sum assured offered are $50,000, $80,000 for $100,000 and renewal is guar­an­teed every 10 years till age 84. NTUC Income may provide cover even if you have exist­ing non-cancer related med­ical conditions.
