Sub­sequent increase in sum assured or premi­ums, top-ups or applic­a­tions for riders, even if made dur­ing the Pro­mo­tion Period, for such policies will not entitle the cus­tom­ers to any addi­tional Vouch­ers. For avoid­ance of doubt, cus­tom­ers with any Reg­u­lar Premium Life Policies includ­ing any rider(s) issued, whether before or dur­ing the Pro­mo­tion Period and whether with any Vouch­ers enti­tle­ment, who sub­sequently increase their sum assured or premium, top-ups or apply for riders dur­ing the Pro­mo­tion Period will not be entitled to any Vouch­ers under this Promotion.

The full value refers to the stated worth price or the face value of the Vouchers.
  8. Income will issue a redemp­tion let­ter for the Vouch­ers to eli­gible cus­tom­ers 1 month after the policy issue date, provided that the policy is inforce as of that date. The redemp­tion let­ter will be mailed to cus­tom­ers at their address registered with Income.

  14. Usage of the Vouch­ers is sub­ject to terms and con­di­tions imposed by the merchant.
  15. Income is not the man­u­fac­turer or mer­chant of the Vouch­ers or any Replace­ment Item, and provides no war­ranty in respect of it. 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.
  16. No joint ven­ture, spon­sor­ship, tie up, agency or any other rela­tion­ship is inten­ded or cre­ated between Income and mer­chants or man­u­fac­tur­ers of the Vouch­ers or replace­ment items. Neither is this Pro­mo­tion inten­ded or deemed to be a con­nec­tion with or use of the brand name of mer­chants or replace­ment item(s).

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.

Inform­a­tion is cor­rect as of 13 Feb­ru­ary 2017

Launch of Global Income Fund from NTUC Income

NTUC Income has just launched a new fund, Global Income Fund that intends to dis­trib­ute monthly dividend pay­out of 4–5% per annum.

The Global Income Fund aims to provide income and cap­ital growth over the medium to longer term by invest­ing primar­ily in global equit­ies and global fixed income secur­it­ies dir­ectly or indir­ectly through the use of Invest­ment Funds or fin­an­cial deriv­at­ive instru­ments (includ­ing, but not lim­ited to, futures, options and credit default swaps). The under­ly­ing Fund is act­ively man­aged between asset classes, allow­ing it to achieve the object­ive of achiev­ing yield and max­im­iz­ing total returns dur­ing all phases of the eco­nomic cycle.

The sub-fund aims to provide a sus­tain­able level of income. It invests in a broad range of assets from around the world, and seeks to identify attract­ive sources of income whilst diver­si­fy­ing risk. The sub-fund intends to achieve this object­ive by invest­ing all or sub­stan­tially all of its assets in Sch­roder Inter­na­tional Selec­tion Fund Global Multi-Asset Income which is man­aged by Sch­roder Invest­ment Man­age­ment Limited.

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 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 Cur­rent Pro­mo­tion offers a 10% bonus on the net amount of the new dis­tri­bu­tion declared for Global Income Fund and will be given each month, up to 22 Septem­ber 2015. This bonus is only pay­able once for each dis­tri­bu­tion arising from net new invest­ments and top-ups. It is not applic­able to monthly dis­tri­bu­tion arising from switches into this fund. The declar­a­tion of the dividend rate will be announced on the fourth Tues­day of the month, start­ing from 28 April 2015. NTUC Income will pay or re-invest the dis­tri­bu­tion within 45 days from the declar­a­tion date.

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

For example, if Mr Lee invests in Global Income Fund and gets a monthly dis­tri­bu­tion of $500 per month. The 10% bonus pay­able for each dis­tri­bu­tion is $50 dur­ing this pro­mo­tion period as shown below:

Declar­a­tion Date in 2015 28 April 26 May 23 June 28 July 25 August 22 Septem­ber
Monthly Dis­tri­bu­tion $500 $500 $500 $500 $500 $500
10% Bonus $50 $50 $50 $50 $50 $50

The extra bonus pay­able based on the above example is $300.

NTUC Income has just launched a new short-term sav­ings plan, LP Revosave (5 pay 10) with the fea­ture of allow­ing you to with­draw cash­back (5% of Sum Assured) from the end of 2nd year onwards.

This plan provides a very good altern­at­ive to sav­ings in a bank. 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-to-date through­out the term.

This is how LP Revosave (5 Pay 10) works.

1. You save a fixed sum of money to NTUC Income for 5 years.
2. At the end of second year, NTUC Income will return part of the premium back (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.

The policy will mature in 10 years’ time. An example for a Male age 40 years old with Sum Assured $23,850 is as shown in the table below:

Pay­ment Term Monthly Sav­ings Yearly Premium Yearly Cash­back (From 2nd year onwards) Total Premium Paid Total Cash upon matur­ity (Non-withdrawal) Total Cash upon matur­ity (With yearly withdrawal)
