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.

Term Insur­ance

Term­Life Solit­aire is a reg­u­lar premium term insur­ance that will cover the insured (age 74 last birth date or below) against Death and Ter­minal Ill­ness for at least $1 mil­lion, up to a max­imum age of 100 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.
  2. Dread Dis­ease Accel­er­ator – cov­ers the 39 dread dis­eases with min­imum sum assured of $500,000.
  3. Dread Dis­ease Premium Waiver – waive future premium when poli­cy­holder is dia­gnosed with dread disease.
  4. Payor Premium Waiver – waive future premium when poli­cy­holder dies or is dia­gnosed with TPD.
  5. Enhanced Payor Premium Waiver — waive future premium when poli­cy­holder dies or is dia­gnosed with TPD or crit­ical illness.

 

Lim­ited Pay Revosave

Lim­ited Pay Revosave is a reg­u­lar sav­ings plan that 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 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.

  • 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.

j) Start premium rebates earlier from age 66, instead of age 71

The addi­tional costs arising from the expec­ted higher claims from those with pre-existing con­di­tions will be shared across those with pre-existing con­di­tions, the exist­ing insured poli­cy­hold­ers, and the Gov­ern­ment. Those with pre-existing con­di­tions will pay higher premi­ums at an addi­tional 30% for a period of 10 years, in view of higher risks. The premium increase for the remain­ing poli­cy­hold­ers as a res­ult of uni­ver­sal cov­er­age should be no more than 3% from cur­rent premiums.

The private Integ­rated Shield Plan (IP) con­sists of two parts – the basic MediShield plan and a top-up por­tion. As an Integ­rated Shield Plan poli­cy­holder, you enjoy the com­bined bene­fits of MediShield, which is run by CPF Board, and the enhanced bene­fits of the top-up por­tion, which is run by your private insurer. When imple­men­ted, MediShield Life will replace the cur­rent MediShield por­tion of your IP.

Because MediShield Life will provide cov­er­age for all pre-existing con­di­tions, you will also enjoy the MediShield Life cov­er­age, for life, includ­ing for any pre-existing con­di­tions that you may have. This will apply even if the con­di­tion is excluded fromthe top-up cov­er­age by your Integ­rated Shield insurer.

As the admin­is­trator of MediShield Life, the CPF Board will assess all claims from the IP poli­cy­hold­ers and make pay­outs accord­ing to the MediShield Life bene­fits. The CPF Board will for­ward MediShield Life pay­outs to the private insurer, who will com­pute its share of cov­er­age and then provide the com­bined pay­out to the hos­pit­als directly.

All Integ­rated Shield Plan poli­cy­hold­ers will also receive cov­er­age for life under MediShield Life. Because Integ­rated Shield Plans premi­ums include a MediShield com­pon­ent which will become MediShield Life in future, eli­gible IP poli­cy­hold­ers will also receive sub­sidies from the Gov­ern­ment to help pay for part of their MediShield Life premium.

When MediShield shifts to MediShield Life, the premium for the MediShield por­tion will increase due to the MediShield Life changes. Hence, the over­all premium for Integ­rated Shield Plans may also increase.

The Life Insur­ance Asso­ci­ation has assured the MediShield Life Review Com­mit­tee that the bene­fit recom­mend­a­tions made by the Com­mit­tee will have min­imal impact on the IP (i.e. top-up) com­pon­ent of premi­ums of Integ­rated Shield Plans. Insurers will assess the impact of the MediShield Life changes on the over­all IP premium and will advise their poli­cy­hold­ers when the changes are confirmed.

All Singa­pore cit­izens will be eli­gible for the fol­low­ing sub­sidies on their MediShield Life premi­ums: trans­itional sub­sidies to cush­ion the increase in their pay­able MediShield premium, as well as Pion­eer Gen­er­a­tion MediShield sub­sidies if they are Pion­eers and MediShield Life premium sub­sidies if they meet the income cri­teria. All Integ­rated Shield Plan poli­cy­hold­ers will enjoy the same sub­sidies for the MediShield Life com­pon­ent of their IP premiums.

The Gov­ern­ment will release more inform­a­tion on how you will be assessed for the premium sub­sidies when ready.
