New NTUC Income Mortgage Term

NTUC Income has just launched a new term insur­ance called, Mort­gage Term. This is to replace the old Mort­gage Pro­tec­tion Plan, with added cov­er­age for ter­min­al ill­ness and a new loan interest rate of 1%-7%.

More import­antly, the premi­um rates are more com­pet­it­ive and you do not need any mort­gage loan doc­u­ment to buy this insur­ance plan. There­fore, it can be treated as decreas­ing term insur­ance, with the pro­tec­tion value decreases yearly at the selec­ted interest rate till zero pro­tec­tion at the policy end date. The premi­um pay­able is the total policy years minus 2 years.

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.
