Features of the Plan

  • Guaranteed Income Payable Every Month until Age 108You have to decide the amount of your guaranteed monthly income (or Basic Amount) upon Policy application. Such amount will be provided to you every monthiversary from the Policy Anniversary at age 60 until Policy maturity when you reach 108.

    For a 40 year-old, non-smoking male, enrolling in the Plan with a Premium Payment Term to age 60, and paying the Premium annually, the total guaranteed monthly income he will  receive from age 60 to  108, which is 48 years in total, will be approximately 255% of the total Premiums he has paid.   
  • Dividends Payable AltogetherIn addition, dividends (if any) will also be payable as non-guaranteed monthly income along with the guaranteed monthly income, so that you can build a plentiful retirement reserve.
  • Flexible Options to Suit Your NeedsYou can choose to withdraw your monthly income (both the guaranteed and non-guaranteed amount) immediately for paying daily expenses, or accumulate it in the Policy to earn interest, to suit your needs.
  • Maturity Benefit to Celebrate Your BirthdayYour Policy matures when you reach age 108. By that time, you will receive a lump sum amount equivalent to the accumulated guaranteed monthly income with interest (if any), accumulated dividend with interest (if any), and maturity dividend (if any), less any Indebtedness (if any) to celebrate your birthday, and the Policy will be terminated thereafter.
  • Life Protection for Better Peace of MindIn case the Insured passes away, the Beneficiary will receive the death benefits:

    If the Insured passes away prior to the Policy Anniversary of the Insured is reached age 60 – the Beneficiary will receive 108% of the Accumulated Premium Due and Received or the guaranteed Cash Value at the date of death of the Insured, whichever is higher.

    If the Insured passes away after the Policy Anniversary of the Insured is reached age 60 –the Beneficiary will receive an amount equal to 108% of the Accumulated Premium Due and Received after deducting the guaranteed monthly income paid, or the guaranteed Cash Value at the date of death of the Insured, whichever is higher.

    Any accumulated guaranteed monthly income with interest and accumulated dividend with interest (in the case that the Insured passes away during or after the payment of the guaranteed monthly income), as well as special dividend will be paid in full, less any Indebtedness (if any).

    The death benefit can be paid in a lump sum, or annually for 10 or 20 years, to the Beneficiary according to the Policyholder’s instructions. The death benefit amount that has not been paid will be accumulated in the Policy to earn interest until the end of the payment period. China Life (Overseas) will determine the interest rate from time to time and calculate the interest annually. The derived interest is paid together with the last instalment of the death benefit payment, and the Policy will be terminated thereafter. In case the Beneficiary passes away during the death benefit payment period, the unpaid death benefit amount and interest (if any) will be paid to the estate and the Policy will be terminated thereafter.

    If the death benefit amount on the date of death of the Insured is less than HKD400,000 or USD50,000, or the Policyholder has not indicated the way of receiving the benefit, the Beneficiary will receive a lump sum.   

  • Terminal Illness BenefitIn case the Insured is diagnosed as suffering from a terminal illness by a Specialist and it is confirmed by a Registered Medical Practitioner designated by us that the Insured is expected to pass away within 12 months, the death benefit of the Plan will be advanced in a lump sum as the Terminal Illness Benefit, and the Policy will be terminated thereafter.
  • Simplified UnderwritingYou may enrol in the plan via simplified underwriting. Enrolment is easy!
  • International Emergency Assistance ServiceIf the Insured is diagnosed with an illness or is injured in an accident outside Hong Kong, he or she will enjoy comprehensive coverage under the free 24-hour Worldwide Emergency Assistance Service.

What are the key product risks?

Credit risk:

This product is a life insurance Policy issued by China Life (Overseas). Any Premium paid will become part of our assets and our financial strength will affect our ability to meet our contractual obligations to you under the Policy. Therefore this product is subject to our credit risk.

Early surrender risk:

The savings component of the Plan is subject to risks and possible losses. Should you surrender the Policy early, you may receive an amount considerably less than the total amount of Premiums paid.

Exchange rate and Currency risks:

Any Policy with foreign currencies involves risks, such as potential changes in political or economic conditions that may substantially affect the price or liquidity of a currency. The fluctuations in exchange rates may also cause financial losses to you during currency conversions. You should consider the potential currency and exchange rate risks before deciding which Policy currency you should take.

Inflation risk:

The cost of living in the future may be higher than expected due to the effects of inflation. Therefore, your current planned benefits and/or returns may be insufficient to meet your future needs even if we fulfill all of our contractual terms and obligations.

Liquidity and Withdrawal risk:

You are obliged to hold the Policy and pay the Premium for the designated period of time. If you terminate the Policy prior to the Policy Maturity Date, you will suffer a financial loss. In case you make partial withdrawals from the Policy, your account value, death benefit and other Policy values will be reduced, and you may need to pay the relevant handling fee or charges (if any).

Non-guaranteed Benefit:

This Plan consists of non-guaranteed benefits and/or returns. The actual amounts of benefits and/or returns in the future may be different from the benefits and/or returns which project on the product materials. The product materials are for illustrative purposes only.

Policy Termination:

The Policy will be terminated if (a) the Policy has lapsed or is surrendered; (b) the Policy maturity benefit is paid; (c) the death benefit is fully paid, (d) the Terminal Illness Benefit is paid; (e) the due Premium has not been paid within 31 days after the Premium Due Date and the Policy has no remaining guaranteed Cash Value; or (f) the Indebtedness of this Policy is equal to or exceeds the guaranteed Cash Value of this Policy.
