MyTreasure Insurance Plan
MyTreasure Insurance Plan (the “Plan”) is a savings and life protection plan for you to save for your future while giving you protection. By paying Premium for 5 years only, you can enjoy the annual distribution of guaranteed cash coupons during the first 25 Policy Years and also a couple of other benefits to achieve wealth accumulation.
Provides you with Guaranteed Cash Coupons during the First 25 Policy Years
To provide you with stable return as early as possible, the guaranteed Cash Coupons of the Plan will be distributed at the beginning of each Policy Year. That means you will start to enjoy the distribution of guaranteed Cash Coupons right after your first premium payment. The amount is equivalent to 3.0% of the Basic Amount which will be distributed until the beginning of the 25th Policy Years. You may withdraw the Cash Coupons immediately or keep it in the Policy account to accumulate interest, depending on your financial needs.
“Basic Amount” means the amount shown on the Policy Information Page or endorsement as the “Basic Amount”. The “Basic Amount” is used to calculate Premium, guaranteed Cash Value, Accidental Death Benefit (if any), Cash Coupons, Dividends and Terminal Dividend, but it is not applicable to the calculation of the Death Benefit. If the Basic Amount has been amended while this Policy is in force, the said Premium, guaranteed Cash Value, Accidental Death Benefit, Cash Coupons, Dividends and Terminal Dividend will be adjusted accordingly.
Dividends Payable Starting from the 25th Policy Year
Dividends (if any) will be payable every year from the 25th Policy Anniversary onwards, ensuring you to receive excess cash flow and accumulate wealth. You may leave the dividends in the Policy account to accumulate interest1; or withdraw, or use it to offset against future Premiums.
The Plan also provides Terminal Dividend2 (if any) which is a one-off entitlement payable on or after the 10th policy anniversary upon policy surrender, or upon policy maturity or the death of the insured (whichever is the earliest).
Maturity Benefit to Celebrate Your Birthday
Your 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.
Premium Payment Period as Short as 5 Years
In case the Insured passes away, the Beneficiary will receive the death benefits:You only need to pay the Premium for 5 years to enjoy coverage until the age of 138 of the Insured. Furthermore, the Premium remains unchanged once it has been determined, helping you to plan ahead for the future.
Life Protection for Better Peace of Mind
If the Insured passes away, we will pay the Death Benefit which is equivalent to: 101% of the Accumulated Premium Due and Received after deducting Cash Coupons, or the guaranteed Cash Value at the date of death of the Insured, whichever is higher; plus any accumulated Cash Coupons with interest (if any),accumulated Dividend with interest (if any) and Terminal Dividend (if any), less any Indebtedness (if any).
Accidental Death Benefit
The Plan provides free accidental death benefit to the beneficiary. In the event the Insured unfortunately dies from the Accident injury, the beneficiary will receive an additional coverage. While the Policy is in force, prior to the Insured reaches age 66 and within first 10 Policy Years from the Policy Effective Date, if the Insured suffers from Accidental injury caused by an Accident, and dies from the Accidental injury within 180 days (both dates inclusive) from the date of the occurrence of the Accidental injury, the Company will pay to the Beneficiary 100% of the Basic Amount or USD62,500/HKD500,000, whichever is lower in addition to the death benefit. This Policy shall then terminate. Accidental Death Benefit payable per Insured under all policies of the Plan is subject to a maximum aggregate claim amount of USD125,000/HKD1,000,000 for each Insured.
To enable you to achieve your goal with ease, application of the Plan is easy. Simplified underwriting procedures are available and no medical examination is required

|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.|

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.|

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).|
