MyTreasure Insurance Plan (Supreme)
With regular guaranteed cash coupons, MyTreasure Insurance Plan (Supreme) (the “Plan”) offers you a stable stream of income regardless of economy so that you can accomplish various financial goals. The Plan also provides you with long-term wealth accumulation potential through non-guaranteed dividends and terminal dividend. In addition, you can also pass a legacy to the future generations to plan for a prosperous future for your loved ones.
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 guaranteed cash coupons right after the Plan is in force. The coupons are payable until the beginning of the 25th policy year.
|Premium payment term||Guaranteed cash coupons (percentage of the basic amount1)|
In addition, you can receive an additional cash coupon which is equal to 3.0% (applicable to 5-year premium payment term policy(ies)) or 2.5% (applicable to 10-year premium payment term policy(ies)) of the basic amount1 at the beginning of the 25th policy year.
You may leave the guaranteed cash coupons in the policy to accumulate interest2, or withdraw3 that, or use that to pay future premiums.
Dividends payable starting from the 25th policy anniversary
Non-guaranteed dividends2(if any) will be payable every year from the 25th policy anniversary onwards, allowing you to accumulate wealth continuously. You may leave the non-guaranteed dividends in the policy to accumulate interest2 or withdraw3 the money as you wish.
Bolster your returns with terminal dividend
Depending on premium payment term and policy currency, the Plan will provide terminal dividend4 (if any) from the 10th policy anniversary the earliest, which helps to further boost up the potential return.
Maturity benefit helps preserve your capital
When the insured reaches age 138, the Plan will provide a maturity benefit which is equivalent to the guaranteed cash value plus accumulated guaranteed cash coupons and interest (if any), accumulated non-guaranteed dividends and interest (if any), and terminal dividend (if any), less all indebtedness (if any). The policy will be terminated thereafter.
Unlimited change of insured to pass on wealth across generations
The Plan gives your wealth more time to grow and pass on through generations. It allows you to change the insured at any time after the policyholder has paid out all the premium in the 5th policy year (applicable to 5-year premium payment term policy(ies)) or the 10th policy year (applicable to 10-year premium payment term policy(ies)) for unlimited times while the insured is alive. The benefit term will be extended to age 138 of the new insured5 upon each change.
Life protection provides peace of mind to your loved ones
If the insured passes away while the policy is in force, we will pay the beneficiary a death benefit which is equivalent to:
101% of the accumulated premium due and paid after deducting guaranteed cash coupons paid, or the guaranteed cash value of the basic plan at the date of death of the insured, whichever is higher;
+ accumulated guaranteed cash coupons and interest (if any);
+ accumulated non-guaranteed dividends and interest (if any);
+ terminal dividend (if any);
- all indebtedness (if any).
B.Accidental death benefit
The Plan provides accidental death benefit to the beneficiary. In the event the insured unfortunately dies from an accidental injury, the beneficiary will receive an additional coverage.
Prior to the insured reaches age 66 and within the 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 amount1 or HKD500,000/USD62,500, whichever is lower, in addition to the death benefit. This policy shall then terminate.
If the insured is covered under other policies issued by the Company, the total amount payable by the Company for the death of insured due to accident shall not exceed HKD1,000,000/USD125,000.
C.Death benefit and accidental death benefit settlement option
While the insured is alive, he or she can choose how the death benefit and accidental death benefit (if any) is to be paid6 to safeguard his or her family’s financial future. The benefits can be settled in a lump sum or by annual instalments with a fixed amount over a fixed payment term of 10 or 20 years.
If the death benefit at the date of the insured’s death is less than HKD400,000/ USD50,000, or the policyholder does not specify any settlement option, we will pay out the benefit amount to the beneficiary in a lump sum.
To enable you to achieve your goal with ease, the Plan offers simplified underwriting procedures of which no medical examination is required.
