Yearly Reward Insurance Plan
There are always many things worth celebrating in your life with your loved ones. This is why the Yearly Reward Insurance Plan (the “Plan”) provides you with not only blessings during the important moments in your life, but also appreciation every year that ensures your joy and happiness continue.
“Share Happiness Reward“ for You to Celebrate with Your Loved Ones
You may have special events to celebrate at different stages of your life, particularly when the Insured graduates from university, has children or purchases residential property , you will receive 5% of the Basic Amount as a ”Share Happiness Reward”.
Starting from the 5th Policy Anniversary, you can apply for the “Share Happiness Reward” within 180 days from the occurrence date of the following “Designated Events” on the Insured by submitting specified forms and providing our requested requirements and relevant proof documents at your own cost: (1) has graduated from a university or a higher education institution (Bachelor’s degree or above), (2) has got married, (3) the birth of the Insured’s natural child or natural grandchild, (4) has purchased a residential property, or (5) 65th birthday.
Each “Designated Event” is eligible for the “Share Happiness Reward” for one time only, but you can apply for up to two “Share Happiness Rewards” for each Policy, in which each application must be separated by 3 years. You cannot accumulate the “Share Happiness Reward” in the Policy but can withdraw it immediately.
“Basic Amount” means the amount shown on the Policy Information Page or endorsement as the “Basic Amount”. The “Basic Amount” is used to calculate the Premium, guaranteed Cash Value, guaranteed cash coupons, “Share Happiness Reward”, dividends and Accidental Death Benefit, but is not applicable to the calculation of the death benefit.
An Effective Way to Achieve Your Financial Goals
Guaranteed Cash Coupons
Apart from the ”Share Happiness Reward”, you will also receive a guaranteed cash coupon equivalent to 1.9% of the Basic Amount from the 5th Policy Anniversary until the Insured reaches the Policy Anniversary at the age of 100, allowing you to realise your short-term financial plans.
Furthermore, an additional guaranteed cash coupon equivalent to 10% of the Basic Amount will be provided on the 8th, 18th and 28th Policy Anniversaries, enabling you to achieve your medium-to-long-term financial goals with ease.
The guaranteed cash coupons are provided during the lifetime of the Insured. You may withdraw the coupons immediately or accumulate them in the Policy to earn interest, where the interest rate is non-guaranteed.
On the other hand, you will receive dividends (non-guaranteed) on every Policy Anniversary. You may withdraw your dividends immediately or accumulate them in the Policy to earn interest (the interest rate is non-guaranteed), or to offset against future Premiums for a flexible financial arrangement.
In case the Insured passes away, an amount equivalent to 105% of the accumulated Premiums due and received (excluding the guaranteed cash coupons paid) or the guaranteed Cash Value as of the date of death of the Insured, whichever is higher, will be provided to the Beneficiary as a death benefit. Any accumulated guaranteed cash coupons with interest and accumulated dividends with interest will also be paid in full, less any Indebtedness (if any). The Policy will be terminated thereafter.
Accidental Death Benefit
The Plan provides you with extra coverage while you are working hard to build your career. Before the Insured reaches 66 years of age, if he/she suffers from an injury caused by an Accident and dies from the Accidental injury within 180 days from the date of the occurrence of the Accidental injury (both dates inclusive), an additional 100% of the Basic Amount will be provided as an Accidental Death Benefit, giving your family much-needed financial support.
Terminal Illness Benefit
In case the Insured is diagnosed as suffering from an illness by a Specialist and is confirmed by a consultant 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 as the Terminal Illness Benefit. The benefit of the attached rider(s), if any, will also be advanced. The Policy and the attached rider(s) if any will be terminated thereafter.
When the Policy matures, you may receive an amount equivalent to the guaranteed Cash Value, accumulated guaranteed cash coupons with interest (if any) and accumulated dividends with interest (if any), less any Indebtedness (if any).
Wide Range of Premium Payment Terms for Selection
You can choose a Premium payment term, and even prepay the Premiums to suit your financial plans.
International Emergency Assistance Service
Even if the Insured is diagnosed with an illness or is injured in an accident outside Hong Kong, you do not need to be overly worried as he/she may enjoy comprehensive coverage under the free 24-hour Worldwide Emergency Assistance Service. Please refer to “Important Information” section point 8 for the information of this service.
