#MeFirst

We tend to be excessively generous with others, and often act on the opinions and expectations of others rather than what's best for us. However, when we prioritise the needs of others before ours and the desire to please or impress those around us, we tend to think less about our personal needs and eventually fail to plan for our own retirement.

Having a “Me First” mentality when it comes to financial planning ensures that we set aside enough for ourselves before spending on others and things in life that are important to us.

It does not have regard to the specific investment objectives, financial situation and particular needs of any persons. Do note that not all our plans are included on this website. 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 advisor. 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, if applicable, may be zero or less than the premiums you have paid for the plan.

These policies are protected under the Policy Owners’ Protection Scheme which is administered by the Singapore Deposit Insurance Corporation (SDIC). Coverage for your policy is automatic and no further action is required from you. For more information on the types of benefits that are covered under the scheme as well as the limits of coverage, where applicable, please contact Income or visit the GIA/LIA or SDIC web-sites (www.gia.org.sg or www.lia.org.sg or www.sdic.org.sg).

Footnotes

ft1 If the insured survives at the end of two years from the policy entry date and premiums for this policy have been paid for at least two years, you will start to receive cash payouts after the end of the 2nd policy year. The cash payout consists of a yearly cash benefit, which is 3% of your sum assured, and a non-guaranteed cash bonus, which is up to 5.40% of your sum assured (based on a 5 year premium term for a policy term till age 120 and the assumption that the Life Participating Fund earns a long-term average return of 4.25% per annum). The non-guaranteed yearly cash bonus is dependent on the premium term and policy term, and may vary according to the future performance of the Life Participating Fund. If the Life Participating Fund earns a long-term average return of 3.00% per annum, the non-guaranteed cash bonus will be up to 2.97% of the sum assured (based on a 5 year premium term for a policy term till age 120). The policyholder will receive the final yearly cash benefit and cash bonus as a lump-sum with the maturity benefit if the insured is still alive and the policy has not ended. The policy will end once this payment is made.

If the sum assured of the policy is at least $80,000, the yearly cash payouts can be received in monthly payments. The amount of each monthly cash benefit payment will be worked out. The policyholder cannot change the payout frequency once the first cash benefit is paid.

ft2 You will start to receive 5% of your sum assured as your yearly cash benefit starting from the end of the 2nd policy year if you have paid the premiums for at least 2 years. You will continue to receive your cash benefit at subsequent policy anniversaries if the insured is still alive and your policy has not been converted to paid-up or ended.

ft3 Only yourself (policyholder before the age of 65 years old), your spouse (before the age of 65 years old), or your child or ward (before the age of 18 years old) can be the secondary insured at the time of exercising this option. You can exercise this option to appoint a secondary insured no more than three times, and provided the following conditions are met:
- The premium of this policy is paid only with cash;
- No nomination of beneficiary has been made for this policy; and
- There is no change to the ownership of this policy including assignment, bankruptcy and trust.

ft4 For regular premium policy, Gro Retire Flex includes Gro Retire Flex – Protection Benefit, a non-participating rider, which includes the Accidental Death Benefit, Disability Care Benefit and Retrenchment Benefit. Please refer to the policy contract for further details.

ft5 If the insured dies as a result of an accident (before the anniversary immediately after the insured reaches the age of 70), we will pay an additional 105% of all net premium(s) paid, on top of the death benefit, as long as the insured was not taking part in a restricted activity at the time of the accident. If the insured was taking part in a restricted activity at the time of the accident, we will only pay an additional 63% of all net premium(s) paid, on top of the death benefit. We will pay this benefit only if the death happens within 365 days of the accident. Please refer to the policy contract for further details. If you have appointed a secondary insured before the insured dies as a result of an accident (before the anniversary immediately after insured reaches the age of 70), we will not pay this benefit. Upon the accidental death of the insured, the secondary insured becomes the insured and the basic policy and its rider, Gro Retire Flex – Protection Benefit, will continue.

ft6 Disability Care Benefit will apply upon diagnosis of the insured with any one of the conditions – loss of use of one limb, loss of speech, loss of sight of one eye and loss of hearing, arising from accidental injury or sickness during the term of the Gro Retire Flex – Protection Benefit rider. The benefit will be paid according to the date of diagnosis. There are certain conditions under which no benefits will be payable. Please refer to the policy contract for the definition of each condition and the circumstances in which a claim can be made.

ft7 If the insured survives at the end of 2 years from the policy entry date, you will start to receive cash payouts starting from the 25th policy month after the policy entry date. The monthly cash payout consists of the guaranteed monthly cash benefit and the non-guaranteed monthly cash bonus. The guaranteed monthly cash benefit is 0.104% of the net single premium, while your non-guaranteed monthly cash bonus is up to 0.20% of your net single premium (based on the assumption that the Life Participating Fund earns a long-term average return of 4.25% per annum). Over 12 months, you would receive 1.248% of the net single premium as guaranteed cash benefit and up to 2.40% of the net single premium as non-guaranteed cash bonus. The non-guaranteed monthly cash bonus may vary according to the future performance of the Life Participating Fund. If the Life Participating Fund earns a long-term average return of 3.00% per annum, the non-guaranteed monthly cash bonus will be up to 0.1025% of the net single premium. You will continue to receive your monthly cash payout at subsequent policy months if the insured is still alive and the policy has not ended. Net single premium means the single premium amount as shown in the policy schedule, or the reduced single premium amount if a part of the policy has been cashed in earlier.

ft8 Only yourself (policyholder before the age of 65 years old), your spouse (before the age of 65 years old), or your child or ward (before the age of 18 years old) can be the secondary insured at the time of exercising this option. You can exercise this option to appoint a secondary insured no more than three times, and provided the following conditions are met:
- The premium of this policy is paid only with cash;
- No nomination of beneficiary has been made for this policy; and
- There is no change to the ownership of this policy including assignment, bankruptcy and trust. The secondary insured becomes the insured of this policy only upon death of the insured for the remaining policy term. The policy can only have one insured at any point of time.

ft9 The original insured means the insured that was appointed when the policy was issued.

ft10 During the policy term, if the insured becomes terminally ill or dies, before the policy anniversary immediately after the insured reaches the age of 80, 100% of sum assured and 100% of non-guaranteed bonuses, or minimum protection value of the basic policy, whichever is higher will be paid. The minimum protection value of the basic policy depends on the age of the insured at policy entry date (age last birthday), and could be up to 320% of the sum assured. If the insured becomes terminally ill or dies, on or after the policy anniversary immediately after the insured reaches the age of 80, 100% of the sum assured and 100% of non-guaranteed bonuses will be paid

ft11 Heritage Solitaire includes a non-participating compulsory rider, Heritage Solitaire – Protection Benefit. This rider pays part of the minimum protection value and an extra lump sum for accidental death. Please refer to the policy conditions for further details.

ft12 Guaranteed cash value of 80% of your single premium applies to policies issued at standard premium. Standard premium refers to the premium amount before any premium discount or additional premiums charged due to medical conditions.

ft13 Capital guarantee on Gro Saver Flex excludes any optional rider(s), on the condition all premiums are paid, and that the policy is held until maturity date with no policy alterations or claims made during the entire policy term.
