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. If you find that this plan is not suitable after purchasing it, you may terminate it within the free-look period, and obtain a refund of premiums paid. We may recover from you any expense incurred in underwriting this plan (subject to the respective products’ terms and conditions). For ILP, the refund amount is based on the market value of your selected funds and this could mean that you get back less than the original investment.
These policies are protected under the Policy Owners’ Protection Scheme which is administered by the Singapore Deposit Insurance Corporation (SDIC).

ft1 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.
ft2 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.
ft3 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.
ft4 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.
ft5 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.
ft6 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.
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 There is a minimum requirement on the amount allocated into each selected fund upon each premium payment. The annual management fee is not the same for all funds. Please refer to their respective Product Highlights Sheets for the annual management fees as well as other fees and charges.
ft14 A premium charge of 3.5% will be deducted from both the initial single premium and top ups (if any).
ft15 Withdrawal amount must be at least $500. After withdrawal, the policyholder needs to hold a minimum of $1,750 worth of units under each selected fund or $3,500 worth of units across all funds under the policy. These limits are not guaranteed, and are subject to revision by Income. Partial withdrawals have the effect of reducing the death benefit, accidental death benefit and sub-fund value of the policy.
ft16 Upon accidental death of the insured before the age of 75, WealthLink pays 105% of all net premium(s) paid or the policy value at the time of the claim, whichever is higher. This benefit will be paid only if death happens within 365 days of the accident. We will only pay for the Death Benefit or the Accidental Death Benefit and not both. The policy terminates thereafter. Net premium(s) means the initial single premium paid, and the total of all top-ups made, less all amounts cashed in.
ft17 Upon death of the insured during the policy term, the policy value at the time of the claim will be payable and the policy terminates thereafter. The policy value is the amount available when your units are multiplied by the bid price. We will only pay for the Death Benefit or the Accidental Death Benefit and not both.
ft18 If the insured becomes terminally ill or dies during the term of the policy, we will pay the sum assured. The policy will end when we make this payment.
ft19 We will renew your policy for the same policy term at its prevailing sum assured only if your policy has not ended as a result of a claim during its term and the insured is age 74 (last birthday) and below. However, if the original policy term is not a multiple of five years, or if the original policy term is a multiple of five years but the anniversary immediately after the insured’s 100th birthday falls within the next policy term, we will renew it for a shorter term that is a multiple of five years, as long as the minimum term is 10 years, such that the renewal term will neither go beyond the original policy term, nor the anniversary immediately after the insured’s 100th birthday. We will work out the renewal premium based on the policy’s renewal term, sum assured and the age of the insured at the time the policy is renewed.
ft20 This benefit limit is applicable under Plan 4. It is subject to the scale of compensation as shown in the Policy Contract. We pay this benefit if you become permanently disabled within 12 months from the date of accident.
ft21 This plan does not cover infectious disease diagnosed within 14 days from the policy start date as well as any infectious disease which has been announced as:
(a) an epidemic by the health authority in Singapore or the Government of the Republic of Singapore; or

ft29 If there is a claim made for an early stage cancer, we will only pay 100% of the sum assured upon diagnosis of an advanced stage cancer.
ft30 Advanced stage of major cancer benefit
The definitions for advanced stage cancers are found in the policy conditions. The insured must survive at least 30 days after the insured is diagnosed with a covered advanced stage of major cancer before we pay the advanced stage of major cancer benefit. We will not pay this benefit if the insured was diagnosed with the disease within 90 days from the cover start date. Once payment for advanced stage of major cancer benefit is made, the early stage of major cancer benefit, and the advanced stage of major cancer benefit will end.
ft31 Accidental fractures benefit
We will pay this benefit only if the surgery happens within 30 days of the accident. The benefit terminates once 20% of the sum assured has been claimed. Please refer to the policy contract for further details.
ft32 We will pay 15% of the sum assured upon the insured’s successful admission to an inpatient hospice facility. However, if the insured was referred to a home care or day care hospice facility, we will pay 5% of the sum assured. We will pay another 10% of the sum assured if the insured subsequently gets admitted to a hospice. The insured has to be diagnosed with terminal cancer by his attending registered medical practitioner and a referral for hospice care services has to be made by his attending registered medical practitioner.
