Legacy for Your Loved Ones
It’s good to leave a legacy for your loved ones after you have passed on to reduce the financial burden of your next-of-kin or to cover the costs of performing funeral bereavement on your behalf. Here, we provide you Death and Accidental Death Benefit during unexpected times.
Flexible Payment Term
You have an option to pay contributions for only 10 years and be covered until you are 80 years old. Depending on your needs, you may also choose to pay until the end of the coverage term with more affordable contributions.
It is truly hassle-free as you do not need to attend any medical check-up or answer long-winded health questionnaires.
When your certificate matures at the age of 80, a Maturity Benefit will be payable for you to spend through your golden years.
Funeral Benefit (Khairat Kematian)
Funeral expenses can be costly and it often takes time to receive a full claim payment from your insurance or Takaful plans. Living up to the name of Takaful, we provide assistance by pre-paying 10% of the Death Benefit upon receiving just the burial certificate.
We can make arrangements to perform religious obligation or charity on your behalf when you have passed on, where an amount will be deducted from the Takaful benefit payable under your certificate and paid to the service provider appointed by us.
Note: The product features stated above are not exhaustive. Please refer to the brochure or Takaful certificate for more details.
