Helping customers to plan prudently for a secure life
HONG KONG, Oct. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- As a life partner for its customers, AXA Hong Kong understands that an intimate life protection insurance plan is important for life. By taking up life protection, customers can ensure their future is protected no matter what, equivalent to the gift of a secure and happy life. AXA has therefore launched the 'LifeDelight Insurance Plan'. For customers with just 10 or 18 years of affordable premium payments, LifeDelight offers life protection up to age 138 plus potential growth on legacy throughout the life journey, paving the way to a brighter future for their loved ones and giving them greater peace of mind.
AXA Hong Kong launched the ‘LifeDelight Insurance Plan’, providing extra protection for customers and their families for a more secure future. There is a terminal dividend lock-in option, allowing customers to seize market opportunities and accumulate wealth.
Mr Kevin Chor, Chief Life and Market Development Officer, AXA Hong Kong and Macau, said, "An ageing population is becoming a fact in Hong Kong, where we are seeing rising longevity. The market has been lacking truly flexible life protection insurance plan. To address this need, AXA Hong Kong has launched the 'LifeDelight Insurance Plan', providing extra protection for customers and their families for a more secure future. There is even a terminal dividend lock-in option, allowing customers to seize market opportunities and accumulate wealth."
Protects customers and their loved ones against the unforeseen
LifeDelight can protect customers and their loved ones against the unforeseen, and includes 'Care 20 Extra Death Benefit'. If the death benefit becomes payable within the first 20 years of the policy, AXA Hong Kong will pay an additional 35% of the basic sum insured. That way, customers can be assured that their loved ones are being taken care of financially. Also, LifeDelight offers life protection up to age 138, reflecting the adage that "It's never too late to protect".
Wealth accumulation with guaranteed cash value and non-guaranteed terminal dividend
The affordable premium payments of LifeDelight are paid for only 10 years, and can boost potential returns of a terminal dividend, which is an aid to maximise the potential growth on legacy. In addition, LifeDelight carries a cash value, the guaranteed cash surrender value of which is payable upon policy maturity or policy surrender. When the customer's policy has been in force for 3 years, the customer may also benefit from a terminal dividend. Terminal dividend is determined at least annually commencing from the end of the third policy year.
Withdrawals from terminal dividend lock-in account for accessible cash
The customer can also exercise a terminal dividend lock-in option to capture and secure any market upside. Within 30 days from each policy anniversary starting from the 25th policy anniversary (if the premium payment term is 10 years) or the 30th policy anniversary (if the premium payment term is 18 years), the customer can apply to transfer a certain percentage (up to 60%) of the latest value of the terminal dividend, which is rolling over. Customers can withdraw part or all of the value of the terminal dividend lock-in account in a lump sum from the terminal dividend lock-in account, anytime, without surrendering the policy, to accommodate their financial needs at different stages of their life.
Guaranteed Insurability Option
While the LifeDelight policy is in effect, the eligible customers have an option to apply for a new life insurance policy as may be determined by AXA Hong Kong for the insured with no further evidence of health required within a specified period of time. The sum insured of the new policy can be up to 35% of the basic sum insured of the LifeDelight policy.
Death benefit settlement option
LifeDelight is a flexible life protection insurance plan. AXA Hong Kong can pay the death proceeds in a lump sum or by regular instalments according to the customer's own choice. The settlement term can be 10 / 20 / 30 years, and the mode of settlement can be annually or monthly. Diversified choices let customers make the most suitable choice when needed. Additionally, to meet their different and individual needs, customers can also combine LifeDelight with a wide range of optional supplements such as critical illness, medical, accident and disability protection.
