Product Analysis

 

What are the key strengths and weaknesses of these two Legacy Retirement products?

 

 

1 SG Logo INCOME

10 SG Logo ChinaTaiping

Wealth Solitaire

Infinite Harvest

Key Strengths

 Higher Total Payout at the older ages 

1. Higher Total Guaranteed + Non-Guaranteed Surrender Value at older ages, approximately after Policy Year 70-75 

2. Higher Total Guaranteed + Non-Guaranteed Death Benefit at the older ages, approximately after Policy Year 70-75. 

3. Higher Maturity Payout when the Life Insured attains age 100. 

Higher Guarantees  

1. Slightly higher Guaranteed Monthly Cash Benefit Component 

2. Higher Guaranteed Surrender Value.

  • Day 1 Surrender Value of 80%. This increases to be at least 100% of the Single Premium amount by Year 10, providing a Capital Guarantee by Year 10. 
  • Guaranteed Surrender Value continues to grow yearly at a rate of 0.25% p.a. after policy year 10, for as long as the policy in-force.  

3. Higher Guaranteed Death Benefit. The Guaranteed Death Benefit Component grows yearly. 

Higher Total Payout in the policy years before 70-75 on Surrenders and Death as Terminal Bonuses are higher than NTUC Income's Wealth Solitaire in the early years. 

 

Key Weaknesses

Does not provide Capital Guarantees as the Guaranteed Surrender Value remains at 80% of Single Premium throughouth the policy term. 

Guaranteed Death Benefit stays level and does not increase throughout the policy term. 

Total Non-Guaranteed components make up a large component of the Surrender, Death and Maturity Payout. This is mainly comprises of Terminal Bonuses and could be reduced at any time by the insurer.  Unlike Reversionary Bonuses, Terminal Bonuses do not vest regularly. 

Total Non-Guaranteed Components are lower in the later years after Policy Year 70-75 relative to NTUC Income's Wealth Solitaire. This means the total Surrender / Death Benefits are not as high. 

Who is this product ideal for

Customers who prefer a strong and stable local insurer brand name and are looking to hold the product for a long term in order to enjoy the high surrender or death benefits after policy years 70-75. 

Customers who prefer a product that can provide higher guarantees and guaranteed capital returns in the early years of the policy.

Here are some common questions
about Wealth Solitaire and Infinite Harvest

1. Can the Monthly Cash Benefit be accumulated with the company to accumulate interest?


The plan is designed to pay out the MCB. However, the policy owner may choose to accumulate the Monthly Cash Benefit with the respective insurers at a non-guaranteed interest rate. China Taiping's current non-guaranteed interest rate is 3.5% p.a. while NTUC Income's current non-guaranteed interest rate is 3.25% p.a..

 

2. Can the policy owner request to change the Monthly Cash Benefit from a paid-out option to accumulated option and vice versa after the policy is incepted?

 

Yes, the policy owner may request to change the paid-out option to accumulated option anytime during the payout period and vice versa.

 

3. Can the accumulated Monthly Cash Benefit be withdrawn at any time?

 

Yes. Partial or full withdrawal of the accumulated Monthly Cash Benefit is allowed at anytime during the policy term.

 

4. Does the policy owner need to provide proof of survivorship on the life insured to receive the Monthly Cash Benefit?

 

The insurer reserves the right from time-to-time to request for satisfactory proof that the life insured is alive before paying the Monthly Cash Benefit.

 

5. What happens if the insuerer is not notified immediately of the life insured’s death and continues to pay out the Monthly Cash Benefit?

 

Any Monthly Cash Benefit paid on or after the date of the life insured’s death will be deducted from the death benefit proceeds

 

6. Can I change the Life Insured?

 

No, once the policy is incepted, the Life Insured cannot be changed. 

 

7. What is the purpose of appointing different Policy Owners and is there a limit to the number of times the Policy Owner can be changed?

 

The Policy Owner will be the person receiving the Monthly Cash Benefits. No, there is no limit to the number of times the Policy Owner can be changed. 

 

8. I want to purchase this plan with the intention of passing on my legacy to my Grandchild. How can I do this? 

 

This can be done by setting up the policy with your Grandchild as the Life Insured and your son/daughter (your Grandchild's parent) as the Policy Owner. The policy can immediately be assigned to yourself upon inception. This transfers the ownership rights to you and will mean that the Monthly Cash Benefits will be received by yourself. This allows you to enjoy the Monthly Cash Benefits in your retirement. 

 

You can also be the payor of the policy, and this will be clearly stated in the policy documents. 

 

The policy can be assigned back to your son/daughter at any point over the policy term.
