You may choose to accumulate the guaranteed cash payments in the policy to earn interest5, receive them in cash or apply them towards future premium payments.

Annual dividends2,5 and terminal dividend2,5 (limited to policies without exercising the income option)

An annual dividend will be payable on the policy anniversary date. You may choose to accumulate the annual dividends in the policy to earn interest5, receive them in cash or apply them towards future premium reduction.

 

If the policy has been effective for ten years, the Plan will also bring you additional returns by providing a one-off terminal dividend upon the surrender of the policy, the maturity of the policy or the death of the insured. Both the annual dividends and terminal dividend are not guaranteed.

Terminal dividend lock-in option66 (limited to policies without exercising the income option)

The Plan offers terminal dividend lock-in option, allowing you to lock-in part of the terminal dividend and accumulate it as part of annual dividend for interest accumulations (“terminal dividend lock-in”), enabling you to raise the cash reserve and handle your financial needs in different life stages. On or after the 10th policy anniversary date, you may submit a written application to apply for terminal dividend lock-in according to your need. Each time you can lock-in a percentage of 10% of terminal dividend or above, and the total percentage of lock-in is capped at 60% of terminal dividend, while a three-year or above interval between each lock-in is required.

Protection period up to age 130 of the initial insured and change of insured option10

The Plan provides life protection up to age 130 of the initial insured. After the first policy anniversary date and during the lifetime of the insured, regardless of whether within the chosen income period, you may change the insured according to your plan; so you, your beloved and future generation can also be protected. The policy will continue to be effective up to age 130 of the initial insured, making it a meaningful gift for your future generation.

Nomination of contingent owner11 and contingent insured12

You can nominate a contingent owner once the policy becomes effective. Should the policyowner unfortunately pass away, the nominated contingent owner will become the new owner of the policy and can continue to exercise the rights under the policy without waiting for the completion of the probate.

 

Moreover, you can also nominate a contingent insured after the first policy anniversary date. Should the insured unfortunately pass away, the contingent insured will become the new insured, the Plan will continue to be effective until age 130 of the initial insured, helping you transfer your wealth to your next generation.

Savings and life insurance in one

The Plan provides savings returns as well as life insurance up to age 130 of the initial insured, offering comprehensive protection for you and your loved ones. In the unfortunate event of the death of the insured, provided that the income option has not been exercised, the designated beneficiary will receive the death benefit which is equivalent to the guaranteed cash value2 at the date of death or total premiums due and paid of the basic plan of the policy less all guaranteed cash payments paid to you (whether accumulated or withdrawn) at the date of death, whichever is higher; plus accumulated guaranteed cash payments and interest5 (if any), accumulated annual dividends and interest5 (if any) and terminal dividend (if any), less any indebtedness of the policy.

Extended grace period benefit15 (not available for premium prepayment option)

You may pay the premium due without interest by the end of the extended grace period and the policy will still remain effective.

No medical underwriting

No health declaration and medical underwriting are required if you apply for the basic plan only, making the application simple and hassle free.

Optional supplementary contracts16 (not available for premium prepayment option)

According to your personal needs, you may choose to enhance the protection by adding various supplementary contracts, such as medical, critical illness, accidental and premium waiver supplementary contracts. Supplementary contracts are still effective during the chosen income period. You can pay the premiums of supplementary contracts by using income payments.

About Accumulation Interest Rates & Investment Policy

1. The guaranteed cash payment will be calculated based on the latest guaranteed maturity benefit, and payable yearly when the income option is not exercised.

2. The income option can be exercised for one time only when the policy is effective and is subject to any prevailing applicable rules determined in the sole discretion of Tahoe Life from time to time. Upon receipt and approval of the application of exercising income option by Tahoe Life, the surrender benefit will be converted into an income benefit, under which an income payment will be paid to the policyowner on a yearly basis during the chosen income period. At the end of chosen income period, the policy will be terminated, the balance of income benefit (and death benefit) will reach zero. All benefits and protection will be ceased. The income payment shall be projected based on the income benefit and a non-guaranteed interest rate. Therefore, the income payment is non-guaranteed. The actual income payment received may be higher or lower than those illustrated. The balance of the income benefit after deducting the income payment(s), will be accumulated at such non-guaranteed interest rate. The policyowner may apply to Tahoe Life in writing in the form that is required by Tahoe Life to terminate the income option during the chosen income period in exchange for the balance of the income benefit. The policy will terminate after Tahoe Life pays such balance. For details of income option, please refer to the policy contract of the Plan. For the projected amount of annual income payment, please refer to the illustration. Upon the income option is exercised, maturity benefit, surrender benefit and guaranteed cash value are no longer applicable to the policy. Tahoe Life will no longer pay any annual dividends, terminal dividend or guaranteed cash payments.

3. Initial insured means the insured whose life is insured by the policy at the commencement of the policy.

4. The guaranteed maturity benefit is used to calculate premium, guaranteed cash value, guaranteed cash payments, annual dividends and terminal dividend. In case the guaranteed maturity benefit is reduced while the policy is effective, the premium and benefit amounts payable will be reduced accordingly. The guaranteed maturity benefit is not equal to the death benefit and will not be paid upon the death of the insured. For details of the death benefit, please refer to the policy contract of the Plan.

5. The Plan is a participating policy. Annual dividends and terminal dividend (the “non-guaranteed benefits”) are not guaranteed, subject to change and will be determined by Tahoe Life from time to time. For details of the non-guaranteed benefits, please refer to the below section on “Non-guaranteed benefits”. Annual dividends will only be payable when the policy is effective and there are no overdue premiums. The accumulation interest rates for annual dividends and guaranteed cash payments are not guaranteed, subject to change and will be determined by Tahoe Life from time to time. For details of the annual dividends and terminal dividend, please refer to the below section on “About Policy Dividends” or visit Tahoe Life’s website, https://www.tahoelife.com.hk/tl/doc/pd_en.pdf.

6. After lock-in of terminal dividend, the Company will correspondingly reduce the amount of any future terminal dividend at a rate prorated to the terminal dividend which have been locked-in. You may submit a written request by filing with Tahoe Life’s prescribed form to cancel your application in respect of the lock-in(s) of terminal dividend which has/have yet to take place. Once approved, your cancellation request is irrevocable. For details of the terminal dividend lock-in option, please refer to the policy contract.

7. Accumulation interest rate for the balance of the income benefit is not guaranteed, subject to change and will be determined by Tahoe Life from time to time.

8. The premium prepayment option is only applicable to policies with 6-year premium payment term and annual payment mode. The application of prepayment of renewal premium can only be valid when the renewal premium and levy on renewal premium are fully pre-paid (“Prepaid Amount”) at the time of policy application together with the filled application form and signed illustration of premium prepayment option. Prior to the renewal premium due, the Prepaid Amount will not form part of the paid premium. The Prepaid Amount will not form part of the guaranteed cash value, nor any benefit under the policy, and will not be attributed to the calculation of death benefit. The accumulation interest rates for the Prepaid Amount are not guaranteed, subject to change and will be determined by Tahoe Life from time to time. If the insured passes away before the end of the premium payment term, the balance of the Prepaid Amount shall be returned to the policyowner or his/her estate. Upon policy surrender or full withdrawal of the balance of the Prepaid Amount before the end of the premium payment term, the relevant balance of the Prepaid Amount shall be returned to the policyowner, and any interest on the balance of the Prepaid Amount of that policy year will be forfeited. Only full withdrawal of the balance of the Prepaid Amount will be accepted by Tahoe Life.
