PRUlink heritage account Creates Wealth For Your Loved Ones While Giving You Peace Of Mind

(Singapore - 18 July 2011)

Prudential Assurance Company Singapore introduces PRUlink heritage account (PHA), a product that gives customers the opportunity to create wealth for their loved ones without having to worry about a lifetime of charges.

This Regular Premium Investment Linked Product serves as an effective investment vehicle which has the potential to deliver higher returns. On top of providing a non-guaranteed cash value, PRUlink heritage account covers you against Death, Terminal Illness and Total and Permanent Disability. It has the benefit of level assurance charges (non-guaranteed) that are paid for a limited period so that customers need not worry about increasing charges that may occur in later years.

With PHA the minimum sum assured of S$200,000 helps to establish a minimum amount of wealth for loved ones. Furthermore, the monthly assurance charges stop after 25 years so there is no worry of lifelong assurance charges that may be of concern in later years. On top of that, increasing allocation rates which can be as high as 107% from Year 10 helps to potentially create and accumulate more wealth for loved ones in subsequent years, particularly after the limited assurance charge period.

“We all want to ensure that we have a good reserve of wealth for our loved ones. Prudential Singapore has designed PRUlink heritage account with a minimum sum assured to help our customers have sufficient financial assurance for their family members. Not only does it offer peace of mind by giving adequate coverage, it also removes concerns about increasing charges that may occur in later years. With PRUlink heritage account, the assurance charges are limited but the reassurance is not,” said Tomas Urbanec, Chief Marketing Officer of Prudential of Singapore.

With PRUlink heritage account, you can also adjust your policy before the age of 55 by increasing or decreasing your premiums to suit your financial ability and changing needs too. Partial withdrawals can even be made on the PHA plan for additional liquidity.
