Singapore, July 19, 2012 - Prudential Assurance Company Singapore (Pte) Limited (“Prudential Singapore”), one of Singapore’s leading life insurers and market leader in critical illness protection, launches PRUCrisis Cover Vantage, the company’s first critical illness product specially designed for affluent individuals. With a high sum assured of half a million dollars to start with, this new insurance plan adds to the PRUVantage Portfolio suite of wealth management products with a maximum payout of up to $3.6 million upon diagnosis of Critical Illness, the highest level of coverage in the market.

Individuals who have worked hard to achieve the success they have today should be able to enjoy the assurance of being able to recuperate with first class medical treatments and highest standard of care if critical illness strikes. That is why Prudential Singapore developed the PRUCrisis Cover Vantage with the assurance of higher coverage right from the onset of critical illness. This is the only plan of its kind in Singapore that offers a payout of up to $500,000 for the diagnosis of an Early Stage Medical Condition and up to $250,000 for selected diabetic complications.

“Prudential is a market leader in critical illness protection and we are proud to launch a first of its kind protection for our customers, especially during a time where medical costs are escalating. PRUCrisis Cover Vantage is an extension of the PRUVantage Portfolio suite of wealth management products catered specifically to address the special needs of affluent and successful individuals. Besides wealth preservation, it is equally important that affluent individuals are assured of access to first class medical treatments in the event of an unexpected illness”, said Mr. Tomas Urbanec, Executive VP and Chief Marketing & Partnerships Distribution Officer of Prudential Singapore.

In the event of an accident or mishap, the policy has an Accidental Death benefit of 100% sum assured coverage or $1 million, whichever is the lower, to give the victim’s family added assurance that they will be taken care of. In the event of death, the payout is 10% of the sum assured or $100,000, whichever is lower.

“As individuals accumulate more wealth, they should safeguard against the loss of their assets from hefty medical bills or death so that they can continue to provide for the needs of their families without compromising on the lifestyle that their loved ones are used to”, Mr Urbanec added.

PRUCrisis Cover Vantage can be bought as a standalone plan or added to an existing PRUTerm Vantage plan for protection of Critical Illness till 85 years, ensuring comprehensive coverage, and greater peace of mind.
