Crisis Waiver III

Concentrate on Recovery Without Worrying About Premiums

Early Stage Crisis Waiver and Crisis Waiver III

Critical illness can strike anyone at anytime. When that happens, your utmost concern will be to focus on your recovery without worrying about your premium payments and continue to stay protected.

Early Stage Crisis Waiver1 is designed to waive your premiums of the covered benefits upon the diagnosis of Early Stage or Intermediate Stage Medical Conditions for up to 10 years2.

With Crisis Waiver III, you do not need to worry about making premium payments for the covered benefits on your policy if you are diagnosed with Critical Illness.


Benefits of Early Stage Crisis Waiver

  • Upon the diagnosis of an Early Stage Medical Condition, future premiums will be waived3 for 5 years4.
  • You may claim the benefits for Early Stage Medical Conditions twice during the term of the policy. The second claim5 will waive the premium for another 5 years4. This is provided the second claim is not for the same Medical Condition as the first claim, and it does not fall within the same category of the first Early Stage Medical Condition.
  • You can claim for 10 years4 waiver of premiums upon the diagnosis of Intermediate Stage Medical Conditions. However, if there was a successful claim under Early Stage Medical Conditions, the Intermediate Stage Medical Conditions Benefit5 only waives 5 years4 of future premiums.

Benefits of Crisis Waiver III

  • Your remaining premium payments6 for the covered benefits are waived upon diagnosis of any one of the 35 Critical Illnesses as listed in the table.

Buying a life insurance policy is a long-term commitment. An early termination of the policy usually involves high costs and the surrender value payable (if any) may be less than the total premiums paid. Buying health insurance products that are not suitable for you may impact your ability to finance your future healthcare needs. Premiums for some of the supplementary benefits are not guaranteed and may be adjusted based on future claims experience. You are recommended to seek advice from a qualified Prudential Financial Consultant for a financial analysis before purchasing a policy suitable to meet your needs.
