By setting aside $6,75313 annually (approximately $563 per month) till age 57, he can look forward to potentially receive his Monthly Income of $1,06014 which includes a guaranteed portion of his Monthly Income of $400 which grows at 2%3 per annum. Here’s how PRUgolden income may help Mr. Lee realise his retirement planning goals.

Footnotes:

1 Monthly Income comprises a guaranteed portion and a non-guaranteed portion. The Monthly Income is paid to you every month throughout the Monthly Income Period commencing on the Policy Anniversary immediately before the life assured attains his selected retirement age of 55 or 62 and ending with the last Monthly Income instalment paid on the maturity date.
2 PRUgolden income is capital guaranteed if it is held till maturity and no alteration is made to the plan.
3 The guaranteed portion of the Monthly Income will increase annually at a simple interest of 2% starting from the second year of Monthly Income Period. Based on simple interest calculation, the yearly increment will be the same amount calculated at 2% of Initial Guaranteed Monthly Income.
4 If the life assured dies during the Accumulation Period, we will pay the higher of:
  • 105% of the total premiums paid at the time of death (excluding premiums paid for supplementary benefits, if any); or
  • 101% of the surrender value at the time of death,

less any outstanding amounts owing to us.

If the client had reduced his premium previously, the total premiums paid will be calculated as if the revised reduced premium had been paid from the start of the policy.

If the life assured dies during the Monthly Income Period, we will pay the higher of:

  • 101% of the surrender value at the time of death; or
  • the guaranteed portion of the remaining Monthly Income instalments at the time of death (excluding the non-guaranteed portion of the remaining Monthly Income instalments),

plus any accumulated non-guaranteed Monthly Income.

We will deduct any:

  • amounts owing to us;
  • overpaid guaranteed and non-guaranteed Monthly Income due to the late notification of death; and
  • overpaid Disability Monthly Income due to the late notification of death.
5 We will pay the Family Income Benefit upon the death of the life assured during the Monthly Income Period. We will pay a monthly payment equal to the Initial Guaranteed Monthly Income for 12 months or the remaining months to policy maturity, whichever is shorter.
6 An “Accident” is an unforeseen and involuntary event, which directly causes death or injury by violent, external and visible means, and is independent of any other cause (such as illness or disease of the life assured).
7 “Totally and Permanently Disabled” is when the life assured is totally and irrecoverably disabled as a result of which the life assured:
  • cannot engage in any occupation, business or activity which pays an income; or
  • suffers total and irrecoverable loss of use of:
  • both eyes;
  • any two limbs excluding hands and feet; or
  • one eye and any one limb excluding hands and feet.
8 If the life assured becomes Totally and Permanently Disabled because of an Accident before age 65, we pay this Disability Monthly Income until the maturity of the policy or upon the death of the life assured, whichever is earlier. The amount of the Disability Monthly Income will remain the same throughout the payment period. If the life assured stops being Totally and Permanently Disabled, we stop the Disability Monthly Income payments.
9 Initial Guaranteed Monthly Income is the guaranteed portion of the Monthly Income amount at the Cover Start Date of your policy and which is shown on your Certificate of Life Assurance.
10 Medical check-ups or answering questions about your health may be required for supplementary benefits. Other riders for this plan are available as well.
11 Upon diagnosis of Early or Intermediate Stage Medical Conditions, the future premiums of the covered benefits will be waived for 5 years or 10 years respectively, or the remaining premium payment term, whichever is shorter. The maximum premium waiver period is 10 years, after which the benefit terminates and premium payment for the covered benefits resumes.
12 Future premiums of the covered benefits are waived up to age 85 or until the end of the premium payment term, whichever is earlier.
13 Annual premium quoted (rounded to the nearest dollar) is based on a non-smoking male, age 40 next birthday (retirement age at 62 and Monthly Income Period of 20 years) with an Initial Guaranteed Monthly Income of $400.
14 Projected first year’s Monthly Income comprises of $400 guaranteed Monthly Income and $660 non-guaranteed Monthly Income. The illustrated non-guaranteed Monthly Income is projected assuming a projected investment return of 4.75% p.a. As non-guaranteed Monthly Income is not guaranteed, the actual benefits payable will vary according to the future performance of the participating fund.
