Prudential Launches New Insurance Plans for Personal Accident and Savings

  • PRUpersonal accident provides 24-hour worldwide coverage and up to three times payout for accidents
  • PRUsave max 10 is an endowment plan which provides a lump sum payout after 10 years

Singapore, 13 April 2016 - Prudential Assurance Company Singapore (Pte) Limited (Prudential Singapore) has launched two new insurance plans – a personal accident plan which offers up to three times payout for accidents occurring under certain circumstances, and an endowment plan which helps customers fund their 10 year savings goal.

PRUpersonal accident offers affordable premiums with 24-hour worldwide coverage for policyholders. The plan covers accidents, food poisoning, animal and insect bites including dengue fever and Zika virus.

Policyholders will receive three times the payout amount for public transport accidents, and double the payout amount for private transport and pedestrian accidents, building fires and accidents during school-time.

The plan also offers coverage for injuries sustained during National Service, reservist and certain adventurous activities like scuba diving.

In addition, PRUpersonal accident reimburses treatment bills including those from Traditional Chinese Medicine dispensaries. Coverage increases by up to 25% in the first five years if no claims are made during the period.

Policyholders can also enhance their coverage to receive additional recovery assistance such as family support funds, payouts for fractures and medical evacuation.

Annual premiums for PRUpersonal accident start from as low as $175 for $100K coverage for Accidental Death and Dismemberment.

No medical underwriting is required for PRUpersonal accident plan.

PRUsave max 10 is a 10-year endowment plan designed to provide a lump sum payout at maturity. Policyholders are able to pay their premiums in five years, after which a feature known as the Automatic Premium Benefit will fund the remaining five years’ of premiums.

The plan also offers coverage in the event of death, and policyholders may also enhance the coverage with supplementary benefits to waive premiums when critical illnesses or the unforeseen happens.

Application for PRUsave max 10 is fuss-free as no medical underwriting is required.

Prudential Singapore Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Angela Hunter said: “We are delighted to roll out two new products to help our customers meet their diverse needs. PRUpersonal accident plan offers one of the most comprehensive and affordable accident plans in town, while PRUsave max 10, will help them to be more disciplined in saving up for milestone events in their life.
