Early Stage Disability

We understand that support is needed when simple things in life becomes a challenge.

Sometimes unexpected twists in life may affect your ability to perform some of the simplest tasks, such as walking, seeing clearly, sitting and rising from a chair, communicating, lifting and carrying and removing tablets from a pack.

Early Stage Disability is Singapore's first and only insurance policy that covers you against partial and temporary disablement, as a result of an illness or injury, based on your ability to carry out daily tasks affecting your quality of life. These tasks are Quality of Life Conditions (QLC) which can potentially have a major impact on your lifestyle - and probably your finances. Early Stage Disability starts to provide payout if one is unable to perform at least 2 of the 6 Quality of Life Conditions (QLC), which will affect your quality of life1.

This supplementary benefit provides comprehensive coverage with Partial or Full Payout2 on selected early disabilities. It also covers you for Total and Permanent Disability2 and disabilities as a result of selected hazardous activities under the Special Risk benefit2. Upon the first claim made under Partial Payout2, the future premiums will be waived so you can concentrate on recovery.

  1. If the life assured is more than 15 years old as at the date of his disability and, as a result of illness or injury, satisfies any 2 or 3 of the Quality of Life Conditions under the covered benefits. We will honour the claim provided that any 2 or 3 of the Quality of Life Conditions are certified to be existing conditions suffered by the life assured at least 90 days after the confirmed diagnosis of the illness or injury directly leading up to the development of the relevant Quality of Life Conditions.

    If the life assured is between 28 days and 15 years old at date of disability, we will pay if the life assured is disabled as a result of illness or injury and is confined to a home, Hospital or other institutions requiring constant care and medical attention for the relevant stipulated period required under the covered benefits. Therefore, the Quality of Life Conditions will not be used.
