Why do multiple claims for Early Critical Illness and Critical Illness matters?

Anyone that had contracted any form of Critical Illnesses would have known the importance of insurance coverage. It is no surprise that the same group of individuals would wish to get coverage for Critical Illness. But should you wait until you diagnosed with a critical illness before getting insurance coverage?

Here are some quick stats from the AIA Health Matters Survey 2016 published in The Straits Times as below:

Getting coverage after a Critical Illness is certainly not easy.

While relapse of cancer or getting other critical illness is heard of, getting insurance coverage is usually impossible or with heavy exclusion clauses.

Why makes Aviva MyWholeLifePlan II unique?

The base plan of MyWholeLifePlan II

The base plan of Aviva MyWholeLifePlan II by itself is nothing special with up to 4 times coverage multiplier on the Sum Assured value. For the records, Manulife LifeReady offers coverage multiplier up to 5 times of the Sum Assured at a similarly competitive premium.

Hence, there is nothing to shout about if all you are looking for in a whole life plan is coverage for Death, Disability or Terminal Illness.

The available riders of MyWholeLifePlan II

Almost all whole life plans in the markets allow for additional riders to cover Critical Illness and Early Critical Illness. The riders will expire upon making a payout, and there is no further need to pay the insurance premium for the rider as well.

You then wonder how you are going to get insurance coverage under existing medical conditions.

Now, this is where Aviva MyWholeLifePlan II stands out among all the whole life insurance plans. As the name suggests, the MultiPay Critical Illness Cover II rider allows multiple claims on the chosen Sum Assured value.

How does the MultiPay Critical Illness Cover II rider work?

Here is how the MultiPay Critical Illness Cover II works when you take the rider with a S$50,000 Sum Assured:

  • 1st LayerEarly/ Intermediate Stage Critical Illness ( Allows claim for 2 times, each claim at 1x of Sum Assured)
  • 2nd Layer Critical Illness (Allows a total payout of up to 3x Sum Assured for a  total of S$150,000 less amount paid in the 1st Layer, minimally you get 1x of Sum Assured at S$50,000 if S$100,000 was paid out earlier).

At this stage of the claim, future premium for MultiPay Critical Illness Cover II is waived. There will be 2 years waiting period before further claims are allowed.

  • 3rd Layer – First time CI or Relapse CI (Allows claim for 1x of Sum Assured  at S$50,000)
    • First time CI: Major Cancer, Heart Attack or Stroke
    • Relapse CI: Re-diagnosed Major Cancer, Recurrent Heart Attack or Recurrent Stroke

There will be another 2 years waiting period before further claims are allowed.

  • 4th Layer – First time CI or Relapse CI (Allows claim for 1x of Sum Assured  at S$50,000)
    • First time CI: Major Cancer, Heart Attack or Stroke
    • Relapse CI: Re-diagnosed Major Cancer, Recurrent Heart Attack or Recurrent Stroke

In short, the rider can pay up to 5 times the Sum Assured of your chosen amount. Don’t be shy if you are confused, it took us a while to fully understand how it works.

How can you get multiple Critical Illness coverages?

Via Term Insurance/ Multiple Critical Illness plans

As a stand-alone policy or rider in a term insurance plan, you can look into Aviva My MultiPay Critical Illness Plan, AIA Triple Critical Cover or Great Eastern Critical Care Advantage.

The overall premium will be lower compared to a whole life plan as the policy does not accumulate cash value. Similarly, a term or critical illness plan will terminate/ expire at the end of your chosen coverage term, even if there was no payout made.

It is a no-brainer that MyWholeLifePlan II should be the first on your consideration list if whole life plan was your intention.
