China Life Insurance Singapore Launches China Life SaveReturns (SGD) Endowment Plan with Security of Guaranteed Returns to Help Customers Save More

Singapore, 1 October 2015 – China Life Insurance (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. ("China Life Insurance Singapore") has launched China Life SaveReturns (SGD) endowment plan to help customers grow their savings by offering guaranteed yearly coupons1 and return of yearly premium2 during the plan duration of 6 years. In a Singapore Business Review article (Oct 2014) "Money no enough: Nearly half of Singaporeans are subsisting from paycheck to paycheck", it is reported that 30% of Singaporean households save less than 10% of their incomes, thereby leaving them unable to cope with unexpected financial expenses due to inadequate savings.

Ms Maria Ching, Chief Executive of China Life Insurance Singapore commented,"We hope to encourage more Singaporeans to save more and have designed China Life SaveReturns (SGD) endowment plan for this purpose. The plan provides 2 types of payouts – Guaranteed Yearly Coupons and Return of Yearly Premium to our customers, while they save with us. They also have the choice to either accumulate their payouts with us to earn potentially higher returns or withdraw their payouts for cash liquidity, which will help meet their savings needs for peace of mind. What's more, we are pleased to offer customers shopping vouchers worth up to 6% of their first year premium as our launch offer if they sign up for the plan before 31 December 2015."

With this plan, customers will get back 100 per cent of their paid premiums by the end of 6 years after paying their 3-year premiums. Customers will also be protected against death3, and the minimum annual premium amount for this plan is SGD3,000.

1. Yearly coupons equivalent to a percentage of one year's premium will be paid out at the end of each policy year starting from policy year 1 to policy year 5. We will deduct any amounts owing to us before paying the guaranteed yearly coupon.

2. Return of Yearly Premium is payable at the end of policy year 4 and policy year 5. We will deduct any amounts owing to us before paying the Return of Yearly Premium.

3. In the event of death of the life insured, we will pay the higher of 101% of (total premiums due and paid less yearly premiums returned by us) or cash value, plus accumulated payouts (if any) and interest on the accumulated payouts (if any), less amounts owing to us (if any).
