Prudential Life Assurance Products

1. Pru Dahari-Dumu

This is a lasting savings and protection plan. It combines the benefits of savings and life assurance and allows the insured to take a premium holiday after six months of paying premiums should the need arise. The policy helps you to achieve your goal and give you peace of mind that whatever happens, your investment will be secure.

2. Pru Select

This plan allows you to accumulate funds to help you achieve your goals whilst protecting you and your family against the worst that life can throw at you. The policy is designed to help you achieve those goals that are an absolute “must”, like your child’s education. It has guaranteed cash pay-outs to help your family get back on track and ensure your child’s education would not be compromised.

How the policy works.

  • You decide the total savings that you need and the number of years you want to save for.
  • You select how many cash pay-outs you want to receive. These cash pay-outs are paid during the last policy years.
  • Prudential calculates the regular amount to be saved – you can choose to pay monthly, or – to receive a discount – quarterly, semi-annually or annually.
  • Prudential carefully invests your savings to guarantee that you receive your target amount.
  • You also benefit from a share in the investment profits via bonuses, giving you additional returns on top of your target amount.
  • Depending on the cash pay-out plan you selected, during the final seven years of the policy you receive annual payments that increase each year.
  • At the end of the policy term, you receive the final lump sum plus bonuses.

Benefits

  • Guaranteed achievement of your savings target – with increasing annual payments in the last seven years of the policy if more than one cash pay-out plan is selected.
  • Annual investment bonuses to share the investment profits (made at the insurer’s discretion)
  • In case of death, Prudential will pay 100% of the insured amount to a beneficiary of your choice. We will then continue to pay your monthly payments and pay all the original benefits to your beneficiary on your behalf.
  • In case of accidental death, Prudential will pay 200% of the insured amount to your beneficiary. We will then continue to pay your monthly payments and pay all the original benefits to your beneficiary on your behalf.
  • If the cover is selected, on the diagnosis of a specified critical illness, Prudential will pay 50% of the insured amount, and then also continue to pay your remaining monthly payments and pay all the original benefits to you or your beneficiary when they become due.
  • If the cover is selected, should you become permanently disabled due to an accident or illness, Prudential will continue to pay your remaining monthly payments and pay all the original benefits to you or your beneficiary when they become due.
