Plan Features

Plan Features

Multiple potential returns to accelerate wealth building
The Plan is a participating insurance plan that offers you potential capital growth. Its account value consists of 3 components: guaranteed cash value, non-guaranteed terminal dividend (if any)1 and total amount of terminal dividend management account (if any)2.

Guaranteed cash value grows over the policy years helping you accumulate wealth.

Terminal dividend is a one-off non-guaranteed dividend, which is payable from the 5th policy anniversary upon certain events.

Total amount of terminal dividend management account is equivalent to locked-in terminal dividend and interest3 (if any) less withdrawal amount (if any).

 

Flexible access to your wealth for matching your needs
To realize your financial goals, you can partially withdraw the guaranteed cash value and non-guaranteed terminal dividend (if any)1 through reducing the basic amount4, while the account value will be reduced accordingly while the total amount of terminal dividend management account (if any) will remain unchanged.

Alternatively, you can apply for policy loan to loan out part of the guaranteed cash value when needed, while keeping the policy in force. Interest on policy loan which is not guaranteed will be charged at a rate determined by China Life (Overseas) from time to time.

 

Terminal dividend management option to help you lock in gains
To facilitate your financial need, you can choose to exercise terminal dividend management option2 within 30 days starting from every policy anniversary (including the date of policy anniversary) to lock in gains from part of your terminal dividend (if any) starting from the 15th policy anniversary and every policy anniversary thereafter so as to respond to market fluctuation. The terminal dividend which is applied to lock in will be transferred to the terminal dividend management account and will become locked-in terminal dividend. The locked-in terminal dividend will then be guaranteed and will accumulate with interest3 at non-guaranteed rate. China Life (Overseas) reserves the right to revise the rate from time to time.

 

Unlimited change of insured to pass on wealth across generations
China Life (Overseas) understand you wish to provide your loved ones with a secure financial future. This is why the Plan features the "change of insured option"5, allowing you to change the insured on or after the 1st policy anniversary for unlimited times while the insured is alive. The benefit term of the policy will be extended to age 138 of the new insured upon each change, giving your wealth more time to grow and pass on through generations.

The new insured must have insurable interest with the policyholder. The new insured must be aged between 15 days and 80 years old and must not be older than the attained age of the current insured, whichever is lower. The new insured is also subject to the applicable terms and conditions determined by China Life (Overseas) from time to time.

 

Contingent insured to sustain insurance coverage
You can appoint and prioritize a maximum of 2 contingent insureds6 at a time while the insured is alive and the policy is in force. In case the insured unfortunately passes away, China Life (Overseas) will arrange the contingent insured who is first in line to be the new insured according to relevant administrative procedures and orders for allowing the policy to continuously provide protection to you and your family.

The contingent insured must have insurable interest with the policyholder. The contingent insured at the time of application must be aged between 15 days and 80 years old and must not be older than the attained age of the current insured, whichever is lower. The contingent insured is also subject to the applicable terms and conditions determined by China Life (Overseas) from time to time

 

Life protection provides peace of mind to your loved ones
Death benefit
In case the insured passes away when the policy is in force and no contingent insured is assigned, China Life (Overseas) will pay the beneficiary a death benefit which is equal to the higher of:

1) 105% of the accumulated premium due and paid; or
2) sum of guaranteed cash value and non-guaranteed terminal dividend (if any) at the date of death of the insured;
plus the total amount of terminal dividend management account (if any), less all indebtedness (if any). The prepaid premium balance will also be fully refunded.

The policy will be terminated after the death benefit has been paid by China Life (Overseas).

 

Death benefit settlement option
While the insured is alive, you can choose how the death benefit is to be paid to safeguard your family's financial future. You can choose to settle the benefits in a lump sum or by instalments with a fixed amount annually over a fixed payment term of 10, 20 or 30 years.

For the instalment option, the remaining balance of death benefit will be deposited in the policy to accumulate interest until the end of the payment term. The interest will be calculated on an annual basis and it is non-guaranteed which will be determined by China Life (Overseas) from time to time. The accumulated interest3 (if any) will be paid together with the last instalment of death benefit. If the beneficiary dies during the settlement period of the death benefit, China Life (Overseas) will pay the remaining balance of the death benefit with interest (if any) in a lump sum payment to the estate of the deceased beneficiary.

If the death benefit at the date of the insured's death is less than USD50,000 (for USD policy) or HKD400,000 (for HKD policy). or the policyholder does not specify any settlement option, China Life (Overseas) will pay out the benefit amount to the beneficiary in a lump sum.

 

Simplified underwriting
To enable you to achieve your goals with ease, application of the Plan is easy. Simplified underwriting procedures are available and no medical examination is required.

Remarks:

1  Terminal dividend is a one-off non-guaranteed dividend. It is not perpetually attached to the policy. The amount of terminal dividend as affected by different factors will be subject to adjustment when it is declared. Terminal dividend may become zero in some circumstances. For more information, please refer to clause 1 and clause 2 under "Policy Information" and "Non-guaranteed benefit" risk. Starting from the 5th policy anniversary, terminal dividend shall be paid upon the occurrence of the earliest of the following conditions:
  1. when the death benefit is paid (only applicable if the sum of guaranteed cash value and the terminal dividend of the Plan at the date of death of the insured is higher than 105% of the accumulated premium due and paid of the Plan); or
  2. when the policy is surrendered; o
  3. when the policy reaches the policy maturity date.
2  The minimum percentage for each locked-in terminal dividend under the terminal dividend management option is 10% and the aggregate percentage limit for locked-in terminal dividend is 50%. The option will only be exercised provided that the application completely fulfills the application requirement and is confirmed by China Life (Overseas). The aggregate percentage limit is subject to change by the Company from time to time and this option can only be exercised once every policy anniversary. The Company will only process this option once for each written request. Should this option be exercised again afterwards, written request must be resubmitted. No application will be accepted if there is any indebtedness (if any) during application. The amount of locked-in terminal dividend is guaranteed after exercising this option successfully. Once the application is approved by China Life (Overseas), the terminal dividend which is applied to lock in will be transferred to the terminal dividend management account and will become locked-in terminal dividend as soon as practicable, which will accumulate with interest at a non-guaranteed rate. China Life (Overseas) reserves the right to revise the interest rate from time to time. There may be a delay when exercising terminal dividend management option at the time of market volatility. The actual amount of the locked-in terminal dividend will only be determined after the application has been successfully processed by China Life (Overseas). Upon the completion of transferring the terminal dividend to the terminal dividend management account by China Life (Overseas) as per application, the terminal dividend (if any) of the relevant policy year will be adjusted accordingly. The terminal dividend (if any) of subsequent policy years will be adjusted accordingly after exercising terminal dividend management option with adjustment percentage at the sole discretion of China Life (Overseas). Locked-in terminal dividend will not be allowed to be reset or reversed to terminal dividend. For details of the terminal dividend management option, please refer to the policy provision.
3  The interest is not guaranteed. The actual benefits and/or returns may be lower or higher than estimates. China Life (Overseas) reserves the right to revise the interest from time to time.
4  "Basic amount" means the amount shown on the policy information page or endorsement as the "basic amount". The "basic amount" is used to calculate the premium and relevant values of the policy, but is not applicable to the calculation of the death benefit. If the basic amount has been amended while the policy is in force, premium and relevant values of the policy will be adjusted accordingly.
5  Both current insured and new insured should be alive during the application for change of insured, which is subject to the relevant administrative procedures of China Life (Overseas). The policy's basic amount, cash value, policy date, policy year, premium expiry date, accumulated premium due and paid, death benefit, terminal dividend management option, total amount of terminal dividend management account (if any) and indebtedness (if any) will remain unchanged after the change of insured.

For details, please refer to the policy provisions issued by China Life (Overseas). If the policy is lapsed or surrendered early, the cash value of the policy received by you may be considerably less than the total amount of the premium paid.

Policy Information:
1.  Dividend philosophy
Dividend philosophy - Policyholders of participating insurance plans can enjoy the potential surplus arising from the long term operation of the participating fund via a form of non-guaranteed dividend in addition to the guaranteed benefits. Your premiums will usually be allocated into a relevant participating fund and will be invested in a variety of asset classes according to our investment strategy. We will manage the relevant participating fund in a prudent manner and aim to ensure a fair distribution of surplus and risks between policyholders and shareholders, and among different groups of policyholders.
As dividends are mainly affected by the overall performance of the participating business, in order to alleviate the volatility of achieved gains and losses and the future uncertainties, in particular, future investment returns, we may take moderate smoothing measures to achieve relatively more stable dividends and strive to meet policyholders' reasonable expectation. We will maintain a fair distribution method or sharing ratio, and appropriate grouping to ensure policyholders are treated fairly, and to ensure policyholders' benefit expectation and rights are protected.
The current dividend projection is not guaranteed. We will review and declare the dividend at least once a year. When determining the dividend, we will consider the overall performance of all relevant policies on factors including but not limited to past experience as well as future prospect of investment returns, claims and surrenders:
  • Investment return - including the interest income, dividend income, investment outlook and changes to asset values.
  • Claims - including the costs of providing death benefit as well as other benefits under the product(s).
  • Surrenders - including policy termination, partial surrenders and the corresponding experience and impact.


If there are any changes in the actual dividends against the illustration or to the projected future dividends, such changes will be reflected in the policy anniversary statement.

The declaration of actual dividends is recommended by the Appointed Actuary and is subject to the approval of the Board (including one or more Independent Non-Executive Director(s)).

For products that are associated with an element of non-guaranteed accumulation interest rate, the Company will consider past investment experience as well as future expected return and other related factors when determining this non-guaranteed interest rate. If there are changes from market, expectation or policyholder behavior, the Company may apply reasonable adjustments to the non-guaranteed interest rate.

2. 
Investment strategy
Our investment philosophy aims at containing volatility and providing long term stable return. Meanwhile, in order to control and diversify risks, maintain adequate liquidity, and achieve higher potential returns for policyholders under an acceptable risk appetite, we will invest in a wide range of asset classes with consideration of the status of assets and liabilities. The target asset mix may also differ between different participating products. We will actively manage the investment portfolio and adjust the asset mix in response to the external market conditions.

Currently, our investments include bonds and other fixed income assets, such as government and corporate bonds and other fixed income instruments, to support the guaranteed liability payment. To enhance the potential performance of the investment portfolio, the Company will invest in equity-type assets and other investment instruments such as private funds, mutual funds and direct/indirect investment in properties or commercial institutions. Subject to our investment policy, we may also utilize derivatives to manage risks and enhance returns, or use security lending to improve returns. The investment portfolio will be diversified across different geographic regions and/or industries.

China Life (Overseas)'s current investment strategy on this participating plan is as follow:
Asset type Target asset mix (%)
Bonds and other fixed income instruments 30% to 90%
Equity-type investment and other investments 10% to 70%

Please refer to China Life (Overseas)’s website for dividend history, dividend philosophy, investment strategy, as well as the fulfillment ratio of China Life (Overseas).

 

3. 
Non-payment of premium/ automatic premium loan
You should pay premium(s) on time according to the selected premium payment term. If the due premium remains unpaid upon the expiry of the grace period, an automatic premium loan will be taken out against the policy to settle the unpaid premium automatically. All policy loans are interest-bearing and calculated at a rate (as stated on China Life (Overseas)’s website) to be declared by China Life (Overseas) from time to time. Interest accrued shall become a part of the indebtedness. When the loan balance is equal to or exceeds the guaranteed cash value of the basic plan of the policy, the policy will lapse and you will lose the related insurance coverage and suffer a financial loss. Under these circumstances, the surrender value of the policy will be deducted to repay the outstanding loan balance (including interest), and the remaining value will be refunded to you.

 

4. 
Payout arrangement at maturity
The Plan's maturity benefit will be payable after the policy maturity date and receipt of all necessary documents by China Life (Overseas). The actual processing time required will depend on the payment collection method you selected. For details about the collection of maturity benefit, please refer to China Life (Overseas)’s website or call China Life (Overseas)'s customer service hotline at {852) 3999 5519.

 

5.

What are the key product risks?

Credit risk
The Plan is a life insurance product issued by China Life (Overseas). Any premium paid will become part of the assets of China Life (Overseas) and the financial strength will affect the ability to meet China Life (Overseas)'s contractual obligations to you under the policy. Therefore, you are subject to China Life (Overseas)'s credit risk.

Early surrender risk
The savings component of the Plan is subject to risks and possible losses. Should you surrender the policy early, you may receive an amount considerably less than the total amount of premiums paid.

Exchange rate and currency risks
Any policy with foreign currencies involves risks, such as potential changes in political or economic conditions that may substantially affect the price or liquidity of a currency. The fluctuations in exchange rates may also cause financial losses to you during currency conversions. You should take exchange rate risk into consideration when deciding the policy currency you should take.

The policy currency of the Plan offers HKD and USD. Currency exchange rate can go up and down. If the policy currency is USD but calculated in HKD, the calculation is subject to the exchange rate. There is a risk that you could lose a substantial portion of total value of the policy or benefit if the policy currency depreciates substantially against your local currency. China Life (Overseas) will base on the prevailing market-based exchange rate of that respective currency to the policy currency and/or from the relevant sources at the time of processing such conversion, which will be subject to change from time to time. Such exchange rate may be different from the exchange rate offered by the banks.

Inflation risk
The cost of living in the future may be higher than expected due to the effects of inflation. Therefore, your current planned benefits and/or returns may be insufficient to meet your future needs even if China Life (Overseas) fulfills all of the contractual terms and obligations.

Liquidity and withdrawal risk
You are obliged to hold the policy and pay the premium(s) for the designated period of time. If you surrender the policy prior to the policy maturity date, you may suffer a financial loss. In case you make partial withdrawals from the policy, your account value, death benefit and other policy benefits will be affected, and you may need to pay the relevant handling fee or charges (if any).

Non-guaranteed benefit
The Plan consists of non-guaranteed benefits and/or returns. The actual amounts of benefits and/or returns in the future may be different from the benefits and/or returns which project on the product materials. The product materials are for illustrative purposes only.

Policy termination
The policy will be terminated if (a) the policy has lapsed or is surrendered; or (b) China Life (Overseas) has paid the maturity benefit; or (c) China Life (Overseas) has paid the death benefit in full; or (d) the due premium has not been paid within 31 days after the premium due date, and the policy has no remaining guaranteed cash value; or (e) the indebtedness of the policy is equal to or exceeds the guaranteed cash value of the policy.

Effective from 1 January 2018, all policyholders are required to pay a levy on each premium payment made for both new and in-force policies to the Insurance Authority (the "IA"). For premium levy details, please visit China Life (Overseas)’s website or call China Life (Overseas)'s customer service hotline at 3999 5519, or visit IA's website.
