Legend Rich Insurance Plan

A flexible savings plan can help accumulate wealth for a prosperous future for you and your family.
Underwritten by China Life Insurance (Overseas) Company Limited (“China Life (Overseas)”), Legend Rich Insurance Plan (the “Plan”) provides potential long-term capital growth with guaranteed cash value, non-guaranteed terminal dividend and the total amount of terminal dividend management account (if any). You can access your wealth flexibly to achieve an ideal life for yourself and your family. You can also pass on your wealth to the next generations, building a solid financial foundation for your loved ones.

 

Features of the Plan

Features of the Plan

Multiple potential returns to accelerate wealth building
The Plan is a participating insurance plan that offers you potential capital growth. Its policy 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.

Total amount of terminal dividend management account is equivalent to locked-in terminal dividend and interest (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) through reducing the basic amount3, while the policy value will be reduced accordingly.

Alternatively, you can apply for policy loan to withdraw part of the guaranteed cash value when needed, while keeping the policy in force. Interest on policy loan 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 interest at a 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”4, allowing you to change the insured on or after the 1st policy anniversary for unlimited times while the insured is alive. The benefit term 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 after birth and 80 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 designate a maximum of 2 contingent insureds5 at a time while the insured is alive and the policy is in force. In case the insured passes away, China Life (Overseas) will arrange the contingent insured who is first in line to be the new insured according to the prevailing administrative rules 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 must be aged between 15 days after birth and 80 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 of the Plan; or
2) sum of guaranteed cash value and terminal dividend (if any) of the Plan 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 policy will be terminated after China Life (Overseas) pay the death benefit.

 

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 annual instalments with a fixed amount 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 interest 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.

The figures in the above case are rounded to the nearest whole number and for illustrative purpose only. All premiums shown do not include levy.

 

The above case is based on the following assumptions:

  • The surrender value is equal to the sum of the guaranteed cash value, terminal dividend and total amount of terminal dividend management account (if any).
  • The terminal dividend is non-guaranteed and is a one-time dividend. It is not perpetually attached to the policy and the amount of terminal dividend will be subject to adjustment when it is declared.
  • There is no policy loan or withdrawal made throughout the benefit term and all premiums are fully and duly paid.

 

Notes:

1  Terminal dividend is non-guaranteed and is a one-time dividend. It is not perpetually attached to the policy. The amount of the terminal dividend 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, the terminal dividend shall be paid upon the occurrence of the earliest of the following conditions:
(i) when the death benefit is paid (only applicable if the sum of guaranteed cash value and the terminal dividend of the Plan on the date of death of the insured is higher than 105% of the accumulated premium due and paid of the Plan);
(ii) when the policy is surrendered; or
(iii)  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 fulfills the application requirement and is confirmed by China Life (Overseas). There is no limitation on the number of exercising this option but this option can only be exercised once every policy anniversary. 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” as soon as practicable and will become locked-in terminal dividend, which will accumulate with interest at a non-guaranteed rate. China Life (Overseas) reserves the right to revise the 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 processed successfully 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 with adjustment percentage subject to sole discretion of China Life (Overseas). Locked-in terminal dividend will not be allowed to be reset or reversed to terminal dividend. For details, please refer to the policy provision.
3  “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, guaranteed cash value and terminal dividend (if any) will be adjusted accordingly.
4  Both current insured and new insured should be alive during the application for change of insured, which is subject to the prevailing administrative rules of China Life (Overseas). The basic amount, cash value, policy date, policy year, premium expiry date, accumulated premium due and paid, death benefit, terminal dividend, terminal dividend management option, total amount of terminal dividend management account (if any) and policy indebtedness (if any) will remain unchanged after the change of insured.
5  Application for contingent insured is subject to the prevailing administrative rules of China Life (Overseas). After the primary contingent insured became the new insured, the policy's basic amount, cash value, policy date, policy year, premium expiry date, accumulated premium due and paid, death benefit, terminal dividend, terminal dividend management option, total amount of terminal dividend management account (if any) and policy indebtedness (if any) will remain unchanged.
6  If the required renewal premium is paid by the policyholder within the grace period, the policy shall continue to be in force. For details, please refer to the policy provisions issued by China Life (Overseas). If the policy is lapsed or surrendered, the policy cash value received by the policyholder may be considerably less than the total amount of the premium paid.
7  You can withdraw the unused prepaid premium (including interest, if any) and China Life (Overseas) will charge 3% of the withdrawal amount. The minimum fee will be USD25 / HKD200. You can withdraw the unused prepaid premium once only. The interest rate of prepayment of premium is guaranteed.

Non-payment of premium / automatic premium loan
You should pay premium(s) on time according to the selected premium payment schedule.

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 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.

What are the key product risks?

Credit risk
This product is a life insurance policy 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)’ contractual obligations to you under the policy. Therefore this product is subject to China Life (Overseas)’ credit risk.

Early surrender risk
Should you surrender the policy early, you may receive an amount considerably less than the total amount of premiums paid, and thus resulting in a pecuniary loss.

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 consider the potential currency and exchange rate risks before deciding which 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 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 for the designated period of time. If you surrender the policy prior to the policy maturity date, you will suffer a financial loss. In case you make partial withdrawals from the policy, your policy value, death benefit and other policy values will be reduced, 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; (b) China Life (Overseas) has paid the policy maturity benefit; (c) China Life (Overseas) has paid the death benefit in full; (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 equals or exceeds the guaranteed cash value of the policy.
