Great 110 Legacy Review
- Reasonably entry level at basic sum assured from RM100,000.
- Increased protection with 2x payout for death and disability, and 4-6x for accidental death.
- Guaranteed premium rates maintained throughout (level costs).
- Guaranteed 110% premium returns (or basic sum assured if higher).
- Being an endowment, costs per RM of protection to premium are higher compared to non-endowment life policies.
- No option for Critical Illnesses coverage. If you need CI coverage, you need to get CI coverage separately.
- Survival benefits only given out in last 10 years of policy (i.e. age 70 until maturity at age 80).
- Coverage only until age 80 (although you would have gotten back the full maturity benefit). However, may impact planning if you were counting on 2x death benefit payout for estate planning purposes.
Overall: The plan should not be looked purely as an endowment for returns but as a life protection product with guaranteed returns components. It can fulfill a need to cover for estate/legacy planning needs for your family, children education planning, debt cancellation, and charitable giving especially if you’re looking at guaranteed returns.
