MetLife Enjoy Whole Life Plan is a unique lifelong protection product. Key features include:
- High level of protection -- This plan offers high guaranteed life insurance coverage. Customers can enjoy life protection and a terminal illness benefit up to age 120.
- Greater control over legacy allocation -- Customers can allocate the life benefit to specified beneficiaries in their preferred way. With the flexible settlement options, they may also choose in advance to allocate the life benefit in a lump sum payment, or to customize a distribution schedule so beneficiaries receive a fixed or variable instalment at regular intervals. Distribution schedules may be as long as 30 years.
- High flexibility -- Customers can choose from two life benefit options at policy inception, so they can benefit from the one that best matches their financial commitments and needs.
- Preservation and growth of wealth -- This plan offers guaranteed cash value, annual dividends (non-guaranteed) and a terminal dividend (non-guaranteed) to grow the legacy. Customers may also cash out some of the accumulated cash value to fulfill other financial aspirations.
- Customized to individual's needs with savings top-up option -- Customers may choose to top up the savings by attaching MetLife Amass Savings Benefit to enjoy additional guaranteed cash value, annual dividends (non-guaranteed) plus a terminal dividend (non-guaranteed) to build on their amassed wealth.
Mr. Vincent Chan added, "At MetLife Hong Kong, we are committed to constantly delivering solutions that meet our customers' needs and provides them with greater value. Discerning what truly matters to these affluent and high-net-worth individuals forms the core of our product design and appeal. As our customers' trusted advisor, we fully understand that each of them has unique goals. Therefore, we have developed MetLife Amass Savings Benefit as a savings top-up option tailored for customers who have a greater focus on increasing their affluence by unleashing the growth potential of their wealth -- without increasing the sum assured or the premium for MetLife Enjoy Whole Life Plan. This innovative integrated approach enables customers to fulfill a range of other financial goals such as early retirement, all without sacrificing the life insurance coverage and legacy to be passed on to further generation."
