Etiqa Insurance Singapore Introduces Tiq CashSaver, A New Endowment Plan to Secure One’s Financial Future



The new Tiq CashSaver endowment plan offers comprehensive protection and flexibility, with a low minimum monthly savings amount to encourage the good habit of regular saving.

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach Newswire - 30 May 2024 - Etiqa Insurance Singapore, a leading life and general insurer announced the launch of Tiq CashSaver, a new capital-guaranteed endowment plan tailored to address the evolving financial needs and challenges faced by young families and adults. Available online through Tiq by Etiqa, Tiq CashSaver helps individuals to save and invest amidst a challenging economic landscape.

With rising costs of living and inflation rates of up to 4.8%, it is increasingly difficult for individuals to prioritise savings amidst ongoing financial obligations, according to Etiqa's 2023 Financial Fitness Survey, which interviewed 1000 Millennials and Gen Zs on their financial plans and habits. The study revealed that only 41% of respondents consistently allocate funds for savings each month, with the rest often deterred by the challenges of high living costs, alongside indulgences such as travelling and personal hobbies.

Tiq CashSaver seeks to address these issues through a customisable solution that provides flexibility to choose the length of the plan and premiums paid. With a minimum monthly savings amount starting from just S$1251, the plan is designed to encourage individuals to cultivate the habit of saving modest amounts and make investing simple and accessible. The plan also offers a yearly cash payout starting from the end of the second policy year, serving as a steady source of supplementary income2. Moreover, Tiq CashSaver offers unparalleled peace of mind with capital guaranteed at maturity, alongside the flexibility for guaranteed and non-guaranteed yearly cash benefits based on individuals' savings goals. The online application process, which does not require any medical examinations, also ensures a hassle-free experience for all applicants.

"Tiq CashSaver offers a flexible savings duration, catering to young families and adults seeking short to medium-term endowment plans that align with their financial goals. The significance of saving from as early as possible, starting modestly and progressing steadily, cannot be emphasised enough. With Tiq CashSaver, we aim to empower individuals to embark on their savings journey confidently, with a modest starting point," said Raymond Ong, CEO of Etiqa Insurance Singapore. "With today's financial pressures faced by Singaporeans, the Tiq CashSaver epitomises our unwavering dedication to delivering accessible solutions. The plan features a seamless online application process, requires no medical examinations, and offers affordable premiums."

Tiq CashSaver is also designed to serve as a safety net, offering protection and stability for applicants and their loved ones during difficult times. In the unfortunate event of death or terminal illness, Etiqa will provide support by reimbursing 101% of the total premiums paid3. In the case of accidental death, an additional 50% of the total premiums will be paid in addition to the Death Benefit4. Policyholders can also request an extended grace period of 60 days during tough financial circumstances5 to help maintain their savings plan payments, providing much-needed flexibility and protection. Future premiums will also be waived if the policy owner become totally and permanently disabled during the premium term6.
