How it Works
Mr Lee, age 35, non-smoker, plans to retire at 65 years old and would like to receive a Target Monthly Income5 of S$5,000 for 20 years till he is 85 years old. He purchases a Manulife SmartRetire policy and chooses to pay his premiums annually for 10 years.
To help Mr Lee achieve his investment goals faster, in the first year, he will receive up to S$5,463 of additional fund(s) units as his Welcome Bonus1. Every 3 years, he will also receive a Loyalty Bonus1 of additional fund(s) units.
At the end of 10 years, at age 45, when his premium payment term ends, his illustrated5 account value at age 65 will be at S$969,764.
Income Stream for Retirement
At his selected Target Retirement Age of 65, Mr Lee starts to receive a Target Monthly Income5 of S$5,000 regularly from his policy to fund his retirement passion. Alternatively, if he is not in need of the Target Monthly Income5, he may stay invested in the fund(s).
Over this period, he is also covered in the event of Death.
How to Apply
1 Please refer to the Product Summary and Policy Contract for more details.
2The Guaranteed Monthly Income (less any policy debt) will start one month after the policy anniversary immediately after the Life Insured reaches the chosen retirement age and to the end of his chosen Income Payout Period. For a single-life policy, the Life Insured will also be the policy owner.
3 Diagnosis of the Loss of Independence (LOI) must be confirmed and certified by a medical examiner. Manulife will pay the LOI income as long as you meet the LOI definition. You cannot leave the LOI income due under this benefit with Manulife. This benefit ends immediately on the date you recover and are no longer in the state of LOI. If you recovered but lose your independence once more, you are entitled to this benefit again as long as you continue to meet the LOI definition.
4 Not applicable to single premium plan.
5 At the point of application, the policy requires that you select your Target Income Goal, which is the sum of Target Monthly Income you aim to receive over the target retirement period starting from your Target Retirement Age. Changes made to Target Income Goal after policy inception will not affect any basic or supplementary benefits of the policy. The policy does not offer any guarantee that your selected Target Income Goal will be achieved. Target Monthly Income is dependent on the actual fund(s) performances meeting the illustrated rate of return.
6 You can choose to withdraw a fixed dollar amount from the fund(s) on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis. You may exercise this option after the Premium Payment Term. If this option is activated before the Target Retirement Age, the regular income drawdown will cease at the Target Retirement Age.
7 You are not allowed to partially withdraw units from the Policy in the first 2 policy years. The minimum amount that can be withdrawn each time is S$500, subject to a minimum balance of S$1,000 in the Account. After the 2nd policy year, a surrender charge will be imposed on the partially withdrawn amount, if the partial withdrawal request takes place during the Premium Payment Term. Please refer to the Product Summary for the surrender charge table for more details.
8 The policy illustration is based on a fund management charge of 1.25% per annum on illustrated investment rate of return of 4% per annum. The rate of return is used purely for illustrative purposes but it is a Life Insurance Association of Singapore (LIA) prescribed rate of return for policy illustration – the actual rate may be higher or lower. The actual benefits payable will depend on the actual performance of the Manulife SmartRetire fund(s) selected. The performance of the Manulife SmartRetire fund(s) is not guaranteed and the account value may be less than the principal invested. No guarantee is given, expressed or implied, on any amount invested.
