Limits of Benefits
Minimum Total Benefits (Service* and Cash) – GHS 20,000
Maximum Total Benefits (Service* and Cash) – GHS 100,000
Cover Percentages for the different categories of insured lives are as follows:
|Member||Cover Level-Service Benefit||Cover Level-Cash Benefit||Minimum Age at Entry(Last Birthday)||Maximum Age at Entry(Last Birthday)||Maximum Number of Covered Lives|
⦁ Waiver of Premium:
You will no longer be required to pay premiums if death should occur early or on attainment of age 60. However, all the insured lives are still entitled to their benefit under the policy.
The waiver of premium benefit applies only if you were aged between age 18 and 50 at the time you took the policy. The automatic benefit escalator ceases when this benefit takes effect.
⦁ Accidental Death Benefit.
You are entitled to your total benefit as specified in the policy schedule in the event that any of the insured lives passes on through an accident during the waiting period. This benefit is subject to the lapse rule in the first year of the policy.
⦁ Automatic Annual Premium Escalator
Your total premium will be increased every year by 10% (excluding the policy fee). The increase takes effect each anniversary of the Policy Start Date.
The increase in premium will result in an increase in the Cash Benefit by 7.5% each year to protect your cash benefit against the effect of inflation. It also guarantees the delivery of the services when any of the insured lives passes on.
Conditions Precendent To Benefits
Waiting Period: This is a period from the Policy Start Date during which no benefit is payable.
Waiting Period below applies to lives insured from the inception of the policy and for lives added after policy inception.
|Covered Life||Waiting Period|
|Main life, Spouse and Dependent Children,||6 months|
|Extended Family||12 months|
⦁ Lapse Rule
Your policy will lapse if you fail to pay premiums for four (4) consecutive months from the payment due date. This Lapse rule is applicable only in the first year of all polices. Policies after their first policy anniversary will be subjected to the Never Lapse Feature
⦁ Never Lapse Feature.
This feature is applicable to policies after the first policy anniversary. Missed premiums will not result in the forfeiture of benefits. If there is any outstanding premiums in the lifetime of the policy, the total benefit due will be pro-rated by applying a factor to the total sum assured. The factor will be a ratio of the total amount of premiums paid to the total expected premium from date of inception to date of death.
In the payment of claims, the total benefit due will be first used in the payment of the service benefit. Any excess amount will be paid as a Cash benefit.
⦁ Amendment of Cash Benefit
The cash benefit can be increased or decreased in the lifetime of the policy as long as the total benefit amount does not exceed the maximum limit. Changing from a lower to a higher amount will be subjected to the same waiting period as a new policy.
If a claim arises during the waiting period, the old Cash Benefit will apply. Changing from a higher to a lower amount will not require any waiting period.
⦁ Amendment of Service Benefits
The list of selected services at policy inception cannot be changed during the term of the policy.
At claim stage, you can vary the services (excluding the basic services) using the full service list and cost covered at policy inception. The total cost of services selected cannot exceed the Service Benefit paid by Prudential.
Any additional service requested beyond the Service Benefit determined by Prudential shall be charged at the current cost from the funeral home and will be paid by the policyholder.
