Last Updated on by Tree of Wealth

Gro Saver Flex is yet a new savings plan with Secondary Life Insured (SLI) feature to add on the legacy building element for those that would like a long term wealth growth instrument. One of the new savings plan from NTUC Income, it provides a single premium or limited pay premium term with accumulation period of 5 more years as well as a new policy term of up till 120 years old.

There is also Death, Total Permanent Disability (TPD) and Terminal Illness coverage, as well as Cancer Waiver rider available.

It is similar to the previous Gro Gen Saver, albeit without the capital breakeven on 13th year (Gro Gen Saver does), but you can still make flexible withdrawals. However, this is not recommended.

Features At a Glance for NTUC Income’s Gro Saver Flex

Gro Saver Flex is a one of a kind savings plan that allows you to choose your premium and policy terms to best meet your financial needs and receive protection at the same time. With Gro Saver Flex, you can also plan for continuity of wealth accumulation.

Flexible Premium and Policy terms

Choose to use cash or Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS) for your single premium term option!

Similar to the previous Gro Gen Saver, this plan can also go up to age 120 for the policy term. Premiums term ranges from single premium to 5, 10, 15, 20 and the new 25 and 30 years term. The advantage is that after your premium years have stopped, your wealth in the plan will continue to grow and compound continuously until you are age 120.

The idea is not to wait until 120 years old to receive the grand maturity amount (although it will be good to receive it then) but to accumulate and grow to have flexible cash withdrawal as and when you need it, as it is similar to an investment tool that is ongoing for life.

Secondary Life Insured (SLI)

Similar to the previous Gro Gen Saver , to add on to continue the legacy building, choose to appoint spouse or child (below age 18) to continue compounding the wealth growth in the event of death of the primary life insured. The plan will continue to grow for the SLI until the original Life Insured’s 120 years old, extending the wealth growth to the next generation.

Death and Terminal Illness Protection

In the event of death, family members will receive 105% of the total premiums and 101% of the surrender value (guaranteed & non guaranteed bonuses), whichever is highest, and plan will terminate thereafter paying out.

Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) Benefit

Upon TPD before age 70, this benefit pays out 2 years worth of annual premium of the base plan. With the Savings Protector Rider, it waives off future premiums of the base plan upon TPD.

Maturity Benefit

At the end of the policy term, there is a maturity amount consisting of the guaranteed and non-guaranteed yields, as well as the cash benefits of the wealth accumulated.

Guaranteed Insurability At Life Milestones

Life Milestone Events Includes:

  • Getting Married
  • Getting First Property

  • Having a newborn

Guaranteed Issuance Option (GIO)
