Unique unit-linked endowment plan with enhanced insurance cover feature that offers protection + wealth creation

Mumbai, July 12, 2011: Future Generali India Life Insurance Company, the Insurance joint venture between Future Group of India and Generali Group of Italy, has launched Future Generali Bima Advantage, a unit-linked endowment plan that not only helps build wealth, but also offers protection, with an option to double your insurance cover from the very inception.

The policy holder can opt for Enhanced Insurance Cover to enhance the life cover under the policy, at inception and in the event of demise of the life assured, the Enhanced Insurance Cover sum assured is paid in addition to basic plan sum assured, to the nominee.

On maturity of the policy, fund value as on date will be paid to the life assured. The policy holder can choose to receive the maturity benefit under settlement option through periodical payments after the maturity date for up to 5 years. On death of the life assured during the settlement period, the fund value will become payable. Future Generali Bima Advantage has term options of 10 to 30 years and is available for customers in the age group of 7 to 65 years.

The basic premiums, net of applicable charges, are invested in unit funds of the customer's choice. This plan provides for a choice of investment funds, thereby, adding flexibility in directing the investments to any or all of the 6 unit linked funds of the company. 12 free fund switches per year means investors also enjoy flexibility to manage their investment actively. Future Generali Bima Advantage also allows four free partial withdrawals in a policy year, facilitating easy access to invested funds, whenever required.

Minimum basic sum assured for policy holders between 7 to 45 years, is half the policy term or 10 times the annualised basic premium, whichever is higher. For policy holders aged 45 years & above, the minimum sum assured is 0.25 times the policy term or 7 times the annualized basic premium, whichever is higher.
