Sun Fit and Well Advantage 10 Proposal
The best way to understand this plan is by a sample proposal. So now, I’ll be showing you a quotation for Sun Fit and Well Advantage 10 that I created for myself.
Federico Suan, Jr. | 25 yrs old | Male | Non-smoker
Annual Premium: Php 52,860
Semi-Annual: Php 28,015.80
Quarterly: Php 14,536.50
The life insurance coverage is Php 1 Million for the Php52,860 annual premium. If you’ll notice, the premium becomes slightly expensive when you decide to pay it semi-annually or quarterly instead of annual mode. It is normal in all traditional life insurances, and we call the added price as the modal factor.
Thus, you can save more money if you pay it annually. By how much? You can save as much as 10% to 12% compared to paying it quarterly or monthly, respectively.
Health Insurance Benefits of Sun Fit and Well
Here are the health insurance benefits I can get from the plan.
Major Critical Illness Benefit
I will get Php 1 Million if I get diagnosed with any of the 64 major critical illnesses. I can use this amount to get the treatment I need so I can recover faster.
It is also the amount that my family will get if I die for whatever reasons.
In my case, if I die early, it will give me peace of mind that my younger sister can continue schooling, and my grandmother can still buy her medication.
Total Disability Benefit (TDB)
Sun Life will waive my future payments once I get disabled due to an accident within the paying period of 10 years. It means that I don’t have to pay for the plan and still enjoy its benefits.
Accidental Death Benefit (ADB)
If I die due to an accident, my beneficiaries will get the additional Php 1 Million on top of the life insurance coverage. Thus, my beneficiaries will get Php 2 Million
Minor Critical Illness Benefit
I can get Php 200,000 once I become diagnosed with a minor critical illness. Also, I can claim up to 3 times, but the 3rd claim will only be Php 100,000.
Specific Cancer Booster
I will get Php 500,000 if I get diagnosed with any of the 16 major cancer conditions. Aside from it, I will also receive an additional 50% of hospital income benefit, post-hospital benefit, home recovery benefit, and palliative care.
Hospital Income Benefit
The amount I will receive is Php 1,250 per day if I get confined due to a critical illness. I can claim up to 90 days of confinement per group of critical illness and only up to 4 groups.
If confined in ICU, I will get a double amount of Php 2,500 per day.
Post Hospitalization Benefit
I will receive Php 5,000 following the hospital discharge. In this case, I can use this amount for a follow-up checkup.
Home Recovery Benefit
I will get Php 625 per day following the hospital discharge. It is computed based on the number of days confined in a hospital.
So, for example, I’m confined for 30 days, then I will get Php 37,500 as my hospital income benefit, Php 5,000 for my post-hospitalization benefit, and Php Php18,750 for my home recovery benefit.
Palliative Care Benefit
I’ll get Php 100,000 if I become terminally ill with a life expectancy of 6 months or less. I can use this amount for my palliative care or in providing me relief from pain and stress caused by the illness.
