OPTIMA GOLD is a unique plan from ALLIANCE INSURANCE offering a combination of security, savings and investments. You can customize your life insurance needs while adding critical illness and add other rider benefits to protect your loved ones from unforeseen eventualities in your life. With flexible payment option, this plan also enables you to save for your child’s education, your peaceful retirement or for creating any investment fund for your future needs.
|✓For Education||Success in tomorrow’s world will depend upon a good education. In view of the above, it is logical to assume that the best gift of life, parents can give to their children, is the gift of education. OPTIMA GOLD is an ideal plan for accumulating capital to meet the cost of higher education.|
|✓For Retirement||The biggest asset we have is our ability to earn a living. Post retirement it won’t matter how much we earned during our working life what actually matters is how much we saved. Retirement planning strategy should be implemented as soon as possible, so that regular contributions have a reasonable time to accumulate over a period.|
|✓For Protection||Securing the future is the prime focus of Optima Gold. As soon as the OPTIMA GOLD is in force, you will enjoy a guaranteed level of Life Assurance Protection best suited to your needs and requirements. This feature of the OPTIMA GOLD guarantees peace of mind for you and your loved ones. In the event of untimely death, your dependents/nominees will receive the Sum Assured or the value of the investment account, whichever is greater. However, if the additional basis option is chosen, then the Sum Assured plus the investment account value will be payable to the dependents.|
The OPTIMA GOLD is equipped with additional features to add value for you. The plan comes with a unique feature of the option to convert your Maturity benefit into an annuity*. The covers end upon attaining the age of 75 years after which the Maturity value can be availed in the form of a regular annuity* payment. Alliance will only charge you for the Fund management of your money while you can avail the annuity* benefit till the age of 95 years. The annuity* will be paid from your Maturity value for a period of either 5, 10, 15 or 20 years while fund will continue to earn interest! This essentially converts our Unitized Investment Linked plan into a Whole life plan with insurance cover till age 75 and cash value withdrawal option till age 95!
As an Investor, you may choose to pay a lump-sum amount which can then be used to fund your regular premiums in the future. Alternatively, by increasing your regular premium, you can reduce the contribution period of your plan. If exercised, this option can help you achieve your investment objectives over a shorter period.
This option enables you to automatically update your benefits every year regardless of your state of health. This gives you the peace of mind, in that you are able to guard against inflation and maintain the real value of your investment.
If this option is selected, regular contributions will increase on each plan anniversary by 3%, 5% or 10% of the original level of contribution. You may subsequently decide to waive your right to this “guaranteed insurability” by simply writing to us.
