Many eventualities, one solution- AIA

Complete Critical Cover

Life is unpredictable, especially when it comes to illnesses

When you buy insurance, you want it to provide you with financial assistance at the times where it will be most relevant and effective. Especially if you are the breadwinner, your loved ones should not be burdened or deprived when you have huge medical bills to pay.

AIA Complete Critical Cover is a critical illness protection plan designed to give you

comprehensive financial support to battle against an unexpected critical illness. It covers early, major, and catastrophic critical illnesses, including cancer, heart disease and stroke. But what’s unique about this plan is it pays for major cancer relapse too. And you can make multiple claims with total payouts of up to 200% of your insured amount. Such benefits make it one of the most attractive plans in town.

(6)

Benefits of this plan

Early payouts so you can seek prompt treatment

Early treatment is important towards recovery. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that upon early diagnosis, you can seek treatment to prevent illnesses from progressing to more advanced stages. The plan pays out up to 50% of the insured amount or up to $75,000 (applies to some Early Critical Illnesses) in the event of a qualifying diagnosis of any of the Early Critical Illnesses described on pages 7 and 8.

For some prevalent diseases such as diabetic complications‡ and angioplasty, the plan pays

up to 25% of the insured amount (subject to a limit of $25,000), whichever is lower, upon early diagnosis.

Immediate payouts of up to 200% in the event of a Catastrophic Critical Illness

For Catastrophic Illnesses, you will receive a lump sum of up to 200% of the insured amount (less any amount(s) paid out previously).

Multiple claims so you remain covered

AIA Complete Critical Cover does not terminate in the event of an Early Critical Illness or a Major Critical Illness claim. Should your condition take a turn for the worse, you may make further claims of up to 200% of the insured amount. It is possible to claim for a combination of multiple Early, Major or Catastrophic Critical Illness up to a maximum of 200% of the insured amount. Please note that there is a waiting period between some claims, which is briefly described in the Frequently Asked Questions on page 11.

Major Cancer Relapse Benefit

You will receive a payout of up to 100% of the insured amount for a claim for cancer under Major Critical Illness.

Recognising that cancer is unpredictable, should there be a relapse after a year from your remission, you may be eligible for a further payout of 50% of the insured amount (subject to a maximum total claim limit of 200% of the insured amount payable under your policy). This ensures you have the financial support to continue back on the road of recovery.

Premium waiver with continued protection for you

After you have made successful claim(s) for a Major Critical Illness or 2 Early Critical Illness (whichever is earlier), you will no longer have to pay future premiums while still being protected for the remaining balance of the insured amount under the policy. Each of the 2 Early Critical Illness claims must be at benefit level of 50% of the insured amount (subject to applicable limits).

AIA Complete Critical Cover does more than protect. It keeps you healthy too.

Getting protection comes with a cost. But with AIA Vitality, you can enjoy up to 15%# savings on your AIA Complete Critical Cover

(S$) premiums as you get healthier, giving you more motivation to maintain a healthy lifestyle. That’s why our plans do more than protect you financially. They keep you healthy too.
