Pension Benefit (PS0)

Pension Benefit (PS0)

Pension benefit (PS0) provides a regular payment on an annual, semi-annual or quarterly basis!

  1. Who is eligible for a pension from Medlife?
    Any beneficiary of a MEDLIFE insurance contract may choose to receive the benefit payable to him as a pension.
    Anyone who decides to start a new contract by investing a single premium in order to receive an instant pension. 
  2. For which rates is the pension benefit option available?
    It is available for all rates and for all benefits paid in the cases of contract expiry, death or permanent disability. 
    For a pension programme with instantly starting annuities after payment of a single premium.
  3. When do I have to decide, whether I want my funds to be paid in a lump sum or as a pension in regular intervals?
    You may take this decision anytime, but at the latest when the benefit becomes payable.
  4. How are pension payments effected? You may either choose to receive annuities for 10 or 15 years. Both of them provide a capital guarantee in the case of death. Annuities may be received in annual, semi-annual or quarterly instalments – please consider that a change of mode of payment during term is not possible. Each single instalment must exceed the amount of 100 USD/EUR.Important: Please note that each transfer involves bank charges which are outside our reference and cannot be influenced by us.
  5. What does “capital guarantee” mean?
    If the insured person dies during the pension period, it is guaranteed that the initial capital (single premium or proceeds from a life assurance contract) will be refunded less the amount of annuities paid. If at the moment of death the amount of annuities paid exceeds the amount of capital invested, the pension ends without further payments.
  6. How to obtain a pension programme and which documents to submit?
    If you wish to know beforehand how much pension you get out of a certain amount of capital, please refer to our rate tables, which will be provided to you on demand by your agent or by our customer service.
    In addition, we advise you to contact our customer service BEFORE submitting your application and ask for a specific proposal on basis of your personal data.   
    For your application please use the standard MEDLIFE proposal form and attach a copy of your passport. Indicate the chosen rate as described under point 7 of this information sheet and state the number of the policy from where the funds are taken in the case of a follow-up pension. Finally we ask you to attach the proposal you received from us with the schedule of payment you chose.
    Please also fill in the “Enclosure for annuity proposal” (cf enclosure as below),which provides space to state your exact banking details for the transfer of the annuities, including the name of the account holder, the account number and the SWIFT-code of the receiving bank as well as the tax-number and –residence.
