Manulife’s New Product Offers More Security and Protection

Surabaya– To meet market demand for an affordable, yet greater security and protection product, PT Asuransi Jiwa Manulife Indonesia (Manulife Indonesia) today launched a new product called Secure Income Replacement.

“The product’s unique features align with our new Company slogan – “Bringing Dreams to Life” for everyone, at every stage of their life,” said Adi Purnomo, Manulife Indonesia Vice President Director, from the product launch press conference in Surabaya. He was accompanied by Nelly Husnayati, Executive Vice President and Chief Agency Officer; Miftah Choer, Product Development Senior Manager; and, Patrick Atkins, Assistant Vice President, Agency.

As the exclusive Life Insurance Partner of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, Manulife Indonesia has recently integrated its new Olympic marketing theme – ‘Bringing Dreams to Life’ – across all business units. The theme is aimed at promoting Manulife’s strong commitment to helping customers realize their financial and retirement dreams.

Secure Income Replacement
With Secure Income Replacement, if the Insured dies or suffers total permanent disability as a result of an illness or an accident, it will pay 100 per cent of the Sum Insured plus return 100 per cent of the premium. Moreover, if there is no claim and the Insured is still alive at the end of the term, Secure Income Replacement will return 100 per cent of the premium1.

“Either way, Secure Income Replacement provides security for your family’s income – something that you would not find from any standard term life product. You can also choose from two available plans: a 5-year premium payment period with 10-year coverage or a 10-year premium payment period with 15-year coverage,” described Adi Purnomo.
