Manulife China Bank Life Assurance launches life insurance plan with double protection and guaranteed payouts

March 5, 2020

Manila, Philippines - Manulife China Bank Life Assurance Corporation (MCBL) recently launched Assure Max, an insurance plan that protects you and your health, provides funds for future expenses, and gives you the potential for additional earnings.

MCBL Assure Max provides a life insurance benefit equal to 200% of your basic coverage. Customers can select from two options depending on their needs – coverage for 20 years, or up to the age of 65. Customers can choose to pay for five or 10 years. In addition to these, Assure Max also provides customers with living benefits including guaranteed cash payouts* starting from either the seventh or 11th year, depending on their pay period, and a lump-sum cash benefit* equal to 100% of their basic coverage at the end of the insurance term. Customers can also benefit from potential additional earnings through non-guaranteed dividends. Most importantly, Assure Max protects customers against the financial burdens of unexpected accidents, disability, or critical illness with its optional add-ons.

“Assure Max is a plan that empowers Filipinos to live life to the fullest. The double protection gives customers confidence that their family’s future is secure, even if unforeseen events happen. The living benefits provide funds that can be used to help people realize their big life goals: whether that’s planning for a child’s education, having a comfortable retirement, or leaving a legacy for loved ones,” said Sandeep Deobhakta, President and CEO of MCBL.

“People have different priorities depending on where they are in life. No matter which stage they’re at, we are committed to provide the products that will help them live their best lives,” Deobhakta added.

*Payouts and lump-sum cash benefits are given as long as the insured is alive
