PrimeShield

PrimeShield

A health insurance plan designed to complement Basic Eldershield that provides long-term coverage against severe disability.

Please note that only ElderShield policyholders may apply for this plan.

What it covers

Severe disability

If you are incapable of performing at least three activities of daily living [1], we pay a monthly disability benefit for life, less any payment under your Basic ElderShield plan. We also give you a one-time lump sum benefit which is equal to three times your monthly disability benefit.

Dependant care benefit

If your child is under 21 years old and you become severely disabled, we pay an additional 25% of the monthly disability benefit for up to 36 months in your lifetime.

Get-well benefit [2]

You will receive a one-time payout equivalent to three times your monthly disability benefit if you recover from the severe disability.

Death during severe disability [2]

We give a one-time payout equivalent to three times your monthly disability benefit in the event of death while receiving the monthly disability benefit under this policy.

Features

We guarantee the monthly disability benefit for life, as long as you are severely disabled.

You can use up to $600 from your Medisave account (per insured person per year) to pay for your premiums.
