Additional coverage for Life Insurance Plans and Non-Face to Face submission channels

Additional coverage for Life Insurance Plans

From 23 January until 30 April 2020 (the “Coverage Period”), the insured persons of Prudential’s in force life insurance plans who are unfortunately diagnosed with the “Novel Coronavirus” during the Coverage Period will be offered free additional Hospital Cash Benefit of HK$600 per day for up to 45 days with no waiting period.

We also understand that some customers may not be able to pay their renewal premiums in time due to special circumstances. As such, if the premium due date falls between 1 January to 1 March 2020 for selected Prudential’s life insurance products (including most medical and critical illness insurance plans), customers can apply for an extension of premium renewal grace period from 30 days to 90 days, allowing customers more flexibility and convenience for renewal premium payments.

If customers own any Prudential in force Medical or Critical Illness insurance plans on or before 26 February 2020 (the “Coverage Effective Date”), and are unfortunately Involuntarily Unemployed for over 30 consecutive days by 31 December 2020, you may defer your premium payments for up to 180 days, easing your financial burden.

From now until 30 April 2020, if you successfully take out any Prudential Individual Life Insurance Plans, you and your family can enjoy the Free Additional Novel Coronavirus Benefit on or before 31 December 2020.

For details, please refer to FAQs below or contact your Relationship Manager, or call Prudential Assurance’s service hotline at 2281 1188 (service hour: Mon – Fri 9am – 8pm, Sat 9am – 3pm, except Public Holiday).
