With an MSV Child Savings Plan, you get all this:
101% of the full savings amount will be paid should the person insured by the Plan pass away.
Terminal Illness Benefit
We would consider paying up to 50% of the death benefit if the person insured by the policy is diagnosed with a terminal illness.
Funeral Expenses Benefit
The option to receive part of the death benefit immediately to cover funeral expenses, up to a maximum of EUR2,500
€2.50 if premium paid monthly (or proportionate multiples thereof if premium paid quarterly, half-yearly or annually e.g. €7.50 if premium paid quarterly).
Top Ups – (Optional)
No additional Policy Fee will be charged for any top-ups.
So long as there is at least 1 year remaining until the maturity of the plan, you may top up the savings by investing a single premium. An allocation charge will be taken for such top ups on the following basis:
Single Premium Top-Up
Up to €69,999
Between €70,000 and €114,999
Between €115,000 and €229,999
Death Benefit Charge
A variable charge will be taken each year to pay for any extra life insurance that you choose. No charge is made if you choose the Minimum Sum Insured.
The plan cannot be surrendered during the first three years. In the remaining years of the Plan, you may surrender the plan, subject to a penalty. The surrender charge is calculated at the rate of 1.5% multiplied by the number of years remaining till maturity of the Plan. For example, if the Plan is surrendered 5 years before maturity, the surrender charge is 7.5%.
Market Value Reduction
If you surrender your Plan before its maturity date, we retain the right to apply a Market Value Reduction, which reduces the value of your policy. This can only ever apply on surrender and cannot be applied
· upon maturity of the Plan
· on death before maturity.
This reduction is designed to protect investors who remain invested and its application means that you get a fair share of the with-profits fund in which your savings are invested.
All charges are reviewable and may be changed after the Plan has started, subject to us providing you with at least 90 days notice if they are changed.
