With an MAPFRE MSV Life Flexi Plan, you get all this:
Payment of the Sum Insured or the Policy Account whichever is the greater when the Person Covered dies.
Terminal Illness Benefit
Payment of up to 75% of the Policy Account as a pre-payment of the Death Benefit if the Person Covered is diagnosed to be terminally ill before the Plan finishes.
Funeral Expenses Benefit
Payment of the cost of funeral expenses (subject to a maximum of €2,500) in the form of a partial pre-payment of the Death Benefit.
Designation of Beneficiaries
You can appoint one or more beneficiaries to receive the benefit under the Plan, when this is due. There is no charge for this arrangement to be implemented and it requires only the completion of a simple form. The appointment of a beneficiary (and acceptance thereof) under a life insurance contract does not need to be confirmed in a will and it also supersedes the provisions of a will if there is any conflict between the two.
Cash Surrender Benefit
Option to surrender the Plan in full before maturity. The surrender amount is calculated by applying the surrender charge (and MVR if applicable) to the Policy Account.
Policy Loan Benefit
Option to apply for a loan from us, up to 85% of the Cash Surrender Value of the Plan, using only the Plan as security.
Payment of the Policy Account upon maturity of the Plan.
€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 - Allocation Charge
A percentage deduction from the Top Up premium paid will be made in accordance with the following allocation bands:
Top Up contribution paid
€250 - €114,999
€115,000 - €229,999
€230,000 and over
Death Benefit Charge
A variable charge to pay for the Sum Insured that you select. No charge is made if you choose the Minimum Sum Insured.
If you decide to stop your Plan in the first 3 years, we will charge 100% of its value.
In the remaining years of the Plan, the charge is calculated at the rate of 1.5% multiplied by the number of years remaining till maturity of the Plan. The maximum surrender penalty is 30%. For example, if the Plan is surrendered 10 years before maturity, the surrender charge is 15%. The following surrender charges apply to any Top Up Contributions paid: Surrender within 1 year of Top Up 3.0% Surrender after 1 year but before the end of 2 years of Top Up 2.0% Surrender after 2 years but before the end of 3 years of Top Up 1.0% Surrender after 3 years of Top Up No Surrender Charge All standard charges are reviewable and may be changed after the Plan has started. We undertake to inform you of such changes and the effect on the Policy Conditions within a reasonable time-frame.
Market Value Reduction
If you cash in your Plan before its maturity date, we retain the right to effect an MVR in addition to the surrender charge applicable. The MVR cannot be applied upon maturity of the Plan or in the event of the payment of the Death Benefit. 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 by MAPFRE MSV Life p.l.c. and may be changed after the Plan has started, subject to them providing you with at least 90 days notice if they are changed.
