OCBC Al-Amin Offers Great Eastern Takaful One Plan-i
Last update: 28/06/2017

KUALA LUMPUR, June 28 (Bernama) --OCBC Al-Amin Bank Bhd†is strengthening its footing in the bancatakaful business through its maiden distribution of a regular contribution term takaful plan, the Great Eastern Takaful Bhd One Plan-i.†

Distributed exclusively by OCBC Al-Amin, it is distinctive for its high coverage at an affordable contribution.†

OCBC Al-Amin Chief Executive Officer†Syed Abdull Aziz Syed Kechik, said the offering was†timely in light of the bank's quest to expand its product shelf to include family takaful, especially considering the growing awareness of life and medical insurance/takaful as a critical element of the business.

According to Ernst and Young and the Malaysia Takaful Association, the current market penetration rate of Malaysia's family takaful sector stands at only 14.5 per cent, compared to that of†life insurance†at 41.2 per cent.†

Clearly, there is potential for takaful to grow, especially in the emerging affluent segment. In†future, we will continue to roll out more such products, with unique propositions that meet our customers' needs,†Syed Abdull Aziz said in a statement Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Great Eastern Takaful Chief Executive Officer†Zafri Ab Halim†said One Plan-i†provides a significant 10 per cent†increase in coverage every five years, an increment of up to three times, and without any increase in contribution.

"For example, a non-smoker male customer aged 35 who participates in a 20-year term plan for a sum covered of RM1 million at certificate inception will enjoy an additional sum covered of RM100,000 on the†fifth, 10th and 15th years.

It†allows†the total sum covered to accumulate to† RM1.3 million after 15 years with no increase in the contribution amount," he added.†

Starting April the banks have imposed a 50 sen processing fee on top of the 15 sen stamp duty on each cheque. The fee also applies to those applying for a Bankerís Cheque, Bank Draft and Cashierís Order. Do you think this additional charge is justified?
