Key Man Insurance
Key Man Insurance Plans
These are the policies taken by a company to secure against sudden loss (by death) of its key employee(s) who may be senior managers or directors or other employees with the technical expertise that is valuable for the company’s future and profits.

Generally the companies set off the premiums paid towards their Key Man policies against their business expenses. LICI, however does not assure or accept any responsibility for the tax treatment of the premiums paid by companies towards keeping their key man policies in force. Nor does it, in respect of the tax treatment of the proceeds received from LICI towards the surrender value or maturity value or claim by death of the key man. These are the issues to be resolved by the Companies and their accountants with the Inland Revenue Department.

The following plans are available for Key Man Insurance

1. All Endowment Assurance Plans
2. All Whole Life Plans
3. Money Back Plans
4. Term Assurance Plans


Endowment Assurance Plans
LICI's Endowment Assurance plans allow you to target a specific long term goal such as your retirement savings, child’s higher educational needs, etc and allow you to start saving immediately. The life insurance element ensures that the motive behind the savings plan is fulfilled even if the policyholder is no more; the targeted sum along with vested bonuses is payable to the intended beneficiary in case of unfortunate death of the life assured during the term of the policy. Some of the highlights of the endowment assurance plans are:

• World-wide risk coverage • Low premiums, High returns and fixed term of insurance • Policy loan facility after 3 years.

Endowment Assurance Plan With Profits (Plan 614)

Whole of Life Plans
Whole of Life plans are ideally suited to those people who do run their own businesses and hence do not ever need to retire. A whole of life plan can be an important component of one’s estate planning. These plans are available from ages 18 to 60 years. There are three types of Whole of Life Plans as listed below. The following are the important highlights of LICI’s whole of life plans:

• World-wide risk coverage • Lower premiums, Highest Bonuses • Policy loan facility after 3 years.

'Long Life' -Whole of Life Plan with Profits (Table 2F)
The whole of life premiums are generally payable though out the lifetime of the policyholder and the policy monies (sum assured + vested bonuses) are returned to his beneficiaries only on the death of the policyholder. However, LICI provides an extra benefit to its Whole of Life policyholders – it treats the policy as matured as soon as the life assured crosses 80 years of age (subject to the condition that the policy must have completed at least 40 years from the date of commencement) and pays the sum assured + bonuses vested till that date; policy will be terminated on payment of the maturity value.

Basic Benefits:
Death Benefit – Payment of the sum assured + the vested bonuses on death of the life assured.

Maturity Benefit – Pays the sum assured + bonuses vested till that date to the policyholder after his 80th year of age or after the policy has completed a minimum duration of 40 years from the commencement date, whichever comes later; policy will be terminated on payment of the maturity value.

Terminal Illness Benefit – 50% of the sum assured is payable if the life assured becomes terminally ill and the balance along with the vested bonuses is payable on the death of the assured.

Optional Benefits:
Accident Benefit Rider package (accidental death benefit + total and permanent disability benefit + premium waiver benefit).

Convertible Whole Life Plan With Profits (Table 28F)
A convertible whole life plan is available for ages between 16 and 50 years at entry. Under this plan the policyholder has an option to convert the Whole Life Plan into an Endowment Plan with a specified term (of 5 more years and upwards) after completion of 5 years.

This option may be exercised at the proposal stage itself or in the 5th year. On the other hand, if the conversion option is not exercised, the policy continues as a whole life plan with premium payment ceasing at age 70.

Basic Benefits:
Death Benefit – Payment of the sum assured + the vested bonuses on death of the life assured.

Maturity Benefit:
- If Conversion Option is Not Exercised: See under ‘Long Life’ – Whole Life Plan With Profits (Table 2F)
- If Conversion Option is Exercised: Maturity value is settled at the end of the chosen endowment term just as mentioned under Endowment Assurance Plan With Profits (Table 14F)

Terminal Illness Benefit:– 50% of the sum assured is payable if the life assured becomes terminally ill and the balance along with the vested bonuses is payable on the death of the assured.

Optional Benefits: The Accident Benefit Rider package is available only during the premium paying term and not for the entire term of the policy.

Money Back Plans (74F, 75F, 93F)
LICI's Money Back Policies are the best way to combine life insurance and liquidity. These are the most popular plans sold in Fiji. Periodical ‘money back’ in lump sum can be reinvested in a more profitable scheme or simply utilised for an emergency family need or fund that longstanding family vacation. Money Back Plans are available between ages 12 and 55 depending up on the term of the plan.

In all the money back plans, money is returned to the policyholder in the form of periodical ‘survival benefits’.

Smart Life 2 Plan (Plan 135F)

Welcome to our new investment oriented plan Smart Life-2. It is unlike a normal life insurance policy. Listed hereunder are its important features:
  •   It is a single premium plan – the entire premiums are paid upfront, at the time of taking the policy; the value of the premium is well below the value of the policy or the sum assured under the policy.
  • The policy is for a fixed term of 10 years.
  • Guarantees an interest rate of 3% per annum (Guaranteed Additions) throughout the policy term. In today’s falling interest rate regime, such a long term guarantee is rare and hence this is a huge attraction.
  • Imagine a fixed deposit that also covers your life risk! For very nominal extra premiums, you can opt for an additional term assurance cover as well as accidental death cover equal to the basic sum assured under the policy. This is the real clincher! One can enjoy a life insurance cover for 10 years and up to $100,000 for just a fraction of the premiums that you would have to pay for a normal insurance policy.
  • Policy Loan facility is available after one year. Policy can also be surrendered for cash after one year.
  • Maximum sum assured under the policy is $100,000.
  • Premium Rebates are available for high sum assured policies.

Conditions: Age at Entry: 20 to 60 years. Maximum Age at entry for opting Term Assurance Cover: 50 years last birthday. Maximum Age at entry for Accidental Death cover: 55 years last birthday. Unlike the oher policies, the Accident cover under Smart Life 2 Plan does not include Premium Waiver or Total & Permanent Disability benefits.

Basic Benefits
Death Benefit: Payment of the sum assured + the guaranteed additions made till the date of death of the life assured during the term of the policy.

Maturity Benefit: Payment of the sum assured + the guaranteed additions for the entire policy term of 10 years.
