Can I pay my premium due on 01/05/2018 in June to enjoy the 0% GST since I have 30 days grace period?
Yes, you can pay your premium in June but it is still subject to GST apportionment*. The revision of GST is subject to the transitional rules under Section 66 of the GST Act 2014 (“GST Act”).

I have an Investment-Linked policy and the premium is due on 15/06/2018. Do I pay the premium without the 6% GST?
Unlike Traditional policy, Investment-Linked policy’s premium does not include GST thus the same amount is payable. The GST 6% is only applicable to the monthly policy fee and insurance charges for non-life coverage (i.e. medical & health, personal accident, critical illness without death benefit etc).

Effective 1 June 2018, we have implemented GST 0% so the monthly policy fee and insurance charges due from 1 June 2018 onwards is based on 0% GST.

(Note: The scope of non-life policies is subject to change by Royal Malaysia Customs)

My premium due date is in June 2018 but I have paid my premium in May 2018, will I receive the reimbursement of the GST charges?
No. If you have paid your premium inclusive of GST 6% before 1 June 2018, we will not refund the GST even though your premium due date is in June 2018. This is in accordance with GST transitional rules under Section 66 of the GST Act 2014 (“GST Act”).

I have paid my yearly premium due on 01/01/2018. With the revision of GST to 0%, will I get any pro-rated GST refund?
No. For premium due before 1 June 2018, there is no pro-rated GST refund. This is in accordance with GST transitional rules under Section 66 of the GST Act 2014 (“GST Act”).

For further details please refer to item 17.11 of FAQ dated 22 May 2018 released by Customs website at http://gst.customs.gov.my/en/rg/SiteAssets/FAQ_BIPDF.pdf

Why I received Premium Notice for premium due on/after 01/06/2018 is still inclusive of 6% GST?
Premium Notice is issued 30 days before the premium due date where we have yet to amend the GST rate to 0%. Therefore, if you have yet to remit your payment, please pay the premium amount without the GST 6% for premium due date on/after 1 June 2018.

Why do I still receive Tax Invoice when GST is 0%?
You will continue to receive Tax Invoice even though GST is 0% because GST is still applicable but just at 0% rate.

My policy was incepted prior to 01/06/2018 but subsequently, I have cancelled policy.  Do I get my premium refund inclusive of GST paid earlier?
Yes, GST will be refunded for cancellation of policy.

Non-forfeiture Option

What are the options available if I wish to discontinue with the premium payments but at the same time do not lose the insurance cover?
If you opt to discontinue with the future premiums, you may consider the following few options:

  • to let the policy run on Automatic Premium Loan (APL) if the policy has acquired Cash Surrender Value until the Cash Surrender Value is exhausted.
  • to convert the policy to a Reduced Paid-up policy according to the amount of surrender value available. Future premiums are fully paid up and you continue to enjoy the insurance cover under the original period of insurance but with reduced sum assured.
  • to convert the policy to an Extended Term Assurance according to the amount of surrender value available. The period of coverage depends on the amount of surrender value available. All riders attached will be terminated. The policy has now become a term policy with original sum assured less any outstanding loans. All future premium payments cease upon conversion. The availbility of this option is subject to the type of policy purchased.

What is Cash Value?
Cash value simply means a sum of cash refund payable upon surrendering a life policy.

What is APL?
APL stands for "Automatic Premium Loan". APL is typically applicable by default after your policy acquired a surrender value. It is specified in the policy contract that any amount of unpaid premium will automatically be paid through a premium loan at the end of the grace period. You would have to pay back the loan with interest. The current Automatic Premium Loan Interest Rate is 7% per annum and this interest rate is subject to change by the Company from time to time.

Can I borrow money against my life insurance policy?
If you own a whole life or an endowment insurance policy, you can take out a policy loan against the cash value that had built up in the policy. Generally, the policy will acquire cash value after being in force for three full policy years. Compound interest is chargeable on the policy loan at a rate at which the Company shall determine from time to time. Any Policy Loan outstanding will be deducted before any claims is payable. The current Policy Loan Interest Rate is 7% per annum and this interest rate is subject to change by the Company from time to time.

As for an Great Universal Life policy, you can take out a policy loan against the policy account value net of surrender charge (if any). The Policy Loan Interest Rate is the prevailing crediting rate plus 2%. This interest rate is subject to change by the Company from time to time. 

When can I apply for a policy loan?
A loan is available when the policy has acquired a cash value. A policy loan based on a percentage of the gross cash value subject to deduction of outstanding loan or APL, if any can be granted. Policy loans are not available for investment-linked, HealthCare and term policies. 

You can apply for loan simply by:

  • Asking the assistance of your Life Planning Advisor
  • Mail your request to our Head Office address or your nearest branch
  • Fax us at our Customer Service Fax: +603 4259 8198

Nomination

Making a nomination
The purpose of having life insurance is to ensure that your loved ones are financially protected should anything happen to you. It is then important that your loved ones can access the funds quickly by ensuring all your policies are nominated.

In case of non-Muslim policy owner, a trust will be created in favour of the nominee under the following circumstances:

·         If the nominee is the spouse or child of the policy owner, or

·         If the nominee is the policy owner’s parent (provided that there is no living spouse or child at the time of such nomination).

However, in the case of a Muslim policy owner, a trust will be not created in the above circumstances. The nominee of a Muslim policy owner takes the policy moneys only as an executor and must distribute the moneys in accordance with Islamic laws.

What happens when there is no nomination?
Where no nomination has been made, the insurance company shall pay the policy moneys to the applicant who produces the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration, which may take several years.

*Grant of Probate- a formal document issued by the court authorising the executor named by a deceased person in his will to administer his estate in accordance to the deceased’s will.

*Letters of Administration-a formal document issued by the court to a person to administer the estate of a deceased who did not make a will.

How do I make a nomination?
If you are 16 years old and above, you can nominate an individual(s) to receive the policy moneys in the event of your demise. Nomination can usually be done at the time of application of the life policy or at any other time, when necessary. The nomination form must be signed by a witness who is 18 years old and above, of sound mental health and who is also not your nominee.

You can nominate or make changes on your current nominee by filling up Appointment/ Changes of Nominees Form. The latest nomination will supersede all previous nominations.
