In comparison to other critical illness plans, the unique selling point of Etiqa 3 Plus Critical Illness Plan lies in two areas: Complimentary Child cover and Special Conditions Benefit.
The Complimentary Child Cover provides a death benefit of S$20,000 each for up to 4 children, between 14 days to 16 years old, of the insured. In addition, the Special Conditions Benefit provides the insured with an additional 20% sum payout against Diabetic Complications and Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis (SRA), capped at S$25,000 per special condition.
However, do note that the Special Conditions Benefit is only claimable once. Coupled with the additional perks, such as a 100% sum cash payout upon diagnosis of any of the illnesses covered, a death benefit of S$20,000, as well as lower premiums offered, Etiqa 3 Plus Critical Illness Plan proves to be a critical insurance plan worth considering for individuals with or without children alike.
Etiqa 3 Plus Critical Illness Plan provides an add-on that provides coverage for 13 additional heart conditions and 11 neurological conditions. It costs less than S$400 annually to add for non-smoking customers in their 20's if they wish to get the maximum coverage at S$300,000. However, it does get more expensive as you get older. A 60 year-old customer would have to pay up to S$3,000 annually for the add-on at maximum coverage.
