Great Eastern Family3: What You Need to Know

If you are looking for an endowment plan for the purpose of generating wealth for yourself and future family, Great Eastern Family3 could be a suitable plan. It is a whole life participating endowment plan that provides annual cash payouts and a final death payout. You can pay our premiums via a single premium payment or over 10 or 15 years. If you choose to pay with a single premium, you'll be eligible for a 5% discount. The policy is set up so that you pass on the policy to your child when they're financially capable of being the policyholder. They will then have the option to pass on this policy to their children. Once the 2nd policyholder dies, the last policyholder will get a death benefit.

Family3 starts paying out a 2% guaranteed cash benefit in addition to a non-guaranteed cash bonus after you finish paying your premiums, which makes it beneficial for people who want to get additional yearly income. However, while you have the freedom to pull out money from your savings plan, you also have the option of reinvesting the cash benefit for a potentially higher final payout. There is also a life insurance component that covers you for death, terminal illness and total and permanent disability.

Because it is structured to expire after the 3rd generation policyholder, you'll need to ensure that the people you pass this plan to will stay committed to the plan. Another drawback to the policy is that it doesn't provide a 100% capital guarantee. However, your grandchild may still get a payout that is higher than the premiums you paid considering that the plan accumulates value over multiple generations. However, this is provided that the policy isn't fully withdrawn via the annual cash benefits. It is also worth noting that this may not be the best plan for people looking for short to medium term savings plans due to the whole life coverage.

Optional Add-ons

Great Eastern provides the option of adding the Payer Benefit Rider for the Family3 plan. This rider will waive any future premiums should something unexpected happen, such as a death or total and permanent disability.

Claims & Contact Information

Endowment plans generally payout without you needing to file a claim. However, you should reach out to your financial advisor if you need to submit a claim for the life insurance portion of the policy.
