What are Endowment Plans?
Endowment plans are life insurance saving plans offered by insurance companies.
The aim is to help policyholders save towards specific financial goals. Policy holders can contribute a regular amount for a designated period of time or pay a lump sum upfront at the start of the policy.
Upon maturity of the policy, you will be given a lump sum payout with the guaranteed return. It is best to study the plan carefully as certain endowment plans offers non-guaranteed returns.
Why Gro Capital Ease?
The minimum single premium for online purchase starts at $10,000 which is payable via PayNow QR, eGIRO (DBS/POSB) or Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS) funds.
If a purchase is made through a financial advisor representative, the minimum payable is S$20,000 via cash, eGIRO or SRS. The maximum single premium limit for each insured is $500,000.
As compared to Endowment plans offered by other providers, Gro Capital Ease is the only endowment plan that lets you pay via your Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS) funds.
If you have funds sitting in your Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS), you can consider buying this tranche of Gro Capital Ease using your SRS funds for the higher guaranteed returns.
