In a bid to win back Nigerians confidence in insurance, Wapic Insurance Plc, has unveiled five new products to meet the unique lifestyles of people.
The products, which are classified under Wapic Smart Investment-linked Products, are to cater for the protection and goal oriented needs of individuals, families and businesses according to Rantimi Ogunleye, the Managing Director of Wapic Assurance Life Ltd.
The products are the Smart Life plan, Smart Life+ plan, Smart Scholar plan, Smart Senior plan, and the Smart Wealth plan.
“These plans come with the dual appeal of flexibility and convenience, focusing mainly on the family, education, retirement, short and medium term plans,” he said.
Ogunleye explained that the Smart Life+ Plan is a unique product designed to help individuals attain their goals and targets with added advantages.
“It is an insurance solution that provides you the opportunity of systematically accumulating funds towards meeting short term obligations and emergencies. It also guarantees the policyholder a more competitive interest rate, withdrawals without being penalised and a free life insurance cover,” he said.
He said the Smart Scholars Plan provides the opportunity to save funds towards financing the children’s education.
“The product also offers embedded insurance protection against the risk of demise and permanent disability on the life of either or both parents. It guarantees payment of the school fees whether or not the parents are alive, subject to the limit of a chosen targeted sum.
“The policy is written in the name of the child and provides a medical expense cover for the child as a result of accident while in school. It also provides a cash award for the child if he or she is the best in the class,” Ogunleye said.
With regard to the Smart Seniors Plan, he said it provides the opportunity to save funds towards retirement with an embedded insurance cover.
“It offers the policyholder highly competitive interest rates, free critical illness benefit, 200 per cent of the sum assured as permanent disability benefit.
In the event of demise, it offers the sum assured together with the account balance,” he said.
Ogunleye said the Wapic Smart Wealth Plan was an insurance solution that offers an opportunity of investment and embedded insurance protection against the risks of demise and critical illness.
“The insurance premium is deducted within the period of investment but insurance covers throughout lifetime even when you have taken the maturity proceeds.”
