2 January 2019, Singapore – China Life Insurance Singapore has launched China Life Lifetime Income Plan that enables you to save and receive a lifetime of yearly income1. As the estimated average life expectancy of Singaporeans is 85.4 years by 2040 and Singapore is ranked third in the world for longest life expectancy*, it is getting increasingly important to enjoy a stream of lifetime income for a more financially secure future.

Mr Tony Chow, Chief Executive of China Life Insurance Singapore said, "Our plan not only helps address the rising concerns of not having adequate savings in one's later years, it also allows customers to start getting their income payouts as early as 5 years after their entry age. For example, if a 25-year-old customer buys this plan and chooses a premium payment term of 3 or 5 years, he can choose to get his income payout from age 30, which he can use as he pleases for his lifestyle or other needs. It is important that regardless of age, we need to build a nest egg to ensure that we can have a lifetime of yearly income1 with capital guarantee2 as our life expectancy rises. China Life Lifetime Income Plan gives you a range of premium payment terms to choose how long you would like to take to pay your premiums and when you would like to receive your yearly income and use it as you wish. What’s more, there is no medical check-up needed to enjoy the benefits of this plan."

China Life Lifetime Income Plan also provides cover against death6 and terminal illness7. The plan can be purchased from China Life distribution network.
