AmMetLife Takaful Bhd together with AmBank Islamic Bhd yesterday officially launched ProtectSecure-i Murni at a simple ceremony held at Bangunan AmBank Group in Jalan Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur.
ProtectSecure-i Murni is a Shariah compliant regular contribution family takaful plan which is designed to cater specifically for Muslim needs. It provides protection against death and Total and Permanent Disability (“TPD”), additional coverage whilst performing the hajj and umrah, with waqaf, badal hajj and funeral benefits.
This plan was introduced in September last year, and since then AmBank Islamic has managed to acquire more than 800 applications worth in excess of RM1.5 million in terms of annual contributions.
Present at the launch were Datuk Wira Dr. Ameer Ali Mydin, , Dato’ Sulaiman Mohd Tahir, Group Chief Executive Officer, AmBank Group and Encik Azam Yusof, Chief Executive Officer, AmMetLife Takaful, Eqhwan Mokhzanee Bin Muhammad, Chief Executive Officer, AmBank Islamic and Jade Lee, Managing Director, Retail Banking, AmBank (M) Berhad.
“We are indeed very pleased with the launch of ProtectSecure-i Murni as the plan provides for the protection needs of our Muslim customers, especially those who are performing their Hajj or Umrah,” said Chairman, AmMetLife Takaful Datuk Sulaiman Mohd Tahir.
ProtectSecure-i Murni pays 100% of the basic sum covered plus the balance in Participant’s Investment Fund (“PIF”) in the event of death or TPD of covered person. Additionally, under this plan another 100% of the basic sum covered will be payable should death or TPD occur whilst performing Hajj or Umrah.
There is also an additional RM3,000 Badal Hajj benefit, where the nominee may appoint a wakeel to perform hajj on the participant’s behalf, ensuring the deed can be done even when the participant has passed on.
ProtectSecure-i Murni is designed to support Muslims in fulfilling their religious obligations by assisting Hajj or Umrah preparations with RM1,500 special allowance from individual’s PIF at the end of the third year.
Certificate owners can also make withdrawals from their PIF at the end of the fifth certificate year to support any financial needs in their life.
