The Lifetime Needs Plan is designed to provide the member with the means of contributing to an investment fund that can meet the members life needs such as child education, retirement etc. and in addition also provide a life cover which becomes payable to the beneficiary in the event of the demise of the Life Assured.
There are three options available for the member to choose from. This has varying compositions of both the life cover and the investment element.
The Life assured is the only member who can be covered and must be aged 18-54 years. However, trustees and beneficiaries can be named.

Policies terminating after the 10th year will be treated as maturities whilst those terminating before the 10th year will be treated as surrenders. The policy shall terminate on the policy anniversary preceding the policyholder's 70th birthday.
