Key features of the Sacos Education Plan

By now, you must have read about some of the key features of the Sacos Education Plan and how it can help you pay for your your child’s tuition fees. There are other interesting features of the Sacos Education Plan and we have listed all of them below to help you make your final decision.

Key features of the Sacos Education Plan:

  • Policy Term

Unlike other life insurance policies, there are only three term plans available – 10 years, 15 years and 20 years.

  • Schedule of Benefits

The schedule of benefits are paid in the last five years of the plan, prior to maturity. For example in a 10-year plan, the survival benefits are paid in Year 5, Year 6, Year 7, Year 8, Year 9 and Year 10 of the policy term. Unique to the Sacos Education Plan, the purpose of this schedule is to coincide with tuition payments such as all five years of secondary school.

  • Maturity

Upon maturity of the policy, the remainder of the sum assured, plus accrued bonuses is paid out to the policy holder.

  • Minimum Sum Assured

While there is no maximum sum assured, the minimum sum assured is SCR100,000.

  • Death and Permanent Disability

Upon the unfortunate demise or permanent disability of the policyholder, the full sum assured plus accrued bonuses is paid to the beneficiary.

  • Policyholder

In contrast to the Sacos Junior Plan, the policy holder in this case is the proposer of the policy – the parent or legal guardian.

  • Beneficiary

Unlike other plans, parents cannot just name any beneficiary to this policy. The beneficiary must be the child whose education will benefit from the policy.

  • Policy Advance

Up to 90% of the Cash Surrender Value of the policy may be granted for emergency needs as a policy advance.
