What is Etiqa’s eEASY save V plan for?
Big ticket costs like housing, wedding, and kids’ education can be tricky to save up for. With so many large expenses in the earlier halves of our lives, many of us find it hard to save up enough within such a short timeframe. That’s where Etiqa’s eEASY save V comes in.
Insurance savings plans like these are particularly important at this point, because bank deposit rates are low while stock market volatility is high.
If you keep your savings in a bank account, the returns are likely not high enough to even beat inflation. On the other hand, if you try to grow your savings by investing the cash, with markets as volatile as they are, you risk losing your capital.
With an insurance savings plan like Etiqa’s eEASY save V, there is now a middle ground for risk-averse investors. Let’s take a closer look at these key features of Etiqa’s eEASY save V plan.
2.68% p.a. guaranteed crediting rate
Optimise your savings and retire comfortably with guaranteed 2.68% p.a. crediting rate (for the first 6 years) with a premium size of $20,000 to $200,000. This is one of the highest returns on the market!
In addition, you can enjoy a non-guaranteed loyalty bonus equivalent to 0.6% of the account value at the end of 6 years. It is worth noting that the loyalty bonus applies at every 6th policy year so long as no partial withdrawal has been made prior.
In the current economic climate, high-interest savings accounts like the DBS Multiplier or UOB One account realistically offer only about 1% p.a. returns at most, falling short of what Etiqa’s eEASY save V can offer.
Meanwhile, you may be able to earn higher returns by investing the money, but the risk of losing your capital is also high in the short term. This is not ideal if you have a short investment horizon and a specific target amount, e.g. the downpayment for your home.
Option to withdraw savings after 6 years
eEASY save V is a flexible insurance savings plan. After the lock-in period of 6 years, you are free to make partial or full withdrawal without charges.
You can also continue holding the funds until 100 years old (the maturity date), but it will be at Etiqa’s prevailing crediting rate, which may not be 2.68% p.a.
With a 6-year lock in, this plan would be considered short-to-mid-term. It is certainly much shorter than traditional endowment plans which can last 10 or 20 years.
During the 6-year lock-in period, you can make a partial withdrawal without incurring penalties, but only under specific circumstances (if you or your spouse is diagnosed with terminal illness or physically/mentally incapacitated).
