When it comes to securing your future, AIA has taken a giant leap forward with its latest revisions to living products. Let's dive into the key points that make these changes a real game-changer:


1. Early Coverage for Children's Trauma:

AIA is putting families first by lowering the minimum age for standalone children's trauma coverage to a mere three months. This significant reduction, down from the previous requirement of two years, ensures that your little ones are protected right from the start.


2. Extended Reinstatement Period:

In a move that shows AIA's commitment to their customers, they've extended the life buyback reinstatement period from 30 to 60 days. This gives policyholders more time and flexibility when it comes to reinstating their coverage, providing peace of mind when you need it most.


3. Enhanced HIV-Related Benefits:

AIA has revamped their approach to HIV-related benefits. They've bid farewell to the benefit that paid out on the diagnosis of medically or occupationally acquired HIV. In its place, they've introduced a new benefit that offers payouts upon the diagnosis of advanced AIDS, regardless of how the virus was transmitted.


4. Clearer Terminal Illness Definition:

Clarity is key, and AIA knows it. They've made it crystal clear that their terminal illness definition hinges on a life expectancy of less than 12 months, irrespective of all reasonable medical treatments. This ensures policyholders have a precise understanding of what to expect.


5. Generous Bereavement Support:

AIA has increased their bereavement support benefit from $15,000 to $25,000 in cases of joint policy ownership. What's more, this boost means that probate is no longer required, streamlining the process during a challenging time.


In a nutshell, these enhancements are a breath of fresh air for AIA customers. It's worth noting that these changes come into effect for new claims on or after October 10, 2023. For claims made before this date, rest assured that AIA will assess them based on the more favourable terms of your original policy. With AIA's updated living products, your future just got a whole lot brighter.
