The purchase of a long-term insurance policy (life insurance policy) in Hong Kong is being protected by the "Guideline 29 - Guideline on Cooling-off Period” which is formulated by the Insurance Authority ("IA"). The guidelines allow policyowner to review the terms of the insurance contract within a reasonable time after the insurance contract is issued, and change the previous purchase decision. Please note that the cooling-off period is only applicable to newly purchased life insurance policies, and the new add-on contract is not applicable to existing policies in effect.
Policyowner has a right to cancel the policy within the Cooling-off Period and obtain a refund of any premiums and levies paid by giving a written notice to us (for investment-linked insurance plan, less a deduction of the amount (if any) by which the value of the investment has fallen at the time when the cancellation notice is received by us). Policyowner must sign the notice of cancellation, return the policy (if applicable) and ensure that the notice and policy (if applicable) must be received directly by our office at 19/F, 1111 King's Road, Taikoo Shing, Hong Kong within 21 calendar days Cooling-Off Period (that is, within 21 calendar days immediately following the day of delivery of the policy to the policyowner or policyowner’s nominated representative). No refund of premium and levy paid can be made if a claim payment under the policy has been made prior to policyowner request for cancellation.
After the expiration of the Cooling-off Period, if policyowner cancel the policy before the end of the policy term, the projected total cash value/surrender benefit (if any) may be less than the total premium the policyowner has paid.
There are various protection plans (such as medical, hospitalization, critical illness) that are subject to a waiting period stated in the respective policies. If a claim on insurance against an illness is submitted within the waiting period and after the effective date of the policy, no claim payment will be payable for the medical expenses incurred due to the illness or its symptom(s) manifested. For terms and conditions of the waiting period, those stipulated in the policy contract shall prevail.
A grace period is a period of time within 31 calendar days from the premium due date and in which the policy is still in force even without payment of premium.
The policyowner can call our Customer Service Hotline or send a written to our Policy Administration Team with signature identical to the one in our record for re-issuing relevant documents. Once the application is approved, the relevant documents will be sent by mail to the policyowner’s correspondence address in our record.
