What is Sun Cover-i?
Sun Cover-i is a simple and affordable monthly renewable group family takaful term plan with surplus sharing. It provides lump sum death and total and permanent disability (TPD) benefit due to all causes. This plan is offered on a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) basis.
Sun Cover-i is managed by Sun Life Malaysia Takaful Berhad (SLMTB) Registration No. 200501012215 (689263-M), a takaful operator regulated by Bank Negara Malaysia and registered under the Islamic Financial Services Act 2013.
What is the coverage period?
Sun Cover-i provides coverage up to age 50.
What is pay-as-you-go (PAYG)?
With PAYG concept, you will enjoy the flexibility of contribution payment. Once you have enrolled in this plan, your monthly contribution will be auto-debited from your savings account, current account, or credit card account depending on your selected payment option. The monthly takaful coverage will be renewed upon successful deduction. However, if there is insufficient fund and deduction was unsuccessful, there will be no takaful coverage provided for that particular period until we are able to deduct again, only thereafter your coverage will resume.
As this is a PAYG plan, you are not required to pay for the previous months’ unpaid contribution. However, you are encouraged to ensure sufficient funds are in your account to enjoy continuous coverage without any interruption.
What will happen if I stop paying contribution?
If you do not pay the contribution before the next coverage start date, no takaful coverage will be provided and no claims will be payable on the following month in the event if death/TPD occurs.
There will be a maximum of 6 months from the coverage end date, for reactivation of the takaful coverage as shown in the latest certificate/e-certificate (in the form of email). Immediately after 6 consecutive months of non-payment of contribution, the certificate/e-certificate will be lapsed and you will be required to submit a new application*
*Note: The new application with new health declaration will be processed as a new submission with new certificate number and new coverage period.
