KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 12 (Bernama) --
AmMetLife Takaful Berhad (“AmMetLife Takaful”) together with AmBank Islamic Berhad (“AmBank Islamic”) today officially launched ProtectSecure-i
Murni at a simple ceremony held at Bangunan AmBank Group in Jalan Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur. ProtectSecure-i
Murni is a Shariah compliant regular contribution family takaful plan which is designed to cater specifically for Muslim needs. It provides protection against death and Total and Permanent Disability (“TPD”), additional coverage whilst performing the hajj and umrah, with waqaf, badal hajj and funeral benefits.
This plan was introduced in September last year, and since then AmBank Islamic has managed to acquire more than 800 applications worth in excess of RM1.5 million in terms of annual contributions. With the official launch of ProtectSecure-i
Murni today, AmBank Islamic is confident of increasing the participation for this plan, especially from their existing customer base.
Present at the launch were Datuk Wira Dr. Ameer Ali Mydin, Chairman, AmMetLife Takaful, Dato’ Sulaiman Mohd Tahir, Group Chief Executive Officer, AmBank Group and Encik Azam Yusof, Chief Executive Officer, AmMetLife Takaful, Eqhwan Mokhzanee Bin Muhammad, Chief Executive Officer, AmBank Islamic and Jade Lee, Managing Director, Retail Banking, AmBank (M) Berhad. This event was also to celebrate and appreciate AmBank’s sales force for the successfully promotion of ProtectSecure-i
Murni for the past five months.
“We are indeed very pleased with the launch of ProtectSecure-i
Murni as the plan provides for the protection needs of our Muslim customers, especially those who are performing their Hajj or Umrah,” said Dato’ Sulaiman Mohd Tahir.
ProtectSecure-i Murni pays 100% of the basic sum covered plus the balance in Participant’s Investment Fund (“PIF”) in the event of death or TPD of covered person. Additionally, under this plan another 100% of the basic sum covered will be payable should death or TPD occur whilst performing Hajj or Umrah. There is also an additional RM3,000 Badal Hajj benefit, where the nominee may appoint a wakeel to perform hajj on the participant’s behalf, ensuring the deed can be done even when the participant has passed on.
Murni is designed to support Muslims in fulfilling their religious obligations by assisting Hajj or Umrah preparations with RM1,500 special allowance from individual’s PIF at the end of the third year. Certificate owners can also make withdrawals from their PIF at the end of the fifth certificate year to support any financial needs in their life.
“At AmMetLife Takaful, we are passionate about providing the best solution to meets our customers’ needs. In this case, ProtectSecure-i Murni is designed specifically for Muslim customers through all the benefits offered in the plan itself”, said Datuk Wira Dr. Ameer Ali Mydin.
An additional spiritual element embedded in this plan, is that it provides a waqaf payout of RM1,000 on person covered behalf to an approved waqaf organisation upon death or TPD. This special feature - waqaf payout, directly assists customers to prepare for their afterlife as on-going charity through a waqaf organisation.
This plan provides an additional RM5,000 lump sum upon death to cover funeral related expenses.
Murni is available for individuals from the age of 30 days to 60 years old and matures when the participant reaches 80 years. There are four plans available under ProtectSecure-i
Murni, with contributions based on the selected plan. The product is available at all AmBank Islamic Berhad branches across Malaysia.
