Manulife LifeReady Plus: cruise into your golden years with financial flexibility and protection across twists and turns in life

Manulife Singapore today launched LifeReady Plus, an enhanced iteration of LifeReady – a whole life protection plan with a Health Advantage benefit. The new LifeReady Plus offers an additional layer of protection by providing policy holders the flexibility of adding on riders to protect their financial future against unexpected events and supplement retirement income1 in their later years.

Flexibility to be protected the way you want, at every life stage

LifeReady Plus is designed to ensure adequate protection for policy holders and their loved ones amidst the twists and turns of life through the following benefits:

  1. Coverage2
    Be covered against death, terminal illness and total and permanent disability, with an option to enhance your protection up to 5X

  2. Health Advantage Benefit
    Enjoy upfront premium discounts for the first 2 policy years. Continue to enjoy the discount thereafter by meeting our Health Targets2 within the first 2 policy years

  3. Upgrade Your Cover
    No medical check-up will be needed if you want to increase your coverage at these four milestones in life:
    • Graduation (Tertiary)
    • Marriage
    • First Home
    • Parenthood

  4. Critical Illness Coverage Options
    Get additional coverage with our range of critical illness riders that pay a lump sum or waive your future premiums in the event that critical illness strikes2

  5. Financial Flexibility
    • Accumulate policy cash value while enjoying coverage3
    • Option to convert the cash value from your policy into annual payouts1, over 10 years, with additional 5% interest

  6. Retrenchment Benefit2
    If you or your spouse is retrenched and unemployed for 30 days or more, 6 months of your premiums will be waived while coverage continues


Darren Thompson, Chief Product Officer, Manulife Singapore said: “Life is a journey with unexpected events along the way. Because we cannot predict the future, a little advanced planning often goes a long way. That’s why we’ve designed Manulife LifeReady Plus to help navigate the journey, even when life tries to throw you off course. We’ve also gone beyond just whole life protection by offering customers greater flexibility and enhancing the cash value of their policies, so that they are covered well into their golden years.”
