Personal Accident

Help ease your financial burden should you be injured or disabled as a result of an accident

Accidents can happen to anyone at any time — most are minor, while some can be serious. However, even a minor accident and a trip to the emergency room can be costly. Or you might be unfortunate enough to suffer a serious injury which could cause you to lose a limb, or be permanently disabled and unable to return to work. In the event of death caused by an accident, the financial consequences for your loved ones could be devastating.

A personal accident plan provides you with a lump sum cash payout, helping you and your family cope with the financial burden should any of these unfortunate events happen. Accident plans tend to be very affordable. If you have a limited budget, it is recommended that you at least try to ensure that you and your family are covered in case of accidents.

Accidents were the number one cause of hospitalisation in Singapore in 2008*

This plan provides cash payouts to help you cope with life changes which may come about as a result of an accident. The plan insures against accidents suffered in Singapore, or overseas, and provides protection against accidental death and dismemberment, total and permanent disability, and injury requiring medical attention or hospitalisation.

Benefits

AIA PAL offers you four flexible plans to choose from. The benefits shown below represent coverage provided under the Executive plan which provides a basic Insured Amount of S$150,000 for Accidental Death, Dismemberment or Loss of Sight.

Coverage for Accidental Death, Dismemberment or Loss of Sight
In the event of an accident which results in Accidental Death, Dismemberment or Loss of Sight, the plan pays out a percentage of the S$150,000 Insured Amount, up to 150% (i.e. up to S$225,000). Payouts for accidents of this type may be doubled (i.e. up to S$450,000) if the accident occurs while you are traveling in a private vehicle, or tripled (i.e. up to S$675,000) if you are a fare-paying passenger on public transportation when the accident occurs. The percentage payable is determined by the nature of the loss suffered and a full schedule of qualifying events is detailed in the Product Summary.

If, within one year of an accident, you suffer Permanent Total Disability you will be eligible to receive a cash payout of up to S$1,500 per month for up to 100 months.

Enhance your protection with optional emergency evacuation and repatriation coverage
