Police Welfare Fund Insurances Ltd has arranged for all members to purchase additional Life Insurance cover at very competitive rates. The low cost Life Insurance and Critical Illness cover helps protect your loved ones in the event of your death or diagnosis of a critical illness as defined under the policy.
This is a summary of cover only. Always refer to the Policy wording for full details of the cover provided.
Life Insurance Cover
Life insurance is to protect you and your family. It creates an asset when needed most - should you die or become terminally ill - providing a lump sum payment and financial security when your family needs it.
Life insurance can be used to pay off your mortgage and other debts, provide for your children’s educational needs and act as a safeguard for your family’s continued financial wellbeing.
Critical Illness Cover
A lump-sum cash payment when you need it most, to ensure that a crisis of health does not become a crisis of wealth.
Critical illness can strike anyone at any time. But these days, a critical illness no longer leads to inevitable death. This means that life cover alone - regardless of how much you may have - can be of no support during the weeks and months of convalescence and recovery.Critical Illness offers vital Financial Cover on the First Diagnosis of a defined Critical Illness.
The following critical illnesses are defined under the Critical Illness cover:
Accidental HIV Infection
Benign Tumour of the Brain or Spinal Cord
Chronic Liver Failure
Chronic Lung Disease
Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
Heart Attack (myocardial infarction)
Heart Valve Surgery
Intensive Care Treatment
Loss of Independence
Loss of Use of Limbs / Sight of One Eye
Major Head Trauma
Major Organ Transplant
Meningitis / Meningococcal Disease
Motor Neurone Disease
Open Heart Surgery
Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest
Permanent Loss of Hearing
Permanent Loss of Speech
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (Primary)
Significant Cognitive Impairment
Stroke (resulting in functional loss)
Surgery to the Aorta
Critical Illness Cover also offers other Benefits and Options
The costs of surviving a life-threatening critical illness include expensive medical treatment during and after the illness, as well as the costs of specialist care and the vital therapy and convalescence that follows. The exact costs are obviously unknown but you can be certain they will be substantial. On the first diagnosis of one of the many common conditions defined under your Critical Illness Cover, you will receive a lump-sum cash payment - the amount of cover you have selected - that you can use, as you wish, to cover the costs of your medical treatment and recovery. And then you can do whatever you like, with whatever is left, to help achieve the security and peace of mind you deserve. At that point, your Critical Illness cover ends.
A Guaranteed Funeral Benefit
If you should die suddenly during the term of the policy, and if a Critical Illness benefit is not payable, your Critical Illness Cover will provide a guaranteed funeral benefit of $5,000. The policy document contains explicit and common-sense definitions and exclusions for the stated critical illnesses. Details may be obtained from Police Welfare Fund Insurances Ltd. The standard exclusions, however, are only those you would expect: addiction to liquor or drugs, self-inflicted injuries, and injuries from war.
Your Life Insurance protection and Critical Illness Cover are valid 24 hours worldwide.
Applying for cover is as easy as completing a simple application form.

The individual policy will be subject to the same terms, conditions and premiums being offered by AIA to the general public.
