General and healthcare expenditures increased at an average annual rate of close to 2.5%2 and 6%3 over a 5-year period from 2003 to 2008. With healthcare inflation higher than the general inflation, you will need to spend a higher percentage of your retirement income at your old age on healthcare than the general population.

With The Choices You Make Today
Retirement planning requires thoughtful consideration but it is comforting to know that there are choices you can make today to help secure income16 for your golden years.

Level Income Payout for 10, 15 or 20 Years


The Level Income Payout is based on the Guaranteed Value of your investment at the end of your Savings Period. While you are receiving income16, you will remain invested in Manulife Octave SGD Tracking Fund and benefit from potential future returns achieved by it. At the end of the Payout Period, the Policy terminates and any balance of your investment will be paid to you as a lump sum. You may also continue19 to receive the same amount of Payout beyond the Payout Period until the value of your investment is fully paid out or until you have reached age 99 (whichever is earlier). In the illustration below, Mr. Tan, age 45, signs up for ManuRetire Secure with an initial single premium investment of S$100,000. He opts for a Savings Period of up to age 65 and to receive the Level Income over 20 years until age 85.

Whatever the time frame, our flexible options put you in control of your retirement planning and you are the one who decides.
