Vivocash is a regular premium whole life endowment plan that allows you to save and grow your money up to 100 years old while contributing for only a limited number of years. There are four options for limited premium terms at 5, 10, 15 and 20 years.
Here is how this plan works. You commit to saving a certain amount regularly, say for 15 years. After that, you do not need to make any further contributions, but your money continues to grow in the plan. At the end of the 5th year, a yearly cashback will be payable. This cashback consists of a guaranteed and non-guaranteed portion. You can choose to receive the annual income or to reinvest in the plan at the prevailing rate and withdraw only when needed. The cashback continues until age 100, and there are special cash benefits payable at the end of the 20th and 30th year and upon maturity.
