Affordable — address three risk areas with one cost effective solution
Flexible — choose from $100,000 to $500,000 in Synergy protection
Do you have a mortgage? Normal debt load? Perhaps a family? And the need to protect your income? Then Synergy is designed for you. It's the kind of insurance you�ve been looking for � protection from three different risks, at an affordable price. And at a time in your life when you need it most.
A unique strategy for affordable protection
At the core of Synergy's design is a revolutionary pool of money concept.
You can buy from $100,000 to $500,000 of Synergy, called your Synergy amount of insurance.
The amount of insurance you buy creates a pool of money called your available amount of insurance.
Whenever a benefit is paid, your available amount of insurance reduces by that amount.
Offers protection until your available amount of insurance is reduced to zero, or at age 65, whichever is first.
You can access your available amount of insurance three ways
1 Your disability benefit
2 Your critical illness benefit
3 Your life insurance benefit
Your monthly disability benefit amount is the lesser of
1) 0.5% of your Synergy amount of insurance, and
2) the available amount of insurance
Your covered condition benefit amount is the lesser of
1) 25% of the Synergy amount of insurance, and
2) the available amount of insurance (less any Recovery Benefits)
Your early Intervention Benefit is 6.25% of the Synergy amount of insurance
-Can be paid more than once but not in connection with a covered condition claim
-First Early Intervention Benefit does not reduce future benefit amounts payable
Your life insurance death benefit is 100% of your available amount of insurance
The pool of money concept provides different benefits than owning three separate insurance products. But that's the point.
By using the pool of money approach, Synergy provides solid insurance protection across three risk areas - at an affordable price, helping you protect your income, without costing too much of it.

Insurance protection into the future
Synergy expires at age 65.

You can purchase a Manulife permanent life insurance product if you have an available amount of insurance remaining when your Synergy solution ends at age 65 - no medical underwriting required.*
The amount of permanent insurance you can purchase - without medical underwriting - is limited to your remaining available amount of insurance and Manulife's minimum limits for the product you choose.
* This option is not available if you have received a critical illness covered condition benefit.
