Important terms and conditions of the product
Loss (other than the loss of life) shall be deemed to be Total and Irrecoverable Loss of Use.
If the Participant is left-handed, the percentage of the various disabilities of the right hand and left hand will be transposed.
"Total and Permanent Disability" means that if the disability, as a result of sustaining personal injuries by reason of an accident, has occurred:
a) before the attainment of age 15, the Participant at such date of disability and at anytime thereafter, needs constant care and attention and is confined due to the accident to his/her home under medical supervision or in a hospital or similar institution. Such disability must be permanent and must last for a minimum period of six consecutive months; or
b) on or after the attainment of age 15, the Participant at such date of disability and at anytime thereafter, comes completely unable to engage in any occupation and to perform any work for remuneration or profit.
Where the injury is not specified the Takaful Operator will adopt a percentage of disablement which in its opinion is not inconsistent with the provisions of the above Scale of Benefits.
Double Indemnity: The Scale of Benefits, in lieu of being payable above will be doubled in the event that the Participant shall sustain bodily injury effected directly and independently of all other causes by a sudden, unintentional, unexpected, unusual and specific event that occurs at an identifiable time and place, which shall result in any of the specified losses within 12 months of the accident occurring:
a) while the Participant is travelling in any public busses, taxis, trains and monorails over an established land route; or
b) while the Participant is in an elevator car (excluding elevators in mines and construction sites); or
c) in consequence of the fire of a burning theatre, hotel or other public building in which the Participant shall be at the commencement of the fire.
