They call us the Sandwich Generation and rightfully so, for one in every four working adults in Singapore bears the responsibility of caring and providing for their parents and their young children. And even though you may put yourself last on the priority list, the fact remains that you also need to take care of yourself.

With age, your parents increasingly lean on you for support – both physically and emotionally. And not forgetting the growing needs of your young children. And what would you do if sudden illness hit the family?

Oftentimes, you may find yourself stretched thin – and we’re just not talking about the finances either.  

Your Children First, You First, Your Parents First – It’s possible. Find out how!

Just how do you choose when everything should be a priority?

It’s an impossible choice to make. You shouldn’t be made to choose between your children’s future and your parents’ health. But what if we told you that there’s a solution that was tailored for the needs of the Sandwich Generation?

Great Eastern’s GREAT Family Care

GREAT Family Care, is the first-ever multi-generational Critical Illness term plan that covers yourself, your children and parents. Yes, it’s possible to make everyone in your family your first priority!

Your Needs First

  • The life assured is insured against 53 critical illnesses, Death, Total and Permanent Disability and terminal illness up to age 85 

The trials of life are many and unpredictable. Unexpected catastrophe, illness or abrupt change can happen to you, whom your entire family depends on! Such events can threaten to tear your world apart, but you can protect your family from adversity.

Your Children’s Needs First

  • Every child of the life assured (including children born in the future) is automatically given coverage until 18, against 53 critical illnesses and 25 juvenile conditions

Your children always come first for you. That’s why Great Family Care protects not just you, but your precious little ones as well. 

Your Parents’ Needs First

  • Parents of the life assured will be insured with no medical assessment by adding a Parent Protect Rider that provides coverage against major cancers, Alzheimer’s disease / severe dementia and Parkinson’s disease.

The elderly are often unable to get proper coverage due to their age. But with Great Family Care’s Parent Protect Rider, your parents can get protected too.
