This plan applies the wakalah (agency) concept, where all Certificate Holders appoint AmMetLife Takaful as a wakeel (agent) to act on their behalf to invest and manage the Participant Investment Fund (“PIF”) and Participants Risk Fund (“PRF”). AmMetLife Takaful is entitled to a wakalah fee for managing and investing the funds.
This plan applies the tabarru’ concept, where all certificate holders agree to donate a specified portion from the PIF into the PRF for the purpose of mutual aid and assistance to all certificate holders in times of misfortune.
This is an interest-free loan from AmMetLife Takaful in the event that the PRF is in deficit. The loan will be paid from the future surplus arising from the PRF.
The main difference is that, with a takaful based investment-linked plan, the allocated contribution for investment purposes is invested in Shariah-approved funds. In addition, the plan enables you to benefit from the net surplus (if any) that is available in the PRF by crediting additional unit(s) into the PIF.
AmMetLife Takaful allocates a portion of the contribution to purchase units in the investment-linked fund that you have chosen. Any unallocated amount (wakalah fee) will be used to pay commissions to agents/financial advisers and other expenses of AmMetLife Takaful.
Your takaful certificate will continue to be in force as long as the value of invested units in the PIF is sufficient to be deducted for the basic plan tabarru’ and other charges. In case it is not, the takaful certificate will lapse after 30) days of grace period.
- A wakalah fee (unallocated amount) is charged to your contributions before the remaining amount is allocated into your PIF. This amount is used to pay our expenses and direct distribution cost, including the commission payable to agent.

- Tabarru’ (Donations) – depends on your age, gender, health and occupation. The tabarru’ will be deducted monthly by cancelling the appropriate number of units of investment in the PIF and it increases as you get older.
- Monthly Service Fee of RM12 per month will be deducted from the units in your PIF.
- The fund management fee is based on the proportion of equities and fixed income of the unit funds. It is subject to the following range:

Note: The imposed fees and charges may change from time to time with a three months’ notice.

Pre-existing illness and conditions means any medical conditions, which have been diagnosed or have required medical treatment prior to the commencement date of this takaful coverage, regardless of whether treatment was actually received.

Once a certificate has a unit balance going to zero for all funds, a grace period of thirty (30) days is given to the Certificate Holder to pay the contribution or top up the certificate. In case the grace period ends, the certificate will lapse. The Certificate Holder is allowed to reinstate the certificate and is subjected to the normal reinstatement rules and procedures applicable at that time.
