What is meant by disability?
Disability refers to both physiological disability and economic incapacity. Physiological disability corresponds to a decrease in the physical integrity of the Insured resulting from an accident or sickness. Economic incapacity is a reduction in the Insured person's working capacity, as a result of the physiological disability he/she is suffering from. Its degree is determined by medical decision taking into account the Insured person's profession and his/her possibilities of rehabilitation in any professional activity compatible with his/her knowledge and aptitudes.
How long can I claim pensions if I am unable to work?
Once the qualifying and waiting periods have elapsed, AXA pays the Insured, for the duration of the disability and in proportion to its degree, an annuity, the annual amount of which is set out in the specific terms and conditions.
In the event of death can I define the beneficiaries myself?
The Policyholder may designate one or more Beneficiaries when taking out the insurance policy. The beneficiaries can also be changed by rider during the life of the contract.
At the end of the cover, can I recover my capital?
SERENA is a "term insurance in the event of death" policy. Unlike life insurance, which represents a financial investment, death insurance is a provident tool to support you and help you protect your loved ones for a defined period and according to your needs. This means that the insurer guarantees a lump sum for a specified period, in return for the payment of a premium. If the insured person is still alive when the cover expires, the premiums are not recovered.
