St. Peter Life Plan: Is it Worth the Investment?

July 29, 2015

Five years ago my mother decided to invest in a memorial plan for her and my father. She bought  two Life Plan with Money Back worth almost 100,000pesos each and payable for five years. Just last month, my mom announced that she’s done paying for the plans and now she’s investing with the memorial lot.

 

Why am I sharing this information to you?

You know, I am very proud and very thankful of the parents that God blessed me to have. Both my parents are hard-working and goal-oriented. They were very courageous in this memorial investment plan with St. Peter for they don’t want us (me and my siblings) to worry about the future.  


When I heard that they just finished paying for the St. Peter Plan, I was so encouraged to invest with one. I know that it sounds so morbid and you might be wondering why a 21-year old like me will bother investing in a memorial plan. So let me tell you more about St. Peter Plan and the reasons why I believe it is  worth the investment.

About St. Peter

St. Peter is a pre-need deathcare company that focuses in offering traditional memorial plan. You may identify St. Peter with its endorser, Kuya Kim. They have branches nationwide and also affiliate agents if you want to be a member. Since my parents are already finished with the plan they can actually become St. Peter Plan agents and start earning commission, I just have no idea whether they’ll do that .

About St. Peter Traditional Life Plans and Money Back Plans

St. Peter Traditional Life Plans are known also as memorial service package. They are transferable, assignable and available at easy installment payments. Each St. Peter Life Plan also has value-added insurance coverage. You can click HERE for more information.

My parents availed the lowest plan in the St. Peter Life Plans with Money Back called St. Francis. It has the same description as the Traditional Life Plans but this time an amount equivalent to 20% of the Contract Price based on the annual mode of payment of the Planholder will be returned at the end of the 11th or the 16th year (depends on type of plan) from the date of effectivity  until the end of the 15th or 20th year (again depends on type of plan). You can click HERE for more information.

About St. Peter Life Plan Benefits

Below are the benefits that the St. Peter Life Plan my parents invested with offers:

  • A wood casket, split lid cover, full glass with elegant interiors, imported covers and other details/

  • Memorial Service according to life plan you invested this includes flowers, four days use of chapels and nine days service at home.

 

  • Cash Assistance Benefit

 

  • Waiver of Installment

 

  • Accidental Death and Dismemberment Benefit

 

  • Money Back subject to the conditions of the Life Plan Contract

 

Three Reasons Why I am Convinced to Invest in a Life Plan too

1. Death is a part of life

I shared in a personal blog post before about my fear of death. Slowly, I am becoming better in handling this fear of mine. It is important to acknowledge that death is part of life and we will all have to reach that final point in life.

It is so expensive to die and if you fail to have an emergency fund, the family you left behind will be the one to suffer. I believe that it is better to be prepared than regret afterwards. Since I still have lower responsibilities (thanks to my super responsible parents), paying for a memorial plan is highly doable.

2. It is transferable

This, I believe is one of the top reasons why my parents decided to invest in St. Peter Life Plan. The plan holder can transfer the plan to another living person. One life plan can be used by another family member making it an ideal investment for the family.

3. It is an investment after all

Getting a life plan is an investment you are making for your future. Since you will only be paying it for five years, the investment is super sulit. Just imagine how fast that five years could be. You can also hav the money back guarantee but still have your memorial coverage.

If ever I seal the deal with my memorial investment this coming August, I will finish my contract at 26 and wait for 10 years for my money back. That time I will only be 36 years old. I can also decide to sell my life plan to others for a higher price.

Overall

As I mentioned in the beginning of the post, I am not affiliated or anything to St. Peter. I just feel like sharing my opinion about their Life Plans and maybe encouraged others to prepare also for the future. Remember we can either die young or live too long. 

Is St. Peter Life Plan worth the investment?

My answer is a big, resounding YES.

Hope you like this post. If ever I pursue with my goal this August I will surely walk you through step by step process of application and other important details.

  7. Sa inyo ko nga ata unang nakita yung tungkol po sa St. Peter. Ok na din na napupunta sa life plan yung 550pesos mo kasiya sa bsyo or coffee etc. At least mapapanatag ka at ang future family mo. 🙂

    Thank you Ms. Grace!!! Your blog is amazing as always!

  8. Hi Ms. Jill!!! Sorry po for the late reply.

    St. Peter po kasi is transferable kaya pwede niyo po siya ibenta sa mas malaking halaga (as long as tapos niyo na po siya bayaran).

    Para naman po sa Money Back. Ito po yung explanation:

    St. Peter Life Plans
    with “Return of Premium”
    Ibabalik ang Binayad
    Amount equivalent to 20% of the Contract Price based on annual mode of payment shall be returned to the Planholder each year beginning at the end of 16th year from date of effectivity until the end of the 20th year while you are living.
    For EXAMPLE
    Si Juan Dela Cruz ay pumirma ng ST. JOHN life plan with contract price of Php 110,000.00 at ang monthly installment ay Php 2,090.00 Nung October 7, 2013. After 16 years ibabalik ng St. Peter ang 20% ng Php 110,000.00 sa:
    October 7, 2029 – Ang St. Peter Life Plan ay ibibigay kay Juan ang 20% ng Php 110,000.00 = Php 22,000.00
    October 7, 2030 – Ang St. Peter Life Plan ay ibibigay kay Juan ang 20% ng Php 110,000.00 = Php 22,000.00
    October 7, 2031 – Ang St. Peter Life Plan ay ibibigay kay Juan ang 20% ng Php 110,000.00 = Php 22,000.00
    October 7, 2032 – Ang St. Peter Life Plan ay ibibigay kay Juan ang 20% ng Php 110,000.00 = Php 22,000.00
    October 7, 2033 – Ang St. Peter Life Plan ay ibibigay kay Juan ang 20% ng Php 110,000.00 = Php 22,000.00

    After receiving the Return of Premium, the Memorial Services, in effect, becomes FREE.
