Achieves a higher return for your income than in the previous two categories with a portfolio that invests in fixed and variable income and that develops over the years to obtain higher returns. Beneficiaries will not have fixed capital in this model in the event of death.

The amount of the monthly income is higher in this model because the capital sum for death decreases over the years.

Higher monthly income because the capital sum for death also decreases over the years and because it is linked to the value of portfolios. It invests mainly in fixed-income securities and develops over the years to obtain higher returns.

In the case of retirement:

When you retire, you will have to decide how and when you want to collect on your plan by contacting your branch of "la Caixa".

If you do not have entitlement to retirement (due to the fact that you have never paid social security contributions, etc.), the contingency will be deemed to have occurred after the ordinary retirement age in the General Social Security System (65 years), at the time when the participant does not work or has ceased working and is not contributing towards the retirement contingency in any social security system. However, the benefit may be paid in advance as from:

  • age 60
  • age 45, if the policy holder is disabled
 

In the case of disability:

The plan may take effect in the event of total and permanent disability for the usual occupation, or absolute and permanent for any type of work, or severe disability.

In the case of death:

In the event of death, both in the period in which the contributions are made (participant) and in the period in which benefits are received (beneficiary).

In the case of serious illness:

When it is accredited with a medical certificate from the Social Security or an approved body:

a) any physical or mental illness that temporarily incapacitates the patient for a continuous period of at least 3 months and that requires a major surgical intervention in or treatment at a hospital.

b) any physical or psychological illness or injury with permanent consequences that partially limits or totally prevents the usual occupation or activity, whether or not assistance is required from other people.

In the case of long-term unemployment:

When the participant is legally unemployed (not voluntary), provided that he or she is registered with the National Employment Institute (INEM) or the competent body and does not receive contributory benefits.

In the event of death, either during the period in which the contributions are made or in which an annuity is already being received, the accumulated balance will be paid to the spouse, children or any other person who has been named by the policy holder.

As a capital sum:

All accrued consolidated rights are paid in the form of a one-off capital sum.

As a financial income:

This consists of an income, the amount and frequency of which (monthly, quarterly, half-yearly) is decided by the customer and which is paid until the accumulated balance is exhausted. The balance outstanding or part of it may be paid at any time, in which case the subsequent annuities will not be paid until the balance advanced has been offset.

As a capital sum and financial income (mixed):

One part is collected in the form of capital and the other part in the form of financial income.

As an assured income or as an insurance:

It is possible to receive an annuity for life, for one or two lives, and with or without life insurance. Furthermore, if you wish, you can choose to take out an annuity for a certain period of time, but without capital on death.
