Savings insurance

The flexible, tax-advantageous private pension provision

If you want to enjoy your retirement without financial worries, you should start saving today. With savings insurance, you accumulate your private funds under Pillar 3 and pay less in tax. Provide yourself and your family with additional protection thanks to premium exemption and a pension for loss of earnings.

Your benefits

  • Saving under Pillar 3 with attractive tax advantages
  • Assumption of premiums by Generali in the event of your incapacity to work

Making provision for the time after your retirement

PERFORMA savings insurance enables you to benefit from the tax privileges under Pillar 3 to build up private funds for your retirement. Generali financial experts will invest your money in first-class funds, so you enjoy better potential returns than with traditional savings. If your financial situation changes during the term of the contract, you have the option of taking a premium break or withdrawing your saved funds at preferential conditions for the purposes of home ownership.


Additional risk cover

PERFORMA savings insurance offers you more than just savings: the integrated premium exemption ensures that you can achieve your savings objective even in the event of incapacity to work or impairment of basic faculties. In this case, Generali will continue to pay your premiums after the waiting period expires. To protect yourself more fully against the financial consequences of incapacity to work, you can also choose to include further risk protection in the form of an incapacity to work pension: in the event of loss of earnings due to an accident or illness, Generali will provide you with a regular income in the amount of the agreed pension, enabling you and your family to maintain your usual standard of living.

If you become disabled due to illness or an accident, we will grant you a quarterly annuity after the agreed waiting period. The amount is payable in arrears and is based on the extent of the loss of earnings. If required, an annuity may be insured for the event of illness only (without accident risk) at a more affordable premium.

If you become occupationally disabled, the insured sum will be paid after a waiting period of six months. In the event of partial incapacity to work, a proportionate sum will be paid.

If the insured person dies as a result of an accident (or road accident), the agreed capital sum will be paid in addition to the main insurance benefits.

In the event of the death of the insured person (e.g. the premium payer) we take over the payment of premiums.
