Here’s an update from Mr. Antonio Queja Jr. on Philippine Prudential Life Insurance Co. (PPLIC). He sent an email inquiry to PPLIC and he received a reply on July 1, 2020. Thank you very much, Mr. Queja Jr.
Reply from PPLIC:
Dear Mr. Antonio Queja, Jr.:
Pursuant to the designated Liquidator’s proposed Interim Liquidation Plan, the IC approved the selling of all the assets of PPLIC, to which the proceeds thereof will be distributed proportionately and based on the Liquidation Value of each of the policyholders and creditors’ claim against the company, as approved by the IC.
Hence, we are in the process of selling the assets of PPLIC now. The public was notified of the PPLIC’s assets to be sold in a Notice of Sale published in the Philippine Star on 26 April 2020. To date, we had not yet sold one property.
You will know the status of PPLIC by checking the website of the Insurance Commission (https://www.insurance.gov.ph). If there is no information regarding PPLIC, that means that the sale of assets and computation of the Liquidation Value has not yet been finalized and approved by the IC.
We will do our best to hasten the sale of the assets so that policyholders can be immediately paid.

These notes below were written in 2010
Since Philippine Prudential Life Insurance Company is associated with Danvil Plans, we’re going to write some information about this company. A lot of info here were taken from the website of the Insurance Commission.
Philippine Prudential is an insurance company; it is not a pre-need firm.
It is different from pre-need firm Prudential Life Plans Inc. whose license was revoked by the SEC in 2009. These two firms are not affiliated with each other.
Philippine Prudential is one of 35 life insurance firms whose licenses have been renewed by the Insurance Commission every year for the past years. Their newest licenses are for the license year 2009 to 2010.
Of the 35 life insurance firms, Philippine Prudential is:
- 17th in ranking based on premium income as of December 31, 2009
- 17th in ranking based on first-year premium as of December 31, 2009
- 22nd in ranking based on paid-up capital as of December 31, 2009
As can be seen on both the websites of Philippine Prudential and Danvil Plans and in SM malls, the two firms use the same sales offices in SM Pampanga, SM Fairview, SM North Edsa, SM Megamall and SM Southmall.
