The AIA’s Guaranteed Protect Plus III feature allows you to cash your money value in the form of yearly payouts for ten years through the Income Drawdown Facility option. Unlike other plans, you may select whether you wish to use half or all of your insurance policy’s cash value. After ten years, you will be able to cancel your policy and receive a refund.

Singlife Whole Life allows policyholders to pick a multiplier term until they reach the age of 65, 70, or 75. This makes it one of the most adaptable multiplier terms available in the market. The new Singlife Whole Life will also enable the customer to select from a greater number of premium payment terms, including single premium payment terms through age 65 years.

The Early Critical Illness Rider V continues to provide pre-malignant tumor coverage as well as 4 days in the ICU payment on 20% of the Early CI basic sum assured.

AXA is the insurer that can truly rejuvenate your whole life insurance Singapore plan, since its new par fund re-pricing took effect on July 1st. The Life Treasure II offers a more competitive preposition and multiplier until age 65/70 or 80, plus choices till age 65/70 or 80. It’s a good idea to develop an exit strategy for this new competitive life plan, which fits in nicely with its already excellent maternity policy.

In the event that an individual is unable to complete 2 out of 6 Activities of Daily Living, AXA Life Treasure II allows them to collect a TPD payment. Others require only a lack of ability to do three out of six ADLs to qualify for TPD payouts, whereas AXA is the first life insurance company to offer this option.

FWD is one of the most popular insurance companies for value-for-money plans. While this company is more known for lifestyle products like travel insurance, it also provides term life insurance Singapore. Aside from basic term insurance policies that you can buy online directly, FWD also offers a bespoke term insurance policy called Future First, which can only be obtained through a financial advisor.

A family-centric term insurance policy that includes the option to add on critical illness and/or TPD riders, allows you to expand your coverage at specific times (e.g., having a child), and non-financial perks like emotional and medical assistance.
