Dear Mr. Tan
I bought a Pru-link Assurance Account policy with sum assured of $120,000, crisis cover (critical illness) of $60,000, and a disability provider of just $6,000. I pay a yearly premium $3,800.
The policy started in Jan 1999 and the current surrender value is just $20,170/-
I would like to know what I should do with this policy since it is not excatly making good money. The surrender policy is much lesser than the total premiums paid to date which the policy is coming close to its 10th year.
You can ask the insurance company to give you a projection for the next 5 years, say up to the 15th year, based on 5% and 7% gross investment yield, and deducting the charges. You may get a better idea about whether to continue or stop the policy.
