Dear Mr Tan,
I would really like to seek your comments regarding a single premium whole life policy introduced to me after realizing that my endowment and whole life policies were not worth keeping. A financial adviser recommended me a 25 year whole life plan to replace my existing policies and I asked for a 'single premium' quote on the same plan. Attached is a copy of the BI. May I seek your advice if this policy is acceptable because I’m very confused
It is usually a bad idea to switch from one policy to another, as you have to incur the upfront cost again, and this will give good commission to the insurance agent. Generally, I would advice people not to make such a switch, unless there are clear advantages of doing so.
If you are not able to trust the agent who is making the recommendation to you, you should not buy the new policy from the agent.
I am not able to study your case in detail. If you wish to get advice, you can contact FISCA. They will get a volunteer to asssit you to understand the benefit illustration but you have to pay an admin fee of $50. You can contact FISCA at www.fisca.sg
