Universal Things You Must Consider When Buying Insurance In Singapore

According to Investopedia, insurance is a binding contract or policy in which an individual receives reimbursement or financial protection against losses.

When purchasing for an insurance policy in Singapore, look for the best-priced deal that is suitable for you because prices can vary from one company to the next. Furthermore, the policies these companies offer are different. So, beyond the price, it is important to consider other factors as well.


Determine the situation you are in then, decide what type of insurance is appropriate for you. For instance, you are flying to the other side of the world for 30 days and you are worried that you might fall sick there. Do you get a medical insurance or a travel insurance? Well, if you must know, most travel insurances cover emergency medical bills during your trip too. This is why it is important to make sure you know what you want and you know what the insurance policies entails.

Click to read some tips if you will get…

a. Car Insurance

b. Life Insurance

c. Travel Insurance


The easiest way to know if you qualify for the insurance policy is to check the age limits placed. If you do not then, you should ask the insurance company if there are flexible steps you could take if you do not meet the age criteria.

Age criteria determine the price and size of the premiums as well as the validity of your claims. Therefore, you must see to it that the policy terms can work for you and your dependents in the long run.


Before purchasing the insurance product, you need to study what the policy covers and what it does not. For instance, if you are going to buy a life insurance for your family, ask about the beneficiaries. Can you include your children and your spouse but not your parents? Again, flexibility of the policy is a factor to consider here.


You can save more money if there are additional benefits attached to the insurance policy. For instance, MSIG Insurance Singapore is offering an additional 10% discount if you purchased a Travel Insurance as a group of 6-10 persons while you will get up to 15% off as a group of 11-20 persons (Terms & Conditions apply).  Isn’t that amazing?


Waiting period is the period of time before you can receive the insurance compensations after you made your claims. For example, if your motorcycle is crashed during the lengthy waiting period, you will have to find other methods of transport until it is replaced.

While, deferment period is the period of time you cannot make a claim because the insurance company has yet to make payments. For example, you fall ill in the midst deferment period then, you will have to fork the payment yourself.

These situations highlight the essence of examining whether you are comfortable with the waiting or deferment period set by the insurance company.
