2. Are there any useful resources which I can refer to?
You should consider your financial commitments (e.g. loans, family expenses and children’s educational needs) and existing insurance coverage, including insurance provided by your employer, when deciding the insurance coverage that you need. You may use the Insurance Estimator from Central Provident Fund to help you decide on the amount of coverage you need.
You should also consider whether you can afford to pay the premiums for the entire duration of the policy, taking into account your outstanding loans, regular expenses and your income over the long term. If you are unable to pay the premiums, your insurance policy will lapse (or end) and you will no longer be covered. You may use the Budget Calculator available on the MoneySENSE website to check if the premium is affordable based on your current income and expenditure.
You may also consider the different types of Direct Purchase Insurance (DPI) and other types of life policies available, and whether the life policy is suitable for your financial circumstances and needs. To do this, you may visit the compareFIRST website to understand the features and premiums of DPI and other types of life policies.
