Question: How many different quotes should you get for life insurance before you settle on something? And how do you choose a life insurance company?

Response :

Buying life insurance is not a one-off transaction. Life insurance will be there to take care of you when you are down with illness or become disabled. It will be there to take care of your loved ones when you are no longer around.

All insurers are regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). Capital reserved requirements are the same for all company.

What matters most is your financial planner. Your financial planner must have your best interest at heart. You should look for a financial planner who has good understanding of your objectives, preferences and financial situation. The financial planner should also be able to give you good advice with regards to your financial situation.
