What are the acceptable credit cards for online payment of premiums?

sl-chevron-down-black

We accept payment by Visa / Mastercard credit card only.

Automatic Premium Loan (APL) / Non-Forfeiture Loan (NFL)

 

If your premium is still outstanding after the grace period, an Automatic Premium Loan (APL) will be applied where your overdue premium will be paid for using your policy’s cash value. This will allow your policy to remain in force, ensuring your coverage and benefits.

 

APL is charged at a 5.5% per annum interest rate that is compounded at your policy’s anniversary. 

 

If the premiums remain unpaid, APL will continue to be applied on the overdue premiums. We recommend you redeem your APL and any accumulated interest as soon as possible to ensure your policy remains in force and retains your policy’s cash value. APL is recommended only as a short-term measure.

FAQ

How do I redeem my Automatic Premium Loan (APL)?

sl-chevron-down-black

You can contact us for an APL redemption quotation and make a partial or full payment for your APL.

Must I redeem all my outstanding APL?

sl-chevron-down-black

No, you may opt to make a partial or full payment. It is advisable to redeem your APL and accumulated interest as soon as possible as they will exhaust your policy's cash value.

What will happen if I do not pay my APL and the interest accumulated?

sl-chevron-down-black

Any outstanding APL and accumulated interest will exhaust your Policy Cash Value. Once your policy's cash value is used up, your policy will lapse and will no longer be in force. 

Reviving A Lapsed Policy (Reinstatement)

 

It is important that you make your premium payments on time. If your premium is not fully paid within the grace period, your policy will lapse unless it has a sufficient cash value to enable an Automatic Premium Loan (APL).  A notification will be sent to you when your policy has lapsed.

 

To resume the effective coverage of your policy (known as Reinstatement of the Policy):

 

 

Reinstatement is subjected to underwriting approval and further requirements, such as medical reports, may be requested as part of the review. If your health status has deteriorated, you may need to pay a higher premium based on the underwriter’s review.

 

We recommend that you pay your premiums using interbank GIRO as it would automate the premium payment process for you. To get start, submit a GIRO application.

FAQ

Can I reinstate my policy after the deadline stated in the Lapse Letter?

sl-chevron-down-black

You can request to reinstate the policy within 12 months* from the policy lapse date (the date on which the last premium due was not paid).

 

Reinstatement is subject to underwriting; all outstanding premiums^ from the lapse date and any premiums due on the reinstatement date are to be paid.

 

* Please refer to your Policy Contract provision for the reinstatement application period applicable for your policy.

^ You can contact us for a new quotation.

Attaching Riders

 

Riders represent additional benefits that can be added to your existing policy to enhance your coverage. They offer flexibility for you to customize your coverage to meet your specific needs, and can vary according to your existing plan type, term and also additional premiums.

 

Rider premiums are generally based on:

 

1
Type of Rider

The type, sum assured and terms of the rider being added

2
Occupation and age

Your occupation and age at your next birthday, based on your policy anniversary date on which the new coverage commences

3
Underwriting assessment

Assessment and approval by our underwriters

Contact us to learn which type of riders can be added to your policy.  

 

 

Assigning a Policy

 

The transfer of all rights under an insurance policy from one party (the assignor) to another (the assignee) is called assignment. You are required to notify us of these changes, although Singlife is not responsible for determining the validity of an assignment.

The most common types of assignment are:

 

Absolute Assignment (Deed of Assignment), where all rights under the policy are transferred from the assignor to the assignee without any conditions

 

Collateral Assignment, where all rights under the policy are transferred to the assignee, usually a bank, as collateral or security for a loan granted to the assignor

 

You can make an Absolute Assignment by contacting us. All parties must be over 18 years of age, of sound mind, and cannot be an undischarged bankrupt

 

You can make a Collateral Assignment by contacting us or contacting the bank or organisation that will become the assignee of the policy for security or collateral. Some banks and other institutions have their own collateral assignment procedures.

Converting to Paid-Up Policy

 

Once the policy has acquired cash value, you can choose to stop payment of future premiums by converting the policy to paid-up status. Conversion to reduced paid-up assurance means that you can continue to remain insured for the same policy term but at a reduced sum assured amount.

 

Contact us for assistance if you wish to determine your Policy's paid up value.

 

Updating Personal Contact Information

 

To help us serve you better, please notify us of any changes in your contact information, including your address, email address and phone numbers. This ensures that we can always reach you in a timely manner.

For Singlife Account, Sure Invest policy and Zurich Plans:  You can log in to Singlife Customer Portal to update mobile number, home number, and email address.

General FAQ

What does 'freelook period' mean?

sl-chevron-down-black

Freelook period is the period provided for you to review a newly issued policy and lasts for 14 days, starting from the date you receive your policy.

Anytime during this period if you’re not satisfied with the policy, you may exercise the freelook provision of your policy to cancel the policy and receive a refund. 
 

Cancelling your policy under Freelook means that the whole policy is cancelled and there is no insurance coverage. If you have gone for a medical examination for the policy, the medical cost incurred will be self-funded.

How do I exercise my freelook option?

sl-chevron-down-black

For policies within the freelook period, you can submit a policy cancellation request via the MySinglife portal.

 

  • Log in to MySinglife 
  • Select “Services” > “Policy Servicing” > “Freelook Cancellation”

How do I terminate my policy?

sl-chevron-down-black

For policies with no cash value, you can submit a termination request via the MySinglife portal.

 

  • Log in to MySinglife  
  • Select “Services” > “Policy Servicing” > “Policy Termination”

 

For policies with cash value, please click here for more information.

Will my premium be pro-rated if I terminate my policy?

sl-chevron-down-black

There is no refund for policy termination. However, you will continue to enjoy coverage for the rest of the period you have paid your premium for. The termination of your policy will be effective from the next premium due date.

How do I change my payment frequency?

sl-chevron-down-black

You can change your payment frequency via the MySinglife portal.

 

  • Log in to MySinglife 
  • Select “Services” > “Policy Servicing” > “Change Payment Frequency”

 

 

  • Log in to Singlife Customer Portal
  • Select “Policies" > “Premium Billing Details” > “Details” > “Total Payment” > “Frequency”

What do I need to take note when changing payment frequency?

sl-chevron-down-black

Changing payment frequency from higher to lower frequency

When changing the payment frequency of your policy to a longer term than previously chosen, payment of the remaining premiums will be required for the changes to take effect. This is because changing to a longer payment term will result in a period of cover where the premium has not been paid for.

 

This is applicable to the following scenario:

 

Monthly --> Annually, Semi-Annually, Quarterly

Quarterly --> Annually, Semi-Annually

Semi-Annually --> Annually

 

To successfully change to a longer payment term, simply pay the remaining premiums for the policy.

 

Changing payment frequency from lower to higher frequency

When changing the payment frequency of your policy to a shorter term than previously chosen, the change will only take effect from the next payment date onwards. This is because the last payment made for your policy was enough to cover the previously chosen period.

 

This is applicable to the following scenario:

 

Annually --> Semi-Annually, Quarterly, Monthly

Semi-Annually --> Quarterly, Monthly

Quarterly --> Monthly

 

To successfully change to a shorter payment term, simply wait until the next payment is due for your policy.

Policy Loan

 

Policy loans are available for selected plans and if the policy has accumulated cash value.  

 

You may apply for a policy loan up to the maximum percentage amount specified in your policy contract provision, less any outstanding policy debt. The loan amount will incur interest at the prevailing rate. Interest is compounded annually on your policy anniversary.

 

You may choose to repay your outstanding policy loan (inclusive of interest) by installments.

 

Apply for a Policy Loan now.

 

 

* Please refer to your Policy Contract provision for the maximum percentage of your cash value that is eligible for a Policy Loan.

 

FAQ

What are the minimum and maximum Policy Loan amounts I can request?

sl-chevron-down-black

The minimum policy loan amount is S$200. The maximum policy loan you can take is based on the maximum percentage amount specified in your policy contract provision, less any outstanding policy debt.

How quickly can I receive my policy loan amount?

sl-chevron-down-black

You can receive your policy monies within 7 working days via cheque or direct credit to your bank account. For direct credit, please provide us with a copy of your bank passbook/statement or e-statement with full name and account number clearly indicated on the same page. All other information may be blanked out.

When a Policy Matures

 

A maturity amount is payable once your policy reaches maturity. We will notify you when your policy maturity date is approaching. After this date, your policy is considered to have matured and is no longer in force.

FAQ

How will I know when my policy will mature?

sl-chevron-down-black

You can refer to your Policy Schedule for maturity date. You will also receive our notification 1 month before the maturity date.

When will I be notified of the maturity of my policy?

sl-chevron-down-black

You will be notified 1 month before the maturity date.

What is my policy's projected return at maturity?

sl-chevron-down-black

Contact us for a projected Maturity Quotation. However, this projected value assumes prevailing bonus rates remain unchanged and does not reflect any outstanding loans or other indebtedness.

Surrendering a Policy

 

Your policy that has cash value can be surrendered in exchange for its cash surrender value upon cancellation of the policy. 

 

You should consider carefully the surrendering of your policy, as it would mean the loss of protection for you and your family. Replacing your coverage, even if done immediately, might require a higher premium due to your older entry age. A new policy will also take time to build up a cash value over the years. 

 

You might want to take a policy loan instead which still allows you to enjoy your insurance coverage. 

FAQ

When can I surrender my policy?

sl-chevron-down-black

Once your policy acquires a cash value, you can surrender it at any time.

How do I know the amount of cash value acquired by my policy?

sl-chevron-down-black

Contact us for assistance in determining your policy's cash value.
