Why You Should Maximise Your CPF LIFE Before Other Private Annuity Plans?
Today, an average retiree is expected to spend $1,154 a month in retirement expenses and this is going to increase over the years. Thus, ensuring that we have a steady stream of income in our retirement becomes even more important. This is where CPF Life comes into play. CPF Life is a national life annuity scheme that guarantees lifelong monthly payouts after the age of 65 years old for Singaporeans.  With more people being aware about how to use CPF for retirement planning and even accumulating 1 million or more in their CPF accounts, CPF Life is gaining public awareness with its importance as a retirement tool. However, CPF Life is not the only source of retirement income. Private annuity plans have existed even before the introduction of CPF Life. Despite the wealth of available privat

The Cheapest Term Life Insurance in Singapore **Updated December 2020**
Life insurance coverage against death, TPD and critical illness is necessary and most people I know do not have adequate coverage. They think it is expensive to get themselves adequately covered. However, that is not the case. Adequate life insurance can be affordable, yet leave you with good cash flow to live life. First and foremost, the reason we sign up for life insurance is for protection not investments or savings. When we purchase insurance, we sought to address a particular health risk that would create monetary challenges for ourselves or our loved ones. Some of the most common challenges are: The risk that if you passed away, your loved ones will have a difficult time getting on with their lives, servicing still outstanding debts and mortgages.

OCBC share price to explode to $10.00?
Sign up & unlock articles! Those who stay invested during crises will be duly rewarded while those who didn’t would look back and rue missing the opportunities. In this context, will OCBC share price explode to $10.00 in the coming weeks? With Joe Biden being confirmed as the new President of United States, many investors expect a bull run in the stock market. In my view, it does not matter whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden becomes the next President because the result will only remove uncertainties for institutional players to return to the stock market. Post-election, investors should be looking at earning growth among companies. In this regard, OCBC share price could be poised for an upturn.

OCBC share price held ransom by Great Eastern
Sign up & unlock articles! Is it the right time and right place for OCBC share price? At Price/Book Value of 0.805, OCBC share price is trading below its book value, no thanks to the fallout from COVID-19 pandemic. Yet against the backdrop of Singapore’s Phase 3 reopening, will OCBC share price be able to ride on the coming recovery? On a quarter-to-quarter basis, Singapore’s GDP expanded by 7.9% due to the robust showing from the manufacturing sector. Being the bellwether of the economy, bank stocks are proxy to the country’s economic condition. In this regard, the coming third quarter business update will be a baptism of fire for OCBC share price as investors will be scrutinizing the performance of OCBC’s insurance subsidiary, Great Eastern.

Complete Guide To Understanding CPF’s Dependants’ Protection Scheme (DPS)
Following CPF’s announcement on 2 October 2020 regarding the revisions to the Dependants’ Protection Scheme (DPS), you may be surprised to find out that you are covered under DPS and have been doing so since you made your first CPF contribution. While Medishield Life and Careshield Life are compulsory health insurance plans that have received much public attention, most Singaporeans have not given much thought to DPS prior to the announcement. According to CPF Board, 1.9 million CPF members are covered under DPS as of the end of 2019. This means a significant number of Singaporeans are affected by the DPS changes. Here’s all you need to know about DPS and the changes that would be implemented on 1 April 2021. What Is Dependants’ Protection Scheme (DPS)? Implemented since 1989,

4 Stocks This Week (Insurance) [18 Sep 2020] Prudential; Great Eastern; UOI; SingReinsurance
Just a week ago, a huge piece news was unveiled in Singapore’s insurance space. Aviva sold its Singapore unit to homegrown digital insurer Singapore Life (Singlife) in a deal valued at $3.2 billion, which makes it the largest of its kind in Singapore, and one of the largest in South East Asia. Singlife has said that moving forward, it plans to continue expansion and seeks to list on SGX. Singlife founder and CEO told Reuters that: “Our ambition is ultimately to list in Singapore. As a publicly listed company of the future, that gives ownership of our firm into a much more broad-based community.” Singlife’s listing would be a welcome addition to the insurance and financial services sector on SGX, which has remained resilient amidst the difficult economic environment brought about by

Investment Portfolio Updates-9th August 2020
It has been a long time since I last updated my investment portfolio. The March'20 market crash was very sudden. I have remained invested mostly throughout this dark period. The major change I made was to shift out more of my more stable REITs from my CDP account into the margin account to avoid the possibility of a margin call in the event of a sucker's rally and to prepare for another potential market crash.1. Retail REITsThe retail REITs which I am holding in the margin account such as SPH REIT, Frasers Centrepoint Trust and Lendlease right now are still down by 20% to 30% from the pre-market crash. Dividends have been cut drastically also. I remain cautiously optimistic that once the COVID-19 vaccine become successfully rolled out by end of the year or early next year, the devastating

Beginners’ Guide To Understanding How Cancer Insurance Plans In Singapore Work
Cancer cases have been steadily rising over the years. According to statistics from the National Cancer Centre Singapore, one in every 4 to 5 people in Singapore may develop cancer in their lifetime. Besides having to deal with the financial cost of cancer when diagnosed with the illness, other notable expenses include regular check-ups, medications, transportation and engaging a helper at home. This comes together with the burden of not being able to work and provide income for a period of time for dependents or for self. While citizens can tap on to government subsidies, such as MediSave and MediShield, for their treatment, there are limits to such subsidies, and non-medical costs are excluded from coverage. That is why having a comprehensive private health insurance can help to soften t
