Insurance Portfolio Summary

Firstly, one of the most important things to do is to have a complete understanding of your existing insurance portfolio. Through this process, it allows us to understand the coverage that we have, any financial gap, as well as to find out whether we are overpaying for our insurance policies.

Key Reasons Why:

Why Every Client needs an Insurance Policy Summary

How much insurance coverage should You have?

As a general rule,

10% to 20% of your annual income on healthcare insurance and life insurance

Basic Life Cover = 10 times your annual income = $300k

Critical Illness Coverage = 5 times your annual income = $150k

Possible Things to look into

In your case, the total premium outlay is within justification for the coverage that you have. However, I noticed that your critical illness coverage of $400k is only till age 65. With this in mind, you may wish to review on what happens after age 65.

As for your personal accident policy, you may also wish to evaluate on the cost-benefit.

Insurance Nomination

In addition to your insurance policies, ensure that you have completed an insurance nomination for each policy. Generally, we will use Form 4 for Revocable Nomination. Through this process, it ensures that the payout reaches the right party.

On top of that, I noticed that you have a direct insurance policy. Accordingly, more work is required, e.g. to brief your next-of-kin on what to do should something happen. Typically, you may wish to consolidate all these documents into a file so that it is readily accessible by your family:

This way, everything will be well-organised.

On the whole, things look fine on the surface. This is when we will need to understand you in further detail. What's more, we need to know your goals and how you intend to plan for the long-term. Thereafter, we can have a detailed evaluation on whether we need to do anything further for your portfolio.
