It is difficult to compare insurance policies between different companies.

And thus, we launched this table so that we can compare term life insurance policies across insurers in Singapore easily. There are large price differences between the policies.

This article was started in November 2015 and is updated monthly.



We consider the following example of a Male, Non-Smoker:

We have used the following parameters for these reasons:

S$1 million sum coverage: For those of us who are supporting our families, having S$1 million life coverage to provide for our dependents is not unthinkable. To find out how much you need, use this simple calculator.

Coverage until 70 years old: There comes a time in our life when our dependents (Eg. spouse and children) are no longer dependent on us and our existing assets and savings would be sufficient to provide for them should anything unexpected happen to us. 70 years old is a good estimate for how long we should cover ourselves with life insurance until.
