In this comparison table, we compare all Term Life with Critical illness insurance plans in Singapore.

While a hospitalisation plan helps to cover the costs of a hospital stay, a critical illness plan provides for post-hospitalisation treatment costs and alternative treatment needs in the event of a critical illness.

A lump sum payout from a critical illness plan in your insurance coverage can also play the role of replacing your income and allow you time for recuperation.

We consider the following example:

  • Policy coverage till 65 years old
  • S$500,000 Death and Total Permanent Disability (TPD) Coverage
  • S$500,000 Critical Illness Coverage

Parameters:

S$500,000 life coverage: This amount could be used to provide for your dependents, existing loans and as a gift to your beneficiaries.

S$500,000 critical illness coverage: This amount allows you to replace loss of income in the event of a critical illness and provide for alternative treatment needs.

Coverage until 65 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. 65 years old is a good estimate for how long one should cover ourselves with life insurance until.
