Important Things about Insurance Nomination

Are you intending to buy insurance policies? If so, this is an article that you must never miss. And I want you to pay close attention to the message contained in this article. If unsure, do read it over and over again. Today, I am going to share with readers the Insurance Nomination Law promulgated by the Singapore government on 1 September 2009. I suspect many Singaporeans are not aware of this relatively new legislation. So, I hope readers will find this information useful in their wealth building journey.

  1. The main advantage of trust nomination is protection against creditors / bankruptcy proceedings. Some business people use it for their children — they have individual policies for each of the kids … New kid just add another policy & trust nomination. Cheaper alternative than setting up living trust fund.

  2. Hi Sinkie,

    That is a good point! I overlooked the part on protection against creditors.
    I guess this is the key merit of having a trust nomination for insurance policies.
    Thank you for your guidance!
