    Put simple, term insurance is cheaper if you're planning to stay covered for the next 10 to 20 years and less than 70years in general. Whilst the whole life insurance is cheaper if you prefer coverage until 99years with limited payment term. You can opt for a mix of both the whole life and term plans, where the whole life plan covers your final expenses and/or daily expenses for you and your family in the event of untimely death or critical illnesses. Also term plans of about 10 to 20 years can come in handy if you have new-borns as extra coverage will be needed during the years when your children are growing up. In conclusion, there are no right or wrong in planning like this. How much to buy and what to buy depends on what your priorities are.

    CIMB Debt Consolidation / CIMB Bank Berhad Singapore Branch

    CIMB advertises the lowest debt consolidation plan interest rates in Singapore, with effective interest rates as low as 7%. This is a great rate for some borrowers that are actually able to secure it; however it is difficult to assess the total cost of CIMB's debt consolidation loan compared to a loan from another bank.Additionally, because POSB, DBS and Maybank are offering cashback promotions and HSBC is offering S$100 cashback and waived processing fees, CIMB's lack of promotions and 1% processing fee make it a less appealing source for debt consolidation loans. It also offers loans with shorter durations of up to 8 years than many other DCP lenders in Singapore.

    Unlike its competitors, OCBC does not charge a processing fee

    OCBC Debt Consolidation Plan / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    OCBC's debt consolidation loans charge slightly higher interest rates compared to those of other lenders in Singapore. For this reason, the bank's product is not the most affordable. On the other hand, individuals who are unable to obtain the most affordable debt consolidation loan offers could consider applying for OCBC's Debt Consolidation Plan as a backup option. Unlike its competitors, OCBC does not charge a processing fee and it does not list rates "from X%", which suggests that its rates are more transparent and accessible. Another drawback of OCBC's debt consolidation loans is that they are only offered for tenures of 3 to 8 years, which is restrictive for individuals that would prefer a longer or shorter term debt consolidation plan.
