    So-called “child-only” plans are health insurance policies in which no parent or guardian is covered and the policyholder is age 18 or younger ...However, the concern that parents could delay purchasing coverage for children until they got sick led some health insurance companies to stop offering child-only plans.

    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.
