    Your agent helps you in filing for an insurance claims. In a nut shell filing an insurance claim is about having the right documentation as evidence that the insurer has to compensate you for a covered loss or policy event. Two types of claims exist, benefits and reimbursement claims.

Loans that allow borrowers to pay as little as half of their regular monthly instalments

UOB does not offer the cheapest car loans in Singapore, due to its higher than average interest rates. However, the bank can be a good source of financing for individuals that are unable to obtain less expensive loans.Additionally, UOB's HP50 car loans give borrowers added financial flexibility. This is because these loans allow borrowers to pay as little as half of their regular monthly instalments for the first 59 months of a 5-year loan. In the final month of this loan, borrowers can choose to either fully repay their loan with one final instalment, trade their current vehicle for a new car or enter a sell and lease back scheme with their dealer.

HSBC stands out as one of a few lenders that provides details regarding its interest rates

HSBC offers the lowest guaranteed flat and effective interest rates for debt consolidation loans in Singapore. Additionally, it is currently waiving its application fee for online applicants, which is normally S$88 or 1% of the loan amount. While other lenders advertise lower rates than HSBC, they use vague language such as "as low as" that indicates that borrowers may actually be offered substantially higher rates. For this reason, HSBC stands out as one of a few lenders that provides details regarding its interest rates. Additionally, it offers the lowest rates among banks that guarantee interest rates published online.

Offering material savings for those with a significant amount of debt.

POSB and DBS are offering the most significant promotional deal for debt consolidation loans. This promotion provides a cashback of 3% of the approved loan amount to borrowers. This can result in material savings, especially for those with a significant amount of debt. While the banks charges S$99 for processing fee, it is rather insignificant for applicants that receive the cashback promotion. Additionally POSB and DBS advertise flat interest rates as low as 3.98% (7.23% EIR). These rates are among the lowest available in our review of debt consolidation plans in Singapore however, they are not guaranteed.

Lowest debt consolidation plan interest rates in Singapore with effectivly low interest rates

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'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.
