    Actually, I'd like to tell you life insurance is a contract between an insurance policyholder and an insurer or assurer, where the insurer promises to pay a designated beneficiary a sum of money in exchange for a premium, upon the death of an insured person.

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.
