What is a Personal Accident Insurance?

I was searching for different types of insurance on line and I came accross a company that offer various types of insurances. One that really caught my attention was the health and personal accident insurance. Accidents always happen and they are inevitable. Some accidents may be harmless but there are times when accidents would lead to injuries that needs medical treatment. What are the basic coverages of personal accident insurance?

    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.
