Can people be declined of the personal accident insurance based on his/her occupation?

I work as a construction worker and I have been involved in numerous minor accidents and not what I am getting old, I am afraid that something worse might happen so I'm planning to get myself a personal accident insurance. Do insurance companies decline people with occupations that have a high risk of injury like mine?

    No Name

    Sad to say that people with hazardous occupations or people with occupations that are prone to accidents are declined by the insurance companies. Examples of these occupations are construction workers, fire fighters, police, military, divers pilots, aire crews, ship breakers, ship crew, and more alike.

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

    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.
