How can a disabled person have a savings account?

My uncle is a disabled person, he has an above average job before being a disabled person. He was recently declared disables due to an accident. He has a new job and earns an average amount. He never opened a bank account. Now he wants to open a savings account so that his money would be much safer and grow in time. Can he open one?

    All banks have a savings account. It does not matter if you are handicapped or an oridinary person. You can easily open a bank account here in Singapore, and open savings account. You just need to sumbit the requirements that they need. Most of the banks here in Singapore are recognized abroad so you do not need to worry about it.

    No esponse to email claims and poor customer care service

    HLAssurance Single Trip / HL Assurance

    Don’t bother to buy insurance from them no matter how cheap they offer it as they do not response to email claims and when one calls them for an update, one is told that it takes two months to REVIEW a claim. Well in my case one month had passed and they wrote back to me asking to prove that I travel outbound and other documents. Now my question is why they did not asked for such documents within a week of my claim submission? Please avoid this company!

    Get $300 limit on delays, $300 for missed connections and another $500 for diversions

    FWD Travel Insurance First / FWD Singapore

    The FWD policy wording doesn’t mention any sporting exclusions, with the exception of competitive sports and hiking/trekking above 3,000m. Considering that most outdoor activities are covered, their lowest tier plan (Premium) is very good value for money. For the basic plan, FWD Premium has quite a high trip cancellation claim limit of $7,500 which applies for haze-related cancellation or infectious diseases like Zika and dengue too. Where FWD loses out is in the below-average travel inconvenience benefits. For example, for travel delays, you get $300 limit on delays, another $300 for missed connections and another $500 for “diversions”. It is very hard to claim the full benefit.

    A golf advantage cover that provides coverage for damaged or lost golf equipment in your checked luggage

    Allianz Travel Protect Single Trip Gold Plan - Standard Chartered / Standard Chartered Bank Singapore

    Unfortunately, Allianz has pretty strict restrictions when it comes to sports coverage as you won't be covered for sailing, hunting, playing polo, mountaineering, skiing, rock climbing, parachuting or hang gliding. You do however, have a golf advantage cover that provides coverage for damaged or lost golf equipment that is in your checked luggage. Allianz has an efficient online claim portal allows customers to submit and file their claims online easily and if you have problems uploading your claim you can call or email them for assistance. If you are claiming for medical or dental expenses, you will still have to send original copies of your supporting documents and an acknowledgement email to the address in the table below.

    SOMPO TravelJoy Elite / Sompo Insurance Singapore

    Even as SOMPO is not cheap generally, they still try to remain competitive promotions like the generous 40% off, which makes the basic Sompo Travel Joy Vital plans affordable with just $30 for a week’s cover in Asia, and about $44 for a week in Europe and US. However, even with 40% off, be prepared to pay a premium for their GO Japan! Plan. It’ll still set you back close to $53 for a week’s coverage.
