Can a baby that is blind get an insurance?

One of my uncle's son was discovered to be blind. After observing for quite some time, we noticed that he is not looking at us directly and was not responding every time we play with him. Even though he is still young, we are planning to get an insurancee for him that will help his parents with the financial costs of his special needs.

    Being blind is a disability and that is why the government is granting them a lot of benefits. Since there are some tests that will do to babies to check if they really are visually impaired, it will cost a lot. But since insurance covers it, there is nothing to worry about. Even though the insurance is not specifically due to blindness, there is nothing to worry about because the medical insurance part will cover it.

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.

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.

UOB's debt consolidation plan is an effective yet expensive alternative to other plans

UOB's debt consolidation plan is best viewed as an expensive alternative to other plans because the bank advertises interest rates that are higher than those of its competitors. Borrowers that have not previously used UOB's services are however eligible for slightly better rates but it is unclear what rates these borrowers will receive in due to the vague wording on the UOB's website

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

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.
