What are the key insurance policies millennials should get in Singapore?

Finance should not be a barrier to starting out in life as an independent young adult, with a range of new experiences awaiting us. With the transitions into adult life, like many Singaporeans who like to be prepared we tend to consider a range of possible eventualities in our lives and like to feel that we have an adequate safety net if things go wrong.


Life insurance becomes a vital safety net that protects our family be it our parents for the singles or our spouse and children for the married when they need it the most. It can be tailored to suit our own requirements and may include a variety of policy options.


We suggest that indiviudal consider the different type of insurance in the following order describe below. The main reason we invest in health insurance first is so that we can protect our savings and experience maximum comfort if we were to fall ill.
