Your New Year’s Resolutions
1. Review Your Insurance Policy
For example, if you originally insured your home for RM100,000 but after making several upgrades over a decade coupled with rising of building materials, you’ll realize it will now cost RM200,000 to rebuild your house. Therefore you will need to increase the Sum Insured of your house policy.
2. Know What Your Policies Covers
To be better prepared when an event occurs, take the time to check the details of your insurance contract. Don’t just set the policies aside in a drawer without looking at the details and understand how the benefits works.
3. Get a Long-Term PA & Medical Coverage
Is your existing policy only covers up to aged 65? What happens if accidents happens or you get sick after your retirement age? Look for insurance plans where their age limits is higher eg up to 100 years old so that you are still protected even during your golden years.
4. Educate Yourself
Are you confident in making Financial decision? If not, why not take a little time to learn more about financial & insurance concepts to help you make better decision.
