Life insurance is something that everyone should have in place to protect their loved ones if the worst should happen. For expats living and working in Asia, life insurance should be as important as health insurance. With different types of life insurance available, it is good to know that professional insurance services such as Asia Health are on hand to guide you through the process of finding the perfect policy for you and your family.
Whole Life Insurance
Whole life insurance policies offer a great deal of flexibility and the policy holder can have the peace of mind of knowing that the level of financial protection is actually quite high. The way the policy works is to ensure that the holder is covered for the whole of their life and there will also be a cash value attached to the policy if it is cancelled at any point.
The policy is adaptable so there are additional benefits and features that can be applied for even more peace of mind. Benefits include serious injury cover, critical illness cover, accidental death cover, long term care needs cover, income protection for the family and accidental death as well as cover for hospitalization. The various levels of cover that are available to you through Asia Health with your whole life policy mean that you can enjoy the most comprehensive cover that is available. If the worst should happen then your family will have the right level of support.
When you choose a whole life insurance policy through Asia Health you will have the option of choosing your premium level and you can also relax knowing that if your circumstances should change you can modify the policy to suit. The idea of the policy is that it can meet your personal requirements no matter what your personal situation. You can choose how and when you pay for your whole life insurance policy and where you want the funds to be accumulated. You also get to choose the beneficiaries of your policy, so any pay-out is made directly to those you want to benefit.
Term Life Insurance
If you have been considering a life insurance policy then you will also have heard the phrase ‘term life’. This applies to a life insurance policy that simply gives a cash benefit in the event of your death or in the event you are diagnosed with a terminal illness. These plans are often designed to cover mortgage payments, death duties, outstanding bills, funeral costs and a financial buffer for those that have been left behind. It is important when buying a life insurance policy what your family will do when you are no longer here. What will they need to survive without worrying about their finances? If you are working and living abroad your health insurance policy may not give you the right cover to look after others when you have gone and your family may need funds to return to their home country.
Term life policies are normally available for anything between five years and 35 years. This will create the financial buffer zone what they need so that they can become financially independent again. You choose the length of the policy to suit your needs.
However, the difference with this type of policy is that it will only pay out if the policy holder passes away while they have the policy and there are not the same number of benefits. You can usually add on a terminal illness cover and this is normally worth the same as the term life insurance policy, so if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness you can claim immediately and get your finances in place so that your loved ones do not have to worry about this after you have gone.
When you choose a term life insurance policy, the team at Asia Health will explain to you that your premiums will remain the same for the length of the policy. This means that you can always budget for the payments without any concerns that you are suddenly going to be asked to pay out more.
