hi just wondering where you get your quotation from...
I recently met my insurance agent who introduced this savings plan to me.Its like you save a fixed sum monthly/yearly for 10 yrs and the policy continues accumalating.I checked the interest rated and found out that for the past 5 yrs it averages at 5.25%.
As most ppl dont want to become a liability to their kids i feel that it is worth looking into.
If you are interested pls PM me and i give you the agent no.(Pls do not leave no here)
I recently signed up for my elder son 22 mths and found out that if you sign up from now till 17/5 you get 20% off first year premiums.And the beat thing is i pay $309 monthly or $3553 annually for 10 yrs means i will pay up $35230.(exclude discounts)When my elder son turns 21 he gets a gurantee sum of $42,276.
For parents nowadays we would like to finesh saving as much as possible earlier so you guys should consider this plan.
I AM NOT AN AGENT JUST A CAREFUL MUMMY WHO WANTS TO SHARE THIS EXPERIENCE
Vinder, is it AIA? Cos the price very similar to what I bought
In any case, do your homework well before purchasing
We compared with different companies before we decided.
Read the fine print too
End of the day, you must be comfortable with paying for it & ensure that in event that you have another child or two and might want to stay at home to look after the kids, you can still afford the premiums.
This should be a gift to your child, not a burden
I always advice my clients to start from small and slowly build their portfolio up through yearly review. I do understand we are running against time for children education. But if we start from a big amt, it is difficult to reverse back. And if your concern like loss of job set in, with such a uncomfortable budget may cost you to lapse or terminate the policy, therefore wasting your money. Start one at a time and priortise your needs. Most impt is that you and your husband is well covered esp H&S
Hope these advice helps =)
My financial adviser had recommended me TM Asia Life educational plan, pay for 5 years, and then can adjust the tenure, for my girl, is another 14 years to go, so the effective rate of return p.a. is about 4%.
So far TM Asia had never cut their bonus, they always able to give the highest return based on their projections. (usually the policy show 2 diff columns for 2 diff projection)
I'm a financial planner from AXA. I can give you the exact figures for your kid's education saving plan.
For a $60,000 saving plan, (eg. mom is 30yrs old, child is 1 yrs old) you'll be expecting a guranteed 110% back from year 18 to 21. Premium is $275.97 per month.
Policy year 18 -- 25%
Policy year 19 -- 25%
Policy year 20 -- 25%
Policy year 21 -- 35%
At the end of 21st year, you would have drawn $66,000. Guaranteed. After that, the premium will drop to $597 per year! What's so great is that your child will still be protected for life at $60,000, which is a superb plan.
To my best knowledge, I believe TargetSaver is one of the best plans to get. It's almost like a saving + whole life.
Email me if you would like to find out exact figures for your plans, according to your age.
Recently I just bought one educational insurance from TM Asia Life. I dont't like to have long committment, in case loss job etc, so I choose to pay 5 years.
I can't recall the full details and too lazy to go dig the drawer. But think is basically I pay like about $20K for 5 years, think a about 14 years later (my girl now 5 yo), I will get back like about $150K, the return is about 4% per annum.
So far TM Asia Life has not cut bonuses, you may want to consider. Think they also have plan for monthly payment. You can contact them direct to find out more details if you interested.
i feel that baby's life insurance should always be bought before edu plans...
just my 2 cents worth of advice...
Buying life insurance while baby young is good as the premium starts low, but it protect the parents cos they get the money after the baby is gone, they dont't protect the baby. Medical insurance and education more important.
But life insurance is to protect the person who are left pp after the insured die, unless the parents are depending on the baby to feed them, otherwise, it can wait for a while. Think the insurance on parents' life more critical, cos otherwise who feed the baby if the parents are gone?
Protection definitely comes before savings in my opinion.
I'm an Independent Financial Consultant. But not before what happened to my child...
My child had real bad pneumonia, was in hospital for 3 weeks. Infact, we pleaded for the doctor to discharge us as we were really sick of staying in the hospital day and night. And it was Christmas...
She was only 2, and yes, she had the vaccine before she contracted this, but the doctor said it's a strain outside the vaccine's coverage.
Me and my wife had to take unpaid leave to stay with her.
Can you imagine the medical bills plus the income we lost ?
In my scenario, I am really glad my child can recover. I can't describe the kind of anxiety I was having when the doctor told me it could affect other organs and we have to hope for the best. The doctor recommended an operation but he brought me to a corner and asked if I am alright financially bcoz the cost will be rather substantial. Without any hesistation, I told him to do whatever he feel is necessary. I just want my child well again.
Well. She recovered. H & S bill 25k. (Kandang Kerbau Hospital). All reimbursed. What about the income we lost , 2 month without working? And the transport, tonics, and the post hospitalisation consultation ?
This is just pneumonia (bacteria infection), if it had been something much serious, do you think the H & S is enough ? What if you have to take care of your child for 10 yrs ? How about organ transplant, look into your contract. dont't take it for granted.
Its important to get the right things. There are many school of thoughts from Financial Advisors, just as doctors can give different diagnosis and medicine. No harm hearing another 1 out before you make that important committment, just as you would if you have a bad medical condition.
Most importantly, stay healthy.
what is purpose of buying insurance?
to me is medical shield + protection is important ....look at the pathetic guarantee return + SGD depreciation, i believe you can get more if you buy term and invest the rest
after getting above you can give your child a gift like buying limited premium policy
but that's just me
Is education insurance really impt? What is the minimum premium rate and what is the return like? TIA!

Education policy usually comes with high guaranteed amount and pays around 4% to 5% compounding over 20 years. dont't you agree it gives you the peace of mind rather than hoping your investment is in the right direction ?
That said, of coz, it's your call what you want to do. End of the day, this is the reason why there are so many products in the market. To cater to different need.
