A BRIGHTER FUTURE TOGETHER
Nothing satisfies us more than knowing that we have played a pivotal role in helping you manage your financial future. Our journey with you continues throughout your lifetime and that of your future generation. Our relationship with you is built on a platform of mutual trust and respect. To strengthen that trust, we have listed some important points here for you to remember and which could help you make the right decision.
Free Look Period
The free look period starts from the date you receive your new policy document.
If you decide to cancel your policy, you have 15 days from the date you first received the policy document to do so. Please write to the company to confirm your intention to cancel the policy.
The policy cannot be cancelled after the free look period.
Terminating Your Policy To Purchase A New Policy
You tend to lose out when you lapse or surrender an existing policy, even if it is to replace it with another (by the same or a different insurer) because of the following reasons:
The new policy usually comes with a higher premium because it is based on your current age.
You may need to pay an extra premium or may even be denied insurance if there are changes to your health profile.
In most medical and critical illness policies, the waiting period (the duration when no claim is payable) resumes from the policy issue date or reinstatement date, whichever is later.
Instead of replacing your policy, we advise you to meet your financial objectives by upgrading your insurance coverage. Exercise your right to keep your financial objectives on track and be wary of undue influence from any party to terminate your existing policy.
For your convenience, we recommend that you sign up for electronic payment facilities that are currently available.
You may also make payment by cheque or cash at any of our service centers nationwide. Mail-in cheques are also accepted.
If you make payment through your AIA Life Planner, you should insist on an official receipt issued by the Company. Please contact us if you do not receive the official receipt within 10 working days from the payment date.
