What's the best insurance for me?
That’s a great question! To get a better sense, give our Analyse tool a whirl. It helps you find the best possible insurance plan to meet your individual needs.
The quotation that my financial advisor gave me and the one I saw on GetAssured are different. Is the data on GetAssured accurate?
There are a few possibilities for this:
1) Time Lag
Both you and your advisor might have generated the quotation at different times, resulting in the differences due to the age calculation. The age calculation is affected by your Date of Birth (DOB) and the date on which the quotation is generated. For example, if your DOB is 6th June 1980 and you generate your quotation on 4th June 2017, your age would be 36 years old. However, if you schedule an appointment with the advisor a few days later and he/she generate the quotation on 10th June, your age would be 37 years old. Different ages have different premium amount.
Alternatively, it could also have been because of the time needed to process and update the information on our site.
2) Different Coverage
Your advisor may have noted that you are undercovered in certain areas after conducting a financial needs analysis with you, and added supplementary riders that result in the premium difference.
3) Estimated Figures Only
All quotations listed on GetAssured are purely estimates, with the assumption that an individual is of good health without any past or pre-existing medical conditions nor do they possess any conditions which are considered high risk to an insurer, depending on that insurer’s underwriting guidelines. As part and parcel of the medical underwriting, an individual might have to undergo a medical examination to determine their health condition. Should you have any past or pre-existing medical conditions, your premium would most likely be different from what is shown on our website.
The insurer might also have an ongoing promotion that is not reflected on the site, and the financial advisor will be able to advise you on the correct premium amount. A promotion discount on top of our commission rebates, isn’t that a steal!
If you are still unclear, please feel free to ask your financial advisor to explain it in further details to you.
