FAQ

Can the ownership of a life insurance policy (Endowment) be transferred?

While the life assured will always remain with the policy, the ownership of the policy is transferable by Absolute Assignment – A legal transfer of all rights and full benefits from the Assignor to the Assignee.

What about insurable interest?

For life insurance policies, insurable interest is only required at the point of inception (Section 57 Insurance Act). After the policy has been in force, it can be assigned to any third party (individual or entity).

What about the Beneficiary?

For policies with irrevocable beneficiaries, the appointments have to be revoked prior to Assignment.

Why is REPs Holdings taking over the policies?

We recognize that these endowment policies are valuable saving tools that the policyowners have been servicing for years. Instead of having them terminated upon premature surrendering, they can be transferred and continue to serve as useful financial saving tools.

Is REPs Holdings licensed by The MAS?

No, as we are not an insurance company or financial adviser. We are the actual policyowner of endowment policies which are issued by insurers regulated by the MAS. Absolute assignment, the transfer of ownership, is governed by the laws of Singapore and is registered and endorsed by the insurers using standard procedures.

How will policyowners be paid?

Cashier’s order or a cheque from the insurer made to the seller (in the form of policy loan) and the remaining with cash.

What are the policyowners obligations after the transfer?

Nothing, we make it as convenient as possible for the policyowner.

Are there any referral fees for advisers?

Yes, upon successful transaction.
