Selling your Insurance Policy
Having an insurance policy (e.g. Endowment / Whole-Life) is a long-term commitment and usually early termination involves high costs and the surrender value payable may be lesser than the total premiums paid. However, due to certain unforeseen circumstances, policy owner may not be able to continue with the policy.
In such instances, their options are usually:
• Taking up a loan with interests
• Stop paying premiums and go into Automatic Premium Loan (APL)
• Lapsing the policy
• Surrendering the policy
Many of them are not aware that their policy can be sold. Just like selling cars or HDB flats, the ownership can be legally transferred. This transfer of policy ownership will be done at the respective Insurers’ Customer Service Centre where the insurance company will register and process the Assignment.
By selling your policies to REPs, we will be able to pay you a higher value than surrendering. Contact us for a Free Valuation to check how much your policy can fetch you today.
There are several reasons why people will want to terminate their insurance policies (Endowment/Whole Life).
The common reasons are,
- have not been paying premiums and cash value depleting
- cashing in for better investments
- heavy commitment
- paying off debts
- in need of cash
- policy restructuring
- do not wish to pay any policy loan
- splitting of assets
- reaching “break-even” point (cash value = premiums paid)
If you are considering to terminate or giving up your insurance policy, do you know that the policy ownership is transferable?
In the same way that you do not need to sell your flat back to HDB or your car back to the manufacturer, you have other options besides surrendering your insurance policies, like endowment savings policy back to the insurance company or letting it lapse.
Your insurance policies, like endowment or whole life policies can be transferred and sold.
By selling, you will be able to obtain more money back compared to surrendering to the insurance company.
After selling the policy, your obligations to the policy ends here.
