2. What will my insurance policy cover?
3. How much insurance coverage do I need?

5. What happens if I fail to make the required premium payments?
6. How do I make a claim?
7. Should I replace an existing insurance policy?

Your Financial Consultant can assist you to make the right decision but bear in mind that they cannot make and it is dangerous for them to make the decision for you.

4. How much will I be paying for the premiums and will I be able to afford the premiums over long term?

The coverage that you decide on will determine the amount of premiums payable. You have to understand the current benefits on the basic policy and decide whether you are adding a rider to it. Some riders provides you with benefits like for example, your future premiums will be waived if an unfortunately event occurs and your policy will still be in force. These types of riders are useful to be attached to an insurance savings plan. Check with your Financial Consultant on the types of riders available that they can offer you.
However, if your policy does not have this benefit and it is difficult to continue owning your insurance, discuss with your Financial Consultant on available options for you to consider and cater to your needs.
