How can I apply for policy surrender?
Being an insurer who cares, we'd like to alert you of the financial implications resulting from the termination of your policy. For example, you may lose significant benefits that you have accumulated over the years once you let your policy terminate. Apart from the potential financial implications, the incontestable period, waiting period and suicide clause may have to be re-counted, even if you 'continue' your policy with another insurer.
Depending on the nature of your policies, there are various options that you could take depending on the type of policy you have. You have many options other than cancelling your policy to meet your own personal needs. For example, you can reduce your cover, change your premium payment, take a policy loan, cash your reversionary bonus, convert to paid-up and take a premium holiday, etc.
We advise you to contact your financial consultant for assisting you to submit your request, should you ultimately decide to surrender your policy. Alternatively, you could visit our Customer Service Centre for request submission. Another option is to send a completed Application For Change In Policy / Withdrawal Form, signed by the policyowner, together with a copy of ID or Passport (if no ID) to us for processing.
