Thread: Any Ceiling for contribution of CPF OA?

  1. #16


    FYI, DBS SGD borrowing cost between 1.3-1.4%. Too much cash at DBS/POSB bank

    year est 10-12 yrs time.

    It is so much cheaper than my lady friend who bought a term policy (insured S$1m up to age 99 ) from prudential &
    premium paid is S$9k / yr.

    I bought CI term insurance ($431/yr - protection $171k) for both of my sons from prudential.
    Good sharing cbsh38584.

    If you are cash rich, you can also overfund the UL policy which is what I did. Critical (break even) for me was yr 6th. I'm also banking on appreciation/ strength of USD. Back then it was in the $1.2s

    I also bought your friend's policy, believe it's pruterm vantage? The return is approx 3x of total premium paid. My assumption is though it's 'term', I'm unlikely to live that long.

    Nett return >10% if the interest rate continue to be low . If the borrowing cost >2.5%. He will
    reduce the SGD loan.
    Tokio Marine today is not the same as TM of yesteryears (Asia Insurance) ask your friend to continue to monitor closely their yearly declared bonus. Just a gentle advice....and I also have policies with them.

    This is for Universal Life. Say you put premium of 350k for coverage of 1 mil. So you borrow 350k and in the event in f death, payout will be 1 mil minus 350k = 650k. Interest slightly above 1% for US$ borrowing. You just need to pay interest. Say 1.2% of 350k = 4.2k.
    You can then borrow 250k to buy US$ bond paying say 4%. Net payout = 4% minus 1.2% = 2.8% of 250k = 7k. Use the 7k to pay off the interest on the Universal Life.
    You need to know what to do when interest rate goes north.... That's all...

    In life, just plan worst case scenario and be prepared....
