I got to know about traded endowment policies as a form of high interest savings and came across PolicyWoke Pte Ltd. Sent them a message a Facebook and they responded to me immediately to arrange for an online meeting to clear my doubts.
I saw how resale endowment policies could give me much higher interest as compared to SSB, fixed deposits and regular bank account rates. What I like about them is their transparency - the actual benefit illustration table from the insurance company is published on their website and this gives you a 100% clear idea of what you are really buying. Most websites I have visited don’t include the actual illustration at all. If I had any doubts, they were reachable almost immediately via WhatsApp. They don’t sugarcoat things and really take time to answer all my questions and there is no hard selling.
Their expertise and explanation helped me decide to get a policy from them that meets my needs. The entire transaction was completed within 4 working days. I highly recommend them! Feel free to ask me any questions about my experience
If you decide to buy-over a traded endowment policy, the following is the basic procedural flow in steps:
Click on the PolicyWoke Assignment-out Form for you to read and decide if you agree to the terms.
If you agree to the terms stated in the PolicyWoke Assignment-out Form, text us your email address, full name and home address so that we can prepare and email you an invoice for you to make payment to our business bank account.
Once we have received payment, we will schedule and book an appointment with the insurer to meet at their customer service centre.
On appointment day outside the customer service centre, we will show you the hard-copy of the same PolicyWoke Assignment-out Form for you to confirm that the terms are the same as the soft-copy one.
After confirmation in step 4), we will proceed to enter the customer service centre to do the absolute assignment of the policy.
