Have you heard that technological advancement will disrupt the financial advisory industry? We can now buy property without a property agent through an app. How about getting a Selfcheck on your insurance needs online? Now it is possible with a new digital “adviser” on DIYInsurance.
Insurance is a tricky maze where most people are confused on what they actually need. Who can we trust to give us the most unemotional advise without any sales talk or hard selling? Feeling pressured to buy any insurance is not the way to go. We have the right to really think about what we need without any hard selling.
With a digital “adviser”, all the hard selling, and the pressure to buy are all gone. We can now assess our own insurance needs at the comfort of our homes, making decisions with a clear mind without any distractions.
How Selfcheck works?
I’ve tried out this selfcheck and I would say I’m quite impressed at how easy it is to use and the quality of the recommendations which are given. I don’t even need to spend 1 hour of my time to listen to sales talk. All it takes is just 5-10 mins to key in my personal data and then the system calculates my insurance needs and recommends the best insurance plan comparing various companies in the market. If you did not know, DIYInsurance is also an insurance comparison web portal.
I tried to key in my details and got some results which I’m quite happy about. Here’s how simple it is to do a selfcheck and the results which I got:
First, they will ask for some personal details such as your name, date of birth and annual income
After which, there will be some questions on assessing our financial needs and health.
Thirdly, will be some basic questions on our employment status and expectations
And lastly, the results are generated out
For my protection needs, the digital adviser recommended 4 main insurance:
- Critical Illness
- Disability Income
As what I understand from them, the commission rebates are not just for 1 year, they are for as long as the insurer pays them (usually 3-6 years along). This is really a good initiative from them to pass cost savings to their clients.
DIYInsurance is MAS licensed since 2003 and is a trusted place to be insured. I’ve personally interacted with their staff before and know that they really want to serve people well. Try out the new selfcheck digital adviser and see for yourself the new era of financial advisory.
