Frequently Asked Questions
Does ProtectFirst provide coverage against early stage Critical Illnesses (CI)?
Yes, ProtectFirst provides coverage against early stage CI. Upon diagnosis of any of the covered early stage CIs, 25% of the CI sum insured will be paid.

CI covered by ProtectFirst are Cancer, Heart Attack, Stroke, Liver Failure and Major Organ/Bone Marrow Transplantation.
What is the minimum premium to get started on ProtectFirst, and for how long will I be covered?
You can get started with just S$4.50/month (after 10% lifetime premium discount*) - this is regardless of your age.
ProtectFirst is a regular premium, non-participating plan which will protect you for 5 years, coverage can be renewed to cover you up to age 65.
What will happen to the premium amount and coverage after a claim is made?
Whenever a claim is made, premium will reduce.
This is because the respective benefits will either (1) cease or (2) reduce in the case of an early stage CI claim whereby remaining (reduced) sum insured is payable on advanced stage CI.
