Why do women always have the last word


Today, women live longer than men everywhere in the world. According to a 2018 World Health Statistics report by the World Health Organisation (WHO), Singaporean women can expect to live up to 85 years. That’s four years longer than the average male lifespan of 80.8 years!

So, why do women live longer?

Some say it’s due to behavioural reasons like the fact that women smoke less. Others attribute it to medical advances leading to a decline in infectious diseases which disproportionately affected women.

Finally, a gender gap in women’s favour. Or not. While longer lives are great, they also mean women have more work to do to prepare for those extra years.

How Can You #PlanLikeAWoman For Those Extra Years?

GREAT Life Advantage is a flexible premium plan that allows you to increase coverage at different stages of your life. It even offers you protection for life, with no medical assessment needed.

Coverage for your policy is automatic and no further action is required from you.

The above is for general information only. It is not a contract of insurance. The precise terms and conditions of these insurance plans are specified in the policy contract.
As buying a life insurance policy is a long-term commitment, an early termination of the policy usually involves high costs and the surrender value, if any, that is payable to you may be zero or less than the total premiums paid. It is usually detrimental to replace an accident and health plan with a new one. A penalty may be imposed for early plan termination and the new plan may cost more, or have less benefits at the same cost.
