NTUC INCOME

The insurance provider has launched Snack, Singapore's first bite-sized, stackable insurance that seamlessly integrates into daily lifestyle activities.

It allows the insured to gradually build or stack his insurance coverage by paying micro-premiums at either $0.30, $0.50 or $0.70 and accumulate micro-policies that offer a specified sum assured that corresponds with the premiums paid.

The insured can decide when and how frequently premiums are paid by linking them to preferred lifestyle triggers, such as ordering a meal, exercising or simply taking public transport.

Each micro-policy, which is issued when a micro-premium is paid, covers the insured for 360 days.

The person stays protected by insurance coverage that has been accumulated over time even when he stops using his lifestyle triggers or if the weekly cap is reached.

Currently, Snack partners EZ-Link, Fitbit and Burpple to enable the insured to accumulate Term Life, Critical Illness and Personal Accident insurance coverage on the Snack mobile app.
