I received an email from a reader, B, and he has agreed for it to be published in the hope of getting more ideas from other readers here:

Dear AK,

Thanks for your ever inspiring and encouraging blog posts for our daily living.

I would like to seek your advice (or what would you do if you were in my shoes) on some insurance matters.

As a background, I am a 27 year old working professional working for around 2+ years, just married, received my BTO flat and planning to have kids next year or the following. I owned a few income producing shares like REITS (not surprising as I am a regular reader of your blog).

I do not own a Investment linked insurance policy nor an endowment. I do have the SAF Group term insurance (Assured for $300,000) as well as the MyShield Plus (the hospitalization plan plus full rider).
