If one would need or want to get a Critical Illness / Life Insurance with a limited budget, I would highly recommend getting Sun LifeAssure instead. Sun LifeAssure is by far, the most affordable Critical Illness / Life Insurance in the market today.

What’s the best part of this plan?

The best part of Sun LifeAssure is that it’s very affordable. Minimum coverage starts at P500,000. And for that insurance, Annual premium starts at P4,190 per year.

For a P1Million insurance policy, that’s less than P10k/year or just around P28/day.

But don’t take my word for it. This plan is affordable on the onset but it increases every 5 years. So it’s light on the budget and that makes it best for starters.

Here’s the starting premium (payment) depending on the age.

Here’s how the increase in premium every 5 year looks like. (based on a 30 yo, male, Non Smoker, P1Million insurance coverage)

Sun LifeAssure is available for issue to clients between 18 and 60 years old. It renews automatically every 5 years and provides coverage until age 70.

Available to local residents only. Not applicable for OFWs.

Coverage starts at 500,000 and can go as high as P8 Million.
