Understanding CPF Insurance Schemes

I am speaking at a seminar next month regarding the various CPF insurance schemes available for CPF members.

Are you confused by the various CPF insurance schemes that you invariably enrolled in if you contribute to CPF? Do you know what options you have for these schemes? How does one utilise his/her CPF to obtain better coverage?

The talk would be useful in helping attendees understand various CPF insurance schemes such as DPS, Medishield, as well as Eldershield which is pertinent for people above 40, or individuals with parents above 40 who are financially dependent on them.

There is currently an early-bird discount until 1st May 2013.

He blogs about personal finance and ethics of the financial advisory industry at SethWee.com. His articles have since been published in Yahoo Singapore’s finance section and he has been on Mediacorp’s television segments speaking on personal finance.

Chian Jianwei is an independent financial advisor rep with a passion for helping individuals achieve their financial goals. He adopts a no-nonsense and systematic approach to financial planning and does not shy away from tough subjects when providing professional advice. Jianwei joined the financial advisory industry in 2011, following a 7 years career in the public service, in which he was heavily involved i n policy works. He credited much of his systematic approach to financial planning to his early days training in policy works. He is an Associate Financial PlannerCM.
