Nomination (Life Insurance)

How to add a nominee to your Life Insurance policy

The purpose of having nominees is to ensure that the policy benefits are paid out to your intended recipients.

If no nomination has been effected for a policy, the policy benefit would be paid to:

Trust Nomination

(This category is only applicable to non-Muslims)

The effect of enacting a trust nomination would be that the nominees named in your policy would receive the benefits as beneficiaries.

This type of nomination would be applicable to:

If your child/children (minor) are nominated, it would also be recommended to nominate a Trustee, who would in turn receive the benefits on behalf of the minor.

The nominee(s) named under this type of nomination would receive the policy benefits beneficially and not as an executor.

When a person is said to receive the policy benefits beneficially, it means that either all or percentage share as defined in when the nomination was made is payable to that individual(s).

An executor will not necessary get any of the policy benefits but is dependent upon the instructions as stated in the will or other legal documents.
