I've done applications multiple times with Singlife and this is what I can share about their digital underwriting
If you don't have much health issues, application can be completed within 20min and instantly!
A) If you are without health conditions, follow the application steps and your coverage can be offered instantaneous.
There is no need for a processing time lag by most insurer's underwriting department.

For most conditions, Singlife's system can give you an instantaneously answer.
Premium rate guide for a plan with life+TPD+CI coverage
The table reflects the Singlife plan premium rates with a quick glance.
You may notice that as the sum assured gets larger, the premium gets comparatively cheaper.

How to start?
Look for the whatsapp button at end of post below. I will get in touch with you personally for an online advised-based application.
If you want an analysis on how much coverage you may need, we should do a preliminary discussion.
There are NO HIDDEN COSTS.
What are the steps for the application that I will go through with you.
STEP 1: Starting the application
I'd need personal information from you.
Once it is done, I will complete the basic information portion and send you an email with a SingLife link to do ONLY the health questionnaires
STEP 2: Completing questionnaire for underwriting of the application
The underwriting is dynamic and you will be guided to fill in any past health conditions. Above is a snapshot of the process.
An underwriting outcome is offered once you have completed the health questions.
For situations with loading as mentioned above, the outcome will be made known to you immediately.
This is unlike applications with most other insurers. This saves you the agony of waiting for weeks to know what premium you will be offered.
Moreover, I've seen cases for pre-existing conditions of ovarian cyst and epilepsy offered without any loading.
I have an eye injury and my own application did not have exclusions
STEP 3: Getting a result on application
To complete the application, accept the proposed coverage amount and duration.
Even if application is non-standard and needs more evidence, you will be notified instantly.

There's more from Singlife Term plan! : Guaranteed insurability option
You can increase your sum assured (if you want in future) at life stage events without the need for further medical information. The life stage events are
a. Life assured entering marriage
b. The birth of the life assured’s child
c. Life assured’s legal adoption of a child
d. An increase to the life assured’s mortgage by more than 20% and by the reason of a house move or undertaking major home improvement.
I've uploaded my own policy's exact wordings of the terms and conditions and it can be found here.
Quick points from the Guaranteed insurability option
The increase of the sum assured per event is limited to the lower of SGD 250,000 or 25% of the sum assured. This option must be exercised within six (6) months of the event and you must provide the relevant documents to us should we require them.
To benefit from this option, the following conditions must be met:
- the Life Assured is below age fifty (50) at the time of your request; and
- the Life Assured had been underwritten and accepted as a standard risk; and
- all premiums are paid to date; and
- aggregated prior increases under this option do not exceed 100% of the original sum assured or SGD 500,000, whichever is lower.
Usual questions: Are CI definitions the same as other insurers?
Yes: same definition as the other insurers in the market.
Similar cap for Angioplasty & Other Invasive Treatment for Coronary Artery which is 10% of the selected sum assured of the supplementary benefit (maximum amount of $25,000).
