Health insurance provides financial protection against medical expenses, ensuring that individuals have access to necessary healthcare services without incurring excessive costs. It helps to safeguard one's wealth by covering medical bills, hospitalization expenses, and other healthcare-related costs. By having health insurance, individuals can protect their finances and ensure that they receive the necessary medical care when needed, reducing the risk of financial strain due to unexpected healthcare expenses.

    • A.

      It is a plan that helps to protect the loss of my wealth due to children claiming it as their inheritance.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    B. It is a plan that helps to protect the loss of income due to critical illnesses.
    Explanation
    Wealth Protection plans are designed to protect individuals from the financial impact of critical illnesses. They provide coverage and financial support in case the policyholder is diagnosed with a critical illness, helping to cover medical expenses and loss of income during the treatment period. This type of plan does not specifically address the protection of wealth from children claiming it as inheritance or loss due to charity donations. Therefore, the correct answer is "It is a plan that helps to protect the loss of income due to critical illnesses."

The funds in the Special Account can be used to purchase various investment instruments such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Additionally, the Special Account provides higher interest rates compared to other CPF accounts, making it an attractive option for individuals looking to grow their savings for retirement.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    C. Funds.
    Explanation
    The statement mentions a preference for stable and diversified investments. While shares and gold can be volatile and may not provide the desired stability, funds offer the advantage of diversification by investing in a variety of assets. This helps to spread the risk and potentially provide more stable returns over time. Therefore, funds are the most suitable option for growing savings in a stable and diversified manner.

    Correct Answer
    A. 10% - 15% of my monthly income.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 10% - 15% of my monthly income. This answer suggests that the individual should save a portion of their monthly income, specifically between 10% and 15%. This is a common recommendation for personal finance, as saving a percentage of income can help individuals build an emergency fund, save for future goals, and create financial stability. By consistently setting aside this amount each month, the individual can gradually accumulate savings over time.

    Correct Answer
    D. Should seek immediate help in my personal financial planning.
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the person is living from paycheck to paycheck, which indicates a lack of financial stability. Leaving financial planning to someone else may not be the best option as it is important for individuals to take control of their own finances. Seeking immediate help in personal financial planning is the most appropriate choice to improve the person's financial situation and secure a better future.

Just as a personal secretary assists with administrative tasks and manages schedules, a financial consultant helps individuals or businesses with their financial planning, investment decisions, and other financial matters. The comparison highlights the supportive and organizational role that a financial consultant plays in managing and optimizing one's financial affairs.

    Explanation
    The term "asset rich-cash poor" refers to a situation where an individual or entity possesses a significant amount of assets, such as property, investments, or valuable possessions, but lacks sufficient liquid cash to meet immediate financial obligations or emergencies. This means that although they may have substantial wealth in terms of assets, they do not have readily available cash to address urgent financial needs and cannot easily convert their assets into cash.

    • D.

      To take up a personal bank loan to pay the credit card debt in full

    Correct Answer
    C. To pay the full amount owed for that month
    Explanation
    Paying the full amount owed for that month is the best way to manage credit card debt because it helps to avoid accumulating interest charges and additional fees. By paying the full amount, you are effectively reducing your debt and preventing it from growing further. This approach also helps to maintain a good credit score and financial stability in the long run.

    Riba is generally

    • A.

      Interest on loans

    • B.

      Interest on investments and CPF monies

    • C.

      Dividends and profits

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Interest on loans
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "interest on loans" because riba refers to the charging or paying of interest on loans in Islamic finance. It is considered forbidden or unethical in Islamic law as it is seen as exploitative and unjust. This prohibition is based on the belief that money should not generate more money on its own, but should be used for productive purposes. Therefore, riba is generally understood as interest charged on loans, making it the correct answer in this context.

Zakatable assets refer to assets that are subject to zakat, which is a form of obligatory charity in Islamic finance. Zakat is typically calculated based on the value of a person's assets, including gold jewellery, cash value of investment-linked plans, and savings balances. Therefore, the correct answer is "all of the above".
