When it comes to Retirement and Endowment plans, there are a huge variety of them and they mainly comprises of Regular Limited paying premium terms. That means it takes over a certain number of years to save and to input the premiums in.

To a certain extent, Single Premium term plans seldom come to our mind.

There are a mainly 2 source of wealth to supplement for Single Premium retirement plans: Cash & SRS.

With Single Premium, the break-even is usually faster and interests compounded faster as Insurer receives the sum needed to grow for you at the very beginning (compared to a 20 years premium term, it takes well, 20 years for Insurers to receive the amount hence break-even takes longer and interests accumulates slower).

Another added bonus for you if you are using monies in SRS account is that they are tax saving.
