Nomination is the process of naming a person in your policy certificate. It is a right given to the policy owner to choose someone to receive or manage the money disbursed by the insurance company in the event of your demise.
Policy owner is encouraged to put their spouse (wife/husband), children or parents as their nominees.
Why do you have to nominate?

- Ensure that policy moneys are distributed faster without delay.
What happens when there is no nomination?
If you do not make a nomination, your insurance company is not obligated to release the policy money until your loved ones obtain a Grand of Probate or Letter of Administration or Distribution Order, which is time-consuming.
