How to Make a Nomination?

Why is it important to nominate a beneficiary?
It is important to ensure that your loved ones will receive the benefit as intended by you and that the monies payable under the policy (and related campaign, if any) can be paid out by PAMB without any delay. Without a nomination, the contract benefits will be paid out to your lawful executor or administrator to distribute it in accordance to the applicable laws of distribution. The process will take a while.

It is important for you to inform the beneficiary about the insurance benefits and nomination.

Who can I nominate as the beneficiary for my Insurance Certificate?
The person you can nominate is limited to your parent, sibling, spouse, child, grandparent, and grandchild. The beneficiary must be at least 18 years old and above. 

How can I nominate a beneficiary for my Insurance Certificate?
You can nominate your Beneficiary via ‘Update Beneficiary’ in ‘PRUServices’ in the Pulse by Prudential mobile application after sign-up.
