Abstract

In this modern era, accidents could occur anywhere any time before prevention can be made. Life insurance could help lend a sum of money to reimburse the medical fees. But not everyone has life insurance, some people think that life insurance is a waste of money where they think people should save money at an early age and only pay when there is actual accident occur. This occurs in young adults too. Some young adults do not know the knowledge of life insurance. Therefore, this study is conducted to help young adults understand and provide the awareness of the importance of life insurance by creating a mobile application on Android Operating System using Android Studio. This system was created based on waterfall system development life cycle and evaluated using cooperative evaluation method. The mobile application can display and provide the knowledge of life insurance and calculate the suggested life insurance plan for the user. Five participants were randomly selected for cooperative evaluation. They are young adults age between 20 to 25 years old and have their own income. Out of those five participants, two of them like the mobile application while the other three participants suggested several improvements on the developed mobile application.
