Aegon Decreasing Term Plan

Objective

This plan decreases the insurance cover by 5 per cent every year, on renewal.


What does it do?

This policy automatically reduces the sum assured by 5 per cent each year. On death, the policy pays sum assured equivalent to the amount available at the beginning of the year in which death occurs.


Pros

A reducing sum assured is useful for policyholders who have factored in  a loan liability while taking insurance. This liability reduces over time.
Also, those who see other members of the family replacing the policyholder as breadwinner can consider this policy.


Cons

The premium depends on sum assured and tenure of the policy.
There are no riders available with this plan.


Suited for

This plan is suited for those with a declining need for insurance or those who factor in a loan while calculating the sum assured.


Our View

Although this plan aims at borrowers looking to cover the loan liability, the 5 per cent reduction may or may not match the pace of loan repayment.
Moreover, the premium rates are not transparent, which goes against the benefits of this policy.
