Bajaj Allianz iSecure Loan Insurance Plan
This policy aims to insure against the liability of a home loan, in case the borrower dies during the loan repayment tenure.
The sum assured chosen at the beginning of the tenure will decrease each year as the outstanding loan gets repaid.
What does it do?
The policy allows you to choose a sum assured and policy term depending on the loan amount and tenure. You can also choose the interest rate suitable to you in the range of 5 and 20 per cent.
This takes away the loan repayment burden from the dependents of the insured, in case of policyholder’s untimely death.
The plan is available as both, individual and joint life cover. A joint life policy will pay the death benefit on death of each insured life.
In case of the first policyholder's death, the policy will pay the death benefit and continue to cover the surviving life at a reduced premium. The reduction in premium will depend on the age, gender, remaining policy term and sum assured.
This is a simple policy for those looking to cover the liability of a home loan.
There is a premium discount on policies with sum assured of Rs 5 lakh and more.
Policies purchased online get additional 5 per cent premium discount.
Premium payment frequency can be changed at any policy anniversary.
Premiums can be paid in advance and avail a discount. The discount rates are declared for each financial year.
The policy does not factor-in changes in interest rates, which affect home loans taken on floating rates.
This policy is designed to suit borrowers looking to protect dependents from the liability of loan repayment.
A home loan insurance cover is convenient and desired. However, the policyholder is allowed to fix the interest rate and tenure while taking the policy. The policy is unable to address the need for changing interest rates that home loans are exposed to.
