Star Union Dai-ichi Pure Term Assurance Plan

Objective

This term insurance policy aims to protect family members from financial distress in the event of death of the insured member.


What does it do?

This plain term plan pays sum assured to the nominee on death of the policyholder.
Policyholders with single premium policy can surrender the policy anytime after first policy year. The surrender value will be calculated according to the prespecified formula. Single premium policies also get a maturity benefit on survival. The plan does not offer any maturity or surrender benefit to regular premium policyholders.
It also offers an optional accidental death and total and permanent disability rider to policies with regular premium payment mode. The rider pays an additional amount equal to rider sum assured in case of death due to an accident, or ten half-yearly installments, each equal to 10 per cent of the rider sum assured in the event of total and permanent disability.


Pros

There is a 3 per cent premium rebate for policies with sum assured higher than Rs 10 lakh.
The plan offers accidental death and total and permanent disability rider to enhance coverage.
A lapsed policy can be revived within 3 years.
Premium paid towards this policy is eligible for tax benefit under section 80C of Income Tax Act.


Cons

The maximum sum assured under the policy is limited to Rs 25 lakh.


Suited for

Those looking for a cover upto Rs 25 lakh can consider this policy.


Our View

The accidental death and total and permanent disability rider may be considered as it comes at a very low cost and provides wide insurance cover. Before buying any policy evaluate your needs and select regular premium payment option over single premium payment. The reason we say this is because in case something goes wrong in early years of the policy, you have already paid a huge chunk of amount as premium to the insurance company.
