Objective

This is an offline insurance policy that pays sum assured to the family members in case of unfortunate demise of the insured member.


What does it do?

A term plan that pays Sum Assured in case of inopportune death of the life insured. There is no maturity or surrender value. USP of the plan lies in where the company proposes to reduce the premiums of existing policies in case the product undergoes re- pricing and premiums of the plan decrease at anytime in future however, it will not increase the premiums in case of an upward price change during re-pricing.


Pros

Premium rates will reduce for existing policyholders in case the rates are revised downward, and remain unchanged in case of a hike.
High sum assured policies can avail lower premium rates.
The policy offers coverage for longer tenure of 35 years.
One can add riders for wider coverage. A lapsed policy can be reinstated within 3 years. Premiums paid toward the policy qualify for tax benefits.


Cons

Riders can be attached only at the time of purchase.


Suited for

Those who prefer agent’s assistance in buying a policy can take this policy.


Our View

Term plans are the best kind of life insurance available. If you cannot buy a policy without agent’s assistance, you may take this policy. However, if you are comfortable with online purchases, look for online policies as they have lower premium rates. You can avail riders for a marginal increase in premium and enhance the scope of coverage.
