Aviva LifeShield Platinum- Income Replacement

Objective

This policy ensures a monthly income for the family on unfortunate demise of breadwinner of the household.


What does it do?

As the name suggests, this policy pays death benefit as monthly payouts just like you provide for your family with monthly income. The monthly payments will continue till the end of policy term.
Monthly benefit increases by 5 per cent on each anniversary of the policy. Policyholder may surrender the policy after completing two-third of the policy tenure.


Pros

Policies with sum assured higher than Rs 1 crore can avail rebate on premiums.
Women can avail discount on premium, as they have lower mortality rate.
The policy can be surrendered.
Annual increase in monthly payouts helps meet rising expenses.


Cons

The minimum sum assured is fixed at Rs 50 lakh, which makes this policy  unsuitable for anyone with lesser needs.


Suited for

This policy is designed for salaried individuals, who run households on monthly income.


Our View

This policy is useful if your family members cannot manage a lump sum amount deftly.
Though the policy offers an increasing sum assured, such policies usually come at a higher cost as compared to simple term policies. You must assess your insurance needs before buying a policy.
