Reliance Special Credit Guardian Plan

Objective

This is a loan protection cover with an aim to protect family members from the burden of loan repayment,  in case the insured member dies. The policy also refunds premiums if the policyholder survives to maturity.


What does it do?

This is a decreasing term cover where sum assured reduces in line with the outstanding loan. This term insurance plan covers outstanding loans of the policyholder including housing loan, personal loan, outstanding loan on credit cards etc. It helps repay loans in case of financial fallout due to death of the policyholder.

This plan can increase coverage if one chooses the available riders along with the basic plan for some extra premium. These riders can be taken at the time of purchase or added at any policy anniversary.
