ICICI Pru Life Guard- Single Premium
This variant of Life Guard policy is a single premium plan with an aim to provide financial assistance in case of death of the insured person.
What does it do?
The Life Guard policy offers three variants, that can be picked as per needs. This is the third variant that pays sum assured to the nominee on death of the insured person. There are no maturity or surrender benefits. This plan does not offer any riders.
Premiums qualify for taxation benefits.
This plan is not suitable for anyone who needs coverage higher than Rs 10 lakh.
Those having the need for lesser insurance protection, up to Rs 10 lakh, may consider this plan.
The maximum sum assured is capped at Rs 10 lakh, which is a very low coverage. Single premium plan may prove to be expensive as compared to regular premium payment option as you lock-in a large amount for a fixed cover. The reason we say this is because in case something goes wrong in early years of the policy, you have already paid a huge amount as premium to the insurance company. This would also block a lump sum for long years which can be otherwise utilized to generate returns elsewhere. A plain term policy provides most cost-efficient insurance cover.
