ICICI Pru iCare II
This is a pure term plan that aims at providing an adequate life cover to help family members cope up with financial distress in the unfortunate event of death of policyholder.
What does it do?
This policy provides two options:
Option I: It will pay death benefit equal to Sum Assured chosen by policyholder.
Option II: There is a provision for an additional death benefit equal to Sum Assured chosen by policyholder or Rs.50 lakhs, whichever is lower, payable only in case of death due to accident. This option is available only with the Regular Pay option.
It also provides an option to be covered against accidental death.
Accidental death benefit does not cover accidental disability.
The policy can be taken by anyone who can access the internet and make online payments.
