ICICI Pru iCare II

Objective

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.


Pros

It also provides an option to be covered against accidental death.


Cons

Accidental death benefit does not cover accidental disability.


Suited for

The policy can be taken by anyone who can access the internet and make online payments.


Our View

Option I is a plain term cover which is recommended for all earning members who have financial dependents. Option II that covers for accidental death as well does not include accidental disabilities. One may go for a more comprehensive policy if willing to buy accidental cover as well.
