Life is uncertain and losing the bread-winner of the family can leave the family in a major financial crisis. A term life insurance promises financial security in the bread-winner’s absence and helps the family cope at least with the financial loss.
Unfortunately, there are many causes which can interrupt their financial wellbeing, and that’s why most term insurance plans give you the option of built-in covers, some free and some to be opted. However, it all makes sense in times of need. Read on to find more about the kind of built-in covers available with the iSelect Smart360 Term Plan.
But first, how does a term insurance work?
The policy buyer decides the duration of the policy, the coverage amount, and add-on coverage options suited for them. Basis the selection, a premium amount for term insurance plan is calculated, influenced by factors like the applicant’s age, health, and lifestyle. This premium remains constant throughout the policy term.
The policyholder then pays this premium at regular intervals. The policyholder can also decide how they want their nominees/ family members to receive the promised amount. Once a policy benefit starts, in case of the demise of the policyholder during the policy term, the insurance company pays the promised coverage amount to the nominees named in the policy and the policy terminates.
In case of a Term Plan with Return of Premium Option, the policyholder also receives a maturity/ survival benefit at the end of the term, if they survive through the duration of the policy. Different policies may offer different benefits on survival through the policy term.
Most policies allow renewal at the end of the term. However, the premium is recalculated basis the new term and policyholder’s age, in case of policy renewal.
