Frequently Asked Questions

What is accidental cover in a term insurance plan?

Accidental death cover provides you financial help if you meet with any unfortunate accident during the policy term. Death caused by any kind of accident is usually covered by term insurance. For instance, if the person gets involved in some kind of road accident that leads to an abrupt death then the insurance

company will give full financial compensation to the nominee of the policyholder. However, there are some restrictions to the plans as well.

For example, if the person in question died of causes other than natural death like while driving they were under the influence of alcohol or if it was a hit and run chase then the person’s claim to the plan will be revoked.
