When we buy life insurance, we have to pay the premiums at regular intervals. The premiums that we pay get divided into 3 parts:
The mortality charges are paid to the insurance company in return for the risk they take to insurance our lives. The administrative expenses go towards paperwork, office work, etc and the remainder of the money is invested in various financial tools to reap profits. However, in a term plan, since the investment factor is absent, this chunk of money is not required. As a result, the premium is only paid for the mortality and administrative charges, making it considerably low.
Simply put, everyone needs a term plan! Since term plans are both inexpensive and useful, it makes a lot of sense to buy them. A term plan is well suited for a person who is the lone breadwinner of the family. He can buy the plan and if he dies unexpectedly, the death benefit will provide financial relief to the family. Then, term plans are also good for people who have a high net worth and need a large cover for themselves. Term life insurance is also suited for a young, single person who doesn’t have any dependent family members. So it can clearly be seen that everyone needs and benefits from term life insurance.
Nowadays, we do have a number of variations in term life insurance. They include:
Increasing term plan, where the cover increases by 5% each year
Decreasing term plan, where the cover decreases each year, till it reaches the minimum limit
Joint term plan, where along with the primary policyholder, his spouse or business partner’s life is also insured
Level term plans, where the coverage remains constant throughout the policy period
Return of premium plans, where the premium paid is returned at the end of the policy if the policyholder survives the policy period. This however is a more expensive term plan.
The company offers specific plans which are available online only. The customer only needs to log into the company’s website, choose the required plan, choose the coverage and provide the details. The premium will be determined using the filled details. The customer then needs to pay the premium online through credit card, debit card, or net banking facilities and the policy will be issued
Some plans can also be bought through the phone by making payment through the credit card or a cheque
Plans which are not available online can be purchased from agents, brokers, banks, etc. where the intermediaries help with the application process.
