What are Traditional / Investment Plans

Traditional plans, also called Conventional Insurance Plans are plans where money is invested as per the guidelines laid down in the Insurance Act. The whereabouts of the invested premium is not known to the policyholder. The policyholder is simply promised certain benefits payable on death, maturity or as money back. Traditional Investment Plans have some of the basic features which are mentioned below:

  • These plans are issued for a longer term perspective and money cannot be withdrawn from the plans.
  • In case of stopping the premium payment, the plan becomes paid-up if at least three full years’ premiums have been paid. A paid-up plan has a reduced Sum Assured and the policyholder has a choice to either run the plan at the reduced coverage or surrender the plan.
  • The plans may be offered as participating or non-participating plans. Participating plans are entitled to participate in the company’s profits and earn bonuses which are not true for non-participating plans.
  • The plans may be issued either as Endowment Plans or Money Back Plans
