Shriram Life Term Plans

Shriram Life Insurance has four varied types of term plans where two plans are meant for groups while the remaining are for individuals. Individual term plans offer the premiums back at the time of maturity so that the amount invested is not wasted. A detailed analysis of the plans is as follows:

Shriram Life Cash Back Term Plan

A term insurance plan which promises the return of premiums paid at maturity. It is a pocket-friendly and easily accessible plan that provides financial security to you and your family. The features of the plan are as follows:

  • In case of death of the life insured during the chosen tenure of the plan, the death benefit is paid which is equal to the Sum Assured chosen by the policyholder at the time of inception of the policy
  • If the life insured survives till the end of the policy tenure and the plan comes to an end, all the premiums paid by the policyholder during the term of the plan are returned to the policyholder. Thus, on maturity, unlike pure term plans, there is a maturity benefit under the plan.
  • The death benefit payable will be higher of 10 times the annual premiums payable under the plan if the insured is aged less than 45 years or 7 times the annual premiums payable under the plan if the insured is aged 45 years and above, the chosen Sum Assured or 105% of total premiums paid whichever is the highest.
  • If the policyholder pays premiums in advance, discounts are given on the premium amount
  • Additional Riders can be availed under the plan for a more comprehensive coverage option. The company offers three types of riders under the plan which includes Accident Benefit Rider which promises the payment of an additional Sum Assured in the event of accidental death of the life insured. Moreover, the future premiums are waived off if the insured becomes totally and permanently disabled due to an accident. The Family Income Benefit rider pays 1% of the Sum Assured every month for the entire duration of the plan or 10 years whichever is later if the insured suffers total and permanent disability due to an accident. Lastly, the Critical Illness Cover Rider promises the payment of a lump sum amount if the insured is diagnosed with any of the illnesses covered under the scope of the rider during the tenure of the plan
  • Premiums can be paid either for the entire duration of the plan under the Regular Pay option or for a limited term which will be lower than the term of the plan.

Who Needs a Term Plan?

Term insurance is one of the most popular forms of life insurance simply because it provides substantial cover at a very affordable rate. Everyone from a junior clerk to a senior magistrate can afford a term plan. However, these plans are better suited to certain people than others. Read on to know more.

Who exactly needs a term plan?

If you are wondering whether or not you require a term plan, then you first need to answer a few questions. How many people are dependent on you? What are your savings? Will you be inheriting a lot of money? Does your family have any other source of income? Once you have answers to these questions, you will be able to understand whether or not you would require a term plan.

  1. I have a wife and two children. Do I need a term plan? 

    A person who has dependent family members needs a term plan. A term plan provides financial assistance to the nominees when the policyholder suddenly dies and the monthly income stops. So obviously your wife would need the money to pay for your children’s education and also to run the household.

  2. I don’t have a lot of savings. Do I need a term plan? 

    A person who doesn’t have a lot of savings most definitely needs a term plan. A person who has a lot of money saved can still hope that in his absence his family can use his savings to pay their bills, etc. However, while it is important for a person with savings to also have term insurance, for a person without savings it is mandatory.

  3. Neither does my wife nor do my parents work. Do I need a term plan?

    When there is no other source of income in the family, having a term plan is a complete must. If due to the death of the lone breadwinner, the income stops, there has to be provision for a regular inflow of funds.
