This rider waives off all future premiums to keep the policy in force when you are incapacitated to pay the premium owing to physical disability. Indeed, it is a useful rider that ensures your policy remains active even if you do not pay premiums. Let’s dive in to know more about this rider.

When will the rider work?

The rider is available in the following scenarios:-

  • When life insured has been in a disabled state for a minimum 6 months.

When can this rider be added/removed?

This rider can be added only at the inception of the policy. Once added, the insurer doesn’t allow its removal.

What is the cost?

For instance, for a Rs 5-lakh coverage, a 30-year old would need to pay Rs 5,232 as premium under Max Life's Life Partner Policy. If he wants to get the waiver of premium added to the insurance policy, he would need to pay Rs 100 only.
