All our lives we work towards providing our family a secure present and future. To this effect, we take a term insurance policy to ensure that our family is taken care in case of sudden death. However, what we often fail to consider before buying the policy is how the death benefits i.e., sum assured, would be paid to our nominee(s) and the ways by which they would use it.Read more
Due to limited financial knowledge, most families fail to use the lump sum amount wisely. So even though you had the best of intentions while buying that policy, your family could still not be looked after.
To deal with this problem, insurance companies have started offering a staggered or monthly payout option. Instead of a lump sum payment, your nominee will receive 10% of the insured amount and the rest would be paid as monthly installments over the next 15-20 years.
One can select from any of the combinations available:
Part sum assured (high proportion) + monthly income: Usually, 50%-70%of the sum assured is paid to the nominee immediately after the death of the policyholder and the remaining part is paid in the form of monthly installments to support the family’s regular financial requirements.
Part sum assured + monthly income (equal proportion): In this case, the nominee gets both the sum assured and the monthly income in equal proportions.
Sum assured and monthly income increasing yearly: In this case, the monthly income increases annually by 10%-20%. It is a very useful feature as it helps dependents deal with inflation.
Here’s a look at some of the best available online term plan options in the market:-
