Unlike the other similar plans, theAviva Group TermInsurance’s unique featureis that they have adopted a concept of Short Term Plans and the One Year Renewable Group Term Assurance (OYRGTA). The name is suggestive of the plan’s characteristics. The former is a plan with a short policy term of 1 to 11 months. In contrast, the OYRGTA is so much more like the other similar products in the market with a renewable one-year policy term.  The Aviva Group Term Life’s primary aim is to compensate the family for the financial loss suffered due to the member’s untimely death, and ensure that the protection comes with meagre formalities regarding enrollment and continued group membership. 

Eligibility Criteria for Aviva Group Term Insurance Plan

The primary eligibility factor is that the employee is a permanent corporate employee on their regular payroll. As per rules, the employee continues to be a group member enjoying the life-risk cover as long as one is the company’s employment.

Salient Features of Aviva Group Term Plan

The Aviva Group Term is a feature-rich, cost-effective policy designed for discerning corporate houses with wide-ranging applicability and coverage. Group term plans provide two types of coverage to the members. One is a flat coverage, where the sum assured is uniform for all members across the board, regardless of their status. The other is graded, where the sum assured is dependent on the member’s rank, age, salary scale. It necessarily means that the employees get a higher coverage as they climb up the corporate hierarchy. This is the primary reason why the employer customizes group plans to widen the employee’s horizon.

  • The Aviva Group TermLife insurance is a single policy, called the master policy, covering all the group members.
  • In the EE group case, the employer is the master policyholder responsible for creating the membership register, its maintenance, premium payment, and liaison with Aviva Life. 
  • Thus, the master policyholder is empowered with special privileges to manage the policy.
  • In other groups, the master policyholder is the entity that is not in the group for solely buying the plan.
  • The Aviva Group Termoffers two types of cover – Short Term and the OYRGTA.
  • The OYRGTA scheme offers two options based on the death benefit disbursement procedure.
  • No pre-membership medical test is required for coverage up to the Free Cover Limit. 

Benefits of Aviva Group Term Insurance Policy

The Aviva Group TermLife insurance benefits are in many shades, depending on the plan’s nature.  Some of the key components of the benefits accrued to the group members are:

  1. Death Benefit:

    It becomes payable only upon the member’s untimely demise. The different situations for the benefit disbursement are:

    • Short Term: The nominee receives only the basic death cover, and the cover terminates upon payment.
    • OYRGTA: There are two options under this scheme. 
      • Option A: It is a pure term cover where the nominee receives the lump-sum death sum assured upon the member’s death, and the cover terminates. 
      • Option B: It is a pure term cover along with an inbuilt accelerated Terminal Benefit clause. The nominee receives the lump-sum death sum assured upon the member’s demise. However, if the member is diagnosed with a terminal illness, the member is entitled to 50% of the sum assured, subject to a maximum of Rs.1 crore. The residual benefit is disbursed to the nominee after the member’s demise.
  2. Maturity Benefit:

    The Aviva Group TermLife insurance does not provide survival or maturity benefit.

  3. Surrender Benefit:

    The master policyholder is entitled to surrender both the Short Term and the OYRGTA plans. However, Aviva Life can offer individual members a cover till the policy term’s expiry.

  4. Additional Benefits:

    This benefit is available to OYRGTA members on a voluntary basis against an additional premium. 

    • Spouse Cover: The primary member can choose the cover only under Option A, to get a lump-sum death benefit payable to either. The cover for the surviving member will continue till the policy term ends. 
    • Voluntary Cover: The member enhances the coverage, over and above the usual provided in the scheme. It is subject to underwriting policy accorded with board approval.
  5. Tax Benefits: 

    Life insurance products are governed by the GOI’s extant tax laws under various sections of the Income Tax Act, 1961. 

The Process to Purchase Aviva Group Term Insurance

The Aviva Group TermLife insurance can be purchased by adopting several methods. The common and traditional are purchased through an agent or visit the nearest brick and mortar office. The other available method to the master policyholder is to engage a broker to finalize a beneficial deal. The online purchase digital platform is a popular method in the present times for its manifold advantages. The millennial generation especially prefers it for its seamless navigation and 24/7 availability. However, every plan is not for online sale at the official insurer portal. It is convenient for the Aviva Group TermLife insurance policyholder to seek the company expert’s assistance by soliciting online. The essential inputs are the contact person’s name, mail ID, phone number, pin code, and authorize the company representative’s call before submitting the request.
