Benefits

The ICICI Pru iProtect Smart Term Plan received the best Term Insurance provider 2017-18 by MoneyToday Financial Awards. Some of the stand-out benefits offered by the plan are:

  1. Flexible Protection Options:

    The policyholder is entitled to choose from any of the following plan variants:

    • Life: The coverage includes a death benefit, terminal illness benefit, and premium waiver in case of disability. 
    • Life Plus: The coverage includes all the above and accidental death benefit up to a maximum of Rs.2 cr.
    • Life and Health: A critical illness benefit is added, covering 34 illnesses and in addition for the coverage provided under the Life variant. 
    • All-in-One: True to its name, the coverage encompasses all that is covered under the other variants.
  2. Flexible Payout Options:

    Like the protection options, the policyholder is entitled to choose the mode of death benefit payment in the unfortunate event of demise from among the following four:

    • Lump-Sum: By far the preferred payout the sum assured is paid to the beneficiary upon the policyholder’s death during the policy term.
    • Regular Income: The death benefit is disbursed at 10% to the beneficiary for 10 years in equal monthly instalments. The beneficiary has the option to receive the first year's benefit in a lump sum. 
    • Increasing Income: The death benefit is paid in incremental monthly instalments for ten years at the rate of 10% simple interest applied per annum. 
    • Lump-Sum plus Income: The death benefit is split in a partial lump-sum payment, and the residual in monthly instalment spread over ten years.
  3. Enhanced Protection:

    It is a unique feature offered in the ICICI Pru iProtect Smart Term Plan, where the accidental death benefit coverage is enhanced based on life-stage events. The option is available only under the regular premium payment option for all the variants. The option is availed of for the following events:

    • Marriage: The original death benefit is augmented by up to 50%, subject to a maximum of Rs.50 lacs
    • Birth of 1st Child: Up to 25% of the original accidental death benefit  increases subject to a maximum of Rs.25 lacs

  4. Tax Benefits:

    All life insurance products are governed by the extant tax laws defined under the Income Tax Act, 1961. Accordingly, the premium paid for the ICICI Pru iProtect Smart Term Plan in a financial year is tax-exempt under Section 80 C. Benefit receipts are exempt likewise under Section 10 (10D). 

    “Tax benefit is subject to changes in tax laws. Standard T&C apply.”
