Term Life Insurance

Death is uncertain, and if the breadwinner dies prematurely, the family suffers considerable financial losses. Secure these losses with a Term Insurance plan at affordable premiums.

The risk of premature death is covered under a Term Insurance policy. If the insured dies during the policy term, the sum insured is paid to the nominee. A Term Insurance plan is, therefore, a pure protection policy. It covers you against the risk of premature death and offers coverage for a policy period ranging from 5 years to 80 years. A Term Insurance cover is inexpensive and, hence, one of the most affordable Life Insurance products available in the market. The idea behind buying Term Insurance is to provide financial protection to your loved ones in the event of your untimely demise.

​​Term Life Vs 1-year Term Life Insurance

While both 1-year and Term Insurance plans cover the risk of premature death during the policy tenure, both plans are different on various parameters. Have a look -

Coverage Tenure

The coverage tenure is one year under a 1-year term plan. However, regular term plans offer longer coverage tenures going up to 80 years. Some plans can also provide the whole life protection option.

Premiums

Premiums are different. Premiums might differ every time you renew the 1-year policy, whereas term plans have fixed premiums that never change during policy period.

Medical Underwriting

Usually, no medical underwriting is done for 1-Year Term Life Insurance plans. The same cannot be said for regular term plans.

Benefits

While you may choose to allocate your money in various investment options, nothing beats Term Insurance when it comes to securing the future of your loved ones. Here’s why:

Available at affordable prices

One of the most distinctive benefits of Term Insurance is its affordability. Compared to other Life Insurance products with a savings and bonus component added, pure Term Insurance promises a substantial lump sum coverage at affordable premiums.

Offers flexible coverage

Term plans provide the flexibility to choose the duration of coverage between 5 years - 80 years. Some insurance companies also offer longer durations to the extent of allowing you to remain covered until you turn 99 or 100 years of age.

Replaces lost income

Some Term Insurance plans offer the option to provide the sum assured monthly. This enables the family to receive financial assistance every month, replicating the family’s monthly income stream through the life assured.

Provides tax benefits*

Buying Term Insurance helps you avail the following tax benefits in India: Under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961, Term Insurance premiums are eligible for tax deduction every year. The Term plan payout one receives from the policyholder’s death is entirely exempt from tax under Section 10(10D) of the Income Tax Act 1961.

Promises financial security to your family

Think of a financial solution that promises a lump sum to your family members in the event of your death. Term plans do just that. The lump sum that your family receives on your death enables them to manage everyday expenses without making any compromises.
