What is Bajaj Allianz Term Insurance Plan?

Term insurance is a type of life insurance that covers the life of insured only for a particular term as against whole life insurance that covers a life for 100 years. The advantages with term insurance include low premiums and death benefits, which will be paid to the nominee as a lump sum or as a monthly income in case of an unexpected event of death of the insured within the policy period. One can use this insurance to cover any liabilities or mortgage loans in their absence or to accumulate savings for themselves or their loved ones.

Broadly considered, there are 2 types of term insurance plans.

  1. With Return of Premium (RoP)

    You may choose your term insurance plan with return of premium, where you will be guaranteed to receive the amount you paid as premium for the entire term, if the insured lives till the end of the policy term.

  2. Without Return of premium

    If the insured chooses a policy without return of premium, he will not be entitled to receive any benefit if he lives through the policy term.

    For example, a policy of 10 years at a premium of ₹ 10,000 per year for a sum insured of ₹ 10 lakhs, the insured would get no benefit if he is alive till the policy ends. But, if the member chooses ‘return of premium’ option at the start of the policy, he will be entitled to receive the premiums he had paid i.e., ₹ 1 lakh.

    Premium rates will be higher for return of premium option, but it would turn out to be a savings plan if the insured outlives the policy.

Why should you choose Bajaj Allianz Insurance Plan?

  • Low premiums
  • Flexibility to choose or switch between plans
  • Spouse can be enrolled too in a joint life cover
  • Wide range of policy term periods and premium payment frequencies
  • Other benefits such as permanent disability benefit, critical illness cover etc. apart from life insurance
  • Return of premium facility
  • A variety of term insurance policies tailor made to meet the needs of the insured

Features and Benefits of Bajaj Allianz Insurance Plan

  • Free look period

    A free look period of 15 days (30 days in case of policies obtained online or through distance mode) is provided for the insured to go through the policy terms and conditions, review, discuss and decide to continue the policy or terminate.

    If the policy holder decides that he does not want to continue with the policy, the premium amount paid will be refunded after deducting any taxes and proportionate premium for the number of days for which the insured was covered under the policy.

  • Level cover and Reducing cover

    When the insured is covered for the same amount throughout the policy period, it is termed as level cover.

    Alternatively, in a reducing cover insurance, the amount the insured’s life is covered decreases with every passing year. The premiums are less in case of reducing covers and are usually preferred for repayment of mortgages.

    The insured will have the choice to set the reducing cover in line with his loan repayment. For example, if a person has taken a loan of ₹ 3 lakhs at 15% annual interest, the amount to be repaid at the end of 5 years would be nearly ₹ 4.3 lakhs, at a rate of ₹ 86,000 every year. So he will opt for a reducing cover life insurance for ₹ 4.5 lakhs for a 5 year term, which goes down by ₹ 86,000 each year. This means his life will be covered for ₹ 3.64 lakhs in the 2nd year, for ₹ 2.78 lakhs in the 3rd year and so on.

  • Single, Limited or Regular premium

    You may choose to pay premium once or for a limited period of time or for as long as the duration of the policy. In limited premium payments, you pay premium for a period of 5 or 10 years and avail cover for 15 or 20 years.

    You may be paying less as a lump sum single premium. If the regular premium for 10 years at ₹ 15000 per year would amount to ₹ 1.5 lakhs in total. For a single premium you may have the option of paying only ₹ 1.1 lakhs in one go. But it will be a burden on the pocket of many and will minimize the chances to change your plan or insurer at a later date. Limited and regular premiums, depending on the duration of your term are easier on the pocket and offer more flexibility.

  • Calculation of premium

    Premium to be paid is calculated based on the age of the insured at the time of inception of the policy, total sum insured, term period of the policy and frequency of premium payment.

  • Accidental death benefit (ADB)

    Death due to an external accident within 180 days of the occurrence of the event and confirmed by autopsy.

    A bodily injury resulting in at least one permanent disability such as loss of both hands, arms, legs, feet, one hand/arm and one foot/leg, both eyes or/ and ears (total loss of vision/ hearing), paralysis of limbs etc.

    The disability must be certified by a registered medical practitioner and should exist for a continuous period of 6 months.

  • Critical illness benefit (CIB)

    A list of diseases are provided by the insurer which qualify as minor and major critical illnesses separately.

    To be considered as a critical illness, the signs and symptoms must appear for the first time after 90 days of inception of the policy and the disease should have been diagnosed for the first time.

    Standard health insurance exclusions such as a waiting period of 4 years, alcohol related diseases, congenital diseases, self-inflicted injuries, psychiatric illnesses, illness due to war like actions, flying accidents, participation in hazardous activities or a criminal activity apply for the critical illness benefit and are not covered.

  • Waiver of premium benefit (WoPB)

FAQs

  • Q: What happens if the nominee also expires?

    Ans: In case of an unlikely event of the nominee also expiring along with the insured or before he receives the claim payment, the next legal heirs of the insured will be entitled to receive the benefits.
  • Q: What happens if one person dies in a joint life cover?

    Ans: In a joint life cover, each life is covered to a certain amount and only that amount will be payable on the death of a single member. However, the premium to be paid will go down on death of one of the members and the reduced premium will be based on the age, life style category, chosen policy term and frequency of premium payments.
  • Q: Can the riders be opted for one person in the joint life?

    Ans: Yes. One or both members in the joint life cover can opt for a rider. In case of death of a single member, if the ADB rider was opted for, additional accidental death benefit for that member will be payable along the sum assured.
  • Q: What happens if I fail to pay the premium?

    Ans: If the policy holder fails to pay the premium by the end of the policy term or during the grace period, life cover for the insured gets terminated and no death benefit or cash benefit if alive, will not be payable.

    However, the policy can be revived within a certain time period called the ‘Revival period’ (usually 5 years from the due date of first unpaid premium), only after payment of certain additional charges/ penalties (such as interest).

    The grace period is a period of 30 days (15 days in case of monthly premium payers), the insurer grants the insured to pay the premium after the expiry of present policy. The policy will continue to be active with same benefits even if it is renewed during grace period. Policy will lapse if it is not renewed before the end of grace period.
  • Q: If the insured dies during the grace period, is the claim liable to be paid?

    Ans: Yes. The claim is payable minus the premium that is to be paid for the current year in case of death during grace period on the due date of premium payment.
  • Q: What is High Sum Assured Rebate?

    Ans: The insurer offers the buyer a discount on premiums to be paid, if he chooses a high sum assured. The discounts will go up as the sum assured goes up and will vary according to the age of the insured. A 30 year individual would get more discount for the same sum assured than a 50 year old. The rebates will be offered in blocks (e.g., ₹ 5-7.5 lakhs; ₹5-10 lakhs etc.). The blocks and percentages of discount vary from plan to plan.
  • Q: What is the Revival period for Bajaj Allianz Term insurance plans?

    Ans: The revival period for most policies is 5 years.
