Single Premium Term Insurance Plans Explained

Term insurance plans provide life insurance coverage to the policyholder in return for a premium. Therefore, it may be assumed by some, that with term insurance, they may have to compulsorily pay a premium every year.

However, did you know that there are certain term plans that allow the payment of a premium in one go? These are called single premium term plans. Instead of paying the premium frequently throughout the tenure, a single premium plan requires the policyholder to make a lump-sum one-time payment when the plan is bought. Are you wondering if such a plan may be suitable for you? Learn more about single premium term plans below to make the right decision.


Benefits of Single Premium Term Plans


To begin with, let’s look at some common benefits you may come across in single premium term plans:

● Hassle-free term insurance

A single premium term plan may be particularly suitable for those looking to buy hassle-free term insurance coverage. All you may have to do is pay the premium once when you buy the plan. You may then stay worry-free about having to maintain the plan since the coverage of the plan continues regardless.

● Lesser chances of policy lapsing

With a single premium term insurance plan, the chances of the policy lapsing due to non-payment of the premium may get eliminated. Since there may be no need of paying regular premiums in the first place, there may be no scope for a grace period to become active or the policy to lapse. The grace period refers to the time frame the insurer may provide to pay the premium once the premium payment date has passed.

● Tax benefits

The lump-sum premium of your single premium term insurance plan may also be eligible for a tax deduction of up to Rs 1.5 lakhs as long as it may not exceed 10% of the death sum assured. Section 80C of the Income Tax Act of 1961 allows for such deductions. To be eligible for this deduction, you may have to pay tax under the old tax regime. The 10% limit may only be applicable for policies bought after 1st April 2012. For plans bought before this date, the limit may be 20% of the death sum assured.

The above condition may also be applicable to Section 10 (10D), wherein the death benefit payout of a term plan may be tax-exempted. Tax benefits are subject to changes in tax laws and terms and conditions. [1]

● Sense of assurance

Single premium term insurance is one of the plan if chosen in your portfolio, may assures that your loved ones may be financially safe even in your absence. By paying a premium once, you will be able to secure their future and assure yourself of better peace of mind.


When Should You Opt for A Single Premium Term Insurance Plan?


By now, you may know the features and benefits of a single premium term insurance plan. However, you may be wondering if and when would be the right time to buy it.

Ideally, a single premium term plan would be a suitable buy:

● If you are dealing with irregular income

Those with irregular incomes may find it a bit challenging to afford the regular premiums of a term plan, even though they may be affordable. You may have a good amount of money at the beginning of the year. However, by the time the premium payment date arrives, your salary may still be pending. Irregular income should not have to mean you go by without the coverage of term insurance. A single premium term plan may be a preferable solution here.

● If you have a busy schedule

Having a busy schedule may mean you may miss out on your premium payment. Even the grace period may go by sometimes and your policy may lapse.

With a single premium plan, this may not be the case. Simply pay the premium once and you may receive coverage for the entirety of the tenure.

● If you have a lump sum amount

Consider that you have received a substantial bonus at your workplace or have come across a large sum of money via inheritance. While there may be multiple ways you would want to spend that money, a useful option you may want to consider is a single premium term insurance plan.

The one-time premium payment may ensure a lifetime’s worth of financial security for your loved ones.

Let’s understand this better with an example:

Kavya was a well-established freelance writer earning a substantial income. Due to the nature of her freelancing job, her income tended to be irregular. However, it helped her contribute financially to her household and she wondered about the challenges her parents may face if she were no longer present.

To resolve her worries, her friend advised her to opt for a term plan. However, she was hesitant since it meant having to pay regular premiums on time. Her infrequent salary may not allow her to do that. While researching, she came across single-premium term insurance and found it a suitable option. She saved up on her salary for the next few months and bought a single premium term plan to secure the financial future of her family.




To sum it up, single premium term insurance may prove to be a suitable option for those looking to secure their family’s financial future in a hassle-free and straightforward way. It may offer the policyholder the flexibility of making a one-time payment. With its help, one may ensure that their loved ones may be taken care of financially in case of their untimely demise.
