10 Frequently Asked Questions About Term Plans


February 20, 2020

By : Bajaj Allianz Life

The top priority of every family man is the well-being of his family. Over the years, he strives hard to meet every life goal of his family. However, in his absence, there is no one to look after their financial needs. In that case, a term plan becomes essential. With a term plan, the nominees of the policyholders are protected after the demise of the policyholder. The provision of death benefit ensures their financial security in the long run.

Before purchasing term insurance plans, take a look at these frequently asked questions (FAQs) about term plans mentioned below:

Q1. What are the benefits provided by Term Insurance Plans?

The prime aim of term insurance plans is the financial security of the family members. Hence, it provides the death benefits to the nominees on the death of the policyholder. The beneficiaries can obtain the amount either in lump-sum or every month depending on the product terms and conditions.

Q2. When should I purchase a term plan?

Ideally, an individual must purchase a term insurance plan at a young age. When you buy term insurance plans early, the risks associated with your health are low. The insurance companies determine the cost of your policies based on your age and your medical condition. The younger you are, the better is your health which eventually means less premium payment.

Q3. Can I opt for online term plans?

Certain insurance companies offer online plate form to buy term plans. These online term plans are convenient, affordable and time-saving. If you’re looking forward to a hassle-free experience of buying term plans, follow the steps given below:

Log-in to the website of the insurance provider

Fill the desired proposal form

Choose the variants based on your needs

Make an online premium payment

Q4. What is the tenure of term plans?

The tenure of a term policy must ideally be selected up to the length of your total earning span. For instance, if you plan on retiring at the age of 65, opt for tenure up to that age. In case you’re looking for a whole-life coverage, choose an option which covers your entire life.

Q5. What factors determine the term plan costs?

The two most important factors that determine the costs of term plans are the sum assured and the duration of the policy. For instance, the higher the sum assured, the greater will be the insurance premium, and vice versa. Besides, the other factors that impact the costs are smoking habits and the age of the policyholder.

Q6. Do term insurance plans provide riders?

Certain insurance providers offer riders along with term insurance plans to the policyholders. Opting for riders enhances the value of your coverage. It is an additional protection layer for your long-term security. Moreover, analyse your needs before investing in riders.

Q7. Does the term insurance plan allow tax savings benefits?

Term insurance plans allow exemption of taxes. Under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961, the premium paid is deductible up to Rs. 1,50,000 on taxable income. Additionally, death benefits are tax-free, according to Section 10(10D). However, these exemptions and deductions are subject to the provisions stated in the Income Tax Act, 1961.

Q8. Can NRIs purchase term insurance plans?

An NRI can purchase a term plan by submitting all the essential documents like age proof and address proof to prove their citizenship of India. Plus, they must provide the insurer with Income proof such which include financial documents like bank statements or pay slips and medical test reports.

Q9. How should I look for the right insurance company?

Compare policies to find the one which matches your requirements. Moreover, check the claim settlement ratio of the insurer before purchasing the policy. A claim settlement ratio signifies the percentage of claims honoured by the insurance company. Hence, one of the best ways to opt for a term insurance plan from a company is by looking at their claim settlement ratio and suitability of the plans.

Q10. What happens if I survive the policy?

Since term plans don’t offer maturity benefits, a policyholder does not receive benefits if he survives the policy.

To sum up, investment in term insurance is one of the ideal way to protect your family in the long run. With the financial safety of your family intact, you can live a relaxed and worry free life. That way, you’ll be able to fulfil the life goals of your entire family with ease even in your absence.
