Term insurance is a life insurance plan offered by an insurance company that provides comprehensive financial coverage against premiums paid for a limited period to the beneficiary of the policy; this coverage, provided under term insurance plans, is paid as death benefit upon the demise of the insured during the policy term.
What is Term Insurance?
Term insurance is a life insurance policy that provides financial coverage to the beneficiary of the policy if the life insured dies during the active term of the policy. A term insurance plan provides life insurance cover against the fixed premium paid for specified "term" of the year. A term plan not only offers financial security to your family but also is capable of fulfilling its future needs such as your child’s higher education, child’s marriage, etc. Among all the life insurance products, Term life insurance offers the highest life coverage for the minimum premiums during the term of the policy. Some Insurance Companies also cover permanent or partial disability wherein the policyholder’s regular income is disrupted. Note: In case of survival of the life insured the coverage at the earlier rate of premiums is not guaranteed after the expiry of the term insurance policy. The buyer has to either obtain extended coverage with different payment conditions or forgo the coverage entirely.
