As uncertainties are on the rise during the Coronavirus pandemic, the need for adequate life insurance which ensures a family's financial safety has become more pressing. Term insurance plans are designed to alleviate financial distress caused to the family after the sudden loss of the bread earner. Edelweiss Tokio Life - Simply Protect is one such term plan that caters to specific insurance needs, thus securing life.
Edelweiss Tokio Life - Simply Protect comes with four life cover variants to choose from: Basic life cover, Life cover with inbuilt Accidental Death Benefit, Life cover with inbuilt Waiver of Future Premiums on accidental total and permanent disability, and Life cover with inbuilt Waiver of Future Premiums on critical illness. These inbuilt benefit options make this plan all-inclusive.
This plan has three different premium paying term options to choose from: limited pay, regular pay, and one-time pay. Limited pay premium option allows paying premiums for a shorter period to avoid liability in post-retirement years. With regular pay option, one can continue to pay premiums for a longer duration in regular installments. One-time pay enables one to pay off the entire life insurance premium in a single go. One can stay protected up to 80 years of age with the term plan.
When it comes to the pay-out of the sum assured, a lump sum payment may not be the best option for financial dependents. They would need a regular monthly income in order to meet daily expenses. Edelweiss Tokio Life - Simply Protect offers an Income Benefit option that provides the nominee 1% of the sum assured every month for 130 months, after the policyholder's demise. This enables the family to receive a steady income for many years.
The plan offers a discount for a large sum assured. This discount is calculated based on the sum assured, policy term and premium paying term.
