Features of Max Life Online Term Insurance

What is a Term Plan?

Term insurance plan is a type of life insurance contract that offers to pay a lump-sum amount to the nominee (a family member nominated by the person who is insured to receive the policy benefits in case of his/her death) in case of insured dies during the policy term. Term insurance is called so because it covers the life of the insured for a limited period (or term). Term plan does not offer a maturity value if the policyholder survives through the entire duration of the policy. This is one of the reasons why term plans are affordable.

Emergencies and unfortunate events like the loss of breadwinner can push a family financially backward and put their future at risk. With a term insurance policy, the breadwinner can ensure that the family continues to receive the financial support to maintain a respectable lifestyle

Selecting best term insurance plan is a simple five step process:

Step 1: Select Your Life Insurer (or the company from whom you wish to buy life insurance)

Check the Claims Paid Percentage

Claims paid percentage of an insurance company is the ultimate proof of the moment of truth faced by the person insured. It shows the number of claims settled by the insurer in given financial year divided by total outstanding claims at the beginning of that year and reported during the year. A good claims paid percentage, is a testament to insurance company’s commitment and efficiency in managing customer’s claims.

Check Persistency Ratio

Persistency ratio indicates how satisfied current policyholders are. It is the number of customers who stay invested in their policy year after year. More satisfied policyholders will stay with the insurer for longer periods. A good persistency ratio indicates trust of customers on their insurance company and the product purchased. Max Life Insurance recorded a 13th month persistency of 81%.(As per Max Life Public Disclosures FY 17-18)

Step 2: Estimate the Sum Assured & duration of your plan

Sum assured, or the insurance cover amount, should be large enough to take care of both your family’s regular financial needs and major life goals for their entire life.

As a rule of thumb, you can opt for a sum assured anywhere between 10 to 15 times of your annual take home income.

It is advisable to take longest term possible. However, you must continue your cover for atleast your working years.

Step 3: Select the Add-on Benefits

To enhance your term insurance cover, you may add various additional benefits or riders that may come at an additional minimal cost. Such optional benefits/riders cover additional risk, are very cost effective and can be availed on payment of additional premium. The optional benefits you should add to your term life cover are:

Max Life Comprehensive Accident Benefit Rider (On payment of additional premium for rider)

Online Term Insurance FAQs

Online Term Insurance FAQs

1. How do term insurance plans work?

Term Insurance Plans is the simplest Life Insurance product and a must have for everyone. This is a pure protection plan where payout is made only in case of death, there are no maturity benefits on survival. In case of death of life insured, the nominee receives the death benefit payout.

Term Plans offers 3 advantages –

  • High life insurance cover at affordable premiums as they are the cheapest amongst all types of Life Insurance
  • Tax Benefit to the Policyholder as the premium paid is eligible for tax exemption under section 80C of Income Tax Act
  • Life Insurance claims proceeds are tax free in hands of the nominee - Death benefits are tax free under section 10(10D) of Income Tax Act, 1961.

2. What is the right age to buy a term insurance plan?

A Term plan is a pure protection plan which helps replace the income earned by the breadwinner in case of his death. It is a fact that the younger you are, cheaper the premiums. For a Rs 1 Cr term insurance cover, the monthly premium will be ~Rs 600 for a 25 year, non smoker male  vs ~Rs 1,200 for the same person at age 35. Thus, it makes sense to buy this plan as early in life as possible.

If you are in your 30's or 40's, your liabilities and dependents would have increased (parents & children). You must buy a cover now to make sure all the financial needs are met, even when you are not around.

Even if you have crossed 50 and nearing retirement, you should invest in a term plan. In case of your demise, the pensions will stop and then your spouse and dependent children will be financially vulnerable.

Thus, if protecting your family’s financial future in your absence is your prime concern, you should buy a term plan immediately, regardless of your current age. 

3. How do I decide which plan variant is best suitable for me?

Max Life gives you the choice to customize the term plan to suit your needs and choose how the insurance cover amount is paid to the family in the event of your death: 

1. Basic Life Cover - Your family gets the money as a one-time lumpsum payout that can help cover immediate liabilities

2. Basic Life Cover + Monthly Income - In addition to the lump sum payout, your family will get a regular, tax-free monthly income for the next ten years. This plan helps the family manage day-to-day household expenses like school fees, groceries etc

3. Basic Life Cover + Increasing Monthly Income - In this option, the monthly income increases by 10% each year which will keep it 'inflation proof'.  

If you feel confident that your family is financially savvy and will be able to manage future cash flows, you can opt for basic life cover. Otherwise, it is recommended to go for the income option. If you take into account the 10 year income in addition to the life cover, the effective cost per lac of payout actually comes to be cheaper than the basic life cover

4. Are riders important? Which one should I opt for?

Riders are an afforable and effective option to improve the comprehensiveness of your cover. They can be purchased only at the time of buying the term policy. Therefore it is advisable to carefully choose the riders that meet your requirements. 

Max Life offers the following rider options you can choose:

1. Max Life Waiver of Premium Plus Rider (UIN:104B029V03) - All future premiums waived in case of specified critical illness/disability/death of the policyholder.

2. Max Life Comprehensive Accident Benefit Rider (UIN -104B025V03) - Get additional protection for accident leading to dismemberment or death.

This is equal to the Sum Assured/insurance cover you would have opted while buying term insurance.To enhance this coverage and to provide for the family’s living expenses, Max Life Online Term Plan Plus  offers you an option to receive monthly payout. This payout helps family meet thier  expenses including the utility bills, groceries, school fees etc. This amount is paid out over a payout period of 10-15 years.

Advantages of Monthly Payouts

  • Customised payouts
  • Keeps inflation in check

  • Investors who are risk-averse may find it hard to manage the large lump sum money. Therefore, it is useful that you opt for monthly payouts, so that your family receives secure, sustained income every month to meet their day-to-day needs.
  • Inflation is an important factor that can have a negative impact on your life cover benefit, especially when we talk about a time in distant Rising inflation may de-value the worth of your current cover amount. Therefore, having the option to receive increasing income every month option would help your loved ones manage your daily expenses, without much hassle.

11. Why best term plan for parents

As a parent, buying term insurance plans can help create a safety net for your family and help ensure that they have a financially secure future. The plan would also help them sustain the lifestyle that you’ve provided for them, even when you are no longer there.

Riders are optional insurance add-ons that you can purchase with your term insurance on payment of additional premium. The Accidental Death Cover rider offers you an additional cover, in case of death or disability because of an accident. The Waiver of Premium Rider offers to waive off the premium, in case you are rendered unable to continue working and earn, such as in case of disability or critical illness.

Policy Tenure

Ideally, you should purchasea policy for the maximum available tenure possible, preferably throughout your working life. Choosing a long-term tenure is useful if you are purchasing the policyas a means to square off a home loan or similar liability in your absence.

12. What payout options are available in this term plan
