Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a Unit Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP)?

Unit Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP) is a type of insurance plan that combines investment and protection.

One portion of your premium is invested in stocks, bonds and other financial instruments so that your money grows based on the market’s performance. The remaining amount is invested in life insurance that will provide financial protection to your family

A unit-linked pension plan (or a market-linked pension plan) works in two phases :

a. Accumulation Phase - This period includes the time when you pay premiums to accumulate money. The regular contribution (premium) you make is invested by your insurance company on your behalf.

b. Reaping Phase - One-third of the corpus is paid to the policyholder while the remaining is invested in an annuity scheme.

At the end of the second phase, the investments, along with the benefits from the scheme are paid to you at regular intervals.”
