Aviva Credit Suraksha Plan


The Aviva Credit Suraksha Plan is a group insurance plan that is aimed at providing financial security to family members of the scheme members. The groups are unorganized in nature like affinity groups. The aviva life plan offers an economical way of offering risk cover for scheme members (along with optional spouse cover). The life cover is either flat or equal to the bank account balance of members. The master policyholder (usually a bank or a micro finance institution) can use the scheme as a means to cover outstanding or original loan amount lent to group members. This scheme provides death cover on a group basis and does not offer surrender or maturity benefits.
