To enable prospective policyholders to know the premium amount payable, Bajaj Allianz has designed a premium calculator.
This calculator will present the figure the individual will have to set aside for premium payments depending on variables such as policy term, policyholder’s age, general health etc.
The premium calculator also calculates the amount to be received at the time of maturity and any additional bonus pay-outs, so the individual can take an informed decision regarding choosing a policy.
Depending on the policyholder’s need, Bajaj Allianz has a number of premium calculators that will compute specific date. For example, individuals who want to know the amount they need to save for retirement can use the ‘Retire Rich Calculator’ to ascertain the amount of money they would require based on their current salary, years of work ahead and years pension would be required.
