Cancer insurance plan, like the name suggests, provides coverage against all types of cancer, irrespective of which stage it is in.

Child Insurance Plans:

Child insurance plans offered by Max Life Insurance essentially provide the components of both insurance and investment. At the end of each policy term, the child receives a lump-sum amount as life cover from Max Life Insurance. On top of that, these plans also provide payout benefits at regular intervals, to financially secure the important milestones of your child’s life. The plans also provide substantial financial coverage against unfortunate events such as terminal illness or death.

Savings and Income Plans:

The savings plans offered under Max Life Insurance essentially help people develop a disciplined saving habit, and they also provide guaranteed returns, either as monthly income or as a lump-sum payout. The steady flow of returns depends on the need and the policy chosen by the respective individuals. Furthermore, these plans are also beneficial as they provide death benefits, rider benefits (like terminal illness benefits), tax benefits, and so on. These plans are most suitable for people who are the sole breadwinners of their families and want to ensure financial security for them.

Term Insurance Plans:

Term insurance policies are considered to be pure protection plans as they do not incorporate the investment element. Term plans are effectively simple to understand, demand cheaper premiums, and also provide financial security to the family of the policyholder in case of his/her absence. Term plans offer life cover that an individual is free to choose, depending on the financial needs of his/her family. There is no lump-sum amount involved as term plans are predominantly insurance plans, however, if the policyholder passes away while the policy is still in force, the insurer provides a lump-sum payout to the family to tide over financial losses.

Retirement Plans:

The retirement plans offered by Max Life Insurance essentially help people lead a certain lifestyle after their working income comes to a halt. Individuals can either choose a lump-sum benefit at the end of the policy term, or annuity plans. In annuity plans, the insurer provides monthly payouts as pension benefits to the insured. Individuals who invest in such plans are required to give away a portion of their earnings from their income, so that they are able to make use of that saving during their retirement years. This saving can be withdrawn either in parts or in whole, depending on the insured. Since retirement plans offer the benefits of both protection and insurance, they are ideal for one’s golden years.

Group Insurance Plans:

In order to promote benefits of life insurance and increase the percentage of insured individuals in the country, multiple organisations, groups, and corporates have started providing comprehensive life and health insurance policies to their employees in one go. Companies provide insurance policies ranging from health and savings plans to insurance and group gratuity plans. These plans have diverse, distinctive characteristics and they offer widely different benefits, most suitable for the policyholders. This approach is implemented in order to cover all the facets of investment and savings, to eventually impart complete financial security to the members.

Health Insurance Plans:

The health insurance plans offered under Max Life Insurance essentially ensure that all medical expenses of the members in the group are covered, especially during unforeseen events like accident. Any other illnesses, like critical illnesses are also covered under the plan offered by Max Life. In order to cover medical costs extensively and tide over the financial losses incurred during the event, Max Life Insurance offers health plans that cover outpatient expenses and certain medical procedures as well.

ULIP Plans:

The ULIP plans offered under Max Life Insurance fundamentally incorporate the elements of both insurance and investment, thereby providing the policyholders the chance to invest in multiple financial products such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and so on. These investments yield huge returns for the insured while simultaneously providing a protection cover as well.
