Mr. Babu has a wife and a child, and he is the sole earner in his family. He does his calculations and arrives at the conclusions that a payout of Rs.50,00,000 should be enough to support his family in the case of his untimely demise.
Mr. Babu chooses a sum assured of Rs.50,00,000 for a policy term of 30 years.
He pays his premiums regularly, till his death during the policy term – in which case his wife and child will receive the sum assured chosen of Rs.50,00,000.
If he had paid his premiums regularly for 15 years, and then stopped for a couple of years, and then passed away, his family would be entitled to receive the Reduced Insurance Cover of 25% of the sum assured, which is 25% of Rs.50,00,000 = Rs.12,50,000.
If Mr. Babu had stopped paying premiums before 15 policy years had passed, and then died, his family would not be entitled to receive any benefit from the company.
