A 5 year policy offers short term benefits and is ideal in this fast moving world.

    Features and Benefits

    Some of the salient features and benefits of a 5 year term life insurance policy are mentioned below.

    • Surrender benefit Policyholders are entitled to surrender benefits if they choose to surrender their policies before maturity.

    • Additional riders Policyholders can choose to avail extra cover by adding additional riders to their plan, enhancing protection to meet their individual requirements.

    Note These features and benefits might vary depending on the service provider and it is recommended to check with the provider first.

    Who is this plan suited for

    A 5 year term life insurance policy is suited for individuals who have immediate financial concerns which could aggravate post their demise. It is apt for those who feel their demise could push their family towards hard time in the near future. Individuals approaching a ripe age can opt for this policy, provided they are healthy and fit to be offered protection. It is also suited for individuals who have to look after their family, with educational or marriage responsibilities on them. Individuals with limited means can choose this policy as the premium is generally lower compared to traditional life insurance policies.

    How this plan works

    The working of a 5 year term life insurance policy is simple to understand, with a straightforward working methodology. Under the plan, an individual is expected to pay premiums for the duration of this policy and he/she is entitled to protection during this term. In the event of his/her unfortunate demise during this term, his/her nominee will receive a death benefit which depends on the premium. There is no maturity benefit under this scheme and an individual is not entitled to any monetary return on maturity of the policy. Also, no benefit will be paid if an individual passes away after the policy has expired or lapsed.
