Let's understand the plan with an example

Let's understand the plan with an example: 

Ms.Shalini (age 30 years) is an executive with a multinational firm. She is married to an adventure sports professional. They have a daughter, Anuja, who is 3 years old. While they lead a good lifestyle with an owned house and car, both are availed through loans. Shalini is aware that life is uncertain and her husband's profession does not allow him to take a very high insurance cover in his name. Hence she relies on Aegon Life's iReturn Insurance Plan.

Her plan details are as follows:

Cover Amount (Base Sum Assured): Rs.75 lakhs, Policy Term: 20 years, Premium Payment Term: 20 years, Base Premium: Rs.14,850/-. Additionally, she opts for the Women CI Rider and iCI Rider to take care of any critical illnesses. She also wants to ensure that this policy's benefits are accrued come what may, hence she opts for Waiver of Premium on CI Rider. Additional premium for Riders: Rs.2939/- p.a.

Total Payout = Rs.1.04 crore (on diagnosis of ovarian cancer: Rs. 25 lakhs for iCI Rider and Rs.3.75 lakhs for Women CI Rider + Rs.75 lakhs cover amount on death

Total Payout = All premiums returned = Rs.2,97,000/- i.e. Rs. 14,850 * 20 years

FAQ

What is a Term Plan with Return of Premium?

A Term plan with Return of Premium is a contract between the applicant and the Life Insurance Company, under which the applicant agrees to pay a certain amount of money (Premium) per year for a fixed period in order to receive a guaranteed amount of money (Sum assured) in the event of his death during the policy term, payable to his nominee (any family member). And at the end of the policy term, on survival, sum of all premiums (excluding rider, extra premium & taxes) paid will be returned to the policy holder.

Why should I buy Term with Return of Premium Plan?

A Term Plan with Return of Premium is best suited for working individuals who have dependents (Children, parents) and are looking for a considerable sum of protection against uncertainties of life (death). A Term Plan with Return of Premium is meant to fulfill the basic purpose of any Life Insurance policy by providing financial security for the applicant and his family. Besides, Premiums paid for the base Policy are returned on survival at the end of Policy Term.

What if I am already insured under a Group Insurance Scheme by my employer? Should I buy a Term Insurance Plan?
