A term insurance plan is the simplest form of life insurance offering life cover to the policyholder for a certain period. It offers a substantial amount of coverage for an affordable premium amount.
If the insured person passes away during the policy term, the appointed nominee will receive the sum assured, i.e., the death benefit. This sum assured is paid based on the payout option (one-time lump sum or regular monthly payments) as chosen by the policyholder.
A regular term life insurance plan does not offer the policyholder any maturity/survival benefits. However, you can purchase a term plan with a return of premium feature to get the sum of all premiums paid as a maturity benefit if you survive the policy term.
With a term insurance plan, you ensure your family is financially secure in case of your unexpected demise. The sum assured allows them to live a respectful life and handle financial liabilities.
