What is Term Insurance?

With a term insurance plan or term cover, an individual can avail coverage for a certain period of time or ‘term’ by paying a specific premium amount during that period. Such a life insurance policy guarantees a death benefit pay-out to the nominees/family members, if the insured dies during the period specified in the term insurance policy.

With the uncertainty and financial strain of the current COVID 19 pandemic, it is even more essential to ensure that your family will be cared for, whatever tomorrow may bring. A term plan helps you do exactly this. As they are regulated under IRDAI (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India), term insurance plans offer a guaranteed pay-out under the specified terms.

How does a Term Insurance Policy work?

Depending on the term plan you choose, your nominees are paid a lumpsum amount of money, in case of the policy holder’s death. By varying the lumpsum amount payable, you can also choose to receive monthly income benefits. A term insurance policy can be expanded to include riders so you can reap better term plan benefits in case of disability, critical illness, or accidental death , Income replacement at nominal prices.


Who needs a Term Cover?

While everyone should have a term cover, it is an absolutely essential investment for those who have people depending on them. This includes married couples, those with dependent parents, parents with dependent children, self-employed individuals, business people, and other taxpayers. Here’s why:

  • Newly-married couples: Before splurging on material gifts for special occasions, consider getting yourself and your spouse a gift that will give you peace of mind and financial security—a term insurance policy. In case of the loss of the primary breadwinner, the family has to contend with lack of funds along with their immense grief. With a lumpsum pay-out to address immediate needs as well as optional regular monthly payments, your spouse and dependents will be provided for in their time of need. Make the first present you give your spouse a term policy which tells them that you care about their wellbeing today and forever.
  • Parents: Raising children is not easy, and the costs incurred to meet their needs only increase with time. From diapers and school expenses, to heavier university fees and living expenses, the list of expenses runs long. How would the loss of financial security affect the dreams of your children? One of the responsibilities of parenting is to ensure that your children are not deprived in your absence. A term policy ensures that your children have your financial backing as they try to meet their goals in life, even if you’re not around.
  • Singles/Young Professionals: If you have no dependents, should you buy a term plan? Yes, there are a number of impressive benefits that make a term policy a must-buy for singles and young professionals. Critical illnesses are not just a problem for the elderly—from heart attacks to stress-related conditions, even people younger than 40 are at risk. Furthermore, getting a term plan early in life means that you will pay less premium for the same coverage, and save money on tax (under 80C).
  • Working Women: Women share the responsibility of taking care of the financial health of their families. Other than your own children and spouse, you can also have your parents as your nominees to ensure their financial security. With a critical illness rider, serious yet common conditions like cervical and breast cancer can be better handled with funds from your term insurance plan.
  • Retired People: A term plan is a smart idea for retired people who have dependents. Subject to conditions set forth under Section 10(10D) of the IT Act 1961, term insurance pay-outs are tax-free which means you can leave an inheritance for your children even if you don’t have money saved for them yet.
  • Tax Payers: Whether you are self-employed or in service, term insurance plans are a clever investment for all tax-payers. Reduce your existing tax burden by claiming paid premiums as deductibles under Section 80C.

    Your premium amount remains the same during the entire tenure of the plan. The only change your premium is subject to is change in service tax regulations, as declared by the Government of India.

    The cost of term plan depends on several factors such as the policy-holder’s age, health condition, smoking status, annual income, as well as the selected amount and tenure of insurance coverage.

    For e.g., buying an IndiaFirst Life E-Term Plan – a 1 crore term plan for a policy period of 40 years will cost up to Rs. 8,260 annually for a 30-year-old male non-smoker.

  • How much term insurance do I need?

    Experts recommend a term coverage that is, at a minimum, 10 times your yearly income. 15-20 times is a better idea. Ensure that you consider additional liability cover for your home, car, and personal loans for maximum financial security.

  • Is it okay to have two term insurance policies?

    There is no harm in getting extra term coverage as your means and liabilities change. You can have more than one term insurance plans running simultaneously. However, ensure that you disclose existing policy details as it has a bearing on new term cover eligibility.

  • Can I increase my term plan sum assured?

    Depending on your policy terms and conditions, it is possible to increase your sum assured during the term of your policy at certain checkpoints—marriage, childbirth or adoption, home loan, etc
