Describe the approaches of CAC Term Insurance Policy

A term insurance policy is a pure risk cover policy that protects the person insured for a specific period of time. In such type of a life insurance policy, a fixed sum of money called the sum assured is paid to the beneficiaries (family) if the policyholder expires within the policy term. For instance, if a person buys a Rs 2 lakh policy for 15 years, his family is entitled to the sum of Rs 2 lakh if he dies within that 15-year period.

If the policy holder survives the 15-year period, the premiums paid are not returned back. The advantage, apart from the financial security for an individuals family is that the premiums paid are exempt from tax.

These insurance policies are designed to provide 100 per cent risk cover and hence they do not have any additional charges other than the basic ones. This makes premiums paid under such life insurance policies the lowest in the life insurance category.

Whole Life Policy

A whole life policy covers a policyholder against death, throughout his life term. The advantage that an individual gets when he / she opts for a whole life policy is that the validity of this life insurance policy is not defined and hence the individual enjoys the life cover throughout his or her life.

Under this life insurance policy, the policyholder pays regular premiums until his death, upon which the corpus is paid to the family. The policy does not expire till the time any unfortunate event occurs with the individual.

Increasingly, whole life policies are being combined with other insurance products to address a variety of needs such as retirement planning, etc. Premiums paid under the whole life policies are tax exempt.

Endowment Policy

Combining risk cover with financial savings, endowment policies are among the popular life insurance policies.

Policy holders benefit in two ways from a pure endowment insurance policy. In case of death during the tenure, the beneficiary gets the sum assured. If the individual survives the policy tenure, he gets back the premiums paid with other investment returns and benefits like bonuses.

In addition to the basic policy, insurers offer various benefits such as double endowment and marriage/ education endowment plans.

The concept of providing the customers with better returns has been gaining importance in recent times.
