Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance News
Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance has recently introduced the iSecure, which is an online term plan. The plan will be providing a sum assured of at least INR 20 lakhs.
The program will be providing a number of extra riders like critical illness, hospital cash, and detailed accidental protection benefits. This will make the online term plan the only one of its kind in the Indian insurance market as far as the offerings are concerned.
Bajaj Allianz has always been at the forefront when it comes to web based ULIPs and iSecure has allowed it to complete its portfolio of online products, which now has term and conventional insurance plans in addition to the unit linked insurance plans. This is the opinion of Rituraj Bhattacharya, the Head of the Marketing Management department at Bajaj Allianz Life.
Some of the major features of the plan may be enumerated as below:
- Proper term cover at lower premiums
- Various options to decide policy term
- Commendably high rebate on sum assured
- Capability to include spouse in the program
A major advantage of the web based insurance plans is that since the company is able to connect directly with the policyholders the intermediaries are eliminated and the organizations can save on the commission to be paid to them.
Yet another beneficial feature of these plans is that the saved money is provided to the end consumers. All these factors have contributed greatly to their growing popularity.
The iSecure plan is offering lower premiums for non-smokers and ones who go for higher coverage amounts are being provided discounts. If a policyholder wants to make consistent income for their family when they are not there they can choose to have the proceeds provided to their family in yearly installments.
The term period for paying the premium is from 10 to 30 years and customers can change their frequency of paying their premiums as per their convenience throughout the term period.
