Om Kotak Mahindra Insurance Company News

Kotak Life Insurance has launched the Kotak Assured Protection Plan on July 13, 2012. The plan offers a combination of savings and protection benefits. The plan provides coverage against death due to natural reasons and accidents as well. In case of accidental death the policyholder is paid 200 percent of the sum insured.

The plan allows the premium to be waived off in case the insured is disabled due to some accident. It also pays 20 percent of the sum assured in case the policyholder is diagnosed with any one of the 12 specified critical illnesses. However, these benefits can be availed as long as the policyholder is younger than 70 years.

The plan covers proposers who are yet to be 75 years old. In addition, the policy also pays the total sum assured once the term period of the policy ends. It must be said in this regard that the above mentioned benefits are not dependent on each other.

For example, even if the insured has received a certain amount in any of the cases mentioned above, he or she will keep getting the other benefits as and when they are deemed necessary. There will be no deduction from the sum assured.

The plan also enables the insured to be flexible with their premium payments for either a 15 year period or till the policy ends after the insured is 60 years old. In case of policies where the sum assured is higher, discounts on premium are chosen on the basis of the selected premium band.

In addition, the insured can also avail a loan against the policy to satisfy any fiscal requirement that may come up when the policy is operational.

In other news, the organization has also recently recruited Sunil Sharma as its Appointed Actuary. Sharma has at least 21 years' experience in the Reinsurance and Life Insurance industries of India, the UK, the US, and South East Asia.

He has worked with the top life insurers in India as well as GE Financial Assurance and Swiss RE. Sharma is a trained Actuary and a fellow of Institute of Actuaries of India (FIAI) and Fellow of Institute of Actuaries, UK (FIA).

He has served as the Chairperson of Advisory Group on Communication of Institute of Actuaries of India (IAI). He has also been a part of the Advisory Group on Peer, Stakeholder and International Relations of the same organization. Besides, he edits the Actuary India Magazine.
