Term Insurance offered by Max Life

Max Life Smart Secure Plus Plan

This term plan comes with a whole host of benefits and provides multiple features to choose from so that you can select what best fits your changing lifestyle. A good thing about this plan is that it has in-built Terminal illness benefit

Some standout features of this plan:

  • Voluntary top-up sum assured:

    If you want to increase your cover at a later stage in policy term, you can do this up to a maximum of 100% of base cover by selecting this option right at the policy inception.

  • Joint Life cover:

    This option covers both you and your spouse. In case your spouse dies after your demise, a lump sum of 50 lakhs is paid to the nominee. However, if the spouse dies before your demise, a lump sum of 10 lakhs is paid to you and your base policy still remains active.

  • Premium Break:

    Paying premiums can become unaffordable if you run into some financial trouble. With this option you can choose not to pay the premium and your policy will still continue to be in force. You can avail this break twice during the policy term.

Riders you can select with this plan:

  • Waiver of Premium Plus rider:

    If you’re diagnosed with any of the listed 11 critical illnesses, or get disabled due to some injury or illness, all your future premiums will be waived off. Meaning you don’t have to pay the premiums but your policy will still be active.

ULIP Plans

Unit Linked Insurance Plans or widely known as ULIPs are part insurance, part investment plans. So the premium that you pay, some of it is allocated towards providing a death cover and the rest is invested in equity and debt funds, whichever you choose. So if something were to happen to you, your family either gets death cover or the fund value, whichever is higher at that time.

Say you’re paying a premium of 1 lakh every year for 20 years and for a death cover of 10 lakhs. You die after 15 years and your family naturally gets 10 lakhs. However if at that time the value of your invested premiums is 13 lakhs, your family gets this 13 lakhs. But if the fund doesn’t earn good returns and values at 8 lacs, then you get the death cover. So 10 lacs, i.e., your death cover is the minimum payout. But if you survive after 20 years, then you get all those invested funds back, whatever the value is at that time. That’s your maturity payout.

But there are other things to look for as well. Firstly, there is a lock-in period of 5 years, meaning you won’t be able to get back your premiums before 5 years. It’s only after 5 years that you’re allowed to withdraw some funds and even that is partial withdrawal. You can never withdraw the entire amount. Also, there are different charges that are deducted from your premium every year like premium allocation charge, policy administration charge, fund management charge, etc. So the entire 1 lakh is never invested.

Make sure you read the policy document diligently. And remember ULIPs are largely dependent on how the market is performing, both stocks and bonds.
