Concept of Term Insurance

Term insurance is pure risk protection. Nominees get the death benefit if policyholder dies within the tenure. This plan offers no survival benefit.

The premium for term insurance is comparatively lower as there is no investment element, unlike endowment plans and ULIPs.

Term insurance premiums vary from insurer to insurer. Each insurer has its own eligibility criteria. The minimum age of entry is 18 years; whereas the maximum age is 65 years.
