Term Life Plan vs Money Back Plan - Know Before Buying

Term Life Plan vs Money Back Plan - Know Before Buying
March 19, 2019

Any kind of an insurance policy derives its truth from the fact of continuation and is futuristic in plan. A traditional term insurance plan is the one that entitles the policy holder’s nominee(s) to receive a pre-decided and documented amount (i.e. sum assured) in the event of her/his death during the plan term. What this essentially means is that the policy holder and the insurance provider both work out as grantors towards the amount to which the policy holder is entitled. Therefore, as per the regular definitions of the terms, a standard term insurance plan does not offer any maturity proceeds or any “renewal benefits”. It simply serves as a guarantee of financial protection for your loved ones in the event of any unforeseen circumstances. However, a traditional and a standard money back policy offers the unique feature of regular payouts in a pre-decided time period over the complete term of the plan. In case of the policy subscriber’s demise during the term of the plan, her/his nominee(s) are entitled to the main coverage benefit, which is the main sum assured and this amount is independent and beyond the amount that has been already paid by the insurer as regular payouts. In simple words, money back policies offer additional benefits in the due period of time as included in the conditions of the policy and as demanded by the pre-decided and documented limits of the plan.

The matter of difference is that money-back plans serve as basic instruments for monetary control and budgetary allocations given the fact that you get more accrued benefits than what you can get from traditional ones. This is where the due comparison comes in between a standard term plan and a money back plan. Once you compare the whole volume of premiums paid by the subscriber over the term of the plan, you may find that the premium rates are in fact, much expensive. This, in essence, means that the generated returns of the money back policies in comparison to the paid premiums tend to be less cost efficient. After all, when the comparison between the premium rates of money back policies and those of traditional term plans is made, the term plans emerge as much economical. Therefore, a thorough analysis of your specific requirements must be done before investing in money back policies.
