Benefits of Aegon iTerm Plan

Listed below are some of the noteworthy benefits that one gets upon choosing Aegon iTerm Plan:

  1. Terminal Illness Benefit 

In the Terminal Illness plan, if all the due premium is paid and policy is in-force, the complete amount is paid to 100%. The complete sum of the amount is given to the policy holder on the date of  diagnosis of the Terminal illness. The policy will be terminated once the payment is complete. 

  1.  Death Benefit

 On the policyholder’s death, the nominee can get the death benefit in the form of:

  • 100% as the income benefit which will be paid throughout 100 months
  • 100% lump sum on death
  • Part as the lump sum benefit and balance as the income benefit.

The death benefit gets quantified when it comes to the total sum assured. The latter is calculated as the sum of the lump sum assured & income benefit sum assured. 

In the scenario of death of an assured individual then the nominee will get the complete sum assured that shall be payable specifically (provided that he/she has paid every due premium)  – 

  • lump sum assured will be immediately paid
  • 1.2% of the income benefit sum assured will be monthly paid for 100 months. 

At the time of the death claim, the nominee will get the flexibility to choose the Total Sum assured for being paid in a single lump sum quickly. This policy will terminate on the payment of the above-mentioned benefits.

3. Maturity Benefit 

No benefit of maturity is applicable under the maturity plan. Which means if an individual survives till the last date of maturity, there will be no additional benefits payable and the policy will get terminated.

4. Life Stage Benefit

With the growing cover of responsibilities, one needs to look up for the right plan for support. Choosing the life stage plan adds on with the benefit at every stage of life. Such a plan provides you with the advantage of boosting the sum assured at the time of marriage or child’s birth. An individual can easily increase the total sum to 50% on marriage while 25% can be increased at the time of two children's birth. The increase in the policy plan can be allowed without going for any medical check-up and only if the insured one is below the age of 45 at the time of child birth or marriage. The total sum of INR 50 Lakh is allowed in case of marriage and INR 25 Lakh is allowed for the child birth.

5. Riders Benefits

There are two options for the rider plan, one is the Accidental Disability Rider and the other is Critical Illness Plus Rider. You can look for the right olan according to the requirement. For adding up the support with comprehensive scope of cover one can add up the premium cover accordingly.

What is Covered?

As per the plan variant you opt for, Aegon iTerm Plan provides coverage for the following -

The following types of coverage benefits are offered under this option:
