Aviva’s iLife Secure plan is a term insurance plan which pays a combination of lump sum and monthly incomes in case of death of the life insured. Moreover, the plan also has affordable rates of premiums which can be further reduced by availing rebates if a high level of Sum Assured is chosen.
Step 1 – the policyholder chooses the Sum Assured, the term of the plan and the premium paying frequency.
Step 2 – premiums are paid every year throughout the chosen tenure of the plan.
Step 3 – if the life insured dies during the term of the plan, the death benefit is paid to the nominee in lump sum. This death benefit is 10% of the Sum Assured chosen by the policyholder when buying the plan.
Step 4 – from the next death anniversary of the life insured, 6% of the Sum Assured is paid to the life insured’s nominee or beneficiary for 15 years.
Step 5 – If the plan matures, no benefit is paid.

Option 1 – if Ram dies during the term of the plan, 15% of the Sum Assured is paid in lump sum to the nominee. Thus, the nominee gets Rs.11.25 lakhs
Option 2 – from the next year after Ram’s death, 6% of the Sum Assured is paid every year as regular incomes for 15 years. Thus, Ram’s family gets Rs.4.5 lakhs every year for 15 years.
Option 3 – in case the plan matures, no benefit is paid as this is a pure term insurance plan.
