Future Generali’s Flexi Online Term Plan is an online term insurance plan which can be bought easily. The plan provides a high level of protection at low rates of premiums. The death benefit is flexible in the sense that the policyholder can choose to receive the benefit in lump sum or in monthly incomes.
Step 1 – the policyholder chooses the death benefit option required. He can choose to receive the death benefit in two options–
Step 2 – then the policyholder chooses the Sum Assured for basic life cover where lump sum is paid. If he wants income protection cover which pays monthly incomes, the policyholder would have to choose the level of fixed or increasing monthly payout.
Step 3 – the next step is to choose the policy term. Premiums are paid for the entire plan duration
Step 4- in case of death within the term of the plan, the death benefit is paid. The benefit would depend on the option chosen by the policyholder when the plan was bought. If lump sum option is selected, the Sum Assured would be paid entirely in lump sum. If monthly income option is selected, the chosen monthly income is paid for a higher of 120 months or till the time the insured would have attained 60 years. In case of increasing monthly incomes too, the payout tenure of the income is same. The level of monthly income chosen by the policyholder would increase every year by 10% (simple interest).
Step 6 – If the plan matures, no benefit is paid.
Rahul buys the Flexi Online Term Plan for a term of 30 years. Rahul is aged 35 years so the plan covers him till 65 years of age.
Option 1 – Rahul chooses the Basic Life Cover of Rs.50 lakhs. He pays a premium of Rs.5789 and in case of his premature death during the plan term, Rahul’s nominee gets Rs.50 lakhs in lump sum.
Option 2 – Rahul chooses the Fixed Monthly Income benefit and selects a monthly income of Rs.25, 000. The premium charged is Rs.4361. If Rahul dies during the 10th policy year, a monthly income of Rs.25, 000 would be paid to his nominee for 15 years till which time Rahul had attained 60 years of age. If Rahul dies later, the monthly incomes would be paid till Rahul would have reached 60 years or for a minimum of 10 years whichever is higher.
Option 3 – Rahul chooses the increasing monthly income of Rs.25, 000. This income would start after Rahul’s death and would increase to Rs.27, 500 in the next year.
