Our life is defined by roles that we play and these roles keep changing based on the life stage that we are in. From a carefree childhood to those rebellious teenage years, from being a responsible adult to enjoying a relaxed retired life. As we undergo transition from one life stage to another our priorities change and so should our insurance plan.
As one progresses in life, the requirement for your protection needs change. Envisaging this, we have crafted a one of its kind plan, SBI Life – Poorna Suraksha, a non-linked non-participating, term assurance plan, with an inbuilt critical illness cover, which balances between the life cover and Critical Illness (CI) cover based on one’s life stage, i.e. with increase in age, the CI cover increases without any additional premium or underwriting.
SBI Life – Poorna Suraksha provides you with following benefits:
*Tax benefits are as per prevailing Tax laws & are subject to change from time to time. Please consult your tax advisor for details.
SBI Life – Poorna Suraksha rebalances the Life cover and Critical Illness cover on every policy anniversary. The rebalancing is done, to provide increased protection against various critical illnesses with increasing age.
At policy inception, the Basic Sum Assured would be split between Life Cover Sum Assured & CI Sum Assured in the proportion of 80:20 respectively. There would be an increase in CI SA on a year on year basis, as mentioned in table below. The increase will be as a percentage of initial CI sum assured, based on chosen policy term. For example, if Mr. Anand opts for a base sum assured of Rs. 1, 00, 00,000 with 15 years term. His initial CI SA would be 20 Lakhs and Life cover SA would be 80 Lakhs. On every policy anniversary, his CI SA would increase by Rs. 2 Lakhs (i.e. 10% of Initial CI SA)
The decrease in Life Cover SA would be equal to the increase in CI SA i.e. it will decrease by Rs. 2 Lakhs on every policy anniversary, if we consider the above example of Mr. Anand. The total base sum assured (Life Cover SA + CI SA) would remain the same throughout the policy term
