IDBI Federal Pioneers Medical Test-free Term Plan for Seniors

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Thursday, June 23, 2011 — (Business Wire India) — – A first-of-its-kind ‘no questions asked’ whole life plan
– Specially designed for people in the age group of 50-85 years
– A unique never-say-no offer to secure spouse and family from uncertainties
– It’s never too late to get life cover

Addressing the senior citizens with a first-of-its-kind hassle-free, no-medical-test plan, private life insurer IDBI Federal launched a Term Plan aimed at providing guaranteed cover to those above the age of 50 years.

IDBI Federal Termsurance® Seniors Insurance Plan is an innovative term insurance policy that one can buy after the age of 50, with premiums as low as Rs. 100 per month. The plan can be bought by those up to the age of 85 years and comes with a no-questions-asked, no-medical-tests guaranteed acceptance and offers a life insurance cover for whole of life.

Announcing the launch of the Termsurance® Seniors Plan, Mr. G V Nageswara Rao, MD & CEO of IDBI Federal Life Insurance said: “Life Insurance should ideally be taken early, but there are a sizeable number of people who would have missed taking an insurance cover when young. At IDBI Federal, we believe in challenging conventions, so we looked at a simple term plan and re-engineered it. With this unique Termsurance Seniors, a first-of-its-kind product in India, it will be never too late to get covered.”

“With a large number of nuclear families emerging, and the rising life expectancy and lifestyle diseases, there is a possibility of a large number of people nearing retirement with inadequate life insurance to support their spouse after their demise. Termsurance Seniors Insurance Plan is designed to secure the next of kin so they are not left dependent on the next generation. Parents should aim to become self-reliant when their children start a family on their own”, Mr. Rao said.

In case of death of the insured person after 2 years of commencement of policy, sum insured will be paid to the beneficiary, provided regular payment of the premiums have been made. In case of death of the insured person is within 2 years from the commencement of the policy, the nominee will get 125% of the total premiums paid.

The premium paid is entitled for deduction of tax under section 80C of the Income Tax Act.

Having started in March 2008, IDBI Federal is one of the fastest growing new insurance companies with over 2,92,000 policies issued and a Sum Assured of Rs 16,384 Crores.
