IRDAI announced ‘simple life insurance’, now anyone can take term plan

Awareness in our country is already very low in insurance, it is even more difficult to understand and fulfill the policy terms of insurance companies from above.

IRDAI has now announced simple life insurance. With this, those people will also be able to take term plans, who were not able to get insurance due to the terms and conditions.

Insurance regulator IRDAI has announced a standard term life policy. However, we had already told this news that IRDAI is going to bring a standard term policy.

Different companies have different term life insurance products. Whose terms and rules are different. The reason for this is that customers often find it difficult to understand the policy.

According to the order of IRDAI, insurance companies will be able to launch these products in the market from 1 January 2021.

Now anyone can take a term plan

Standard term policy is a product whose terms and conditions will be exactly the same for all insurance companies.

By buying from any insurance company, you will get the same benefit of term insurance.

This policy can be taken by anyone from 18 years to 65 years. The policy term will be from 5 years to 40 years.

The maximum maturity age in this will be 70 years. There will be a sum assured of Rs 5 lakh to Rs 25 lakh.

Earlier these were problems

Right now the biggest problem with the term plan was that the insurance companies used to ask for income tax returns from customers, due to which small and big businessmen could not take a term plan. Because they do not have tax returns.

It was necessary to have an annual income of at least 2 lakh to 5 lakh in the tax return, that is, 98 percent population of the country was likewise excluded from the term plan.

But the insurance regulator IRDAI has now removed this condition from the policy. Its advantage will be that now its scope will be very large. More and more people will be able to get a term plan.
