Need Term Insurance (2 Crores) Advice. Taking Two Plans 1 Crore Each.

POSTED BY Mayank Verma ON June 17, 2013 11:44 am COMMENTS (2)

Hi,

I am 24 years old and my family (5 members) is financially dependent on me. I am looking for a pure term plan of 2 Crores. After reading articles and comments on Jagoinvstor and I am thinking of spilitting the insurance in two different companies instead of going for one. (I have not taken any term insurance yet). here are the two companies I am looking for :

1. 1 Crore SA from HDFC Life (Annual Premium 8,600) for 30 years.

2. 1 Crore SA from Aegon Religare (Annual Premoium 6,300) for 40 years.

I have a Jeevan Anand policy which I am going to surrender (just paid 2 premiums so far). my questions are :

1. Are the choices listed above good? With HDFC claim settlement ratio 96.2% and Aegon’s low as comapred to others but premium affordable.

2. Does it pose any problems if I buy the term insurance before surrendering the LIC policy? As I need to buy the term plan asap and not sure how long does it take to surrender the policy in LIC.

    Dear Ashal,

    Thank you for your response. Any specific reason to keep it to one company? as everywhere including this blog I see to split the cover (1Crore or above) into two companies

    I am not looking for any surrender value, I am just surrendering them as I dont need them anymore.

  2. Dear Mayank, personally i w’d recommend a single cover of 2Cr. Rs. with the insurer of your choice. if you are comfortable with HDFC, you should not be worried for a bit higher prem. or vice versa for Aegon Religare.

    Coming back to LIC policy, as you have paid just 2 prem. no surrender value is there.

    thanks

    Ashal
