Key Features and Benefits


The key features covered under this policy are as follows:

  • 1. Life and critical illness rebalance

    This plan allows you to strike the right balance by auto-balancing the life and critical illness covers at each policy anniversary.

    The basic sum assured is split between Life Cover SA and Critical Illness SA (CI SA). First, Life Cover SA and CI SA comprise 80% and 20% respectively of the basic sum assured. After that, at every policy anniversary, starting from the first, CI SA will increase every year, and Life Cover SA will decrease by the same amount. This way enjoys a relevant cover when you need it the most.

  • Death coverage

    The death coverage is payable as a lump sum to the nominee of the insured. It is the highest than:
    • Sum assured on death or
