You earn and work hard to accomplish your dreams and aspirations at every stage of life. In this journey, you will come across some unexpected financial commitments as well as planned ones like marriage; child education, etc. During your golden years of retirement when income earning capacity reduces, it becomes even more difficult to fulfill these dreams and aspirations.
What if you have a support that will not only help you in fulfilling your dreams but will also take care of your near and dear ones in case you are not around …
The value of your hard-earned money is best understood by you. The most important thing is to ensure that the money is put in the right use for it to provide benefits to you and your family in the long run.
To support you in this journey, we recommend the “KotakLife Systemic Benefit Plan”, a limited pay participating endowment plan which will provide you the option either to receive Cash bonus payouts every year right from the end of 1st policy year onwards to take care of interim financial requirements or utilize such Cash bonuses for accumulating and creating a corpus to fulfill bigger goals and plan for a stress-free life.
What is an Endowment Policy? A traditional insurance plan pays out a lump sum assured in the event of the death of the policyholder. The beneficiaries/dependents/nominees of the life insured receive a benefit (called a death benefit) if the worst should come to pass for the insurance holder. An endowment plan works the same way, but has an additional clause that states that a lump sum payment will be made to the insurance holder if he or she survives till the end of a specified period known as the “maturity period”, “endowment policy term” or “survival term”. There are variations to the payout clause in endowment policies – some companies have a lump sum payout on the detection of a critical illness, or other life-changing events.
Key Features of Endowment Policies:
Sum assured in an endowment policy is payable either on survival to the term or on death occurring within the term.
Endowment policies are available as ‘With Profit’ and ‘Without Profit’ plans.
Under Endowment policies, bonus for the full term is payable on the date of maturity or in the event of death, whichever is earlier.
Premiums for endowment policies can be limited to shorter term or can be paid as single premium.
Premiums cease on death or on expiry of the term, whichever is earlier.
Benefits of Endowment Policies:
Endowment policies carry plenty of benefits, a few of which are listed below:
An endowment policy will provide insurance cover during the policy term.
An endowment policy will pay out a sizeable lump sum amount at the end of the policy term i.e. once the policy has matured.
An endowment policy works to serve a dual purpose. Not only does it work as an insurance policy but also serves as a long-term investment offering decent returns.
Endowment policies come with tax benefits.
In terms of investing, endowment policies are relatively safer than other types of investments and offer returns which are close to those offered by mutual funds.
Endowment policies enable long-term savings.
With an endowment policy, you can be assured of receiving a considerable amount upon maturity.
Most will extend insurance coverage and the promise of benefits even after the maturity date, in some cases up to a time when the life insured attains the age of 100.
Policy holders have the options of opting for additional riders which provide cover for specific illnesses, critical illnesses, disabilities, etc.
