Money Back Policy

A Brief Introduction:-
A reliable source of income on our investment in regular intervals with an insurance cover to our lives is one simple way to define money back policy. The fact that survival benefits are shared on regular intervals during the term of the policy makes it different from an ordinary endowment plan where the policy holder has to wait for the entire term to complete to earn the same.
In the event of an untimely death of the policy holder during the term the entire sum assured can be claimed irrespective of the survival benefits earned during previous terms.

Salient features of a money back policy
When a person is willing to purchase a money back policy he/she will come across certain terminology that acts as a deciding factor to choose a policy.

Policy term and premium term
: Policy term is a period during which a person’s life is insured and a premium term is the term during which the policy holder is bound to pay premiums to the insuring company. In most of the cases both these terms will be the same; for ex: if the policy term and premium term is 15 years the sum assured will be paid off in regular intervals and after the end of term there will be no balance of sum assured that the insurer needs to pay the policy holder. While in some cases the policy term will be longer than premium terms (policy term 15 years, premium term 12 years) and the policy holder will be covered with cover benefits till the end of policy term. Here it is to be noted that accidental death that occurs after premium term will not be covered.

Premium paid and sum assured
: The premium paid defines the total sum assured and each money back policy can be differentiated on this basis. With higher premiums, short policy term and higher bonuses there are policies that provide the sum assured in the last few years of the policy. With moderate premiums, moderate bonuses and long terms there are policies that provide equally divided amounts of sum assured in regular intervals of policy term. On the other hand there is a policy of LIC with single premium payment and based on premium sum assured will be paid back to the policy holder in regular intervals.

Loyalties, bonus and riders
: These will be final features that can make a policy holder confident about his choice. Every policy will have a set of assured bonus that may be shared in regular intervals or got at the end of policy term. Added to these a policy can also provide set of riders; for ex: an accident rider that will provide a part of sum assured in short term installments in course of an accident resulting in permanent disability of the policy holder. An additional premium will have to be paid for such riders.
