Get The Types Of Life Insurance For All The Family Members In India

With so many types of life insurance plans available in India, it is possible for you to find a life insurance policy that can suit your insurance needs and your budget. If you are looking for a simple life cover to ensure your family’s protection in your absence, then a pure term insurance policy should be your pick. However, when it comes to saving your money or making an investment with a life insurance policy, you can turn to a life insurance savings plan or a Unit-Linked Insurance Plan (ULIPs).

Those seeking to save up and earn a regular income for their retirement years should opt for an annuity plan. Even some savings plans are designed to help you save funds for retirement. Hence, with the option of several different life insurance types, you have the flexibility of choosing any that works for you.

Term Insurance Protection for the Whole Family

Term Insurance Plans

A term insurance policy is the simplest form of life insurance that can help you protect your family from financial emergencies in your absence. Term insurance provides pure life cover protection for a certain policy term and sum assured. In case of your untimely demise of the life assured during the policy term, the nominee can avail of this sum assured and financially sustain themselves.

A term insurance plan is also easy to protect them from unpaid loans and debts in your absence. Additionally, if there are major expenses that need to be taken care of when you are not around, your family can use the term insurance sum assured to meet these financial obligations.

A term life insurance policy is preferred by many because of the low premiums on the policy despite a high coverage. And when you buy a term insurance plan at a younger age, you can lock in lower premiums for a higher sum assured and continue paying low premiums over the years.

Term insurance policy coverage can be enhanced with optional rider# benefits. These riders are additional covers that can be added to the base term policy for an extra but nominal premium. For instance, with a critical illness cover, you can avail of financial support for your treatment and care in case you are diagnosed with a critical illness as listed under the rider. A health rider can support emergencies that deal with major and minor illnesses and injuries, hospitalization costs, terminal illnesses, and so on.


Ms Ritu is a 25-year-old working professional who lives with her parents and her school-going sister. Her parents are nearing retirement, and in a couple of years, Ritu will be the only earning member in her family, at least for the next 15 years. Therefore, Ritu buys a term insurance policy for a policy term of 30 years and a sum assured of ₹1 crore with affordable annual premiums to protect her family’s financial future. If an unfortunate incident befalls Ritu during these 30 years, the sum assured will be enough to help her parents take care of themselves and her sister.

Types of Term Insurance Plan

  • Convertible Term Plans

    Convertible term plans offer an option where the term plan can be converted into any other life insurance plan in the future but after a certain number of years. Hence, a simple term insurance plan can become a savings plan or a Unit-Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP).

  • Decreasing Term Plans

    If you have lower lesser insurance needs with each passing year, a decreasing term plan may be a good choice as the sum assured decreases each year. For instance,the financial risk decreases if you are repaying an EMI each year.

  • Level Term Plans

    As the most basic type of term plan, the sum assured of a level term plan is fixed throughout the policy term, and in the event of the policyholder’s death, the death benefit will be paid out to the nominee named in the term policy.

  • Increasing Term Plans

    Under this type of term insurance plan, you can increase the sum assured annually during the policy term but still continue paying the same premiums as before. The premiums for these policies are slightly higher than level term insurance.

  • Term Plans with Return of Premium

    You can get the premium amount you paid back with Term plans that offer return of premium. Maturity benefits on the term plans where 105% of the total premium** paid towards the policy is returned to the policyholder if they survive the policy term.

There are a variety of savings plans that you can choose from depending on what goals and financial commitments you need to save for.

Unit Linked Insurance Plans (ULIP) Plans

A Unit-Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP) combines the benefits of investment and life insurance under a single plan. With a ULIP, you can grow your wealth by systematically investing in various funds that will help you earn market-linked returns on maturity. At the same time, the life cover component helps protect your loved ones in case of an unfortunate occurrence where you cannot provide for your family anymore. The premiums you pay for your ULIP are split between the investment and the life cover.

As an investor, investing in a ULIP policy will need you to assess your risk appetite, based on which you can select the funds to invest in. Since every investor’s investment needs are different, ULIPs, too, are designed to meet these varying needs. This means not only do you have the flexibility to choose the investment tenure and the premium payment term and mode, but you can also select from the range of investment funds offered. Whether you have a moderate risk appetite or a high-risk appetite, you can choose from equity funds, hybrid funds, bonds, and other securities to invest in.

When it comes to the tax benefits on a Unit-Linked Insurance Plan, under Section 80C of the Income Tax+ Act, 1961, the annualized premium is eligible for a tax deduction, and under Section 10(10D), the returns received on maturity are exempt from taxes.


Ms Manisha’s insurance needs are not restricted to a simple life insurance policy, and she wants an investment component which is why she buys a ULIP policy worth ₹50 Lakh for a tenure of 15 years and pays an annualised premium of ₹50,000 per year. She can choose from flexible fund options and pay the premiums as per her choice of premium payment mode.

At the end of the 15 years, Manisha will be able to get the total returns on her investment along with any loyalty bonuses that are added to the plan for being invested for the entire policy tenure. And if anything happens to Manisha before the end of the policy term, her family will receive the sum assured of 50 Lakh.

Retirement Plans

A retirement insurance plan or a pension plan is a type of life insurance plan that helps you save a financial corpus over a period of time for your retirement years. With a retirement plan, you can ensure a steady and regular income for yourself and your family when you stop earning a salary. This can help you lead a comfortable life with financial independence since the accumulated amount can suffice for the essential needs of you and your family as well as any emergency needs such as a medical contingency.

With long-term savings and investments, a retirement plan enables you to accumulate significant funds over the years. And with the life insurance cover, it is possible to protect your family’s financial future in case you are not around to look after them during your retirement years. As compared to traditional forms of savings, a retirement plan offers retirement investment options that can aid in growing the fund so that the inflation rate does not impact the value of your investment and savings.

Even though retirement plans are preferred for the benefit of a regular income, you can also choose to receive a lump sum amount or a combination of regular income and a lump sum payout. This benefit can help you decide how you want to receive the payout to plan for your goals in your retirement years accordingly. In addition, retirement plans also offer an income tax+ exemption on the maturity amount as per Section 10(10D) of the Income Tax Act, 1961.


If a 40-year-old working professional wants to retire at the age of 60 years and wants to receive a regular income after retirement, they should opt for a retirement plan with a policy term of 20 years at the age of 40 years. Depending on their needs and financial goals during their retirement years, they can choose a sum assured that will be adequate for the needs of their family as well as for medical emergencies.

After retirement, keeping in mind that the regular income will replace the salary, one should also plan any major expenses such as starting a new business, funding a specialised course for their children, etc.

Types of Retirement Insurance Plans

Retirement insurance plans, also known as annuity plans, are of two types:

  • Immediate Annuity

    Under this type of annuity plan, you can make a lump sum payment towards the annuity plan and start receiving the payouts as guaranteed income within a year of the lumpsum payment.

  • Deferred Annuity

    Under a deferred annuity plan, the policyholder pays the premiums over the policy term and, on retirement, starts receiving the regular income payouts. The payouts are offered at a later date and not immediately.

Group Insurance Plans

Group insurance plans cover a group of people, especially in an organisation, where the policy is offered by the employer or the company and the coverage and benefits are standard for all the members covered, irrespective of their socio-economic status, gender, age, etc. Group insurance plans have highly affordable premium rates, and the coverage is basic, but it serves the purpose of protecting employees or group members with life insurance. Under a group insurance plan, the policyholder is not the group member by the organisation that also pays the premiums.

Under such group insurance plans, each member of the group is covered for a sum assured that is decided by the organisation, and as long as the premiums are paid, each of the members is protected by the life cover. Hence, in case any of the members were to meet with an unfortunate eventuality, the sum assured they are covered for will be paid out to their family, which will help the aggrieved sustain themselves.

If a member of the group leaves the organisation during the policy term, this insurance policy ceases to cover them. This is the main reason people choose to have individual insurance coverage even though their organisation may provide group insurance plans. If the group insurance plan has maturity benefits, they are paid out to the employee on their retirement from the same organisation as part of their gratuity benefits.


Mr Rajan did not have an individual life insurance policy for quite a few years. However, his organisation provided a group life insurance cover for him and other employees. Under this plan, each group member was covered for Rs 5 Lakh. Hence, if something unfortunate happened to Mr Rajan, his family would be financially protected by the sum assured from the group life insurance coverage. As for his employer, the premiums under a group life insurance plan proved to be quite affordable.

Types of Group Insurance Plans

Group insurance plans are of two types:

  • Contributory

    Under the contributory group insurance plan, the group members pay the full or partial premium towards the policy to enjoy the benefits of the life insurance cover. Under these plans, some employers may deduct some amount of the insurance premium from the employee’s salary as the premium.

  • Non-contributory

    In this type of group insurance plan, the employees or group members do not pay the premiums towards the policy to enjoy the benefits of the life insurance cover. Here, the employer pays the premium for the employee's insurance cover, thus making it a non-contributory cover. 

Combo Plans

A combo insurance policy is a comprehensive insurance plan that offers you the benefit of a Unit-Linked Insurance Plan, a savings plan, and a life insurance cover. Such plans consist of two or life insurance policies under a single solution and can help you create a complete financial plan with this solution. At the end of the policy term, you can avail of a guaranteed return on your investment.

A combo insurance plan is not only flexible in terms of the policy term and the premium payment term but also lets you choose how you would like to receive the payouts on the returns. With a Tata AIA Life Insurance combo plan, you can choose between regular income or endowment options.

Since your insurance, savings, and investment needs can change throughout your life, a combo plan can save you from the hassle of getting three different life insurance plans to cover your varying insurance needs. A single combo policy can be much more cost-effective and also save you a lot of time. Moreover, managing premium payments for multiple plans can be cumbersome, and that is something you can avoid by paying a single premium under a combo plan.


Mr Sudhakar purchased a life insurance plan, a ULIP, and a savings plan to target all of his insurance needs. However, over the course of time, he realised that not only was it getting difficult to keep track of the premium payments but that the policy tenure of all three plans was not in sync with his life goals.

On the other hand, Mr Prabhakar chose a combo insurance plan which helped him with a life cover, his investments as well as long-term savings. All he had to do was choose a policy term and the premium payment term of his choice and pay a single premium for all three policies. This turned out to be cheaper than having to pay for three policies, and at the end of the policy term, Mr Prabhakar enjoyed regular income payout from his combo plan, as per his choice.

Types of Combo Plans

Tata AIA Life Insurance offers a secure insurance plan, which gives you the benefits of a Unit-Linked Insurance Plan, a savings plan and a life insurance cover under one solution:

  • The ULIP policy of the combo plan helps you create an investment plan through your choice of funds available under the policy. With the help of the market-linked returns on the ULIP plan, you can plan your future investments or major financial goals and fulfil your family's financial needs.

  • The savings policy under a combo plan offers guaranteed returns on the policy when you save your money systematically over the long term. The guaranteed returns added to the returns from the ULIP plan can be useful for fulfiling any major financial commitments you and your family may have over the long term.

  • While investing and saving your wealth with the combo plan, you can simultaneously enjoy life insurance coverage without having to buy another insurance policy. In case you do not survive the policy term, the financial needs of your family will be secured by the guaranteed sum assured paid out as a death benefit.

How to Choose the Right Life Insurance Plan?

Here are some ways how to select a life insurance policy in India:

  • Assess your life insurance goals

    Before you purchase a life insurance plan, it is advisable to map out your goals and financial plan so that you can decide which life insurance policy will help you meet your needs. Any major expenses, medical expenses, your family’s daily sustenance, and others are the factors that will need to be considered.

  • Identify the Type of Life Insurance Policy you Need

    If you are looking for simple life insurance coverage, a term plan is a good pick, while a savings plan helps save money over the long term. Similarly, if you have certain investment goals, then a ULIP policy would be a good choice for a life insurance policy. And if you want a retirement plan, then you can go for an annuity plan.

  • Sum Assured/Coverage Amount

    The sum assured or the total coverage offered by the policy is important as you would want to ensure that your needs, as well as your family’s needs, can be taken care of. In case of your untimely death, the death benefit sum assured should be able to keep your family financially secure for the years to come.

  • Compare Several Plans

    Buying a life cover insurance policy should not be a hurried decision. Take time to compare the insurance plans so that you can compare all the benefits, features, and exclusions of all policies, and then take a call on which one you should pick. By comparing policies, you can easily carry out a cost-benefit analysis which can be helpful.

  • Claim Settlement Ratio

    The insurance provider you buy your life insurance policy from should have a high claim settlement ratio. This will indicate that the insurance provider will be able to settle your claims on time and in full in case of an unfortunate situation. Low claim settlement ratios can lead to unpaid and delayed claims.

  • Add Suitable Riders

    You can add at least one or a few riders to your life insurance policy. Though the life insurance coverage is sufficient for you and your family, a rider provides additional coverage for specific emergencies for a nominal premium. That way, you can be protected against an emergency without disturbing your policy.

When Do You Need Life Insurance Riders?

  • Changes in Life Stage

    Your insurance coverage may be enough for your needs but keep it aside for other purposes such as taking care of your family or your child’s education. In case of a medical emergency, you can add a rider to your policy on the policy anniversary, providing additional coverage against such events.

  • Enhancing your coverage

    If you feel that a certain foreseeable emergency cannot be tackled by your life insurance sum assured alone, then you should add your choice of riders to your policy. With an appropriate rider, you will be able to receive coverage against a health emergency or a critical illness without disturbing the base sum assured.

  • Family History of Critical Illness

    In case you are aware of your family’s medical history and want to ensure that a medical emergency does not drain your savings or life insurance sum assured, then it would be advisable to opt for a critical illness cover that can protect you against any of the listed critical illnesses under the insurance rider.

  • Risky Occupation

    A health rider that covers hospitalisation costs, as well as major and minor accidental injuries, can be a wise option if you work in a high-risk profession such as mining, diving, construction, etc. That way, in case of an unfortunate mishap, the hospitalisation costs can be covered with the rider.

    Choose a Rider that Best Suits your Needs

    While there are many life insurance riders, you will not need to add all of them to your policy in one go. First, choose which rider is most suitable for your needs, and then if you feel the need to include another rider in your insurance policy, you can do so in the upcoming policy year.

  • Clock Icon
    Choose a Rider Which is Pocket Friendly

    Riders come at an additional but nominal premium which is convenient as you can still keep your policy premiums affordable. Some riders may be more expensive than others, but if you choose only the ones based on your needs, you can avoid expensive premiums.

  • Boy with a cap
    Check the Rider Terms and Conditions

    Riders also have terms and conditions such as their term not exceeding that of the base policy, how much they payout and so on. When choosing an insurance rider, take a look at these clauses so that when you need to use the rider, you should be able to get the most out of it.
