    Aviva Protection Plans

    Every individual should consider buying a life insurance policy to secure the future of his/her family. Protection plans are offered purely for protection and do not come with the savings or investment component. They are one of the simplest types of life insurance plans in the market and are available at affordable prices.

    Most term insurance plans are for a short duration of time. Individuals can choose the policy term and if they happen to pass away during the term, the nominee will receive the death benefit. While most term insurance plans do not offer a maturity benefit on survival of the policy term, a few term insurance plans offered by Aviva Life Insurance come with a maturity benefit option.
