The Sampoorn Suraksha plan by SBI Life comes four key options, which the policyholder can choose between to improve the coverage of their policy. Here are all of them mentioned below:
|Terminal Illness Benefit||A Terminal Illness Benefit is an accelerator which comes along with the main death cover under this policy. If this option is availed, a member will lose their cover under the main policy. Sum assured for this option ranges from 5% to 100% of the total death benefit offered. However, there is a cap on the claimable amount. In the case of voluntary schemes, the cap stands at Rs.25 lakhs while the same for compulsory schemes is Rs.50 lakhs.|
|Spouse Cover Benefit||This benefit option is available only if a group contains more than 250 members. Under this option, an organisation can provide death cover to the spouses of members. There’s a cap on the amount payable on this option as well, which stands at Rs.15 lakhs for Compulsory employer-employee groups and Rs.10 lakhs for voluntary employer-employee groups.|
|Death Benefit||This benefit option, if chosen, allows a policy member’s nominees to receive the sum assured upon death of the said member. Under this option, the nominees can choose to receive the payouts in monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, and yearly basis for a maximum period of 5 years.|
|Convertibility||This option allows a member in an employer-employer group to choose any individual policy offered by SBI Life. What this means is that a member can break out of the group policy without needing to pay any additional charges and can still walk out with a new policy in their name. The only restriction under this option is that a member needs to meet the age requirement to own a policy he/she is looking to own. To avail this option, a member must have left the company in full health without any misconduct or fraud charges, and due to any illness.|
The Sampoorn Suraksha Plan by SBI Life comes with a number of useful riders, which help organisations increase the scope of the coverage they get. These riders provide an additional sum assured on top of the base plan’s offering. Here are all of the riders mentioned below:
Note: Under the additional option, if a person assured survives for more than 30 days after contracting a critical illness, the rider sum assured will be paid. For the accelerated option, the rider sum assured will be paid if and when a critical illness is contracted.
