    Riders/Add-On Plans – Additional coverage under the Guaranteed Money Back Plan

In the event of the policyholder’s accidental death, the insurer will pay 100% of the Rider Sum Assured to the nominee. Also, if the accident causes a permanent disability, the life assured is eligible to claim up to 10 bi-annual instalments. Each instalment will be equal to the total Rider Sum Assured times 10%. The minimum sum assured is Rs.10,000 and the maximum sum assured is Rs.50 lakh.

    • SUD Life Family Income Benefit Rider – Traditional

    This rider can help secure one’s family financially, in case the life assured member passes away during the policy term. The minimum rider sum assured is Rs.1 lakh and the maximum rider sum assured is Rs.50 lakh. You will have to choose the rider sum assured while purchasing the rider. Upon the policyholder’s untimely demise, the nominee will receive 10% of the sum assured every year, for 10 consecutive years. The benefit will be payable in the form of a fixed monthly income.

    Exclusions – What the Guaranteed Money Back Plan doesn’t cover?

    This policy has a suicide clause. If the policyholder, in a sane or insane state of mind, commits suicide within 1 year of purchasing the policy or reviving the policy, the insurer will pay back 80% of the total premiums that were paid by the policyholder, to the nominee. No other benefit will be payable.
