1. I am already having a health policy. Why do I need a personal accident policy?
You still need a personal accident policy because accidents are likely to happen both inside and outside home. There will be factors which are not covered in the health policy and hence to avoid any kind of financial stress during the recovery of accident or unfortunate death, we will take care of the finances..
2. I want to know that if my wife is a home- maker, is she still eligible? Also can I get my parents and children covered under the same policy?
Why not? Your wife is eligible for personal accident policy coverage under you as accidents can happen anytime; even at home. Fifty percent of the sum insured can be given in case of any mishap solely due to accident. You can also opt for your children’s coverage under your policy cover which will be up to twenty five percent of the sum insured by you. Well, moving ahead to the coverage for parents, that cannot be included in your insurance. They will have to take the personal accident policy individually.
3. Who is going to decide on the compensation of the sum after an accident for any kind of injury or disablement? Is there any kind of tax benefit which I can get through this policy?
All the details of compensation will be provided in the terms and condition page of the policy which you can go through before going ahead with the policy. Also, there is no tax benefit related with the personal accident policy.
