Add-on Benefits of ICICI Pru iProtect Smart Plan

This plan comes with two major add-on benefits to offer financial protection to the insured and his/her family. Given below is a detailed explanation of these benefits. Let's learn about them.

  1. Premium Waiver Benefit

    Under this benefit, all the future premium amounts of the policyholder get waived off if in case he/she becomes disabled due to an accident. The future premiums are borne by the company and the cover stays intact till the policy term. Please note that permanent disability includes blindness, incompetent to climb or lift or write anything properly, and can't even bend knees.

    Let's take the help of the example given below to understand better.

    Naman Joshi, a 28 years old healthy person buys the iProtect Smart to ensure the financial protection of his family members if in case he dies suddenly. He opts for a life cover of Rs. 1 crore for a policy term of 30 years. One day while returning home from work, he meets with an accident that leads to permanent injury in his legs and he becomes unable to move, climb or bend. After receiving intimation about the injury from Naman, the company waived off all his future premiums and the life insurance cover stayed in force till the policy term.
  2. Terminal illness Benefit

    Under this benefit, complete coverage is provided to the insured person if he/she gets diagnosed with a terminal illness including AIDS as well. ICICI Pru iProtect Smart plan pays the AIDS-infected policyholders also.

    For example:

    Let's assume that Aditya buys the iProtect Smart term policy of Rs. 50 lakhs in 2015 and after five years he gets diagnosed with a terminal illness. He informed the company about the same and the company provided him with the whole coverage amount. With the help of the cover amount, Aditya cleared all his liabilities like home loans and other financial debts to make sure that his family won't suffer in the future when he is no longer around.

    For example- Yash, a senior analyst of 35 years has purchased a cover of Rs. 1 crore iProtect smart insurance policy along with an accidental death benefit of Rs. 50 lakhs as optional cover. After ten years from the date of purchase, he succumbs to death due to a road accident. The company on the claim intimation by the nominee will pay Rs. 1.5 crores in a lump sum.

Death Benefit Payout Options

There are four types of death benefit payout options available in this plan. Customers can opt for any of these payout options depending upon the way in which they desire to provide the payment of the coverage amount to their family members in the future. Given below is a brief explanation of all these options. Let's take a look at them.

  1. Lumpsum Payment

    The nominee of the policyholder will receive the complete coverage amount in one go or lump sum after death.

  2. Regular income

    Let's take an example to illustrate this option- Prerna has taken a life cover of Rs 2 crore and has opted for regular income as a death payout option. After her demise, the nominee will obtain a regular income of 10% (same in all cases) on the sum insured for 10 years i.e. 20 lakhs (10% of 2,00,00,000). Whereas the monthly payout would be @ 0.80% of 2 crores i.e. 1,60,000.

  3. Increasing income

    In this option, the benefit amount will keep on ascending following each year. The benefit amount will be determined on the sum insured. The first-year income should be 10% of the sum insured which will increase by 10% every year. Let's say, a life cover is bought for Rs 6 crores and after the death of the policyholder, the first-year income must be 60 lakhs (10% of 6,00,00,000). After implementing an increase of 10% in the first-year income, the second-year income would be Rs 66,00,000. This process will repeat till the completion of 10 years.

  4. Lumpsum plus income

    The beneficiaries of the policyholder will get the benefit of both lump sum and fixed regular incomes on the sum insured. If the total coverage is 2.4 crores where the lump sum amount paid is 60 lakhs and the regular income would be 10% of 1.2 crores i.e. 12,00,000 every year and the monthly income would be Rs. 1 lakh.
