Term Insurance Scheme

Product subscription / features

Group Term Insurance Plan provides life insurance coverage to the member of a group, such as the employees of an employer. The amount of coverage of each member is determined with reference to either his designation or salary or employment category or some other similar variable.

What need does it fulfill?

This plan provides insurance protection to the members of a group at a very affordable minimum possible cost, 24 hours coverage around the world.

By promoting a sense of financial security amongst the employees it contributes to improving the working environment for the employer resulting in higher productivity.

In most cases the employer is legally obliged to provide insurance cover to his employees. This plan helps the employer to fulfill this requirement.

Premiums are tax-deductible for the employer. Total premium under group term insurance is lower as compared to sum of premium of all policies if issued individually to each life, due to savings in expenses.

The Benefits Of Plan

On death of any insured member the sum assured on his life is paid for the benefit of his surviving family. This benefit is payable regardless of the total number of the deaths even if the total amount paid out exceeds the total premiums received under the policy.

However, if in any three-year period State Life earns a net profit on any policy, then some share in the profit is passed on to the policyholder, depending upon the total number of members in the scheme. This share can go up to 90% in case of large sized schemes.
