shifting from Traditional term insurance policy to online term policy

POSTED BY Venkateswara Rao K ON November 19, 2012 5:08 pm COMMENTS (3)


I have traditional term insurance from SBIlife. I have been paying the premiums for last 5 years. Now I am looking to increase my insurance cover and decided to take online term insurance. I have zeroed down to HDFC life as their claim settlment ratio is good and premium is reasonable for the amount I am looking for. 

I am just thinking how it would be if I stop paying the premiums of traditional policy by increasing the cover of online term insurance. I am not able to identify the real pros and cons of this move. I am seeking suggestion from Jago investors and their club. 


Thanks & Regards,


Venkat K

  1. As suggested by Ramesh

    Better take a term plan online and once its all set, then you can discard your old term plan , I am sure the premium you are paying for it will be way above the current premiums.

    Thanks Ramesh for your reply. It is pure term insurance.

    First get your online term policy and only then think about removing any other policy.

    Is your SBI policy a pure term policy or an endowment / money back policy? In simpler terms, would you get money back from your policy or not?
