Term Insurance

POSTED BY tarandeep singh ON October 30, 2012 2:53 pm COMMENTS (6)

I need to buy term insurance for me and my wife, each with a cover of 1Cr with a term of 30 years.

I have got a chance to visit website http://www.myinsuranceclub.com and saw comparisons of different products.

Aegon is the cheapest, but in one of jagoinvester.com article https://www.jagoinvestor.com/2010/12/term-insurance-plans-comparisions-india.html, aegon’s claim settlement percentage is lowest.

should this be a concern before i buy aegon for term insurance, instead of buying it from big players like LIC, ICICI, HDFC etc..

Please help.

  1. Dear Tarandeep, what’s your current situation? had you purchased any cover or not? How did you arrive at the figure of 1Cr? Was it any calculation or just your comfort no.?

    Please clarify.



  2. Dear Tarandeep,

    Yes, Claims performance of a company is one of the most important things you should consider before choosing a term plan. And we (ICICI Prudential Life Insurance) have a healthy claims record as cited in the following news articles http://bit.ly/HejDZA andhttp://bit.ly/HTbw7S.

    Other things you may consider before choosing a term plan are:
    1. Service reputation of the brand
    2. Convenience offered in terms of medical checkups, online sign up/ payments and services

    Thanks Manish for your prompt inputs. It helped.

    Would you recommend Aegon religare as a company for term insurance needs. In other words, do you have trust on this company with your knowledge and experience.

    thanks in advance

    1. I would personally be comfortable with it . However that answer should not help you much , because you are not me 🙂

  5. All the companies in the start of their business have low claim settlement ratio. Do you want to move ahead with that company or not ,is your personal choice . but if you mention everything properly and give right information while taking up the term insurance, there should not be any issue later.
