    1.The charges obviously are more, and the reason would be shashank has taken it offline.

    2. The word “Investigate” used in my second point meant for investiagation in finding out any possiblity/excuse for denying the claim, not for investigation which is done for confirmation on the declaration of any diesease.or illness.

    3. yes, the efforts would be more, but the procedure would almost be the same, so the efforts would not more than 1.3X(x is the effort for one claim).
    But my point meant that, it may be that one company can take too long to give the claim amount may be due to their services or any other reason.
    and if this is the case, the waiting period for getting the claimed amount would be longer.

    Hi Shashank,
    Its Good to have two term insurance. (For Example in your case, you have splitted your sum assured money..1 Crore to 50 + 50)., Below is the reason.

    1. In case of unfortunate of insured person, providing a One crore to the nominee is a very big headache , and they will forcefully find out any of reason so that they can deny the claim.

    2. But For 50L, they will not investigate and try to deny the claim as compared to processing the claim of 1 Crore.

    3. It may be that the processing time length for the claim in one of the company is too much.

    1. Ramesh says:

      All of your reasons are unjustified.

      1. In case of unfortunate demise. Term insurance is for that specific and lone purpose only and not for any other. And they are correspondingly charging more for a 1C insurance than for a 50L insurance.

      2. If you have provided wrong data or kept undeclared data which was important in the underwriting process, they will investigate whether the amount is 50L or 1C or 2C.

      3. By going for 2 co with 50L, the nominee will have to double the efforts of getting money, as compared to a single 1C policy.

    Hi Ashal

    You guessed it right. I have gone for the split considering claim settlement ratio.

    Can you plz explain how to go about 1C cover + 5L cover split between 2 insurers ?
    I mean which insurer to choose for 1C cover and which one to choose for 5L cover.


  4. Dear Shashank, why are you going for a 50+50L split? any reason? If the claim settlement ratio is your answer. My take ‘ll be to opt for a 1C cover + 5L cover split between these 2 insurers.
