There are various parameters that one must consider before buying a term insurance plan, one of them being the claim settlement ratios of the various insurers selling term policies. Term insurance plans promise death benefits to dependents in return for very low premium amounts from policyholders. A higher claim settlement ratio means that the insurer is more likely to process the claim and hand over death benefits to the nominee(s) of the insured, thus, serving the purpose of paying for term insurance.
