Let’s Discuss the Features and Benefits of PNB Metlife Grameen Ashray in Detail

This PNB Metlife insurance plan comes with exciting features that you can check below.

What is the Sum Assured Under the Policy?

The minimum sum assured under the policy stands at INR 5,000 while it can go up to INR 50,000. You can select the coverage amount as per your needs.

What is the Policy Term?

The policy term under the PNB Metlife Grameen Ashray plan stands at a maximum of five years.

Death Benefit

If an insured person dies during the policy term (provided the policy is in full force and all due premiums have been paid), the nominee will get the sum assured as per the policy schedule. This plan doesn’t provide any maturity benefits.

The Premium of the Policy

PNB Metlife Grameen Ashray offers two premium payment options – Single Premium and Regular Premium. On choosing the single premium plan option, policyholders will need to pay the premium at the inception of the policy. For the regular premium plan option, you will need to pay the premium every year on the due date. An individual needs to pay the regular premium amount on or before the due date mentioned in the policy. Regular premiums received before the due date will be credited to the policy on the due date. You can also change the frequency of the premium payment.

Grace Period of 90 Days

The policy also offers a grace period of 90 days from the due premium date within which policyholders can pay the premium without any additional interest. During this period, the policy will remain in force for all the insured events.

If an individual doesn’t pay the premium during the grace period, the policy will lapse with effect from the date of the first unpaid premium. In such a case, you will not get any claim benefits. However, you can reinstate your policy later to get the benefits.
