If you are interested in any of the above-mentioned term insurance plans, do check the below eligibility criteria before you proceed to it:
You can avail of the following rider benefits if you pay an additional premium:
The premium of Kotak Term Insurance is based on the following factors –
Age – The age of the policyholder impacts the premium greatly; the sooner you apply for it, the lower the premium you will have and vice versa. As the premium once decided remains fixed during the entire policy term unlike other insurance products, locking a deal at the earliest saves you more.
Smoking Habits – If you are a smoker, Kotak Life Insurance Company will charge more premium than that from a non-smoker. People with smoking habits are more likely to fall ill compared to those not addicted to such stuff. This becomes a difference between the premium of smokers and non-smokers.
Existing Health Conditions – Your existing health conditions can also influence the insurer to set the premium for your term plan. In case you have had some health issues, the premium will go up. Also, be honest while disclosing your health conditions to the insurer through the application form. If you don’t furnish your health-related details correctly, the insurer might reject your insurance claim later if it finds in its medical investigation that such conditions existed before accepting a policy.
Place of Residence – It also impacts the premium that Kotak Life Insurance will charge from you. People living in posh locations can get lower premiums than those living in far-flung locations.
Kotak Term Insurance premiums can be paid on the website of the insurer.
Upon successful payment, you will receive an SMS and email confirming the same.
You can also fill the ECS mandate form at the bank branch and submit the same along with a cancelled cheque to the concerned official there. So on the due date, the premium amount will get debited automatically from your bank account.
You can also register Kotak Term Insurance Premium as a biller at BillDesk while using net banking of Kotak Mahindra Bank or some other. A few days before the due date, you will get an intimation about premium payment. If you have activated automatic payment at BillDesk, the payment will go through automatically. If not, you will need to pay via net banking by going to the biller section.
If there is a financial emergency, you can surrender your term plan if you have chosen a single premium payment option.
Surrender Value = 75% x (single paid premium) x ((policy term – 1)/Policy Term ) x (Outstanding policy term / policy term).
For Limited premium payment option
Surrender Value = 75% x (total paid premium) x ((policy term – PPT)/Policy Term ) x Outstanding Policy Term/policy term).
