Term Insurance 1414 views March 25, 2020

A term plan return with a premium, commonly known as TROP refers to a contract between the applicant and the life insurance company. Under this agreement, the applicant has to pay a specific amount of money annually for a fixed period so as to receive a guaranteed amount of money in the event of death during the policy term. This works like a standard insurance plan, guaranteeing financial protection to the family during an eventuality. The benefit of the return of premium as a survival asset makes it distinct from other policies.

Who all can benefit from this plan?

The premium rate of the policy is determined by the age of the buyer. The minimum age to enter the policy is 18 years whereas the maximum age can be up to 65 years. Except for the age factor, term plan with premium return can be enjoyed by everyone irrespective of whether the individuals are married, single or have children.

  1. If you are single, you can provide financial protection to not only the loved ones but can also secure your future in a long-run.

  3. If you are married with kids, it becomes a responsibility for you to create a financial backup plan in case of an emergency.
