Types of Life Insurance Policies in India

The life insurance sector is one of the fastest growing finance related segments in India. There are many different products, each with a variety of offerings. Right from fueling investment needs to meeting different financial goals, they come with many objectives for the investor. Here are a few common types of covers, including whole life and term insurance policy.

1. Term Insurance or Term Plan

These are the most basic and affordable form of Life Insurance. Term plans provide life cover with no profits/ savings component. The premiums are much cheaper in a term insurance than other Life Insurance plans. If the policyholder expires during the policy term, a fixed quantum of money (sum assured) is paid to his/ her beneficiaries. If the policyholder survives the entire policy term, no payout will be provided.


An individual non-smoker male who is looking for a term life plan of Rs.1 crore cover, will cost him approximately Rs.6, 800 to Rs.10, 500 per year.

25 years40 yearsRs.1 CroreRs.6,800 – Rs.10,500

Best known for: High sum assured (coverage) at a low premium.

Benefit of Term Plan: In case of an untimely death of the breadwinner, family is supported with an enormous amount of money – sum assured, which helps them to replace the loss of the income caused due to the breadwinner’s death. Moreover, the money could be utilized to pay off loan, monthly household expenses, child’s education, child’s marriage, etc.

2. Whole Life Policy

Unlike a term insurance, the policy is not defined in a whole life policy, so the policyholder can enjoy the life cover throughout his/her life. By paying regular premiums, the policyholder gets a complete life cover. The policyholder needs to pay regular premiums until he expires, and upon that total amount, the corpus is paid to his family. The whole life policy expires only when any eventuality occurs as there is no pre-defined tenure.


20 yearsRs.3 lakhRs.10,000- Rs.15,000Guaranteed Sum Assured + non-guaranteed bonus (if any) + non-guaranteed terminal bonus (if any)

Best known for: Life coverage for whole life.

Benefit of Whole Life Plan: Lifelong protection to the insured and an opportunity to leave behind a legacy for heirs.

3. Endowment Plan

An endowment plan is different from a term plan in terms of maturity benefit. Unlike a term plan, an endowment plan pays out the sum assured along with profits in case of an eventuality during the policy term as well as on survival of insured. The profits are the result of investing the premiums in the asset market. Another difference is, endowment plans come with higher fees and premiums for paying out sum assured with profits in both scenarios – death or maturity.


30 yearsRs.10 lakhRs.20,000 – Rs.25,000Depending on the Bonus at the time of maturity.

Best known for: Long-term saving option for people with much lower risk appetite for investment.

Benefit of Endowment Plan: Long-term financial planning and an opportunity to earn returns on maturity.

4. Unit Linked Insurance Plan

Unit Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP) is linked to markets and thus, it is a form of the traditional endowment plan in which the sum assured is paid on death/maturity. However, in ULIP, you have the liberty to choose the investments’ allocation in stock/debt markets and its value is captured by the net asset value (NAV). Also, ULIP is a combination of insurance and investment, whereas mutual fund is a pure investment avenue.


20 yearsRs.2 lakhRs.20,000Depending on the fund value at the time of maturity.

Best known for: Long-term investment option with much more flexibility to invest.

Benefit of ULIP: Invest money as per your risk appetite. You have the option to invest either in equity, debt or in hybrid funds through the life insurance company with complete transparency.

5. Money Back Policy

This policy too is a form of the endowment plan, however, it gives periodic payments to the beneficiary over the policy term. The insurer pays a portion of the sum assured at regular intervals. In case of policyholder’s death over the term of the policy, the full sum assured is given to the beneficiary. If the policyholder survives the policy term, he/ she receives the balance sum assured.


20 yearsRs.5 lakhRs.20,000 – Rs.25,000A percentage of Sum Assured paid on regular intervalsAccrued bonuses/Guaranteed Money Back + Coverage

Best known for: Short-term investment product to meet short-term financial goals.

Benefit of Money Back Plan: Short-term financial planning and an opportunity to earn returns on maturity.

6. Children’s Policy

These policies can be obtained in the name of the policyholder’s child. It is beneficial only for the child and provides a financial assistance to the parents when their child reaches a particular age of his/ her life.


20 yearsRs.18 lakhRs.1 lakhLump sum payouts on regular intervalMaturity benefit + guaranteed returns + non-guaranteed accumulated bonus (if any)

Best known for: Building funds for your child’s future.

Benefit of Child Plan: Helps in fulfilling your child’s dream.

 7. Annuity Plan

It is similar to a term insurance policy and aims at covering policyholder’s income loss. Post-retirement, the regular income source ceases to exist for an individual (mainly for private job holders) and it doesn’t take long to exhaust benefits like gratuity or provident funds. At that time, annuity plan provides regular income in the form of pension to the policyholder for safeguarding his/ her retirement. To enjoy financial freedom post-retirement, it is best to get an annuity plan.


In case of an unfortunate event, life assured passes away during the policy term – immediate payment is payable to the nominee by the insurance company. Death benefit will be higher of coverage or fund value or 105% of premiums paid. Vesting Benefit will be payable if the life assured survives the maturity age. In which case, payout will be fund value which has to be utilized for buying an annuity.

Best known for: Long-term savings and retirement planning.

Benefit of Retirement Plan: Helps in building corpus for retirement.
