Buy Term Plan Now What are the Documents Required for Term Insurance Plan?

It is tough to predict the medical emergencies that you may face in your life. With the stressful lifestyles we lead, we put our body through severe turmoil daily. While being precautionary can help you preserve your health, it will not save you from the high healthcare costs incurred due to a medical emergency.

With the help of a Term Insurance Plan, you can ensure that your family is protected from financial challenges when you are not around.

What is Term Insurance?

A Term Insurance plan is an insurance coverage policy that provides you with optimum life cover during the term of the policy. The sum assured under a term plan will be paid as a death benefit in the event of the policyholder’s unfortunate demise. If the policyholder survives the term of the policy, they can either opt for extending the coverage or forego the policy. In exchange for the coverage, you will need to pay premiums in periodic intervals for the tenure of the policy.

Just like the policy makes your life simple, getting the policy can be seamless as well if you have all the documents required for term insurance ready. Providing all the term insurance documents required during the purchase can ensure a seamless process for getting the policy.

List of Documents that are required for a Term Plan

1. Identity proof: Buying an insurance plan would require an official photo identity as a countermeasure against widespread identity theft and fraud. It can be common documents like:

  • PAN card
  • Voter ID card
  • Aadhaar card
  • Passport

2. Address proof: An official proof of a permanent address is an essential document for buying a term insurance policy as it prevents insurance fraud. Documents that can be used are

  • Aadhar Card
  • Passport
  • Electricity bill
  • Telephone/Mobile bill
  • Ration card

3. Age proof: A proof of age is an important document for a term insurance plan as your premium amount is influenced by your age at the time of policy purchase. Some of the documents that can be used for age proof are

  • Birth certificate
  • School/college leaving certificate
  • Marriage certificate

4. Medical reports: The insurance premium you pay and the sum assured will heavily depend on your medical health. This is why all of your medical reports are an important part of your documentation.

5. Photographs: You have to submit a specific number of passport size photographs for verification.
