Kotak e-Term is a pure term life insurance plan offered by Kotak Life Insurance. It is an online term plan, which means you can buy and manage the policy entirely online. The plan provides financial protection to your family in case of your unfortunate death during the policy term.

Features of Kotak e-Term

Kotak e-Term comes with unique features that make it a popular choice.

Affordable Coverage with a High Sum Assured

Kotak e-Term is crafted to deliver extensive coverage at budget-friendly rates. This ensures policyholders can secure substantial financial protection for their loved ones without incurring excessive expenses. Prioritizing cost-effectiveness allows individuals to safeguard their family’s future without imposing undue strain on their financial resources.

Three Plan Options for Flexibility

The plan provides the flexibility to choose from three distinct plan options based on individual needs. Once a plan option is selected at the inception, it remains unchanged throughout the policy term. These options include:

  • Life Option: Sum Assured on Death
  • Life Plus Option: Benefits under Life Option + Accidental Death Benefit
  • Life Secure Option: Benefits under Life Option + Waiver of Future Outstanding Premium on Total and Permanent Disability

Diverse Payout Options

Kotak e-Term offers policyholders three payout options:

Immediate Payout

This is the most straightforward option, where the full sum assured is paid to your nominee in a lump sum immediately after your demise.

Level Recurring Payout

This option provides a regular income to your family after your demise. Lump sum payment of 10% of Sum Assured on death shall be paid immediately at the time of claim settlement. Additional 6% of Sum Assured on death shall be payable immediately at the end of every year for 15 years; the first payment being made one year after the date of death of the life insured. This helps ensure your family has a steady source of income to manage their expenses.

Increasing Recurring Payout

This option aims to address rising living costs. Similar to level recurring payout, the nominee receives 10% of the sum assured on death as a lump sum immediately in case of life insured’s demise. An additional 6% of Sum Assured on death is paid at the end of the first year from date of death. For the following 15 years, the payouts shall increase by 10% each year.

Also note that, with level and increasing recurring payout options, you have the flexibility to receive your annual payment in monthly installments. Monthly payment will be 8.22% of the annual payment, with the first payment starting one month after the date of demise of the life insured.

Option to Exit at Age 60

The plan offers policyholders the flexibility to exit at the age of 60, recognizing that financial priorities may evolve as retirement approaches. You can get back your premiums through Special Exit Value, under your policy, if your policy term is:

  • 40 years: Earlier of the 25th policy year OR during the policy year, when you attain 60 years
  • 40 years: Earlier of the 30th policy year OR during the policy year, when you attain 60 years

This structured exit option allows policyholders to reassess their financial plans and potentially utilize accumulated benefits.

Special Rates for Women and Non-Tobacco Users

Non-tobacco users and women enjoy special premium rates, acknowledging and rewarding healthier lifestyle choices and gender considerations. The discounted rates enhance accessibility and cost-effectiveness for these demographic groups.
