Hi Experts,

Please advise on the riders which one should mandatorily have in a term plan?

Is it advisable to add critical illness rider in Term Plan? Are there any other riders one should have in a term plan if one is a healthy individual or should rather have a comprehensive mediclaim policy than adding multiple riders in term plan?

Hello Aditya,

A critical illness rider solves for the loss of earning, and various losses/expenses that are not covered by a regular mediclaim policy. For instance, one may have to curtail his work hours, take a break or quit altogether due to a serious illness.

It is not a substitute for a low health insurance cover. You must have adequate health insurance and a CI cover.

We have covered Critical Illness deeply in our free eBook on Critical Illness - which we strongly recommend you go through. This will give you a holistic perspective to make a decision.

Regarding what riders you must choose in a Term Plan - would like to know if you have ever tried Beshak TruMatch - it will give you the most detailed recommendations on products, coverage, riders, and customizations and also share the best matching plans for your unique needs.

Hi Aditya,

While buying term plan adding riders is optional.

I Would suggest the following riders :

  1. Accidental Death Benefit
  2. Waiver of premium on Critical illness diagnosis
  3. Income benefit on Accidental disability
  4. Critical Illnees ( This can be purchased with any general or health Insurance company )

I would be happy to serve you with life insurance if intrested schedual a free call with me .

Thanks & Regards
