Your brother has Group Insurance with an option to add parents for additional payment.

Please note that Group Insurance is like your rental house, you do not own it . As soon as your brother leave the job , you also loose the benefits of group cover .

I advise you to take a senior citizen plan of Rs 5 lakh from any insurance company .

You will need to pay approx Rs 25000 for sum assured of Rs 5 lakh .

Your brother can also avail additional tax benefit on premium paid for your father as he is already 60 .

Please declare all health condition , there will be waiting period for more existing diseases but it will be in your interest .

Now your parents will be owner of insurance and can feel protected . You can also add super top up of Rs 20 lakh by paying Rs 5000 extra .

So your parents would be insured for rs 25 lakh for Rs 30000 per annum .
