Postponed vs Rejected policy status in Term Insurance

28 Nov, 2022 by  jignesh

I am 34 & had applied for the term insurance this month through Max Life. I paid up the premium amount & underwent medical examination. Today, they informed me that the policy has been moved in postponed state as I am under treatment (for epilepsy) currently.

1) What is postponed state, Am I still eligible for policy from them or I should consider this as policy rejection.

2) Will my family get insured amount during claim if I get policy from them.

3) Should I try in other company if they are postponing for some duration,

4) What are other alternates to safeguard my family instead of term insurance in my absence?

Dear Jignesh

My comments

1. Postponed means that they will review your case after 6 months . As per current health status , they are not willing to insure you . Reapply after 6 months .

2. Yes ,claim will be given if they accept your case after 6 month and you have made all declarations.

3. Yes , you can try in other company but you need to declare that your case was postponed in Msxlife . Non disclosure of such events can be cause of claim rejection . Pl note that almost all cases of term cover are reinsured and they all treat postponed cases in same way .

4. You can still get cover in saving linked plans like whole life or ULIP . So try insurance through ULIP but make all declarations.

Hope this clarifies
