Is it advisable to take riders such as Critical Illness benefit or accidental disability along with term insurance or get them covered in health insurance? What are pros & Cons of getting them covered in term insurance vis-à-vis health insurance? I want these coverages but seeking guidance where it is advisable to get it covered under term insurance or health insurance.

Thank you in advance.

I recommend to take it as rider with term insurance as per reasons below :

1. Life Insureres are managing large customer base hence offers little economical rates for critical illness and personal accident . They offer these rates to increase pool of customers .

2. Life insurance is not indemnity product hence rider also fall in this category .

3. Claim settlement of life insurers are over 95% and they are more worried for their image .

4. Even scope of critical illness as well as PAB is far more .

However , in general insurance you can always buy critical illness and term as independent product . But as rider you will have to buy term insurance . Thus your overall cost become more .
