“Everyone wants to create wealth, but wealth creation does not happen by chance or accident. It needs a Plan. Wealthsurance™ Milestone Plan, our flagship product, offers such a plan, which is very flexible and can be customised to an individual’s needs. The beauty of the Plan is that it can be insured not only against risk of death but against 17 major diseases, hospitalisation, disability, accidental injuries etc so that you can feel confident that your financial goals can be reached despite the surprises life may throw up.” said Mr G V Nageswara Rao, MD and CEO, IDBI Federal Life Insurance.
IDBI Federal Life Insurance Co Ltd is a joint-venture of IDBI Bank, India’s premier development and commercial bank, Federal Bank, one of India’s leading private sector banks and Ageas, a multinational insurance giant based out of Europe.
“WealthsuranceTM Milestone Plan”, our flagship product, is a unique combination that aims to help people reach their important goals in life with full confidence. The Plan not only allows its policyholder to invest according to their changing risk appetite; it also provides a host of insurance benefits to protect them against uncertainties, so that they don’t have to break their investment to meet sudden financial demands and their money can keep compounding. The insurance benefits offered by the Plan include Major Diseases Benefit in which lump-sum cash amount up to Rs. 20 lakhs is paid upon diagnosis of any of 17 specified major diseases. These include heart attack, coronary bypass surgery, cancer, stroke, paralysis, coma, brain tumor, renal failure, major organ transplant etc. Another benefit is Hospital Cash Benefit in which daily cash benefit up to a maximum of Rs. 5000 per day will be paid for each day of hospitalisation, irrespective of the amount actually spent. The claim process is simple since no bills have to be submitted but only proof of hospitalisation. Other benefits offered include accidental death and disablement benefit and waiver of all future premiums upon death or disablement. Mr. Rao added.
