You can protect the interests of your loved ones in your absence. Here are a few things to be kept in mind to ensure that your claim is paid to your family.
- Correct Details
Fill up the application form yourself and ensure that you provide the correct details asked by the insurance company.
- Medical Tests
Take a cover that allows the insurance company to assess your health through medical examination. The cost of medical tests is borne by the insurance company.
- Policy Fine Print
Read the terms and conditions carefully. Ensure that your current health, occupation or lifestyle habits do not exclude you from getting the policy benefits.
- Timely Notifications
Notify the insurance company if your health changes during the application process before the policy is issued. Also, keep your insurance company updated about your contact details.
- Avoiding Policy Lapse
Pay your premium on time to ensure that your policy benefits do not lapse.
- Sharing Information
Keep your nominees/beneficiaries informed about the policy, its details, and the claim process.
- Nominee Information
Keep nominee details updated in your policy. Remember you can change/add nominees at any point in time.
