A. N. Shanbhag , February 19, 2002 Competition in the market always proves favourable to the consumer. So it is in the case of life insurance. After what seems like almost an eon, finally the doors of the life insurance sector were thrown open to the private sector players last year. The Finance Act, 2001 has thankfully cleared quite a lot of cobwebs giving a level- playing field to both the sectors. Notable amongst the new entrants is HDFC Standard Life Insurance, a joint venture between the global experience of Standard Life of UK and our own HDFC. Standard Life, founded in 1825 is amongst the forerunners of the insurance industry worldwide, having a presence not only in the UK but also Ireland, Spain, Germany, Austria and Canada. Voted as the 'company of the decade', Standard Life manages assets over US$ 119 billion. HDFC does not need any formal introduction, so strong is its brand already. After having a significant presence in the housing finance, banking and MF industries, this JV marks its foray into the life insurance sector. Private sector players would only be too aware that this is the proverbial first step of the thousand-mile journey that lies up ahead. Contending for a piece of market share with a Goliath that LIC is, will not be an easy task unless they offer qualitative and innovative products at an affordable price. That they would be pulling out all the stops to attract customers is not in doubt. Hence, this is as good a time as any to pay attention and see what is on display.
  30. 30. The strategy Too many options simply confuse the users whereas too few will surely turn them away. HDFC Standard Life has thankfully introduced products with basic premiums serving specific needs of all. Most products have some additional optional value adding benefits at marginal additional premiums. The proponent is free to choose any of the basic products along with none or some of the options as per his needs. Before examining the base products, let us see the options. Accidental Death Benefit (ADB) ADB provides an additional amount equal to the basic sum assured (SA) in case of the death of the policyholder due to an accident, within 90 days of the accident. Critical Illness (CI) Benefit CI provides an additional amount equal to the SA on diagnosis of the any one of the 6 specified critical illnesses --- cancer, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, heart attack, kidney/renal failure, major organ transplant (as recipient) and stroke. The sum assured is payable if the policy holder survives for 30 days after the date of the claim. Double Sum Assured (DSA) Benefit DSA provides an additional amount equivalent to the basic SA in case of the death of the policyholder. Waiver of Premium (WOP) Benefit WOP basically waives the premium in case the policyholder becomes totally disabled. However, the waiver is applicable only during the period of the disability.
  31. 31. Accelerated Sum Assured (ASA) Upon diagnosis of any of the specified six critical illnesses, ASA provides an amount equal to the amount payable on death. These options must be selected at the outset while choosing the product. Now the base. Single Premium Bond This is basically a hybrid of insurance and investment. The life cover is quite low and therefore it functions almost like a deep discount bond. For a single upfront premium (read investment), the policy pays a lump sum (read maturity value) and its tenure of 10, 15, 20 years or more at 5-year intervals. A compound revisionary bonus is declared every year, which would be added to the policy upon its anniversary. The future bonuses though are not guaranteed and are dependent upon the company's experience and the conditions prevalent in the economy. The minimum age for buying the policy is 18 years, the maximum being 70. The minimum SA is fixed at Rs. 25,000, the maximum being Rs. 5,00,000. Normally, a policy acquires a paid up value (and the related surrender value) after premiums for 3 years are paid but in this case the holding period is specified to be just 6 months --- Excellent liquidity indeed! Term Assuranc plan The SA is payable in the case of the death of the policyholder during the term but on survival, there are no maturity benefits. Consequently, the premium rates are absolutely the lowest. This is insurance in its purest form --- highest cover at lowest
  32. 32. cost. There was a crying need for easy availability of this product. HDFC Standard Life deserves kudos to have catered to this need. Amongst the optional benefits listed above, ADB, CI and ASA are available for this plan. Money Back Plan This plan pays periodic cash lump sums during the tenure of the policy. The lump sums, essentially a proportion of the basic SA are paid at 5-year intervals. On survival, the basic SA plus bonus less the cash lump sums paid earlier are provided. However, in the case of the demise of the policyholder, the basic SA plus any bonus is provided to the family. This would be over and above any earlier payouts. The schedule of cash lump sums as a percentage of the basic SA is detailed in the table. Moreover, CI, DSA, ADB and WOP can be opted for if so desired. Endowment Assurance Plan As is normal with all endowments, on the death of the life assured during the term, the beneficiary will get the SA. On survival, the policyholder gets the SA. From amongst the optional benefits, CI, DSA, ADB and the WOP benefit are available along with this plan. The indicative premiums for an SA of Rs. 1 lakh for a male life assured for a period of 20 years are detailed in the table. Loan Cover Term Assurance This is a unique product meant as a safety net in case one has taken a loan to buy a house. It is designed to help the family repay the outstanding loan in the case of the death of the breadwinner. For starters, it provides a lump sum on the death of the life assured during the term of the plan. The difference in this case is that the lump sum is a decreasing percentage of the initial SA. As the loan decreases, as per its payment schedule, the cover under the policy decreases as per its own schedule.
  33. 33. There is a choice of paying the premium in yearly, half-yearly or quarterly modes or even a single one time premium is payable. Amongst the optional benefits, ASA is available along with this plan. Group Term Insurance (GTI) HDFC Standard Life also offers GTI, meant essentially for employees of an organisation. GTI is extremely convenient for an employer as he can take insurance for all or certain categories of employees. All members of a group, subject to some basic conditions are eligible. GTI is used basically to provide life insurance as part of the employee benefits. It can also cover any housing or vehicle loan given by the employer to the employee.To sum A wise man had said that the time to mend the roof is when the sun is shining. This is applicable to life insurance too. Today as the breadwinner you are able to maintain a decent standard of living for yourself and your family. If you want enough bread for the family even after the death of the breadwinner, you should
  34. 34. look at the Single Premium Bond. In other cases, life insurance is an absolute necessity. Have a look at other products. Money Back Plan

The Parliament of India passed the Life Insurance Corporation Act on the 19th of June 1956, and the Life Insurance Corporation of India was created on 1st September, 1956, with the objective of spreading life insurance much more widely and in particular to the rural areas with a view to reach all insurable persons in the country, providing them adequate financial cover at a reasonable cost. 245 Indian and foreign insurers and provident societies are taken over by the central government and nationalized. LIC continues to be the dominant life insurer even in the liberalized scenario of Indian insurance and is moving fast on a new growth trajectory surpassing its own past records. LIC has issued over one crore policies during the current year. It has crossed the milestone of issuing 1,01,32,955 new policies by 15th Oct, 2005, posting a healthy growth rate of 16.67% over the corresponding period of the previous year.

  54. 54. • Personal email id. Unit Linked Insurance Polices (ULIPS) Unit linked guidelines were notified by IRDA on 21st December 2005. The main intent of the guidelines was to ensure that they lead to greater transparency and understanding of these products among the insured, especially since the investment risk is borne by the policyholder. It is the endeavor of IRDA to enable the buyer to make the most informed decision possible when planning for financial security. We hope the following FAQs will enable a better insight to all buyers about the character and features of Unit linked Products. 1. What is a ULIP? ULIP is an abbreviation for Unit Linked Insurance Policy. A ULIP is a life insurance policy which provides a combination of risk cover and investment. The dynamics of the capital market have a direct bearing on the performance of the ULIPs. REMEMBER THAT IN A UNIT LINKED POLICY, THE INVESTMENT RISK IS GENERALLY BORNE BY THE INVESTOR. 2. What is a Unit Fund? The allocated (invested) portions of the premiums after deducting for all the charges and premium for risk cover under all policies in a particular fund as chosen by the policy holders are pooled together to form a Unit fund. 3. What is a Unit? It is a component of the Fund in a Unit Linked Policy.
  55. 55. 4. What Types of Funds do ULIP Offer? Most insurers offer a wide range of funds to suit one’s investment objectives, risk profile and time horizons. Different funds have different risk profiles. The potential for returns also varies from fund to fund. The following are some of the common types of funds available along with an indication of their risk characteristics.
  56. 56. General Description Nature of Investments Risk Category Equity Funds Primarily invested in company stocks with the general aim of capital appreciation Medium to High Income, Fixed Interest and Bond Funds Invested in corporate bonds, government securities and other fixed income instruments Medium Cash Funds Sometimes known as Money Market Funds — invested in cash, bank deposits and money market instruments Low Balanced Funds Combining equity investment with fixed interest instruments Medium 5. Are Investment Returns Guaranteed in a ULIP? Investment returns from ULIP may not be guaranteed.” In unit linked products/policies, the investment risk in investment portfolio is borne by the policy holder”. Depending upon the performance of the unit linked fund(s) chosen; the policy holder may achieve gains or losses on his/her investments. It should also be noted that the past returns of a fund are not necessarily indicative of the future performance of the fund. 6. What are the Charges, fees and deductions in a ULIP? ULIPs offered by different insurers have varying charge structures. Broadly, the different types of fees and charges are given below. However it may be noted that insurers have the right to revise fees and charges over a period of time.
  57. 57.  Premium Allocation Charge This is a percentage of the premium appropriated towards charges before allocating the units under the policy. This charge normally includes initial and renewal expenses apart from commission expenses.  Mortality Charges These are charges to provide for the cost of insurance coverage under the plan. Mortality charges depend on number of factors such as age, amount of coverage, state of health etc
  58. 58. Fund Management Fees These are fees levied for management of the fund(s) and are deducted before arriving at the Net Asset Value (NAV) .  Policy/ Administration Charges These are the fees for administration of the plan and levied by cancellation of units. This could be flat throughout the policy term or vary at a pre-determined rate.  Surrender Charges A surrender charge may be deducted for premature partial or full encashment of units wherever applicable, as mentioned in the policy conditions.  Fund Switching Charge Generally a limited number of fund switches may be allowed each year without charge, with subsequent switches, subject to a charge.  Service Tax Deductions Before allotment of the units the applicable service tax is deducted from the risk portion of the premium. Investors may note, that the portion of the premium after deducting for all charges and premium for risk cover is utilized for purchasing units
  59. 59. 7. What should one verify before signing the proposal? One has to verify the approved sales brochure for  all the charges deductible under the policy  payment on premature surrender  features and benefits  limitations and exclusions  lapsation and its consequences  other disclosures  Illustration projecting benefits payable in two scenarios of 6% and 10% returns as prescribed by the life insurance council.
  60. 60. 8. How much of the premium is used to purchase units? The full amount of premium paid is not allocated to purchase units. Insurers allot units on the portion of the premium remaining after providing for various charges, fees and deductions. However the quantum of premium used to purchase units varies from product to product. The total monetary value of the units allocated is invariably less than the amount of premium paid because the charges are first deducted from the premium collected and the remaining amount is used for allocating units. 9. Can one seek refund of premiums if not satisfied with the policy, after purchasing it? The policyholder can seek refund of premiums if he disagrees with the terms and conditions of the policy, within 15 days of receipt of the policy document (Free Look period). The policyholder shall be refunded the fund value including charges levied through cancellation of units subject to deduction of expenses towards medical examination, stamp duty and proportionate risk premium for the period of cover. 10. What is Net Asset Value (NAV)? NAV is the value of each unit of the fund on a given day. The NAV of each fund is displayed on the website of the respective insurers. 11. What is the benefit payable in the event of risk occurring during the term of the policy? The Sum Assured and/or value of the fund units is normally payable to the beneficiaries in the event of risk to the life assured during the term as per the policy conditions.
  61. 61. 12. What is the benefit payable on the maturity of the policy? The value of the fund units with bonuses, if any is payable on maturity of the policy. 13. Is it possible to invest additional contribution above the regular premium? Yes, one can invest additional contribution over and above the regular premiums as per their choice subject to the feature being available in the product. This facility is known as “TOP UP” facility. 14. Whether one can switch the investment fund after taking a ULIP policy? Yes. “SWITCH” option provides for shifting the investments in a policy from one fund to another provided the feature is available in the product. While a specified number of switches are generally effected free of cost, a fee is charged for switches made beyond the specified number. 15. Can a partial encashment/withdrawal be made? Yes, Products may have the “Partial Withdrawal” option which facilitates withdrawal of a portion of the investment in the policy. This is done through cancellation of a part of units.
  62. 62. 16. What happens if payment of premiums is discontinued? a) Discontinuance within three years of commencement – If all the premiums have not been paid for at least three consecutive years from inception, the insurance cover shall cease immediately. Insurers may give an opportunity for revival within the period allowed; if the policy is not revived within that period, surrender value shall be paid at the end of third policy anniversary or at the end of the period allowed for revival, whichever is later. b) Discontinuance after three years of commencement -- At the end of the period allowed for revival, the contract shall be terminated by paying the surrender value. The insurer may offer to continue the insurance cover, if so opted for by the policy holder, levying appropriate charges until the fund value is not less than one full year’s premium. When the fund value reaches an amount equivalent to one full year’s premium, the contract shall be terminated by paying the fund value.
  63. 63. 17. What information related to investments is provided by the Insurer to the policyholder? The Insurers are obliged to send an annual report, covering the fund performance during previous financial year in relation to the economic scenario, market developments etc. which should include fund performance analysis, investment portfolio of the fund, investment strategies and risk control measures adopted.
