With a wide variety of insurance plans to choose from, you may be confused about what is the right choice to protect your loved ones. Most individuals have a primary motive of securing themselves and their families during disease and death. Here we compare two such types of insurance: Term and Comprehensive, each with their own benefits.

Term Plan

Comprehensive Plan

Definition

Term insurance is a life insurance product offered by an insurance company which offers financial coverage to the policy holder for a specific time period. In case of death of the insured individual during the policy term, the death benefit is paid by the company to the beneficiary.

A comprehensive plan is a life insurance product that gives benefits over and above a life cover/death benefit. It also protects you through a critical illness cover.
