Spouse Term Insurance Plans In India 2021

Published On Jun 22, 2021 2:00 PM By InsuranceDekho

Spouse term insurance plans were introduced to give due respect to both the spouses and ensure that the life of both partners is equally important. A spouse term insurance plan provides a payout on the death of either of the two policyholders and in some cases a regular income to pre-mentioned living family members. Some term insurance with spouse cover also offer riders such as critical illness cover, dismemberment, accidental death and permanent disability. 

In this way, a term plan for husband and wife ensures that the family is financially protected even if either of the policyholders is not there. Below are some of the spouse term plans currently present in India.
