Riders Suitable with Money-Back Plans
To help you choose riders that suit the plan you choose, there is a list provided down below -
1. Guaranteed Insurability Rider
This rider is offered to the life assured to allow them to purchase additional coverage in the policy period. A guaranteed insurability rider shows most benefits when there has been a considerably large change in your lifestyles, such as the birth of your child, marriage, or an increase in your income. If your health goes downhill with age, you will be able to avail of extra coverage without giving any evidence. This rider may also provide a renewal of your base policy in the end.
2. Accidental Death Rider
An accidental death rider pays the life assured an additional amount of death benefit if the insured dies accidentally. Generally, the additional benefit paid on the death of the life assured due to an accident is equivalent to the amount of the death benefit offered by the policy. This means that it doubles the benefit. In the unfortunate event of death due to accidental injury, the life assured’s family gets twice the amount of the policy. This is why this rider is also called a double indemnity rider. An accidental death rider can be an ideal choice because the double benefit will ensure good care of your surviving family's expenses if you are the only financial provider for your family.
