Premium paying frequency
Free Cover Limit (FCL)
The free cover limit, which is available to you, represents a maximum sum assured, such that all Members of the group whose Sum Assured/Coverage falls under this limit, are granted the Insurance Cover without any medical tests and are not required to submit evidence of insurability to qualify for protection.
Members, whose benefits exceed the free cover limit need to provide evidence of insurability in order to qualify for the higher coverage; any loadings or ratings, which may result from such evidence, will be applied only to the benefit in excess over the free cover limit. Evidence of insurability will be determined by underwriting.
FProtection for beloved
Along with your employees/members, you may also cover their spouses.
If spouses are covered on a compulsory basis, cover is provided on the same basis as for Members covered on a compulsory basis; i.e., no exclusions shall apply and the premium rating shall be in line with that of the compulsory groups. If spouses are covered on a voluntary basis, then the same exclusions and premium rate adjustments are applied as for Members covered on a voluntary basis.
Individual Conversion Option
The member has the option to continue their coverage as an individual policy in the event the policyholder has surrendered the policy
The policyholder can choose to cover new members during the policy year by paying pro-rate premium. The policyholder should inform ABSLI with the list of mid-year joiners and the risk commencement date will be as per the scheme rules.
In case of inadequate premium, the cover will begin from the date of receipt of the full premium.
If a member leaves the scheme during the policy year (due to reasons other than death) ABSLI will refund the pro rate premium to the policyholder or member depending upon who has paid the premium. The policyholder should inform ABSLI with the list of mid-year deletions for Members leaving the scheme within 30 days of leaving the scheme. The risk will cease from the date of leaving. In case the policyholder intimates to ABSLI a member exit more than 30 days late, the cover will cease from the date of exit but the refund will be calculated from the date of intimation.
Increase or decrease in Sum Assured
The policyholder will be allowed to increase or decrease the cover amount of the members during the year according to the definition of the cover for the group.
