Benefits of ABSLI Life Shield Plan

Your family doesn’t need to compromise on the lifestyle under any unfortunate situation. Empower your loved ones to face unforeseen circumstances of life.

Death Benefit
Death Benefit
If the life insured passes away during the policy term, the nominee(s) will receive the death benefit mentioned in the policy. The death benefit amount is the sum assured minus any previously paid terminal illness benefit. Once the death benefit is paid, the policy is terminated. Please read the policy brochure for more details.
Terminal Illness Benefit
Terminal Illness Benefit
In case the life insured is diagnosed with a Terminal Illness, 50% of the sum assured is paid immediately subject to a maximum of ₹ 2.5 crores. Plus we will waive off all the future premiums to reduce the financial burden in this scenario. On subsequent death during the policy period, the remaining sum assured will be paid to the nominee. Please refer to the policy brochure for more details.
Waiver of Premium
Waiver of Premium
All future premiums are waived under two situations: Total Permanent Disability(TPD) and Critical Illness (CI) diagnosis of the life insured. Waiver of premium is applicable if the life insured suffers from TPD/CI, whichever is earlier. This is a single time benefit and does not affect the death benefit of the policy. Please read the policy brochure for more details.
Maturity Benefits
Maturity Benefits
Maturity benefit is paid to the life insured if he/she survives the policy. On the policy maturity date, the sum of all the premiums (excluding GST, premiums paid towards underwriting extras and/or riders as may be applicable) is paid back. This is applicable only if the plan option has a return of premium feature.
Joint Life Protection
Joint Life Protection
This is an optional benefit. Under this option you (primary life insured) and your spouse (secondary life insured), both can get covered under a single policy. 50% of the applicable sum assured will be assigned to your spouse. Please read the policy brochure to know the plan options that come with Joint Life Protection.
Enhance Life Stage Protection
Enhance Life Stage Protection
Your protection needs may vary at different stages of life. The life cover amount you need will increase with life events like getting married and childbirth, etc. With enhanced life stage protection, you can increase the life cover amount of the existing policy. Please read the brochure to know the plan options that have this benefit.
Rider Options

How does ABSLI Life Shield Plan work?
  • Atul (aged 35) and Nina (aged 30) made a couple and were non-smokers. They chose ABSLI Life Shield with Joint Life Cover for 30 years.
