Indeed life is nothing without goals…
..and I am an ardent follower of this thought. Having a goal in life is not just exciting but also gives us a purpose in life. Sometime back, I talked about being a part of the Bajaj Allianz Life’s Bloggers’ Meet and with an enlightening session on #LifeGoals, I was motivated to plan for my #LifeGoals. And today, the Company is back with an attractive investment solution that will enable an individual to fulfil his/her LifeGoal.
What is it?
Well, Bajaj Allianz Life launched one-of- its-kind ULIP with return of mortality charges. We are all aware of Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance Company being one of the leading private life insurers in India and with this launch, they have topped my list of the best insurers in India. The ULIP plan, termed as Bajaj Allianz Life Goal Assure is a value-packed, goal-based Unit-linked Insurance Plan (ULIP). It is designed to give the life maximizers and retail investors with not only investment benefits but also life cover.
What’s new in the Bajaj Allianz Life Goal Assure Plan?
It brings with it two unique features:
● Return of Mortality Charges (ROMC): The Return of Mortality Charges
(ROMC) feature which guarantees that the policyholder will get back the cost of life
cover once the policy matures, and
● Return Enhancer: At maturity, the policyholder who opts to receive the life cover in
instalments and not in lump-sum, over a period of five years will receive the benefit
of Return Enhancer, which is an addition of 0.5% of each due instalment.
The ROMC feature enhances the value of the customer’s corpus on maturity and with the Return Enhancer feature, the customer’s fund value continues to participate in the fund(s) of their choice during the settlement period.
“I believe our new age ULIP with its unique features will be a game changer for the industry. Today’s generation of retail investors, life maximisers as we identify them, have expanded the definition of #LifeGoals and are looking for investment solutions that are value packed, convenient and backed by reliable investment performance. We are confident that the new product will offer a powerful proposition to new age investors”, said Tarun Chugh, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance Company Ltd.
