Do Term Insurance Premium Rates Increase Over Time? up-arrow

Usually, the premium charged for a term insurance plan remains the same throughout the policy's tenure. This is one of the reasons why it is suggested to buy term insurance at a younger age when your premium amount is lower and remains the same for the complete tenure of the policy.

Does the Premium Amount Change if I Add Riders to my Term Plan? up-arrow

Riders provide additional benefits and can be added to the base policy for a nominal premium. They increase the total premium, but the change is minimal compared to the total premium amount.

How Can I Reduce my Term Plan Premium? up-arrow

Here are a few pointers that can help you optimise your term plan, i.e., maximum benefits with minimum premium:  

  • Plan at an early stage. The younger you are, the lesser the premium.
  • Choose a longer tenure. Since it spreads the payment over a more extended period, the premium reduces.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle. Suppose you compare the premiums for a person with harmful habits like smoking, alcohol consumption etc., against someone who maintains a healthy lifestyle. In that case, you will notice that the difference is quite significant.
  • Try to pay your premium annually rather than breaking it into half-yearly, quarterly, or monthly, increasing the premium.
