Term insurance is a fantastic product that every single family needs to have, for its earning member(s). It is a pure life insurance policy that gives your family a cover in case of an eventuality to the bread winner. A single term policy of adequate cover will suffice for entire insurance needs.

We typically recommend an insurance cover of 4-8 times your annual income and for as long a term as is available for your age. Find out the ideal cover for you using this calculator.

Met Suraksha is a vanilla term plan from Metlife. It has low and affordable premiums for high coverage. Thus if the life insured dies within the policy tenure, the nominee would get the Sum Assured. No riders are available with this policy. Accidental Death and Critical Illness Rider are available with this policy. We recommend a standalone critical illness cover as that gives wider range of cover in terms of number of illnesses, renewability and comes at lower premium. Personal accident cover is really an additional expense to be avoided as it covers your life which is already covered by the term policy.
