Canara HSBC Oriental Bank of Commerce Life Insurance Future Smart Plan is a Unit Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP) for the benefit of a child, where the parent is the Life Insured. Thus, it is a Non-Traditional Insurance Plan without Bonus Facility.
 
How it works – In this plan, premium needs to be paid at least for 10 years or till the end of the Policy Tenure, as selected. There are 2 variants of this plan:
  • Option 1- Death Only
  • Option 2- Death or Total & Permanent Disability (TPD)
 
Thus, in this plan, under Option 2, if the Life Insured meets with a Disability, then all future premiums are paid by the company and the plan continues as scheduled. The Fund Value is paid on survival till the end of the Policy Tenure as Maturity Benefit.
