Plan options HDFC Life Click 2 Protect Life Policy

This plan offers 3 basic options. Let us understand them in detail.

Option 1 - Life & Rebalance - In this option, your cover amount is split into 2 parts. Part 1 provides your Life Cover Benefit and Part 2 provides you a Critical Illness Benefit. At any point if you are detected with a critical illness covered in this plan, you will be paid the critical illness benefit (Part 2) component and all your future premiums will be waived - your life cover (Part 1) will continue.

This rebalancing is keeping in mind that your life cover requirements will decrease with age and the chances of critical illness increases with age.

At the beginning of the policy term, your Life Cover Benefit (Part 1) will be set at 80% of your overall cover and the balance 20% will be for the Critical Illness Benefit (Part 2). Every year, your Critical Illness Benefit will be increased and the Life Cover will get reduced. So, the overall cover amount will always be the same - the split between Critical Illness Benefit and Life Cover Benefit keeps changing every year.

The increase in Critical Illness Benefit every year = (30% x Total Cover amount / Policy Term). So Life cover will see the same decrease every year.

Example: Let us better understand this with the help of an example. Suppose, Mr. Kamath buys a 1 crore overall cover with a policy term of 10 years. The 1 crore cover consists of 2 components - Life Cover Benefit & Critical Illness Benefit. At the start of the plan the split will be as follows:

Life Cover Benefit = 80% of 1 crore = Rs. 80 lakhs
Critical Illness Benefit = 20% of 1 crore = Rs. 20 lakhs

Increase in Critical Illness Benefit in the 2nd year = 30% x 1 crore / 2 = 15 lakhs

So this is how his cover will look every year.

Year Part 1
Life Cover Benefit
Part 2
Critical Illness Benefit
1 80 lakhs 20 lakhs
2 65 lakhs 35 lakhs
3 55 lakhs 45 lakhs
4 47.5 lakhs 52.5 lakhs
5 41.5 lakhs 58.5 lakhs
6 36.5 lakhs 63.5 lakhs
7 32.2 lakhs 67.8 lakhs
8 28.5 lakhs 71.5 lakhs
9 25.1 lakhs 74.9 lakhs
10 22.1 lakhs 77.9 lakhs

I hope this clarifies how the rebalancing of the life cover benefit and critical illness benefit happens.


  • In this option, you can go in for the Return of Premium at the end of the policy term
  • You cannot opt for a whole life cover in this option

Option 2 - Life Protect - This option works life a normal life cover plan. In case of death of the policyholder, the nominee gets the life cover as a lumpsum amount.


  • You can opt for a Fixed Term cover or a Whole Life cover
  • In case you opt for Fixed Term cover, you can also opt for the Return of Premium at the end of the policy term
  • The Return of Premium option is not available in case your choose the Whole Life cover option

Option 3 - Income Plus - In this option, you get a life cover for the duration of the policy term. Additionally, 0.1% of the life cover is paid as a Monthly Benefit after you attain the age of 60 years till your policy matures. You will be paid the Maturity Benefit at the end of the policy term.

Maturity Benefit = (110% of all premiums paid) - (sum of monthly income paid out).


  • You can opt for a Fixed Term cover or a Whole Life cover
  • The Return of Premium option is not available in this option

Example: Let us understand this plan better with the help of an example. Suppose Mr. Kamath, age 45, takes a 1 crore cover for Whole Life under this option. He chooses a limited premium payment term of 10 years.

  • He pays premiums for 10 years only
  • After the age of 60, he will get a monthly income of 10,000 for the rest of his life
  • In case of his death after he turns 64 years. He had already received Rs. 4.8 lakhs as monthly income. So his nominee will not receive 1 crore - 4.8 lakhs = Rs. 95.2 lakhs


This pretty much explains the working of this plan.
