Additional Features and Benefits of SBI Life Saral Shield Plan


1.     There are 3 variants of this Policy

a.     Level Term Plan - This is a regular option where the sum assured is constant throughout the term of the policy and is does not vary or change even at the request of the policyholder.

b.     Decreasing Term Plan for Loan Protection - This option is available only if the policyholder has a loan taken under his name. This option protects the loan to such an extent that if something happens to the policyholder during the tenure of the loan and he dies, then the burden of the loan is taken up by the company and is paid off. The burden of the loan does not fall on the family. Since the loan outstanding keeps decreasing each year, the sum assured for loan protection also reduces subsequently. At a highly competitive price, this option is designed to help the family repay the outstanding loan and yet keep enjoying the assets.

c.     Decreasing Term Plan for Family Income Protection - This option is primarily if the life insured is the sole bread earner for the family and has quite a few numbers of dependents, then he would like to secure their future for a stable and regular income in case of any emergency where he dies.

Under Family Income Protection plan option, the Sum Assured chosen will be divided by total term (in months) and the resultant amount will be paid to the family for the remaining Policy Months after death as a monthly income. Moreover, your Nominee can ask for the discounted value of the remaining monthly payouts.


2.     Riders – There are 2 riders available in this plan.

a.     Accidental Death Benefit Rider

b.     Total and Permanent Disability Rider


The riders are available ONLY with Level Term Plan and not available with Decreasing Term Plans. The eligibility conditions for these riders are:
