Term Insurance means life insurance which covers you only for death. In the case of death of the policyholder during the policy period, the insurance company pays a death claim equal to the Sum Assured or Death Benefit. In case you survive the policy period, there will be no maturity benefit i.e. nothing is returned to you. Death claim may be paid as a lump-sum amount, or in instalments, or as a combination of both.
