At a Glance

- Offers ReAssure “Forever”, where first claim in the policy triggers ReAssure forever, it is unlimited and Up to Base Sum Insured
- Booster+ which helps carry forward unused base sum insured to the next policy year, up to 10X
ReAssure 2.0 is a first-of-its- kind indemnity plan which makes seemingly impossible and unheard of product offerings, now possible. Bettering on its 3 powerful benefits – ReAssure, Booster and Safeguard offered under current ReAssure plan, ReAssure 2.0 provides a ‘+’ variant of these benefits to offer unmatched benefits. The comprehensive plan provides complete peace of mind to customers to live a stress-free life without any financial constraints.
The key features under ReAssure 2.0 include –
ReAssure becomes ReAssure+ and has two components:
ReAssure “Forever”: In this unique benefit the base sum insured will be triggered after the first claim and once triggered it will remain forever. This means that the customer will always have a sum-insured equal to his base sum insured available to him after the customer has made his first claim, that too unlimited times in a policy.
Lock the clock: In this revolutionary benefit, the age at which the consumer enters the policy gets locked, until the customer makes his first claim in the policy.
Hence the customer gets to pay the applicable premium as per the entry age, till the first claim comes. After which the regular age band wise premiums will be paid.
Booster+ benefit: This benefit allows the unutilized base sum insured to be carried forward to the next policy year. The sum insured amount will keep on accumulating with each renewal till up to 5X and 10X, depending on whether the customer has opted for platinum+ or titanium+ variant.
Safeguard+: This optional benefit lets one claim for all non-payable items as per Non-Payables Annexure in addition to safeguarding the Booster+ benefit if the claim in a policy year is up to 1 lakh. This means that in case the claim amount is less than 1 lakh the entire base sum insured will still be carried forward without any deductions to the next policy year.
