What is Endowment Policy?
An endowment policy is a type of life insurance plan which not only covers your life, it also helps save money. It is insurance cum savings plan. If the policyholder dies within the term of the plan, the nominees get the sum assured + accrued bonuses. If the policy holder survives till the maturity of the plan, he/she gets the sum assured + all bonuses. An endowment plan is an excellent way to save over a specific period of time and enjoy a lump sum at maturity, on surviving the term of the plan.
