Return of premium term plan
A term insurance policy is a plain vanilla product, which only charges you for insuring your life. This means, you only pay for the cost of insurance. So, if you survive the policy term, you don’t get anything back. And on death of the policyholder during the policy term, the beneficiary gets the sum assured, or the insurance money, and the policy terminates.
