WHAT IS AVIVA LIFE INSURANCE?.

Life Insurance policies can be paid in a lump sum or in several installments; the amount of money you pay to your insurance company is called a premium. When you buy a Life Insurance policy you provide a measure of financial security to your beneficiaries (family, loved ones) so that upon death they w ill be able to meet financial responsibilities previously covered by your income. We recommend you to speak to a Licensed Life Insurance agent in your state by doing a search in our site, so that you can determine how much protection you need and can afford, as well as what type of Life Insurance policy to choose.

These are the most common Life Insurance types:


y y

Term Life Insurance Permanent / Whole Life Insurance

There are other variations of Life Insurance policies, such as, Universal Life, Excess Interest Whole Life, Variable Life, Limited-Payment Whole Life and Single-Premium Whole Life. We recommend you to speak to a local licensed insurance agent so that you can learn more about Life Insurance. Please feel free to contact the licensed agents listed on our site for more.

AVIVA Life Insurance Overview:Life insurance is something that not everybody is comfortable talking about, or even thinking about. When we are young and healthy, we feel immortal. The unexpected death of a loved one or us is the furthest thing from our minds. However, the fact of the matter is it is never too early to start thinking about your familys protection in the event of tragedy. All life insurance professionals agree that the sooner you start thinking about life insurance the more options and the more affordable life insurance can be. There are many logical an swers to the question Why Buy Life Insurance?... What to Look For Its easy to get a free quote on affordable life insurance for your family. However a low monthly premium should not be your only consideration when shopping for a life insurance policy. You need to carefully consider what is best for your family. People often do not realize just how much money is needed to support a family given the tragic loss of a primary income provider. Besides the monthly expenses such as rent and mortgage that your spouse may now be left with, have you considered the cost of a funeral, health benefits which may not be continued in the event of death of a working spouse, the addit ional childcare expenses that may now be required of a single parent? The list goes on and on. In this discussion of life insurance basics we will help you make an informed and educated decision on the type and amount of life insurance that is best for you r needs and your budget.

17

TYPES OF AVIVA LIFE INSURANCE

What is AVIVA Life Insurance? Life insurance at its most basic level is a contract between you and a life i nsurance company to pay a sum of money to your beneficiaries in the event of your death, to cover expenses and make up for the lack of your income. Life Insurance premiums are based on the type of insurance you buy, the benefit amount, and your chances of dying based on your over all health and lifestyle, during the period when the policy is in effect. There are basically two types of life insurance. You may have heard of them Term Life Insurance and Permanent Life insurance. In this discussion we will review in broad terms the difference between the two. You can find more details on Term Life Insurance and the various types of Permanent Life Insurance at any time by accessing these links.
y

Term Life Insurance As the name implies, Term Life insurance is life insurance that you purchase for a specific length of time, usually 5, 10 or 20 years. At the end of the term you are given the option of renewing the policy. Term Life insurance is strictly that, only life insurance that pays a death benefit, as opposed to Permanent Life insurance policies that accrue cash value. Term Life pays a lump sum single benefit at the time of death. Your family can use that money to cover funeral expenses, immediat e bills, and invest in annuities to make up for the loss of salary to pay on going monthly expenses. Term Life insurance is the easiest and most affordable life insurance to obtain. Term Life insurance is great for young families just starting out.
18

Permanent Life Insurance Unlike Term Life insurance, there is no fixed time limit to Permanent Life insurance, so long as you keep making your monthly premium payments the contract between you and the life insurance company remains in effect. The other key difference between permanent and term life insurance is that a Permanent Life insurance policy gains cash value Part of your monthly premium goes into a tax deferred investment account that you do have access to while you are alive. There are various types of Permanent Life in surance such as Whole Life, Universal Life and Variable-Universal Life.

How Much Do I Need?

That is a very good question, especially since the answer will change over time depending on your age and life circumstances. You may feel you may not even need life insurance at all if you are young and single, but with the average cost of a funeral being $10,000.00 or more, you have reason to consider it. Once you have people that depend on your income such as a spouse and children, life insurance is an absolute necessity. Even then your needs will change as your standard of living changes and your family grows. A young family with an infant and a small rental apartment will obviously require less life insurance then a family with a house, a mortgage, and two kids in college. Feel free to use our benefits calculator to help determine the right amount for your circumstances. No matter what stage of life you are in here are some basic guidelines and considerations to determine the amount of life insurance you will nee d.
y

Be sure to consider the cost of a funeral. Even if your final wishes do not include a traditional burial, the cost needs to be factored into your death benefit. It is advisable to find out a good approximate cost of whatever final arrangements you chose. Also when considering final costs that
19

may be incurred by your beneficiaries be sure to consider all federal and state taxes that may be due immediately upon your death. These usually amount to 10% of the total value of your Estate.
y

The next thing to consider is the effect of your loss of income on your family. You need to project how long you think your family will need to make up for your lost income. Will your spouse work? Remarry in a short amount of time? You need to discuss such matters. Consider a ll of your debt and your monthly expenses determine the amount of money that your family needs yearly to make up for your lost income, and multiply that by the amount of years you think they will need it and you will have arrived at your minimum required a mount of Life Insurance. So if you think they will need $50,000.00 a year for 10 years, you will need at least a $ 500,000.00 policy.

Finally consider the amount of debt that you family will be faced with upon your death, you may want them to have enough t o pay that off in a lump sum, rather then making that part of their monthly expenses determined in (2) above.

Once you have done your best to determine your needs, it is advisable to discuss benefit amounts with one of our qualified life insurance agents, who will help ensure you get the right amount of coverage that is best for you.
Unit Linked Insurance plans

Unit linked Insurance plans (ULIP) is life insurance solution that provides for the benefits of protection and flexibility in investment. The investment is denoted as units and is represented by the value that it has attained called as Net Asset Value (NAV). The policy value at any time varies according to the value of the underlying assets at the time. ULIP provides multiple benefits to the consumer.
20

The benefits include: Life protection Investment Options Transparency Adjustable Life Cover Flexibility Liquidity Tax planning Investment and Savings Options to take additional cover against - Death due to accident , Disability, Critical Illness, Surgeries etc.

In a ULIP, the insurer deducts charges towards life insurance (mortality charges), administration charges and fund management charges. The rest of the premium is used to invest in a fund that invests money in stocks or bonds. The policyholders share in the fund is represented by the number of units. The value of the unit is determined by the total value of all the investments made by the fund divided by the number of units. If the insurance company offers a range of funds, the insured can direct the company to invest in the fund of his choice. Insurers usually offer four choices:

Bond fund, Secured Fund, Balanced Fund, Growth Fund

So, in ULIPS is that the investor knows exactly what is happening to his money and two, it allows the investor to choose the assets into which he wants his funds invested. Unit plans are investment plans for those who realise the worth of hard -earned money. These plans help you see your savings yield rich benefits and help you save tax even if you don't have consistent income.

21

Unit-linked insurance plans, ULIPs, are distinct from the more familiar with profits policies sold for decades by the Life Insurance Corporation. With profits policies are called so because investment gains (profits) are distributed to policyholders in the form of a bonus announced every year.

ULIPs also serve the same function of providing insurance protection against death and provision of long-term savings, but they are structured differently. In with profits policies, the insurance company credits the premium to a common pool called the life fund, after setting aside funds for the risk premium on life insurance management expenses.

Every year, the insurer calculates how much has to be paid to settle death and maturity claims. The surplus in the life fund left after meeting these liabilities is credited to policyholders accounts in the form of a bonus.

In a ULIP too, the insurer deducts charges towards life insurance (mortality charges), administration charges and fund managemen t charges. The rest of the premium is used to invest in a fund that invests money in stocks or bonds. The policyholders share in the fund is represented by the number of units.

The value of the unit is determined by the total value of all the investments made by the fund divided by the number of units. If the insurance company offers a range of funds, the insured can direct the company to invest in the fund of his choice. Insurers usually offer three choices- an equity (growth) fund, balanced fund and a fund which invests in bonds. In both with profits policies as well as unit -linked policies, a large part of the first year premium goes towards paying the agents commissions.

22

Why do insurers prefer ULIPs?

Insurers love ULIPs for several reasons. Most important of all, insurers can sell these policies with less capital of their own than what would be required if they sold traditional policies.

In traditional with profits policies, the insurance company bears the investment risk to the extent of the assured amount. In ULIPs, the policyholder bears most of the investment risk.

Since ULIPs are devised to mobilise savings, they g ive insurance companies an opportunity to get a large chunk of the asset management business, which has been traditionally dominated by mutual funds.

LIMITATIONS
70

i)

Sample size is small and may not be representative of the universe of study i.e. DELHI and Udhampur city.

ii)

Some times no exact data is found as customers doesnt provide exact information.

iii)

Efforts for the marketing of company products are less and hence there is less awareness an d usage of most of the AVIVA policies.

iv)

Some question carry multiple response and percentage have not been computed for them.

v)

The analysis is based entirely on responses of individuals and may vary with future changing trends.

vi)

Time constraint.

vii)

As the data is collected in the month of dec to feb, the result could not be considered consistent for the whole year.

viii) I faced problem of avoidance towards giving

information. The

customer thinks it to be Useless and wastage of time.

In spite of the above limitations an effort has been made to make the analysis possible and reliable after cross examination of the dat a supplied by the concern branch of the company.

CONCLUSION
Working with AVIVA Life Insurance for two months was a very nice and a good learning experience. It has helped me a lot learning about different kinds of
79

investments and the pros-corns of its. It has also helped me to know about how works in a corporate world is done. Though we had a very nice experience but we had to face some problems even, like we were not given any identity card by the company so sometime it became very difficult for us to convince people that we are from the company and not an agent. Mostly small investors are not satisfied with the charges of the AVIVA ULIP. 1. Customers are much more relying upon AVIVAULIPS Plans. 2. People dont rely upon private insurance sector. 3. All products are not attractive to the customers so that kind of products a re very hard to sale. 4. Less number of traditional plans thats why people who really need traditional plans are still not satisfied. 5. Majority of the customers are satisfied with the beneficial schemes the company. 6. Majority of the customers are satisfied with the service of the company.
Suggestions and Recommendations ;-

Following are a few suggestions; like the company should carry out market research on a regular basis. This will facilitate indication of customer groups, analysis of the customer needs and requirements. It will be helped in engendering valuable feed back to the officers to assess the level of customer satisfaction, which in turn could be used in upgrading the service levels;
