What is a No Claim Bonus?

What you need to know ?

This concept works on the same lines as the no-claim bonus on your car insurance. A Policyholder, who hasn’t made any claim in a year, can use the bonus to their benefit the following year.

Similarly, CARE offers a 10% increase in the policy sum insured for every claim-free year, with no change in premium. So, a policy with a sum insured of Rs 5 lakh, will get an extended cover of Rs 50,000 the following year at the same premium. A claim-free third year will see him earning another ten per cent extra cover on his base sum insured, taking the total to Rs 6 lakh. A maximum bonus of up to 50 per cent is permissible.

In case of claim, the accumulated bonus is reduced by 10%.
