Going further than your regular health insurance, we at IFFCO-Tokio wish to offer customers the best comprehensive financial protection and that is where an individual personal accident policy comes into play.
What it covers?
Accidental death: If the insured meets an untimely death because of an accident, their dependants or nominees are paid death benefits, so they are covered against financial insecurity.
Permanent total disability: If the insured is rendered completely disabled in a permanent way that is beyond the ability of medicine to heal, they will be entitled to avail benefits pay-outs, as mentioned in the guidelines of their policy. Even if the disability was not prominent at the time of the accident, but arises as a result of an accident within a year of it occurring, the insured will be able to avail benefits.
Permanent partial disability: If the insured is rendered partially disabled in a permanent way that is beyond the ability of medicine to heal, they will be entitled to avail benefits pay-outs, as mentioned in the guidelines of their policy.
Temporary total disability: Depending on the individual personal accident policy you purchase, you may be able to avail temporary total disability coverage. Under this benefit, if the insured individual is rendered completely disabled, even if on a temporary basis because of an accident, they are eligible for benefit pay-outs. This type of disability refers to a condition that can be restored by treatment or medicine, and the insured can return to their original productive and working capacity.

You may cancel the policy by sending written notice to us under the registered post. We will then allow a refund as per the company guidelines, except for that insured person (s) for whom the claim has been preferred on us under the current policy.
An individual personal accident policy offers you financial protection and provides lump sum compensation in case you suffer from a fatal accident or an accident that leaves you permanently disabled. This compensation acts as a safety net and saves you and your family from a financial crunch as it also covers costs for hospitalization because of an accident.
Accidents cannot really be predicted and can happen to anyone. From motor accidents and rail accidents to natural calamities, the list is truly endless. It might seem scary to think of such eventualities, but you cannot let them intimidate you. Be financially prepared and opt for an individual personal accident insurance that can help you meet the expenses in case any crises were to arise in your life.
While a life insurance offers death benefits to your nominees and beneficiaries in the case of your death, health insurance provides compensation or reimbursement for your hospitalization and other medical expenses. An individual personal accident policy, on the other hand, will insure you against financial risks that may arise due to the permanent total disability or death of the policy holder in an accident. The policy strengthens your financial portfolio and helps secure the future of your dependent family members.
