In Covid-19 Suitation
Post-Covid-19, a variety of special insurance policies were brought to the market, in which the maximum emphasis was given on the expenditure on the treatment of the disease. A traditional insurance policy is already in place in case of death, but there has been no discussion of Prime Minister Jeevan Jyoti Insurance Scheme. Now that Covid has hit lower middle class to lower-income group families in the country, it is necessary for everyone to remember at once whether they have paid an annual premium of Rs 330 or not. If yes, then check what year it is for, and make sure to discuss it with grieving family members, so that it can help them in dealing with any unforeseen situation.
In case of death due to Covid, compensation of up to Rs 2 lakh is given from the Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana. If you have only paid the premium for Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Bima Yojana, then no compensation for death due to Covid will be provided as it will not be treated as an accident.
