The claim will be eligible only if the permanent partial disability persists for a minimum of 6 consecutive calendar months from its onset.

5. Child Education Benefit - Applicable for plans where children are covered only, the accidents can have a profound impact on families, particularly when they result in the death, permanent total disability (PTD), or permanent partial disability (PPD) of a parent. Children are often the most affected by these situations. That's why Niva Bupa offers coverage that includes:

  • Lump sum payout for education expenses which is 10% of the base sum insured, maximum up to 5 lakhs.
