An endowment policy is a life insurance contract designed to pay a lump sum after a specific term (on its 'maturity') or on death. Typical maturities are ten, fifteen or twenty years up to a certain age limit. Some policies also pay out in the case of critical illness. They are plans that not only cover the individual’s life in case of an unfortunate event, but also offer a maturity benefits at the end of the term. After a specific period of time- called 'maturity'- they are designed to pay a lump sum amount. The insurance company will pay this assured sum to the endowment policy holder’s nominees in case of holder’s death or to the holder himself on a fixed date in the future. Upon maturity, the insured receives the sum assured plus the bonus for the term of the policy, if any. Thereafter, the insured is not covered by the policy.
