IDBI Federal Life Insurance

Established in March 2008, IDBI Federal Life Life Insurance Company is a joint venture between three major companies- IDBI Bank- India’s premiere industrial bank, Federal bank – private sector bank and Ageas - international insurance company operating out of Europe. IDBI Bank holds 48% equity whereas Federal and Ageas hold 26% of equity each.

Product Portfolio:

Being a new entrant, IDBI is slowly increasing its portfolio which includes:

Retirement Plan: With rising inflation, it’s absolutely necessary to make provisions for the future which makes retirement plan an important financial decision. Better known as Pension plan, this plan takes care of financial needs after retirement by investing a part of your savings for limited period. Pension plan provides steady income after retirement and takes care of daily needs. The pension plan offered by IDBI Federal is Retiresurance.

Term Plan: A risk plan which provides comprehensive cover for your family in the unfortunate event of untimely demise. A term life insurance plan provides good cover at relatively nominal cost and has no survival benefits. IDBI Federal Life term plan is Termsurance.


Investment Plan:  Popularly known as ULIP, an investment plan invests part of your savings in equity or debt market as per your preference. The objective of investment plan is to give you returns which easily beat the rising costs since the usual returns in a bank are extremely low. ULIP’s offered by IDBI Federal Life are Wealthsurance, Bondsurance and Incomesurance.


Health Plan: Slightly different from health insurance, health plan provides cover for surgery costs, critical illness. A lump sum is paid irrespective of actual hospital bill. Healthsurance is IDBI Federal Life’s health plan.
