Mr. Tahir Hasan is a 35 year old father of three children. He is working as a middle-level Manager in a Pharmaceutical company and earns enough to meet his personal and family needs, including the various liabilities he has incurred, such as:
What if, God Forbid, Tahir unexpectedly passes away?
How will his family/dependants cope up with these debt payments and avoid defaulting or incurring penalties? Typically, it is done either through one’s life savings or by borrowing further loans. Both ways mitigate only short-term risks and is never considered a long-term or permanent solution.
A better, safer, and more dignified way of protecting yourself and your family from defaulting on your financial obligations due to death is through the Takaful Shield Decreasing Term Plan.
Once covered through Takaful, Tahir’s family will no longer be liable to pay for their House Financing and/or Car Ijara liabilities. Instead, Takaful will pay off the entire outstanding debt amount.
Takaful Shield Decreasing Term Plan is a specialized Takaful plan. In this plan, the amount of Takaful coverage decreases over the term of the plan and may be designed to tie in with the outstanding amount of your debts.
The participant will have full coverage during the first year. However, this coverage will reduce each year by a small amount until it runs out completely on term completion. A lump sum is payable in the event of death to nullify the outstanding debt.
