The policyholders can customise the plans by availing of additional protection through two unit deducting riders, namely the Tata AIG Life Accidental Death Benefit Linked Rider and the Tata AIG Life Critical Illness Linked Rider (lump sum benefit).

Customers of both the plans can choose from a wide range of 7 investment funds as per their risk profile. In addition, they can also benefit from Tata AIG Life’s portfolio strategies — systematic money allocation and regular transfer (SMART) to optimise one's returns due to rupee cost averaging or automatic asset allocation (AAA) to benefit from age appropriate allocation of assets.
