  1. Death and permanent disability is covered in insurance and you’ll get it from any insurance company. However, loss of job insurance is not available in india as of now…. It comes as bundled package for one of icici prudential’s critical illness insurance. Bharti axa is supposed to come up with such insurance in 3rd quarter of this year.
    Only simple term insurances are being sold online. you would have to contact an insurance agent to get these types of insurance. however, you can place request to be contacted on insurance company’s website


  2. No insurance will cover your loss of job. There are disability policies out there, but they aren’t cheap. You will need an agent.

    You can shop for life insurance online, but I would still recommend speaking with an agent.


  3. In india i have no idea that any company compensate after loss of job but an account of permanent disability it will be covered in PA policy or you may have choose its as a rider with your life insurance policies.
