 What is an insurance contract? 

An agreement entered into between the insured and the insurer for the purpose of transferring the potential risk of human life or property is called an insurance contract. In an insurance contract, the insured transfers the risk in return for payment of installments or premium for a specified period and the insurer accepts the risk for a specified period by receiving the premium. That is, if there is a loss of property of the insured as a result of any possible accident, or the death of the life or at the end of the life insurance period, the insurance contract is the agreement to pay the amount determined by the insurer to the insured or his nominee.

 Why invest in premium?

Insurance companies invest the surplus (if any) from their premium income after paying insurance claims, commission, salary-bonuses of development officers and management expenses in safe and profitable sectors for the following reasons:

A. Payment of Insurance Claims: Interest, bonus etc. are added to the premium collected and naturally the amount of insurance claim is much higher than the epremium received. Hence there is no alternative to invest the premium to equalize the potential claims by investing the premium received in safe and profitable sectors.

b. Covering financial shortfall: Premiums received from insurance customers are much less than the insurance claims payable. Premium investment is essential to avoid any financial difficulties in paying insurance claims on time.

c. Support to National Economic Activities: Huge premiums collected by the insurance industry must be invested in government development activities, increasing national production through development of domestic industries and strengthening national economic strength through export of surplus production.

Premium investment is very important in insurance business. The success of an insurance company depends to a large extent on the sound and efficient management of investment activities.

What is an agent and what does an agent do?

Agent: The person who sells the insurance scheme/insurance policy to the customer on behalf of the insurance company is called agent or insurance representative. Bima Pratidhi acts as a bridge between the insured and the insurance company. Section 124 of the Insurance Act-2010 has provisions relating to insurance agents. Insurance agents get commission from insurance companies as per the law by the authorities.

Job of Agent: The role of agent is very important in life insurance business. An insurance agent does the following on behalf of an insurance company:

      (1) Selling insurance policies of appointed insurance companies.

     (2) To induce the insured to pay renewal premiums on time.

     (3) Connects the insured with the insurance company for payment of insurance claims.

To carry out the above functions, the insurance company takes measures to establish the relationship between the insured. This is why agent activity is very important in life insurance business expansion. If the activities of the agent are done faithfully, the insurance products will be highly successful in marketing.
